At the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the overall situation of the cause of the party and the state in the new era was taken into consideration, and the adherence to the guiding position of Marxism in the field of ideology was clearly put forward and comprehensively deployed as a fundamental system. This is the concrete embodiment of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics in the field of ideology and culture, which shows that our partys understanding of adhering to the law of ideological work guided by Marxism has reached a new height. This major institutional arrangement is of fundamental, overall and long-term significance for further ideological work in the new era, building a socialist ideology with strong cohesion and leading force, consolidating the common ideological basis for the unity and struggle of the whole Party and the whole people, prospering and developing advanced socialist culture, and safeguarding the ideological security of the country.
Why to take the guiding position of Marxism in the field of ideology as a fundamental system
One is the urgent need to effectively solve the new situation and problems faced by the guiding position of Marxism. Since the eighteen Party Congress has been attached great importance to and promoted by the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as its core, the guiding position of Marx in our ideological field has been more distinct, consolidated and deepened, and historical and fundamental changes have taken place in the ideological and cultural field. The study and research of Marxism have achieved actual results, the methodology of Marxist world outlook has been effectively implemented, the modernization and popularization of Marxism in China have made remarkable achievements, and the partys innovation theory has been deeply rooted in the peoples minds. At the same time, we should also be aware that there are still some problems that need to be fundamentally solved in adhering to the guiding position of Marxism. For example, in some fields, the problem of Marxism being marginalized, spatialized and labeled has not been fundamentally solved; the tendency of dogmatism and pragmatism towards Marxism has not been completely overcome; the ability and level of using Marxist standpoint to solve Chinas practical problems need to be improved; building a discipline system and academic system guided by Marxism Great efforts need to be made in terms of system and discourse system; it is necessary to arm the whole party with the partys innovation theory and establish effective mechanism to educate the people. These problems need to be solved with great efforts in the combination of theory and practice.
The second is the urgent need to arm up with the latest achievements of Sinicization of Marxism. Every time theoretical innovation goes further, theoretical arms must go further. At present, our party already has about 90000000 party members and about 4600000 grass-roots party organizations. In a long ruling country of nearly 1 billion 400 million population, the situation faced by the party is more complex and the tasks shouldered are more arduous. Only by adhering to Xi Jinpings new generation of socialism with Chinese characteristics, this generation of Chinese Marx doctrine and the twenty-first Century Marx doctrine can we make the whole Party and the whole society thinking. We will consolidate unity and unity, and ensure the unity of will, action and step-by-step progress of the whole party. At present, the process of Sinicization of Marxism is in a new leap in history, the pace of theoretical and practical innovation of the party is greatly accelerated, and new ideas in the new era are constantly enriched and developed. To learn, understand, and practice new ideas, we need to make great efforts. With the new development of the times and practice, we need to achieve the organic unity of long-term adherence and continuous development.
Three is the urgent need to promote the construction of national system and governance capacity. General secretary Xi Jinping pointed out: our countrys national governance system is the result of long-term development, gradual improvement and endogenous evolution on the basis of Chinas historical heritage, cultural traditions and economic and social development. In the final analysis, the reason why Chinas national governance system and national governance system show great vitality and superiority lies in that it is a system and governance system guided by Marxism, rooted in China, with a deep foundation of Chinese culture and supported by the people. Since the founding of the peoples Republic of China 70 years ago, one of the important experiences and unique advantages of our partys governance is that we are good at using the scientific thinking that keeps pace with the times to guide the direction and gather strength, and take the ideological, theoretical and cultural construction as a red line running through the system construction and national governance. To adhere to and improve the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and to promote the modernization of national governance system and governance capacity, we must always adhere to the guiding position of Marxism, use the scientific guidance of the partys innovation theory, enhance faith, build a solid ideological foundation and consolidate the theoretical basis.
