 Brave in Self-revolution: The Distinct Character of the Communist Party of China

In recent years, experts and scholars at home and abroad have made great efforts to explore and analyze the secret code of the success of the CPC from different perspectives and the reasons why the CPC can do so. The basic consensus formed is that the CPC can always adhere to the leadership of the cause of revolution, construction and reform, and the glorious tradition and politics of self-revolution. Advantages.

The Partys Essential Attribute

Never forget the first heart, remember the mission means never forget that we are Communists, we are revolutionaries, and we should always maintain the revolutionary spirit. The Communist Party of China leads the people to seize the whole countrys political power in order to carry forward the revolutionary spirit and carry out the revolutionary struggle. Under the long-term ruling conditions, it still needs to carry forward the revolutionary spirit and carry out construction, and put the revolutionary spirit of the new era of reform and innovation into the practice of reform, opening up and modernization. Under the conditions of deepening reform in an all-round way, expanding opening to the outside world and developing the socialist market economy, our Party, as the core of leadership and the ruling party, should always maintain the spirit of self-revolution and constantly create a new situation of reform, opening up and modernization.

The Communist Party of China has always adhered to the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out: The reason why our Party has the courage to revolutionize itself is that it has no special interests of its own except the interests of the state, the nation and the people. The Marxist party is a party that seeks the interests of the vast majority of the people. It does not seek its own interests at all. It always considers the interests of the people as its fundamental starting point. This inevitably requires the Party members and cadres to properly handle the relationship between individual and collective interests, current and long-term interests, local interests and overall interests in the revolution, construction and reform. We should adhere to the principle of clear distinction between public and private, self-restraint and public service, strive to be willing to dedicate and pay, get rid of the limitations of personal interests, departmental interests and local interests, and demonstrate the courage of the Communists in self-revolution with vigor and magnanimity. As General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out, Only by not seeking self-interest can we seek fundamentals and gain profits, and only by proceeding from the nature and fundamental purpose of the Party and the fundamental interests of the people can we examine ourselves; only by not concealing shortcomings, avoiding problems, neglecting faults, overcoming shortcomings, solving problems and admitting mistakes can we avoid them. And correct the mistakes.

The Soviet Communist Party and the Communist International under its leadership used to be the center of the world communist movement. After World War II, the powerful Soviet Union became a decisive superpower in the world political arena. The Soviet model once became a model for the revolution and construction of the vast majority of socialist countries. However, in the early 1990s, the once powerful Communist Party of the Soviet Union suddenly collapsed and the Soviet Union collapsed. There are many reasons, but the most important one is the internal cause of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union itself. In the long-term ruling process, the Soviet Communist Party weakened its leadership and neglected the Partys construction, especially abandoned the fine traditions and political advantages of self-revolution, which led to the change of the Soviet Communist Party from being full of vitality and courage to self-revolution to being conservative and rigid in thought, solidified in system and mechanism, and stubborn illness, finally losing its spirit of self-revolution. And the Party and the country will perish.

Since the founding of the Party, our Party has attached great importance to and strengthened the Partys ideological leadership, constantly promoted the integration of the universal principles of Marxism with the practice of Chinese revolution, construction and reform, and formed the socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era of Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the important thought of Three Representatives, the scientific concept of development and Xi Jinping. Thought, adhere to the latest theoretical achievements of the Sinicization of Marxism in one continuous line to arm the whole Party, unified thinking, unified will and unified action. Based on the situation and tasks faced by the Party and the state in different periods, we should carry forward the spirit of self-revolution and lead the whole Party and the people of all nationalities to the right path. Neither the old closed and rigid way nor the evil way of changing flags and flags, and always adhering to and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics, are the keys to the success of the Communist Party of China in leading the cause of reform, opening up and modernization. After the political line is determined, cadres are the decisive factor. Purifying and purifying Party members and cadres with self-revolutionary spirit and building a clean and honest Marxist party is one of the important reasons why the Communist Party of China has always maintained vigor and vitality and why the Communist Party of China has been able to do so.

The survival of the fittest in the historical torrent

Since modern times, there have been many political parties in Chinas political arena, and ultimately only the Communist Party of China has played a decisive role in Chinas political development process. The Kuomintang is the pioneer of modern party politics in China. The Kuomintang was originally a revolutionary party. However, it abandoned its revolutionary stand and lost its revolutionary spirit shortly after it came into power. In the later period of the mainlands ruling, there appeared a series of problems, such as depression, slack rules and regulations, factions, corruption and degeneration. Just as Chiang Kai-shek had to admit before his defeat of Taiwan: Since the War of Resistance Against Japan, the Partys credibility in society has declined dramatically, and our revolutionary work has followed suit and made no progress. To be honest, no revolutionary party at all times, at all times and in all countries has the same spirit, no discipline, no right or wrong standards as we do today. Such a party should have been eliminated long ago. However, subject to its inherent class attributes, even with a certain degree of ideological understanding, it is ultimately impossible to put into action. In contrast, the Communist Party of China, with Marxism as its ideological weapon, has always been able to keep pace with the trend of the times with a thorough revolutionary spirit and keep pace with the times.

As early as the period of the New Democratic Revolution, our Party formulated a series of rules and regulations to promote self-revolution in the Partys programme, constitution and internal documents. For example, in August 1926, the Resolute Clearance of Corruptors circular issued by the enlarged meeting of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China demanded that local Party organizations resolutely clean up corrupt elements and stop corruption within the Party. This is the first important document in the history of our Party to punish corrupt elements. In May 1927, the Partys five major elections produced the first Party discipline inspection body, the Central Supervision Committee, as a special organ to maintain and implement Party discipline, purifying and purifying the ranks of Party members and cadres. From May 1941 to April 1945, through the Yanan Rectification Movement, the errors of subjectivism, sectarianism and dogmatism were corrected, the ideological line of seeking truth from facts was established, the revolutionization of ideological theory was realized, the new development of Sinicization of Marxism was promoted, and a solid foundation was laid for the Party leadership to win the victory of the new democratic revolution.

