Jiang on emancipation of the mind
( 2002-05-31 14:28) (chinadaily.com.cn)

Top leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Jiang Zemin Friday callrf on the whole party to adhere to the ideological guideline of emancipating the mind, seeking truth from facts, and upholds the spirit of marching in step with the time.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony of the Party School of the CPC Central Committee, Jiang, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said this ideological guideline decides the progressive nature of the Party's ruling stand, adding that the future of the country depends on whether the Party can adhere to it.

He said the whole Party should keep in mind the profound changes that have taken place in the world's political, economic, cultural and technological spheres since the publication of the "Manifesto of the Communist Party" written by Karl Marx and F. Engels some 150 years ago, as well as the fundamental changes in China's socialist construction, in people's working and life conditions and in social environment, so as to make correct judgments on how the changes challenge the work of the Party.

He said it is wrong and harmful to negate the scientific nature of Marxism and deny the achievements of the forerunners of socialism. But he also emphasized that the CPC must develop Marxism and apply it to practice.

The Party's nature can only be tested through history, to see whether it can develop advanced productivity and culture, and safeguard the basic interests of the people, Jiang said, adding that these are the two preconditions representing the wishes of the people and the essence of the cause of the building of socialism.
