Time is the most faithful recorder.

From Shikumen to Tiananmen, from Xingye Road to Fuxing Road, a red boat carrying the great trust of the people and the hope of the nation, crossed the rapids and dangerous beaches, passed through the stormy waves, and became a majestic giant ship leading China's stable and far-reaching journey. The Communist Party of China united and led the Chinese people to write the most magnificent epic in the history of the Chinese nation for thousands of years.

On the occasion of the 102nd anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping, on behalf of the Party Central Committee, extended festive greetings to the vast number of Communist Party members across the country and put forward new requirements for "deeply promoting the new great project of party building in the new era".

History fully proves that without the Communist Party of China, there would be no New China and no great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The key to comprehensively building a modern socialist country and comprehensively promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation lies in the party and the people. A big party and a big country are not only our advantages in doing great things and building great causes, but also make us face many unique difficulties in administering the party and the country.

"We are such a big party, leading such a big country, shouldering the arduous task of leading the people of all ethnic groups in the country to achieve national strength and national rejuvenation, and the whole party must unify its thinking, will, and actions." In April this year, at the education work conference on the theme of studying and implementing Xi Jinping's thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era, the general secretary clearly proposed that "we should jointly forge the party into a hard steel that is invincible and invincible."

More unity of thought

Unity and unity are the life of the Party and the strength of the Party. Ideological unity is the deepest, most enduring and most reliable guarantee for the unity and unity of the Party.

"The Seventh National Congress of the Party is an important milestone in the history of the Party, marking the maturity of our Party politically, ideologically, and organizationally." On October 2022, 10, less than a week after the conclusion of the 27th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping led the new members of the Politburo Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee to Yan'an to visit the site of the Seventh National Congress of the Communist Party of China. "Ideologically, the Party has established the guiding position of Mao Zedong Thought in the whole Party and written Mao Zedong Thought into the Party Constitution." Then to Yan'an, revisiting one historical document after another, the general secretary lamented that "every time I was baptized spiritually."

△On October 2022, 10, General Secretary Xi Jinping and others visited the "Great Journey - Thirteen Years of History Exhibition of the CPC Central Committee in Yan'an" at the Yan'an Revolution Memorial Hall.

Tightening the "master switch" of ideological party building and persistently arming the whole party, guiding practice, and promoting work with the latest achievements of the Sinicization of Marxism is an important experience of our party in creating history and achieving brilliant achievements.

An inch loose in thought will be a foot loose in action. In the view of General Secretary Xi Jinping, for party members and cadres, ideological slippage is the most serious pathology. He repeatedly stressed that "without ideals and convictions, if ideals and convictions are not firm, we will be mentally 'deficient in calcium' and will suffer from 'cartilage'"; "To refine the 'body that is not bad,' we must arm our minds with scientific theories and constantly cultivate our spiritual home."

At present, the theme education on studying and implementing Xi Jinping's thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era is being carried out in depth throughout the party.

For the purpose of learning, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that "it is all about application, and it lies in turning this idea into a powerful ideological weapon to transform the subjective world and the objective world."

The general secretary attached great importance to the development of this thematic education, and repeatedly stressed that it is necessary to achieve practical results in forging the soul with learning, increasing wisdom with learning, learning a healthy style, and promoting work with learning.

During his inspection tour in Guangdong in April this year, he stressed the need to strengthen ideals and beliefs, forge loyalty to the party, and stand firm on the people's stand on "forging the soul through learning";

In May, when listening to the work reports of the Shaanxi Provincial Party Committee and the Shaanxi Provincial Government, he further explained "increasing wisdom through learning", saying that "we should understand the law, clarify the direction, learn the method, and increase wisdom from the party's scientific theory, and learn the skills of housekeeping, rejuvenating the party, and strengthening the country";

In June, during his research in Inner Mongolia, he emphasized the importance of promoting the whole party to solve outstanding problems in party style with the spirit of self-revolution through centralized education, and put forward specific requirements for "grasping the positive style of learning from the right style", "promoting the style of pragmatism", "carrying forward the style of honesty" and "cultivating the style of frugality".

The Chinese Communists have relied on study to get to this day, and they must also rely on study to move into the future. In the face of the complicated international and domestic situations, arduous and arduous tasks of reform, development and stability, and various uncertain and unpredictable risks and challenges, the vast number of party members and cadres have kept in mind the general requirements of "studying ideology, strengthening party spirit, attaching importance to practice, and building new merits", persisted in integrating study and thinking, and integrating knowledge and belief with action, and worked hard to open up a new situation in the development of their cause.

More political solidarity

To govern our big party and our big country well, it is of utmost importance to ensure the unity and centralization of the party and to safeguard the authority of the party Central Committee. At all times and under all circumstances, we must persist in taking the party's banner as the banner, the party's direction as the direction, and the party's will as the will.

"With caves as classrooms, stone bricks as desks and chairs, lime and muddy walls as blackboards, and school buildings that are not afraid of bombing, I am afraid that there is only one such 'institution of higher learning' in the world." The American journalist Edgar Snow described such a "cave university" in his book "Journey to the West". This university was Kang Da, which was renamed the Chinese Civil Anti-Japanese Military and Political University in January 1937. Mao Zedong also chaired the school's education committee and personally taught some of the courses to the students.

