Declaration: Why we can succeed

  Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, September 26 -

Why we can succeed


  2021 is the Xin Chou Year of the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

  In Tiananmen Square on July 1, the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China was grand and solemn, magnificent, and courtesy, heaven and earth, happy heaven and earth!

100 red flags fluttered in the wind, 100 salutes shook the world, 100 steps were shocking, "please rest assured that the party, strengthen the country," the passion echoed...the grandeur of a century-old party, the prosperous atmosphere of China, and the self-confidence of a great nation Self-improvement attracts the attention of the whole world.

General Secretary Xi Jinping solemnly declared to the world that the land of China has built a well-off society in an all-round way, and the realization of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has entered an irreversible historical process.

  Looking back on the two Jiazi years ago, it was also a Xinchou year in the lunar calendar. The Qing government was forced to sign the "Xinchou Treaty" that was humiliating and humiliating the country. At that time, the Taihedian Square had become a military training ground for the invaders, and the Chinese nation led the Eight-Power Allied Forces to invade. In the 20th century, the humiliation of the capital presents a tragic scene before the Chinese.

  In 1921, the Communist Party of China was founded, and it had no hesitation in assuming the historical mission of seeking happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation.

One hundred years have passed, the earth of China has undergone earth-shaking historical changes. The Chinese nation has ushered in a great leap from standing up, getting rich to becoming strong, and showing the world a prosperous and prosperous atmosphere.

  A hundred years of vicissitudes, a hundred years of great leaps and bounds.

Why can we succeed?

How can we continue to succeed?

General Secretary Xi Jinping raised and answered this question in his important speech at the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China: "Without the Communist Party of China, there would be no New China, and there would be no great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation." This is the most important historical conclusion. It is also the most valuable successful experience.


  History determines the theme, and chooses the true bearer of the historical mission.

  After the Opium War in 1840, the country was humiliated, the people suffered, and civilization was dusted. The Chinese nation suffered unprecedented disasters.

Since then, realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has become the greatest dream of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation, and has become the theme of the entire history of China since modern times.

In order to realize the dream of national rejuvenation, the Chinese people rose up in resistance, all kinds of forces succeeded one after another, and various plans were tested in turn.

  The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Movement, an attempt to realize "the world is one family, sharing peace," swept over half of China, effectively attacking the feudal ruling class and foreign aggressive forces, and shaking the foundation of the Qing government's rule.

As Marx said, the Taiping Rebellion "erupted into a raging fire in China", but "they had been arguing and clamoring for 10 years. The result was that everything was destroyed and nothing was built."

Relying on the old-style peasant uprising to "liberate China", "rejuvenate China" and "save the people" is nothing but an illusion.

  The Westernization Movement, an attempt to "strive for self-reliance and prosperity", made various efforts to maintain the feudal regime, "learning from the foreigners to control the foreigners", "learning from the middle school as the body, and Western learning for use", establishing enterprises, setting up Westernization, and introducing Western weapons, equipment, and science and technology. .

However, whether the "Anqing Ordnance Station", the "Mawei Military Port" or the "Beiyang Navy" were all set to sink and disappear during the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895, it proved that the Westernization Movement could not find a way out of poverty for China.

  The Reform Movement of 1898, which tried to "repair and save itself", was an effort to restore the decline of the feudal dynasty. From writing on the bus to constitutional monarchy, from the school of current affairs to the strong society, from the abolition of stereotypes to the Western learning, the bourgeois reform movement was vigorous.

However, the Restoration died in just a hundred days. The Six Gentlemen’s bloodthirsty tactics left behind the unfinished ambition of "the intention to kill the thief, but the powerless to return to heaven." lament.

  Sun Yat-sen, who called out "Revitalize China," led the Revolution of 1911 to overthrow the Qing Dynasty rule, establish the Republic of China, and put an end to China's 2,000-year-old feudal monarchy system.

However, the fruits of the revolution were stolen. "Impossible money and blood, and the pitiful purchase of a false republic." The old democratic revolution led by the bourgeoisie did not change the nature of China's semi-colonial and semi-feudal society, nor did it change the tragic fate of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation. .

  Who can undertake the mission of salvation and national rejuvenation?

History calls for real bearers, and national rejuvenation requires a new core leadership force.

Once the Communist Party of China was born, it resolutely took up this important historical task. With the heroic spirit of "sacrificing so much ambition" and the unremitting struggle of "dare to teach the sun and the moon to change the sky", it has established the outstanding achievements in history and made profound changes. The direction and process of the development of the Chinese nation after modern times has profoundly changed the future and destiny of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation, and profoundly changed the trend and pattern of world development.

