Abstract

中共自1949年統治中國大陸後,便強調以共產主義作為中國社會的主導意識形態,並成為中共統治中國的主要政治正當性來源。可是,在經歷「後毛澤東時代」及「後六四時代」的中國社會,共產意識對大部份民眾而言已經欠缺吸引力,中共為了維持其執政的地位,故此必須利用其他的意識形態以重構其政治正當性。從主旋律電影《建國大業》的文本分析,可以了解到中共如何在這部描述其先祖輩取得中國政權的電影中,嵌入傳統中國政治文化中的「天命觀」、儒家的仁政德治等意識形態,以及反美的民族主義意識,藉此重塑中共的政治正當性。

Since 1949, the Chinese government has emphasized communism as the dominant ideology of Chinese society and has become the main source of political legitimacy for the CCP to rule China. However, in the Chinese society that experienced the "Post-Mao Zedong era" and the "Post- Tianmen era", the communist consciousness is already unattractive to most people in China. In order to maintain its ruling status, the CCP must use other ideologies to refactoring the political legitimacy. From the text analysis of the main melody film "The Founding of Republic", we can understand how the CCP embeds the " Destiny" in the traditional Chinese political culture, the ideology of the Confucian benevolent rule of virtue, and other ideologies in this film describing the ancestors' acquisition of the Chinese political power. And the anti-American nationalist consciousness, thereby reshaping the political legitimacy of the CCP.