"In 1938, when Comrade Mao Zedong answered 'what should be studied at the Anti-Japanese Military and Political University in Yan'an,' he pointed out, 'First of all, learn a political direction.'" In October last year, when visiting the Yan'an Revolution Memorial Site, General Secretary Xi Jinping clearly put forward the requirement that "all comrades in the party should adhere to the correct political direction."

Political direction is the first issue for the survival and development of the party; To obey the core and maintain the core is to obey the overall situation and safeguard the overall situation, which is the biggest politics. "As a Marxist political party, stressing politics is an outstanding characteristic and advantage." The general secretary said earnestly, "Is the Communist Party still called the Communist Party if it does not talk about politics?" ”

"When the Red Army crossed the meadow, the comrades and men went to bed together, and did not ask if there was any rice to cook today, but first asked whether to go south or north. This shows that in the ranks of the Red Army, even a cook understands that the question of direction is more important than what to eat. General Secretary Xi Jinping has repeatedly emphasized the eternal topic of "the party's political construction".

△On April 2023, 4, the Education Work Conference on Learning and Implementing Xi Jinping's Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era was held in Beijing. General Secretary Xi Jinping attended the meeting and delivered an important speech.

Stressing politics is concrete, and the "two safeguards" should be embodied in the actions of resolutely implementing the decisions and arrangements of the party Central Committee, in the practical results of performing one's duties and doing one's own work well, and in the daily words and deeds of party members and cadres. General Secretary Xi Jinping encouraged leading cadres at all levels, especially senior cadres, to continuously improve their political judgment, political comprehension and political execution, and have a clear understanding of the "great of the country".

The iron must be its own. "If our party must always be the vanguard of the times, the backbone of the nation, and always become the ruling party of Marxism, it must always be strong itself."

There are traces of scratching iron, and stepping stones leave marks.

According to a 2022 National Bureau of Statistics poll, 97.4% of the people expressed satisfaction with the results of comprehensive strict party management, party style and clean government construction and anti-corruption work, an increase of 2012.22 percentage points over 4.

Looking at the whole world, no other political party can take its own construction so seriously as the Communist Party of China, and promote self-revolution with such a scientific attitude and systematic way so consciously, which is a significant advantage of our party and a way to lead the times.

Dare to carry out self-revolution, dare to turn the blade inward, dare to scrape bones to heal wounds, dare to break the wrist of a strong man... Since the 18th CPC National Congress, the party's creativity, cohesiveness, and combat effectiveness have been continuously enhanced through comprehensively administering the party strictly.

More unity in action

The edifice of socialism with Chinese characteristics needs four beams and eight pillars to support, and the party is the overall skeleton running through it. The party, government, military, and civilian studies, east, west, south, north, and middle, the party leads everything. A tight organizational system is where the strength and strength of a Marxist political party lies.

In April 2020, a photo of "fifth-level secretaries in the same frame" brushed the screen - Pingli County, Shaanxi, where the spring rains first stopped. General Secretary Xi Jinping walked up the muddy path and led the secretaries at the provincial, municipal, county and village levels to the tea farmers who were working in the tea plantations. People can see from the picture that the leader of a big country cares about poverty alleviation and cares for the people, and also feels the power of "those who want the same from top to bottom win".

△On April 2020, 4, General Secretary Xi Jinping came to a tea plantation in Jiangjiaping Village, Laoxian Town, Pingli County, Ankang City, Shaanxi Province, to inspect the situation of poverty alleviation.

Poverty alleviation is an unprecedented feat. Working together is the key to winning this battle. From the top-level design to the formation of troops, from the command of the Party Central Committee to the grassroots "last kilometer" ... In a game of chess throughout the country, 22 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities issued "military orders" to the party Central Committee, and 25,5 village-based task forces, more than 300 million first secretaries, and village-based cadres rushed into battle with the vast number of rural cadres.

On the front line of fighting the new crown epidemic, a large number of party members and cadres of organs, enterprises and institutions went to the community, established 24,4 temporary party organizations, and more than 2,5 outstanding elements took the oath to join the party in the line of fire, and the party flag flew high.

General Secretary Xi Jinping said: "The party's central organization, local organizations and grassroots organizations are strong and fully functional, and the advantages and power of the party's organizational system can be fully reflected." Only when the Party's organizations at all levels are sound and competent, and a strict organizational system that runs through the top and bottom and is effectively implemented can the Party's leadership be 'like an arm', like an arm'. ”

"Our modernization is both the hardest and the greatest." On October 2022, 10, when participating in the discussion of the Guangxi delegation to the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping sighed with such feelings.

It is foreseeable that on the way forward, we will inevitably encounter a large number of new issues that have never appeared before, encounter various difficulties and dangers, and withstand many major tests of high winds and waves and even stormy waves.

Wind and rain are not afraid, and the mainstay is in the stream. The Communist Party of China is the most reliable backbone of our great achievements.

As General Secretary Xi Jinping said, as long as the whole party unites into "a piece of hard steel", it can unite the people of all ethnic groups in the country, form a mighty force that is united and invincible, and defeat all powerful enemies and all difficulties and obstacles. The giant ship of the Great Rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation will surely ride the wind and waves and sail away.
