People’s Daily, the official newspaper of the Communist Party of China, published an article on December 02, 2010, emphasizing the significance of ideological work in “consolidating the Party’s ruling status,” “maintaining social harmony and stability,” and “driving forward the smooth development of socialism with Chinese characteristics.” The following are some of the key points:
- Always ensure the Party’s absolute leadership over the armed forces.
- Be more vigilant toward the hostile forces’ plots to Westernize and divide our country.
- Always ensure the smooth delivery of the Party’s administrative and military orders.
- Use media to propagandize the Party’s viewpoints. Take the earliest opportunity to cover the news about emergent incidents and major natural disasters so as to guide public opinion.
