● There is no original intention, nobler than serving the people; no mission, greater than benefiting the people. To maintain and consolidate the party's long-term ruling position and ensure that the party's cause will always be invincible, we must always remember our original intentions, keep in mind our mission, and serve the people to the end
● Persist in starting from the little things around you, consistently and steadfastly, working hard through water and stone, taking serving the people as the ideal starting point, the fulcrum of faith, and the value goal pursued by lifelong struggle.
General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out at the educational conference on the theme of "Don't forget the original heart and keep the mission in mind". Keeping the original heart is to keep in mind the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly, and keep in mind that the people's longing for a better life is our goal. This fundamentally reveals the essence of not forgetting the original intention, which is to always keep in mind the fundamental purpose of the party, never forget the people, and live up to the people. Party members and cadres must turn their original will into perseverance and keep the original heart with perseverance, never forgetting the solemn oath when they joined the party, and fulfilling their mission of serving the people throughout their lives.
On September 8, 1944, Comrade Mao Zedong delivered a speech entitled "Serving the People" at the memorial service of revolutionary martyr Zhang Side. For the first time, he clarified the thought of serving the people, shining the light of Marxist truth.
The proposal to serve the people is an inheritance and development of Marxist historical materialism. Historical activities are activities of the masses. For the first time in human history, Marx and Engels thoroughly and comprehensively answered the question of who is the creator of history and created an ideological system of "for the benefit of the vast majority of people". This is the theoretical source of the thought of serving the people. From this standpoint, Comrade Mao Zedong put forward the value orientation of the concept of the masses with unique Chinese characteristics, which was brilliantly summarized as "serving the people." The Seventh National Congress of the Communist Party of China raised the whole-hearted service to the people to the height of the party's sole purpose, and carried it into the party constitution to this day. The idea of serving the people has enriched and developed Marxist historical materialism and has become our party's brightest political background.
The proposal to serve the people is a transformation and sublimation of the traditional Chinese culture's people-based thinking. The term "people-oriented" was first seen in "Shangshu · Song of the Five Sons": "Minwei State-Based, Bengu Bonding." It means that the country is basically the people, and people live and work in peace and stability. People-oriented thinking is an important content of China's excellent traditional culture and contains rich political wisdom. Of course, the essence of the ancient people-based thought was to alleviate class contradictions and safeguard the interests of the ruling class, and its class limitations were obvious. Comrade Mao Zedong promoted the idea of "the country is based on the people" in traditional culture and the viewpoints of "emphasizing the people", "raising the people" and "committing people" to the "building the party for the people" doctrine of the party, The "minority" promotes the mass line "from the masses to the masses," clearly stating that serving the people is striving to realize the interests of the broadest masses of the people, and "the Communists must be the people's attendants" and not "the officials." "Master" and so on, these are all sublations to the traditional people-based thinking and have achieved a qualitative leap.
The proposal to serve the people is a condensed and manifestation of the party's nature and purpose, stand and mission. Serving the people, revealing and displaying the party's most pristine feelings, the most sincere attitude, and the most distinct purpose, expresses the ideals and pursuits of the Communist Party of China. Over the past 98 years, the Communist Party of China has persisted in implementing this fundamental purpose with practical action, and has gone through hurdles and victorious battles. History has proven that there is no original intention, nobler than serving the people; no mission, greater than benefiting the people. Our party relied on its fundamental purpose to win the trust, support, support and love of the overwhelming majority of the people, and ultimately seized power. Similarly, in order to maintain and consolidate the party's long-term ruling status and ensure that the party's cause is always invincible, we must always remember our original intentions, keep in mind our mission, and work to the end.
In October 2015, at the Fifth Plenary Session of the Eighteenth Central Committee of the Party, General Secretary Xi Jinping first proposed the people-centered development idea, and established it in the report of the 19th National Congress of the Party as a new era to uphold and develop a society with Chinese characteristics Is one of the 14 basic strategies of ideology. The proposal of "people-centered" is a re-emphasis, true adherence, and new interpretation of the party's fundamental purpose.
Adhering to the people-centered principle reflects Xi Jinping's fundamental stand of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. The people's position is a distinctive mark that distinguishes Marxist political parties from other political parties. It must never change, and if it changes, it will deteriorate and change color. Comrade Xi Jinping has the deepest understanding, the most thorough understanding, and the most thorough practice. He repeatedly emphasized that "the people's longing for a better life is our goal of struggle" "adhering to the people's interests above all else is the fundamental principle of the Communists in handling issues of interest" "the people are the highest arbiter and final judge of our party's work "" To make the people happy is the party's cause "and so on. These important conclusions are a vivid reflection of Comrade Xi Jinping's adherence to the people-centered ruling concept.
