Ideological Party building and theoretical Party strengthening are important magic weapons for our Party to maintain the advanced and purity of the Marxist Party and constantly enhance its fighting capacity and creativity. To arm the whole Party with the Party's innovative theory is the fundamental way to promote ideological Party building and strengthen the Party theoretically. The Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China established Xi Jinping's guiding position of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, and put forward new tasks and new requirements for theoretical armed work. The theme education of "never forget the beginning and remember the mission" which is being carried out throughout the Party is an innovative practice of theoretical armed forces in the new era. Chairman Xi stressed that to carry out this theme education, we should adhere to the ideological building of the Party and strengthen the Party in theory. Fully recognizing the epochal, theoretical, practical and worldwide significance of Xi Jinping's socialist thought with Chinese characteristics in the new era, giving full play to the guiding role of contemporary Chinese Marxism and 21st century Marxism, and striving to improve the level, quality and effect of theoretical armed forces in the new era, is to deepen theoretical armed forces. The fundamental point of view.
Viewing the New Situation of Theoretical Armed Forces from the Perspective of the Times
The Party's theoretical innovation and armed forces are carried out under certain historical conditions and in a certain era background. With different environments and situations, the tasks and requirements of theoretical armed forces are different. We must grasp new characteristics and explore new laws.
From the nineteenth to the twentieth congresses, it is the historical convergence period of the goal of "two hundred years". This requires that both the Party and the state work sprint and start at the same time. We should not only achieve this goal in a timely manner in the spirit of one-up effort and decisive victory, but also ensure the realization of this goal in a pragmatic and serious style of work. We should also plan scientifically and carefully, start a good situation and make a good start so as to establish a good beginning for the comprehensive construction of a socialist modern country. Such a period of historical convergence is also a period of historical transition, from building a well-off society in an all-round way to building a socialist modern country in an all-round way. In the new era, theoretical armed forces should focus on providing theoretical support for advancing the historical convergence period of the goal of "two hundred years" struggle, prompting Party members and cadres to re-learn and continuously improve, adapt to this change and be competent for new tasks.
Chairman Xi pointed out: "Leading cadres should have two overall situations in mind. One is the strategic overall situation of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the other is the unprecedented great change in the world in a century. This is the basic starting point of our planning work." On the one hand, the Communist Party of China, which is at the intersection of time and space of the "two general situations", should make good use of the important opportunities created by the great changes in the world in order to promote the overall strategic situation of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation; on the other hand, it should make use of the situation to create momentum and form a change in the situation so as to make it advantageous. The direction of national rejuvenation and world peaceful development has evolved. The theoretical arm of the new era is to deepen the understanding of how Xi Jinping's socialist thought with Chinese characteristics in the new era plans and advances the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in all fields and stages as a strategic overall situation, and how to take the unprecedented changes in the world as a strategic opportunity and high risk period for China to become strong in the new era. It is expected to be treated and planned.
Socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era is the result and continuation of the great social revolution, as well as the continuation and deepening of the Party's self-revolution. Promoting the great social revolution in the new era, the vigorous development of socialism with Chinese characteristics, the overall upgrading of various construction, and strengthening the long-term power of the Party. To promote the Party's self-revolution in the new era, the Party firmly takes the lead in the revolutionary forging and strengthens the leadership of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. The great social revolution of the new era and the self-revolution of the Party support and promote each other, and compose a new chapter of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. The theoretical armed forces of the new era are to enhance the Party's consciousness and firmness in promoting the "two major revolutions" in the light of the urgent requirements and major achievements of the "two major revolutions" in the new era.
Grasp the New Mission of Theory Armed from the Political Height
Theoretical armed work serves politics and the overall situation. In the new era, theoretical armed forces have clear mission and clear political orientation. They must focus on new mission and serve new mission.
It is an urgent need for the whole Party to carry out the theme education of "never forgetting the first intention and keeping the mission in mind" in order to arm the whole Party with the socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era of Xi Jinping. "Xi Jinping's Outline for Learning Socialist Thoughts with Chinese Characteristics in the New Era" points out: "In contemporary China, adhering to and developing Xi Jinping's socialist thoughts with Chinese characteristics in the new era means truly adhering to and developing Marxism, and truly adhering to and developing scientific socialism." The fundamental task of theoretical armed forces in the new era is to arm the whole Party with Xi Jinping's socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era.
