Qiushi: The Chinese Communist Party Must Guide the Public in Literary and Art Productions

On July 24, 2013, Qiushi, a journal of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, published an article on how to establish a complete “guidance mechanism” to further “guide” the production of literary and art works. According to the article, “It is very common for different countries, different classes, and different political parties to use literary and art works to disseminate their values and to state their point of view and intent.” The Chinese Communist Party’s guiding ideology is Chinese style Marxism and socialist culture with Chinese characteristics.

The article proposed to adhere to value-oriented control mechanisms to guide literary and artistic productions, telling the public directly what the Party advocates and using legal regulations and government policies to control all literary and art production fields.