Fourth, the urgent need to effectively deal with the challenge of ideological risk. In the new era, profound changes have taken place in the internal and external environment of Chinas ideological field. General secretary Xi Jinping and the Party Central Committee put ideological security in the important position of national security, and took the risk challenge in the ideological field as a major issue that directly related to the future and destiny of the party and the country. At home, with the profound adjustment of interest pattern and interest relationship in the process of deepening reform, peoples ideas, values and value orientation are becoming more diversified and changeable. Chinas mainstream ideology is facing new challenges. Marxism, non Marxism and even anti Marxism ideas exist at the same time. Advanced and backward ideas are intertwined, positive and negative We are facing new environment and new problems. From the perspective of external environment, based on the different historical and cultural basis of multiple symbiosis, different civilizations and social systems exchange and hedge with each other, showing new characteristics, even sometimes tend to struggle with each other and become complex and sharp, Chinas ideological security is facing new challenges. Only by adhering to the fundamental system of Marxisms guiding position in the field of ideology can we be neutral and strong in ideological struggle and effectively safeguard the national ideological security.
The main task of the fundamental system of upholding the guiding position of Marxism in the field of ideology
One is to consolidate the guiding position of Marxism and strengthen the ideological leadership. General secretary Xi Jinping has repeatedly stressed that ideological work is an extremely important task for the party. It is a work for the nation to be dedicated to the spirit of the nation. It is related to the flag, the road, the political security of the country, the future and destiny of the party, the national long-term stability, the national cohesion and the centripetal force, and the ideological leadership and the right to speak. If we deviate from or give up Marxism, our party will lose its soul, lose its direction, or even perish. In the new era, with the historic achievements of the cause of the party and the state, the status of the mainstream ideology with Marxism as the core has been steadily improved, firmly occupying the dominant position and ensuring the successful progress of the cause of the party and the state in the direction of socialism. However, we should also be aware that all kinds of erroneous views and thoughts challenge the guiding position of Marxism to varying degrees, and in some important nodes and important periods, they also challenge in a new form. For example, new liberalism, western constitutional democracy, universal value, populism and other erroneous thoughts have been highlighted from time to time, which have impacted the construction of socialist economy, politics, culture, society, ecological civilization and other aspects with Chinese characteristics, and even targeted at the leadership of the Communist Party of China and the socialist system with Chinese characteristics. Some people exaggerate the erroneous views of the end of ideology, the dilution of ideology, the de ideological and the non ideological, and also weaken or weaken the guiding position of Marxism in the field of ideology to varying degrees. It is a long-term and arduous task to guarantee the consolidation of the guiding position of Marxism and the command of Sinicized Marxism from the fundamental system.
Second, we should constantly arm our minds with the partys innovative theoretical achievements and concentrate on them. In order to uphold the fundamental system of Marxisms guiding position in the field of ideology, we must constantly promote theoretical innovation and armed theory on the basis of practice. As pointed out by general secretary Xi Jinping, developing the Marx doctrine in the twenty-first Century and the contemporary Chinese Marx doctrine are the historical responsibilities of the contemporary Chinese Communists. The practice of revolution, construction and reform led by the party fully proves that only by persisting in the combination of the basic principles of Marxism with Chinas specific practice and characteristics of the times, constantly pushing forward the popularization of Marxism in China, and constantly developing Marxism in contemporary China and Marxism in the 21st century, can we be firm in our hearts and minds, set our sights firmly, and firmly adhere to the realization of the Communist Party of China With the direction of the goal, consolidate the common ideological foundation, tighten the common spiritual ties, and promote the ideological and spiritual unity of all the people, so as to better gather the great power to overcome difficulties and forge ahead. In contemporary China, upholding and developing Xi Jinpings socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics is to truly uphold and develop Marx doctrine. Adhering to the guiding position of Marx doctrine, we must uphold the guiding position of Xi Jinpings socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era. The most important thing is to vigorously carry forward the Marx style of study with theory and practice, closely combine the new practice and new requirements of the new era, strengthen the guidance of problems and practice, and consciously become the firm believers and faithful practitioners of Xi Jinpings socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era.
