Chinese Officials Seek to Pump Up the Party

I30149-2004Dec02 From the Washington Post: “As China moves ever more deeply into a free-market economy, the ruling Communist Party has decided to launch an 18-month campaign to reinvigorate socialist ideology and strengthen the party’s leading role in society.

The campaign, scheduled to begin in January, reflects concern among the senior leadership that more than two decades of market reforms have dulled the party’s appeal, caused official corruption and raised questions about the relevancy of communism even among some party members, party sources said. ”