After the founding of New China in 1949, our Party has gained a ruling position throughout the country and continued to carry forward the spirit of self-revolution in the process of leading national construction. Comrade Mao Zedong pointed out at the Second Plenary Session of the Seventh Central Committee that to seize power and win the whole country is only the first step of the Long March. The whole Party should keep in mind and carry out Comrade Mao Zedongs Two Musts, continue to carry forward the Partys revolutionary enthusiasm and desperate spirit in the past revolutionary period, and make the revolutionary work to the end.

During the period of socialist construction and reform, our Party endeavoured to purify the Partys ideology, politics and organizational ranks and correct the mistakes of the Cultural Revolution with the spirit of self-revolutionary courage. Our Party constantly improved and innovated the ways and means of self-revolution, and promoted the Partys self-revolution by learning and educating activities and by governing the Party. In order to face up to the problems consciously and courageously, strengthen the Partys leadership and Party building, and unswervingly promote strict governance of the Party.

Revolutionary forging in the new era

Since the Eighteenth National Congress of the CPC, the Party Central Committee, with Comrade Xi Jinping as its core, has adhered to and carried forward the fine tradition of self-revolution, corrected the course of the Party and the national cause in the practice of strict governance of the Party in an all-round way, and made the Party stronger in the revolutionary forging. Over a period of time, the Partys leadership has been weakening, the Partys construction has been lacking, the Partys strict management is weak, the Partys management is loose and soft, and other prominent problems, especially the strong four winds and corruption problems reflected by the broad masses of the people. Who can solve these outstanding problems in Party building and how can we solve these outstanding problems in Party building? General Secretary Xi Jinping gave the answer that iron must be made hard by itself. By carrying forward the fine tradition of self-revolution, resolving the prominent problems in Party building with the spirit of self-revolution with a knife edge inward, adhering to the principle of righteousness, combating corruption, eliminating discipline and supervising and disciplining accountability, we have solved many long-standing and unsolved problems, eliminated the serious hidden dangers existing within the Party and the country, and made our big party and the old party. In the new era, it radiates new vitality and vitality.

Since the Eighteenth National Congress of the Party, the Central Committee of the Party has focused on rectifying the Four Winds which are strongly reflected by the people, focusing on the formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance, and severely shaking off the unhealthy tendencies affecting Party-masses relations and work. Starting from the rules of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee and implementing the eight provisions of the Central Committee from all levels of the Party, General Secretary Xi Jinping set an example and led the whole Party to win the hearts and minds of the Party. Style building is always on the way. Subsequently, within the scope of the whole Party, we carried out the Partys mass line education practice activities, three stringent and three solid thematic education, two learning and one doing learning education, and never forget the first heart, remember the mission thematic education. By carrying out solid and effective learning and education activities, we can promote peoples morality with good Party style and political style, create a good political ecology with clean and healthy atmosphere, constantly improve the ideological quality and political consciousness of the Chinese Communists in the new era, and consciously maintain their advanced and pure nature.

Under the long-term ruling conditions, the ruling party controls huge power resources. How to build an effective power restriction and supervision system is a major issue facing the Communists of China. In the system of supervision of the Party and the state, inner-party supervision is the first one. If inner-party supervision fails, other supervision will inevitably fail. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that self-supervision is a worldwide problem and Goldbachs conjecture of national governance. Since the Eighteenth National Congress, on the one hand, it has played a sword role in inspection and supervision, on the other hand, it has realized that the Party and state organs at the central level should be fully stationed in the discipline inspection group (which will be changed into the discipline inspection and supervision group in 2018), thus eliminating the gaps and blind spots in supervision. After the Sixth Plenary Session of the Eighteenth Central Committee, the leadership of the Party Central Committee deepened the reform of the national supervision system, strengthened the unified leadership of the Party in anti-corruption work, integrated and decentralized anti-corruption forces, and set up supervision committees at all levels to achieve full coverage of the supervision of all public officials exercising public power. By combining the Partys self-supervision with the peoples supervision, we can explore effective ways of self-purification, self-improvement, self-innovation and self-improvement, and promote the modernization of the governance system and capacity. By giving full play to the advantages of self-revolution, the Party is stronger in revolutionary forging and more firmly promotes the great social revolution with the great self-revolution of the Party.

Continuous progress of the two great revolutions

In todays China, no political force has the qualifications and ability to replace the Communist Party of China. Apart from the Communist Party of China, no political force can shoulder the great mission of seeking happiness for the Chinese people and revitalizing the Chinese nation. Facing the unprecedented great changes in the past century, the Communist Party of China must insist on promoting the two great revolutions with a clear banner. As General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out, the Communist Party of China can lead the people to a great social revolution and a great self-revolution.

Great social revolution and great self-revolution are two important concepts put forward in the context of our Partys construction of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. They are also two closely related categories in the theory of Marxist party building. Since the founding of the Party, the Communist Party of China has shouldered the mission of leading the people to carry out a great social revolution, that is, to break the old world and create a new society, with the ultimate goal of realizing communism. The Communist Party of China has led three great social revolutions, namely, the New Democratic Revolution, the Socialist Revolution and the Socialist Construction, the Reform and Opening-up and the Modernization Construction. At present, it is leading the great practice of social revolution in the new era. General Secretary Xi Jinping profoundly pointed out that socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era is the result of the great social revolution led by our Party and the people, and it is also the continuation of the great social revolution led by our Party and the people. It must be carried on consistently.