The third is to use the socialist core values to guide the diversified and changeable social thoughts. With the continuous development of social change in breadth and depth, the diversity, independence, selectivity and difference of peoples ideas and values are increasing, and it is more difficult to integrate multiple values under the guidance of socialist core values. Such as utilitarianism, materialism, money worship and extreme individualism, which impact the collectivism, solidarity and mutual aid, and dedication as the basis of socialist values; the influence of Western consumerism, entertainment supremacy, deconstruction and other ideological trends results in de idealization, de value, de centralization, de mainstreaming and de historicalization, It also increases the multiple complexity of peoples ideology and values, and even some propose to eliminate the mainstream ideology, which has many adverse effects on the cultivation and promotion of socialist core values. It is still an arduous task for ideological work in the new era to grasp the correct guidance of Ideological and public opinion, sing the main melody, strengthen the positive energy, strengthen and enlarge the mainstream ideology, enhance the ability to command and integrate diverse social thoughts, and constantly enhance the sense of the times, attraction, leading force and cohesion.
Fourth, we should effectively deal with the problems of curbing and suppressing the public opinion attacks, striving for the initiative and the right to speak. With the development and expansion of China, China is increasingly approaching the center of the world stage. Chinas international influence, appeal, shaping and leading power are further improved. Chinas development path, development concept and experience, Chinas wisdom, Chinas program and Chinas contribution are highly praised and widely recognized by the international community. However, some countries and forces do not want to see Chinas rise and strength. They regard Chinas development and expansion not as an opportunity but as a challenge. They do their best to distort and stigmatize Chinas development path and social system, and constantly provoke various incidents to create confrontation. For example, the socialism with Chinese characteristics is called capital socialism, state capitalism and new bureaucratic capitalism, which has turned the rise and development of China into new imperialism and distorted the successful practice of one belt and one road in China to Neo colonialism. The purpose is to subvert the leadership of the Communist Party of China and the socialist system of China, blocking or interrupting China. The historical process of the great rejuvenation of the nation. In this regard, we must be clear-minded, keep our strategic focus, never lose our position and stand in disorder, and at the same time vigorously and effectively carry out the public opinion struggle to fully grasp the initiative and the right to speak.
Put into practice the basic system of adhering to the guiding position of Marxism in the field of ideology
Adhering to the fundamental system of Marxisms guiding position in the field of ideology is a major innovation of our partys ideological and cultural system, which is related to the long-term development of the cause of the party and the country, as well as the direction and development path of our culture. We should deeply grasp the significance and practical requirements of adhering to this fundamental system, enhance political and ideological consciousness, strengthen system consciousness and carry out the system well, practically embody this fundamental system in adhering to the correct political direction, public opinion orientation and value orientation, and in implementing the work concept, ideas and measures, so as to adhere to and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics for the new era The realization of the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation provides a strong ideological guarantee and a strong spiritual impetus.
First, learn to understand and practice the thought of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the Ping Xin era. In the new era, the most important thing to uphold and consolidate the guiding position of Marx is to uphold and consolidate the guiding position of Xi Jinpings socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era. In accordance with the requirements of learning to understand and to be practical, closely combined with the great practice of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, we should accurately grasp the theoretical logic, historical logic and practical logic of this thought, deeply grasp the spiritual essence, rich connotation, core essentials and practical requirements, systematically and completely grasp the scientific system, great contribution and historical status, and deeply understand the Marxist master throughout it The political identity, ideological identity and emotional identity of this thought are constantly enhanced by the methods of the standpoint of righteousness and the distinct characters of the people first, historical consciousness, seeking truth from facts, problem orientation, strategic thinking, struggle spirit, etc. To achieve the unity of learning, thinking, using, knowing, believing and doing, and to transform the great power of truth contained in this thought into the great power of practice.
