After the 1990s, the internet technology has witnessed a rapid development and the human society has entered an information age with the internet as its main technological support. The net age is an age of media globalization. The rise and utilization of the internet has not only offered a rare chance for the ruling party to innovate and develop its ideology but also brought about intense impact. This paper, based on the analysis of the basic characteristics, functions of the ruling party's ideology, as well as the basic characteristics and functions of the internet as an information transmission technology, presents a detailed discussion on how to proactively deal with the intense impact by the internet on the ruling party's ideology. This dissertation will be of some instructive value to the enhancement and improvement of the CPC's leadership on the ideological work by means of a better utilization of the internet technology. It also will help maintain and solidify the dominant role of Marxism in China's ideological sphere. This paper consists of an introduction and six chapters. The introduction mainly introduces the current situation of the study of this topic and expounds the focal points, difficult points, points of penetration as well as the research methods employed. Chapter One analyzes the connotations, essential characteristics, basic functions and the functional factors of the formation and development of the ruling party's ideology. The ideology of the ruling party features practicability, continuity, permeability, as well as constructiveness and comprehensiveness. It possesses the functions of defence, mobilization, guidance and social conformity.

The criteria for judging the ruling party's ideological crisis are to what extent people believe in the ideology and to what extent the ideology functions. Based on the criteria, we may say that the major manifestation of the ruling party's ideological crisis is the crises of belief, legitimacy, social morality and the crisis of social conformity. Once the ideological crisis appears, it will undoubtedly shake the party's governing status, or even lead to a division and collapse of the party. Chapter Four discusses the innovation of the ruling party's ideological content, which is the fundamental way out in dealing with the ideological crisis. To innovate the ruling party's ideology, the principles of integrating theory with practice, combining inheritance with development and the principle of having both flexibility and openness should all be adhered to. On the basis of an accurate understanding a...
