Abstract
General Secretary Jinping Xi put forward the ‘Implementation Strategy for Rural Revitalization’ at the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. This is the first time that the Party Central Committee has raised the rural issue into a strategic issue. It proposed rural revitalization along with regional coordinated development and healthy China as a strategy for national development. Talents are the key to rural revitalization. As the ‘key minority’ of villages, village leaders have a crucial influence on rural development. This paper adheres to the basic standpoint of historical materialism and grasps the ethical relationship and moral life changes between village leaders and villages from the production and lifestyle of Chinese rural society. In the specific research process, the article uses the methods of text analysis, empirical research, and interdisciplinary method to conduct an ethical analysis of the village leaders' governance of the village during the transition process. The article pointed out that in the process of social transformation, some village leaders have gone astray into the evil path of ‘village hegemony’, ‘profit-sharing’ and ‘lazy politics’ by pursuing excessive personal gains. The reconstruction of moral authority by village leaders in the new era needs to start from the three dimensions of bottom line ethics, responsibility ethics and virtue ethics, stick to the interests of villagers, promote the development of villages, and consciously give back to the villages.