Second, we should establish and improve the working system of arming the whole party with innovative theories and educating the people. To comprehensively implement Xi Jinpings socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics, we must continue to push forward and deepen it, and establish and improve the system and working system of theoretical armed forces. We will improve the scientific and standardized level of our work, and improve institutional mechanisms for learning and education, research and interpretation, and publicity and popularization. We should pay special attention to the study of leading cadres and improve the study system at all levels of the Party committee (Party group) theoretical study center group. Enrich and innovate the form of learning content, build and make good use of the online learning platform, and give full play to the aggregation and leading role of the learning platform of learning power. We should vigorously promote the construction of Xi Jinpings new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and launch a masterpiece of deep theoretical explanation. We will continue to promote the popularization of scientific theories and establish a sound working mechanism for accurate dissemination and effective coverage.
Third, we should establish and improve the system of keeping in mind our original intention and mission. The original intention and mission of seeking happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation embodies the partys nature, purpose, ideals and beliefs, and goals. The establishment and improvement of the system of keeping the original mind in mind and the mission in mind is the fundamental guarantee to consolidate the partys leading position and ruling foundation, and the inevitable requirement to adhere to the guiding position of Marxism in the ideological field. Based on the party constitution, a long-term mechanism should be established to keep the initiative and mission in mind. We will continue to strengthen the theoretical armed forces, and improve the systems of self-study, education and training of Party members and cadres, learning of grass-roots party organizations, and theoretical propaganda. We will consolidate and expand the educational achievements on the theme of never forget your original mind and keep your mission in mind, improve the long-term mechanism for checking and correcting problems, improve the mechanism for promoting the implementation of major decisions made by the Party Central Committee, improve the system for mobilizing the initiative and creativity of the whole party, and earnestly implement the systems of three meetings and one lesson and inner-party organizational life.
Fourth, plan to implement the research and construction project of Marxism theory in the new era. The research and construction project of Marxist theory is a basic and strategic project to uphold and consolidate the guiding position of Marxism in the field of ideology. The successful implementation of this project has played an important role in consolidating the guiding position of Marxism in the field of ideology, accumulated rich experience and formed effective methods. We should accurately grasp the new requirements of the new era, promote the institutionalization of projects, plan and implement the theoretical research and construction projects of Marxism in the new era, and practically implement the adherence to Marxism as the guide to all aspects of Ideological and theoretical construction, philosophical and social science research, education and teaching. We will strengthen the compilation and study of classic works, deepen the study of the partys basic theory, line and strategy, and deepen the study of the road, theory, system and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics. We should strengthen problem awareness and problem orientation, and increase research and summary of major theoretical issues, major practical issues and major practical experience. We should speed up the construction of philosophy and social sciences with Chinese characteristics and strive to build a discipline system, academic system and discourse system guided by Marxism. We should promote the latest achievements of Sinicization of Marxism into teaching materials, into the classroom, into the minds of teachers and students, and promote the full integration of scientific theory into education and teaching.
Fifth, establish and improve the responsibility system for the implementation of ideological work. To adhere to the fundamental system of guiding position of Marxism in the ideological field, we must adhere to the overall leadership of the party, improve the political position, enhance the Four Consciousness, strengthen the four self-confidence and achieve the two maintenance. The party is in charge of propaganda, ideology and media. Party organizations at all levels should strengthen the responsibility, implement the main responsibility, compact the political responsibility and leadership responsibility of ideological work, firmly hold the leadership of ideological work in the hands of the party, and effectively implement the responsibility system of ideological work on the Internet. We will improve the system of position construction and management, implement the principles of being in charge of hosting and territorial management, and ensure that we are responsible for our local affairs, that we are responsible for our local affairs, that we are responsible for our local affairs, that we are responsible for our local affairs, and that we are committed to our local affairs. We will never allow any place outside the law or any place where public opinion flies. Attention should be paid to distinguishing political principles, ideological understanding and academic views, and specific analysis of specific problems should be adhered to, so as to solve whatever problems are. We should uphold the spirit of struggle, dare to fight and be good at fighting. We should be upright in our criticism of all kinds of erroneous statements and take a clear stand against and resist all kinds of erroneous views. We will build an ideological team that is politically competent, skilled, realistic and innovative, and able to win battles. Carefully study and judge the trend and situation in the field of ideology, and effectively solve major problems, hot and difficult issues.