The original intention and mission of the Communists of China is to seek happiness for the Chinese people and revitalize the Chinese nation. When the Party was founded, more than 50 Party members who founded the Communist Party of China established such an initiative and mission. When the Party was founded in 1998, more than 90 million CPC members adhered to this initiative and mission more difficult. Promoting the realization of the goal and task of thematic education depends on a variety of channels and mechanisms, among which theoretical learning and theoretical education are the foundation and long-term management. In the history of the Party, our Party attaches great importance to Ideological Party building and theoretical party strengthening, and often carries out ideological education and theoretical armed work of the Party, so as to educate generations of Communists to maintain their political nature.
At present, theoretical armed forces are meant to firmly establish ideals and beliefs throughout the Party, constantly strengthen the exercise of Party spirit, and maintain centralization and unity. In the new era, we adhere to the principle of Party spirit and concentrate on strengthening the "four consciousness"; in the new era, we strengthen our ideals and beliefs, and concentrate on strengthening the "four self-confidence"; in the new era, we maintain the centralization and unity, and concentrate on achieving the "two safeguards". In the new era of intra-Party political life, we should regard "four consciousness" as the ideological consciousness leading intra-party political life, and use "four consciousness" to overcome the problem of intra-Party political ecological pollution. In the new era, Party members'faith and belief should be determined by "four self-confidence" as the basic requirement to test their ideal and belief, and "four self-confidence" should be used to dispel the problem of shaking their ideal and belief. In the new era, the centralization and unification of the whole Party should take the "two safeguards" as the top priority to adhere to the centralized and unified leadership of the Party Central Committee, and use the "two safeguards" to ensure the correct direction of the Party's cause. The theoretical armed forces of the new era should promote our Party to become a strong Marxist political party from the political, overall and party spirit levels.
Party building in the new era should be carried out and laid out in accordance with the general requirements of Party building in the new era. The theoretical armed forces of the new era should be closely combined with the implementation of the general requirements and promote the implementation of the general requirements. Theoretical armed forces should help the Party members to deeply understand that upholding and strengthening the Party's overall leadership is the inevitable requirement of the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics; a profound understanding of strengthening the Party's long-term ruling capacity-building, advanced and purity-building is the basic condition for jumping out of the historical cycle rate and maintaining long-term ruling; Strengthening the Party's political construction is an urgent requirement to strengthen its political stand, correct its political direction, improve its political ability and grasp the overall political situation; a profound understanding of all aspects of Party construction is that it is always in the forefront of the times, wholeheartedly supported by the people, courageous to self-revolutionize, able to withstand the test of all kinds of storms and waves, vigorous and vigorous. The overall requirements of the ruling Marxist Party.
Implementing the New Requirements for Theoretical Armement from a Strategic Perspective
As far as the theoretical armed forces of the new era are concerned, the change of the situation and the expansion of the mission inevitably require the deepening of the content, especially on the major issues related to the future and destiny of the Party and the country.
Chairman Xi emphasized in the 15th collective study of the Central Political Bureau that "as the Party of the Centennial Congress, how to maintain its advanced and pure nature, maintain its youth and vitality, how to win the support and support of the people forever, and how to realize its long-term governance are fundamental questions that we must answer and solve well." As a Marxist party, the world's largest party and a long-term ruling party, our party is about to enter the second century. At such a critical moment in history, we must think deeply and solve effectively the fundamental problems of Party building at the Centennial Congress. If these questions are answered and solved well, our Party will be able to write down a pioneering and brilliant chapter in the history of the development of Marxist political parties, to serve as the vanguard and mainstay of national rejuvenation for a century or even a long time in the history of the Chinese nation, and to lead the whole nation in the history of the People's Republic of China. From building a well-off society to building a strong socialist modernization country in an all-round way. In the new era, theoretical armed forces should be guided by political construction, that is, they should tightly grasp the major issues that are closely related to the fate of the Party's development and construction, and use the method of Marxist standpoint to analyze and study them, so as to get the correct answers.