Sticking to the people as the center reflects the consistent pursuit of Comrade Xi Jinping's practice in politics. Comrade Xi Jinping has always practiced the party's purpose no matter when, where, or in any post, and sincerely acted as a public servant of the people. To love the people, to love the people, to respect the people, and to rely on the people is the only main line that runs through his practice in politics. When working in Zhengding, he always rode his bike to the countryside to join the crowd. In Ningde, Fujian, he promoted the "four lower-level grassroots" working methods of receiving letters from the lower grass-roots level, on-site office-level grass-roots level, investigating and studying the lower-level grass-roots level, and propagating the Party's guidelines and policies. In Fuzhou, he advocated the activities of "Four Ten Thousand Family" to enter Wanjiamen, to know the family situation, to solve the family's worries, and to do everything. These early years of political practice and affection for the people loved the people, and accumulated the valuable political qualities of Comrade Xi Jinping "serving the people", "dedicating the people", and "deserving the people." Therefore, the development of the people-centered development idea is by no means accidental but inevitable.
Sticking to the people as the center reflects Comrade Xi Jinping's sincere feelings for the people and the people. The word "people" is as important as Comrade Xi Jinping and as heavy as Mount Tai. He always sees himself as a member of the ordinary working people, and always has a sincere and deep feeling for the people. He once said, "My ruling philosophy can be summed up as: serving the people and taking on the responsibilities that should be fulfilled." In response to a question about "what is the mood when elected as president of the country", he said, "I will be without me. Live up to the people. I am willing to be a state of "selflessness" and dedicate myself to China's development. "These simple words fully demonstrate that Comrade Xi Jinping has always been in the heart of the people, working with one another, working hard for unity, and fighting for unity. mind. Adhering to the people as the center is precisely the natural manifestation of Comrade Xi Jinping's public servants 'sentiment, the masses' sentiments, and the people's livelihood, as well as the refinement and sublimation of his thoughts and theories for the people's feelings.
Comrade Xi Jinping has stated many times that "serving the people is the bounden duty of Communists." For Communists to fulfill this sacred mission, they must serve the people wholeheartedly and dedicate themselves to the dedication of the people. They must be reflected in daily life and implemented in their work. In particular, the following aspects must be handled properly.
Handle the relationship between the people and me, and put the people at the top of their hearts. Recognizing oneself clearly and rectifying relations with the people is the first and foremost question that Communists must answer. The common people are heaven, the common people are earth, and we are just a dust between heaven and earth, just the people's servants. Facts have proven that only when we treat the people as relatives will the people regard us as relatives; only when we put the people at the highest position in our hearts will the people put the party at the highest position in our hearts. Without this, it is impossible to think of the masses, to worry about the masses, to worry about the masses, and to consider themselves as "official lords", and they will be arrogant, arbitrary and arbitrary in front of the masses, and even Ignore the sufferings of the masses and infringe upon the interests of the masses.
Deal with the relationship between the top and the bottom, and integrate the responsibility for the top with the responsibility for the bottom. Comrade Xi Jinping pointed out: "For leading cadres at all levels, responsibility for the top and the bottom is always unified and indivisible. To the party is to be responsible to the people; to the people is to be responsible to the party." This An important exposition provides important guidelines for us to deal with the relationship between up and down. In the new era, party members and cadres must be responsible for the top. The most fundamental thing is to build up the "four consciousnesses", strengthen the "four self-confidences", and achieve "two maintenances." To safeguard, realize, and develop the fundamental interests of the overwhelming majority of the people; to achieve a high degree of unity of responsibility for the top and for the bottom, the most fundamental thing is to continue to reform the mind, improve the style of work, and adhere to the principles of openness and honesty Consciously divide the party's worries and benefit the people.
Handle the relationship between knowledge and action, and transform the purpose and consciousness of serving the people into practical actions. Comrade Xi Jinping pointed out: "Knowledge is the foundation and prerequisite, and action is the focus and the key. We must promote knowledge with action, promote knowledge with action, and achieve unity of knowledge and action." To achieve unity of knowledge and action, we must first understand the party's purpose. Of course, and knowing why, he truly internalized the concept of purpose in his heart and mind, firmly established his sense of public servants, and sincerely done good deeds for the people. Secondly, we must adhere to the principle of applying what we have learned, truly externalize the purpose of serving the people, implement it, and go deep into the grassroots and the masses, understand the wishes of the masses, listen to the voices of the masses, and strive to solve the troubles and troubles of the masses.
Handle the relationship between beginning and end, and make serving the people a lifetime instead of a conscious pursuit. Comrade Mao Zedong said: "It is not difficult for a person to do something good, but it is difficult to do good things all his life." No matter how long the road is, the mission cannot be changed; no matter how difficult it is, the original intention cannot be changed. As a Communist, we must persist in starting from small things around us, consistently and steadfastly, working hard through water and stone, and taking serving the people as the ideal starting point, the fulcrum of faith, and the value goal pursued for life.
