Marxist-Leninist States have not escaped this apparently global trend. But while the construction of systems of denunciation, exclusion and rectification have been largely driven by social and market forces in liberal democratic states, in China, such systems are likely to be much more centrally organized and public. Where alignments of economic and societal forces drive such systems in the West, in China such systems are driven by the vanguard and operationalized through organs of its administrative apparatus.
Where in the West, denunciation is centered on the great anti-discrimination campaigns of the last half decade, now intensified, in Marxist Leninist States such systems of denunciation are geared to the protection of the integrity of the vanguard system itself. These are encompassed not merely in the great patriotic campaigns (themselves a proxy for the development of the ideal member of collective society), but also in the inculcation of the principle of a vanguard led society. Expressions of disloyalty or disrespect, in both contexts, to the great principles to be protected must be denounced to protect the core principles on which the integrity of each system, respectively, is grounded.
It follows that the system of denunciation in China, especially during the celebrations of the CPC's centennial, would focus on the preservation of the correct view of Chinese history, and the political economic model that has made China what it is today. Included, then, among expressions that must be denounced are:
1. Distorting the history of the Party, the history of New China, the history of reform and opening up, and the history of socialist development; 2. Attacking the party’s leadership, guiding ideology, principles and policies; 3. Defamation of heroes and martyrs; 4. Denial of Chinese excellent traditional culture, revolutionary culture, and advanced socialist culture. [1.歪曲党史、新中国史、改革开放史、社会主义发展史的；2.攻击党的领导、指导思想、方针政策的；3.诋毁英雄烈士的；4.否定中华优秀传统文化、革命文化、社会主义先进文化的。] (“涉历史虚无主义有害信息举报专区”)
