General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out in his important speech at the opening ceremony of the seminar on the study and implementation of the spirit of the Sixth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of One cannot live without correct ideological guidance. The reason why the Communist Party of China is able and why socialism with Chinese characteristics is good is ultimately because of Marxism. The reason why Marxism is successful is that the party continues to promote the modernization of Marxism in China and use it to guide practice.”

To adhere to Marxism, we must develop Marxism, and constantly guide new practice with the developing Marxism. The 100-year history of the party has proved that adhering to integrity and innovation, continuously promoting the modernization of Marxism in China, and developing and applying Marxism to lead practice is a very important historical experience for our party to lead the people to create historical great achievements. In the era, striving to win the new victory of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way is the fundamental principle.

Marxism is the fundamental guiding ideology for us to establish the Party, build the country, and strengthen the Party and the country. As a scientific theory, Marxism creatively reveals the laws of development of human society, and is a powerful ideological weapon for us to understand the world, grasp the laws, pursue the truth, and transform the world. On the basis of the creation of historical materialism and the theory of surplus value, Marx turned socialism from utopian into science, found the “key” of human historical development, and pointed out the direction of future social development. From the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century, various political forces and ideological trends took turns on the stage of Chinese history, but none of them were able to truly solve the problems of China‘s times. Only Chinese Communists who are guided by Marxism, insist on upholding integrity and innovation, neither superstitute other people’s experience nor limit themselves to inherent dogma, and combine the basic principles of Marxism with China‘s concrete reality and Chinese excellent traditional culture. Demonstrating the power of truth, morality and practice of Marxism, China, an ancient eastern country, has created a miracle of development unprecedented in human history, and the Chinese nation has ushered in a great leap from standing up, becoming rich, and becoming strong. Practice has fully proved that Marxism has profoundly changed China.

Marxist theory is not a dogma, but a guide to action that must evolve as practice changes. Practicality is the main feature that distinguishes Marxist theory from other theories. Marxism is formed, enriched and developed in practice, and is an open theoretical system that is constantly self-renewing and self-improving in practice. Engels pointed out that “Marx’s whole world outlook is not a dogma but a method. It provides not ready-made dogma, but a starting point for further research and a method for such research”, and the practical application of the general principles of their theory “at any time Everywhere must be based on the historical conditions at that time.” This practical feature of Marxism fundamentally determines its close connection with the real life of society, with the social practice of the broad masses of the people, and with the specific conditions of the times, and determines its inexhaustible creativity and vitality. It also determines that it has the inherent theoretical quality of continuously carrying out theoretical innovation on the basis of practical innovation, leading practical innovation with the results of theoretical innovation, and constantly advancing with the times in the interaction of theoretical innovation and practical innovation. Over the past 100 years, the reason why our party has been able to continuously overcome difficulties and solve all kinds of difficulties and obstacles on the way forward is because we insist on linking theory with practice, and constantly integrate the basic principles of Marxism with China‘s specific national conditions, contemporary conditions, and Closely integrated with the needs of the people, we will continue to promote the modernization of Marxism in China, absorb all the outstanding achievements of civilization created by mankind with a broad mind, and lead great practice with the scientific theory of the sinicization of Marxism.

In the face of a rapidly changing world and China, if we stick to conventions, rigid ideas, lack the courage to innovate in theory, and cannot scientifically answer the questions of China, the world, the people, and the times, not only will the cause of the party and the country be unable to move forward, Marx Doctrine also loses its vitality and persuasion. The Chinese Communists, with Comrade Xi Jinping as the main representative, insist on combining the basic principles of Marxism with the concrete reality of China and with the excellent traditional Chinese culture, adhere to Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the important thought of “Three Represents”, and the Scientific Outlook on Development. , profoundly summed up and made full use of the historical experience since the founding of the party, starting from the new reality, and created Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era is contemporary Chinese Marxism, 21st century Marxism, and the essence of the times of Chinese culture and Chinese spirit, realizing a new leap in the sinicization of Marxism. The Party has established Comrade Xi Jinping as the core of the Party Central Committee and the core of the whole Party, and establishes the guiding position of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. It is of decisive significance for advancing the historical process of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Contemporary China is experiencing the most ambitious and unique practice innovation in human history. The tasks of reform, development and stability, the many contradictions, risks and challenges, and the challenges of state governance are unprecedented. The world has undergone profound changes unseen in a century. Theoretical and practical questions that need to be answered urgently. We must accurately grasp the general trend of the times, have the courage to stand at the forefront of human development, listen to the voices of the people, respond to practical needs, adhere to emancipating the mind, seeking truth from facts, keeping upright and innovating, better unifying the adherence to Marxism and the development of Marxism, and continuing to advance the basic principles of Marxism Combining it with China‘s specific reality and with the excellent traditional Chinese culture, continuously promote theoretical innovation and practical innovation, develop Marxism in the interaction of practical innovation and theoretical innovation, and continuously promote the modernization of Marxism in China, so that the 21st century Chinese Marxism has shown stronger and more persuasive truth power and practical power.