  Recalling the past, "Chinese and dogs are not allowed to enter" left Chinese people with unforgettable memories of humiliation. What it reveals is the arrogance of the invaders; but now, the Chinese nation stands tall among the nations of the world, completely free from the "House of Invasion" Under, in the middle of the boat, and above the fire".

Once, in the huge old China, how many people had no tiles on top, no cones underneath, and so many people who were unclothed and could not eat enough to eat. Nowadays, the Chinese people have not only completely said goodbye to "serving slaves, beasts and horses, beauties and sheep". The tragic fate of "you can't survive on your knees" has historically solved the problem of absolute poverty. There will be no more years of starvation and coldness, and we have embarked on a broad road of comprehensive well-off and common prosperity.

  Recalling the past, Sun Yat-sen’s "Strategies for the Founding of a Nation" hopefully envisioned the construction of railways, roads, and large ports in China, connecting the north and south of the river, and the inland borders. It was once regarded as a “fantasy night”; today’s China, high-speed rail Speeding ahead of the world, highways are spreading across urban and rural areas, and seven out of ten major ports in the world are far beyond Sun Yat-sen's original vision.

Once, although we have nearly 20,000 kilometers of coastline, our dream can only stop at the shore; but now, our ocean-going ship shuttles through the world, and the giant ship slashes the waves. The dream has become a reality.

  Recalling the past, from the flying murals of Mogao Grottoes to the feats of flying to the sky of tens of thousands of households in the Ming Dynasty, dreaming of the stars and the sea is as long as the vicissitudes of the Chinese nation, from the crash of China’s first aircraft manufacturer Feng Ru to the “father of the rocket” "Qian Xuesen’s voyage back home, the Chinese nation’s journey to the sky was difficult and bumpy; now, "Sky Eye" asks Yu, "Beidou" shines, "Chang'e" goes to the moon, "Zhu Rong" explores the fire, and "tiangong". "Sky Survey..." The aerospace achievements of "Nine Heavens and Moon" astounded the world and shocked the world.

Once, from the "Tianjin Youth" magazine issued the "Olympic Three Questions" to Liu Changchun's journey across oceans to Los Angeles for the "One-person Olympics", the foreign media's scornful name of the "Sick Man of East Asia", and the comic ridicule of carrying a big duck egg on a stretcher were all. It hurts every Chinese person's heart; now, from the wonderful hosting of the Beijing Summer Olympics to the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics, we have answered "as you wish" to the "question of the Olympics".

Thousands of Chinese athletes are active in the Olympics. The number of gold medals and medals won are among the best. The five-star red flag is raised again and again, and the Volunteer March is played again and again. The strong physique and civilized spirit bring every Chinese son and daughter full of energy. confidence.

  "Everything is going, count the romantic figures, but also look at the present." Whoever can lead the people to achieve national rejuvenation, history will choose whoever, the times will favor whoever, and the glory will belong to whom!

For one hundred years, the Chinese Communist Party has united and led the people, focused on the theme of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, opened up a great road, created a great cause, achieved great achievements, and created a great spirit. A magnificent epic.

  Our party has won historical choices with struggle, sacrifice, and achievements.

This is the historical logic of upholding the party's leadership.


  The times are the people who write the papers, and the people are the people who read the papers.

  More than 80 years ago, American journalist Edgar Snow heartily praised in the book "Red Star Shines on China" that the Communists showed a kind of "power of destiny", "This kind of power is not fleeting, but It's a solid and firm fundamental vitality." But he didn't know where this destiny power came from.

  Chinese sages have said: The emperor has no relatives, and only virtue is supplementary.

The Chinese Communists believe that: there has never been a savior, and no immortal emperor.

Heaven is the common people; the power of destiny is the power of the people.

  Who can really unite the people together can push the wheel of history forward.

  "A country does not know that there is a people, but does the people know that there is a country?" This kind of scattered and insensitive state is the result of the people's long-term exploitation, oppression, and enslavement.

The vicious and extremely vicious invaders, the decadent Qing government, the feudal warlords who ruled in a melee, and the dictatorship of the Kuomintang made the people totally invisible to hope and ray of light.

After the founding of the Communist Party of China, “arousing millions of workers and peasants to work together”, the Chinese people changed from passive to active in spirit. It has become the backbone of the Chinese nation.

  When the Chinese nation was in the most dangerous time, Tan Kah Kee, the leader of overseas Chinese in Nanyang, visited Yan'an and exclaimed: “There, everyone is equal and loves each other like brothers. They work hard and stand hard in construction, and have achieved remarkable results...” Excited, dreaming, and celebrating for my greater Chinese nation!" "China has a savior, victory is guaranteed, and China's hope is in Yan'an!"

  Who can truly represent the interests of the people, and work with the people, sacrifice together, and create together, the people will choose who and who they will work with.

