At the same time, the tests of governance, reform and opening up, market economy, and external environment that our party faces will exist for a long time, and factors that affect the party’s advanced nature and weaken the party’s purity still exist. To promote the great social revolution, we must dare to face up to problems, deeply grasp the valuable experience of the party’s self-revolution, and constantly deepen the understanding of the laws of advancing the party’s self-revolution in the new era.
A deep understanding of the unique difficulties of a large party is an important prerequisite for advancing the party’s self-revolution.

How to ensure the high degree of centralization and unity of the whole party on the basis of common ideological theory is particularly difficult.” The Communist Party of China” “Great difficulty” is determined by a variety of factors. From the perspective of its basic nature, our party is the largest ruling party of Marxism in the world. In the historical process of comprehensively building a modern socialist country and comprehensively promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, it will inevitably face the erosion of Western ideology. In terms of size, our party has more than 96 million party members and more than 4.9 million grassroots party organizations. The party has many organizational levels and a long management chain, and it will face difficulties that many smaller political parties in the world have never faced. From the perspective of maintaining its advanced nature, the dangers of spiritual slack, incapacity, separation from the masses, and passive corruption faced by our party will exist for a long time.

The fight against corruption can only be strengthened, not relaxed. We must resolutely win the protracted battle against corruption and advance the great social revolution with the most thorough self-revolution.
We must stand firm against corruption. The party is the most reliable backbone for promoting social revolution, and ensuring that the party’s body is always healthy and full of vitality is a prerequisite for promoting social revolution. Corruption is the biggest cancer that endangers the vitality and combat effectiveness of the party.

It is necessary to deepen the rectification of corruption in areas where power is concentrated, capital-intensive, and resource-rich, insist on investigating both bribery and bribery, and punish new types of corruption and hidden corruption. It is also necessary to deepen the treatment of both symptoms and root causes, promote national anti-corruption legislation, strengthen the construction of a clean culture in the new era, and educate and guide the majority of party members and cadres to increase their awareness of not wanting to be corrupt.
The great social revolution forges and achieves a great party, and the great self-revolution guarantees and promotes a great cause. On the new journey in the new era, as long as we firmly grasp the important requirements of leading the great social revolution with a great self-revolution, and unswervingly build the party stronger and stronger, we will surely be able to promote the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics in a steady and far-reaching manner.
