Red China is Still Communist
Editor’s Note: An article in China Daily, entitled, “Adapting Marxism called crucial,” explains how Marxism is still in effect in Communist China and guiding the country’s future. The article appeared on September 30, 2017.
Here are some excerpts:
- Relentless efforts should be made to adapt Marxism to China, to the era and to the public, President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said on Friday. Xi made the remark at the 43rd group study session of the members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.
- Xi said that as a party upholding Marxism, the CPC should make sure its theories keep up with the times. Drifting away from or betraying Marxism will lead to the Party’s losing its soul and direction as it moves forward, Xi added. Marxism is unsurpassed in achieving great heights and having a huge influence, he said.
- Additionally, the Party should continue improving its capabilities in analyzing and tackling issues by using Marxism, and continue strengthening its capabilities in addressing major challenges, risks, resistance and contradictions, he said.
- The Party’s officials, particularly those in senior ranks, should fully study the classics of Marxism, as well as the Party theories of Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, The Thought of Three Represents and the Scientific Outlook on Development, as well as new ideas, thoughts and strategies regarding governance by the CPC Central Committee, Xi said.
