"Seeking Truth" magazine published General Secretary Xi Jinping's important article "Several Issues Concerning Upholding and Developing Socialism with Chinese Characteristics"
Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, March 31. The seventh issue of "Seeking Truth" published on April 1 will publish an important article by Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, President of the State, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, "Several Issues on Upholding and Developing Socialism with Chinese Characteristics".
The article emphasizes that the road issue is the first issue related to the success or failure of the party's cause, and the road is the life of the party. Socialism with Chinese characteristics is the dialectical unity of the theoretical logic of scientific socialism and the historical logic of Chinese social development. It is a scientific socialism rooted in the land of China, reflecting the wishes of the Chinese people, and adapting to the requirements of the development and progress of China and the times. It is the only way to build a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way, accelerate socialist modernization and realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
The article points out that socialism with Chinese characteristics is socialism rather than any other doctrine, and the basic principles of scientific socialism cannot be lost, and it is not socialism if it is lost. The key to what kind of doctrine a country implements depends on whether this doctrine can solve the historical issues facing the country. Both history and reality tell us that only socialism can save China and only socialism with Chinese characteristics can develop China. This is the conclusion of history and the choice of the people.
The article points out that our party leads the people in socialist construction. There are two historical periods before and after reform and opening up. These are two periods that are interrelated and have major differences, but in essence, they are both our party leading the people to carry out socialism. Practical exploration of construction. Socialism with Chinese characteristics was created in the new historical period of reform and opening up, but it was also created on the basis that New China has established the basic socialist system and carried out construction for more than 20 years. Although there are great differences in the ideological guidance, principles and policies, and practical work of socialist construction between the two historical periods, the two are by no means separated from each other, let alone fundamentally opposed. The historical period after reform and opening up cannot be used to negate the historical period before reform and opening up, nor can the historical period before reform and opening up be used to negate the historical period after reform and opening up.
The article points out that Marxism must continue to develop with the development of the times, practice, and science. It cannot remain unchanged. Socialism has always advanced in development. To adhere to Marxism and socialism, we must have a view of development. First of all, comrades of the whole party and leading cadres at all levels must adhere to the Marxist viewpoint of development, have a clear understanding of the changes and changes in the world, national conditions, and party conditions, constantly deepen reform and opening up, and constantly promote theoretical innovation, practical innovation, and institutional innovation.
The article emphasizes that our party has always adhered to the lofty ideals of communism, and party members, especially party members and leading cadres, must be firm believers and loyal practitioners of the lofty ideals of communism and the common ideals of socialism with Chinese characteristics. There is an objective standard to measure whether a Communist Party member or a leading cadre has the lofty ideal of communism. It depends on whether he can adhere to the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly, whether he can bear hardships first and enjoy later, whether he can work hard, be honest in performing his duties, and whether he can work hard, fight hard, and devote all his energy and even life to his ideals. All confused and hesitant views, all thoughts of timely pleasure, all acts of coveting personal gain, and all styles of inaction are incompatible with this.