Theoretical armed forces have their distinct pertinence. In the new era, theoretical armed forces must answer and solve the major practical problems of Party building in the combination of theory and practice. Under the new situation, the "Four Tests" facing the Party are long-term and complex, and the "Four Dangers" facing the Party are acute and severe. These reality tests and dangers become the factors that weaken the Party's advanced nature and damage the Party's purity, and the corrosive agent that violates the original intention and mission and shakes the Party's foundation. In the new era, if these tests and dangers are not strictly guarded against and timely remedied, over time, the accumulation will be difficult to return. In the thematic education of "never forget the first intention and remember the mission", we should not only clarify the reality test and the causes of the danger of the Party's construction in the new era, but also strengthen the political consciousness to withstand the "four tests" and overcome the "four dangers", and implement the practical measures of prevention and control.
Ideological education and theoretical armed forces do not just stay at the level of ideological understanding, but have a clear practical orientation. In order to further study and implement Xi Jinping's socialist thought with Chinese characteristics in the new era, we must make great efforts to understand, understand and practice it, enhance political, ideological and emotional identification, and make sure that we can learn, use and integrate knowledge, practice and practice. The purpose of learning is to apply. The results of thinking should be transformed and applied. Learning, thinking and application constitute a complete chain of ideological education. Knowledge should be helpful to promote belief, and belief should be proved by practice. Truth, truthfulness and truth constitute the overall requirements of theoretical armed. To evaluate the effectiveness of this thematic education, it is essential to see whether it achieves such coherence and unity.
Exploring the New Experience of Theory Armed from the Practice Height
The theory armed in the new era is an exploratory practice that deepens the theory armed and can create new experience. The theme education of "not forgetting the first intention and keeping the mission in mind" is an innovative practice of theoretical armed forces in the new era.
Theoretical armed forces are an important link in Ideological Party building and theoretical Party strengthening, which has its inherent laws. The theoretical armed forces in the new era have their own new characteristics and laws. We should get some regular knowledge in the process of thematic education. For example, how to fully understand the great significance of Xi Jinping's socialist thought with Chinese characteristics in the new era, deepen the understanding of the armed value of the theory in the new era from the aspects of realizing the new mission, leading the new journey and opening up the great cause of innovation, and how to systematically elucidate the spiritual essence of Xi Jinping's socialist thought with Chinese characteristics in the new era, The theoretical character and scientific system should deepen the understanding of the rich and profound connotations of contemporary Chinese Marxism and Marxism in the twenty-first century; how to better realize the transformation from idea to effect, from statement to action, from raising questions to solving problems, and deepen the ideological truth power of socialism with Chinese characteristics in Xi Jinping's New Era Practical proof of quantity; etc.
New ideas contain new methods, and these methods of universal significance can also be applied to theoretical armed work. Marxist ideological methods and working methods are the guiding methods of theoretical arming in the new era, and the process of scientific theory arming the whole Party is also the process of implementing scientific methods. New media highlights new methods. Modern media technology has profoundly changed the ways and means of information dissemination, knowledge imparting, theory popularization and ideological edification. It is the general trend to use more, better and deeper network media to enhance the effect of theoretical armed. Since the launch of the "Learning Power", Party members and cadres have become reluctant learning channels and learning assistants, indicating that "content is king" and "network is wing", the effectiveness of theoretical armed will multiply.
Deepening the armed theory and improving the style of study are the key. The establishment of a fine style of study is in itself the goal and symbol of deepening theoretical armed forces. In the work of theoretical armed forces, there are formalistic problems in some places and departments, such as lively plans, heavy marks and eye-catching. To improve the style of study in theoretical armed work in the new era is to establish a scientific evaluation system for theoretical armed work, which focuses on understanding, mastering, integrating and practicing effects, changing simplified, shallow and purely quantitative evaluation criteria, and making theoretical armed work in the new era an important way of Ideological Party building and theoretical strengthening of the party. It is becoming an important mechanism to promote the adherence to and development of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.