  For the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the happy life of the Chinese people, "since ancient times, there has not been a group in China, like the Communist Party, who sacrificed everything and sacrificed many people to do such a big thing."

From the tyrants to divide the land to "the cultivators have their land", from uniting the entire nation's anti-Japanese forces to defeat the Japanese invaders to leading the masses of the people to overthrow the Kuomintang reactionary rule, from "one transformation and three reforms" to reform and opening up, from comprehensive well-off to common prosperity From the "four modernizations" to building a socialist modern country in an all-round way, the party and the people are thinking about each other, working hard together, and bleeding together.

The people put "the last piece of cloth to make military uniforms; the last bite of food to make rations; the last son to send to the battlefield" because the people have a steelyard in their hearts and know who is really working for them.

The Chinese people understand a truth: if you follow the Communist Party, there will be a way out; if you follow the Communist Party, you will be happy.

  The Communist Party fights against the world and guards the world, it is the hearts of the people, and it is for the people to live a good life.

From being a cow and a horse to being the master of the house, from a poor life to a good life, from absolute poverty to an all-round well-off, from displacement to living and working in peace and contentment, from selling children and girls to raising the young, from having no place to rely on the old to supporting the old...1.4 billion Many Chinese people have never been so wealthy and proud as they are today, living with dignity, smiling happily, struggling passionately on the beautiful homeland of more than 9.6 million square kilometers, full of the ambition of being a Chinese. The self-confidence and self-improvement of looking at the world.

  General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out at the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, “The Communist Party of China has always represented the fundamental interests of the overwhelming majority of the people. It has no special interests of its own, and never represents any interest group or any powerful group. The interests of any privileged class. Any attempt to separate and confront the Chinese Communist Party from the Chinese people will never succeed! More than 95 million Chinese Communists will not agree! More than 1.4 billion Chinese people will not agree either! "The loud and loud words fully expressed the common aspirations of hundreds of millions of people.

  Whoever can win the people will be able to return to the world.

  On the eve of the founding of New China, the land of China staged a vivid scene of the convergence of two historical torrents from the south to the north.

When millions of heroes crossed the river and liberated the whole of China from north to south, various democratic parties, patriots, and social figures responded to the call of the Communist Party of China, or took trains or ships, and gathered around the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China from south to north. , To participate in the grand event, to welcome the birth of the new China.

This lively historical drama depicts a "picture of thousands of miles" of the party leading the people in the world.

Soong Ching Ling expressed emotion at the first plenary meeting of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference: "We have reached today's historical position because of the leadership of the Communist Party of China. This is the only political party that has the power of the people." Comrade Mao Zedong once said categorically: "God. Who is it? He is the people!"

  Whether in the past, present, or in the future, the Chinese Communist Party has not and will never fail the people's choices.

"The Chinese Communist Party has never used any magic, they only know the changes that the people desire, and they support these changes." American journalists Bai Xiude and Jia Anna commented in the book "Thunder in China".

  "Long live the people!" On the day of the founding ceremony, Comrade Mao Zedong made a strong historical tone.

"Long live the great, glorious, and correct Communist Party of China!" "Long live the great, glorious, and heroic Chinese people!" At the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping responded with the times.

  Who can represent the interests of the people, realize, safeguard, and develop the fundamental interests of the overwhelming majority of the people, and serve the people wholeheartedly, the people will support whoever they are and follow.

The Chinese Communists have used their sincerity, enthusiasm and hard work, with their vanguard role and the flesh-and-blood connection with the people, leading the people to create a tangible and happy life, thus moving the people and winning the people’s choice, support and support. Love it.

This is the theoretical logic of upholding the party's leadership.


  Advantage is strength. Only when there is comparison, there is discrimination, and when there is advantage, there is hope of victory.

  In the course of one hundred years of struggle, the Chinese people have deeply realized that the leadership of the Communist Party of China is our greatest advantage from victory to victory. It is the foundation and lifeblood of the party and the country, and the interests and destiny of the people of all ethnic groups in the country. Tie.

It is precisely under the leadership of the Communist Party of China that we have done many things that others cannot do, and we have done many things that others cannot do. We have created a human miracle that no political force in the world can create.

  It is precisely because of the greatest advantage of the party’s leadership that we have made great achievements in rapid economic development.

  The economy is the foundation, and the advantages of the party's leadership are concentrated in economic construction.

More than 70 years ago, New China was "full of depression, a hundred wastes waiting to be rejuvenated." Comrade Mao Zedong once said with deep feeling: "What can we make now? An airplane, a tank, or a tractor cannot be manufactured." It was our party that united and led the people to write "the latest and most beautiful picture" on "a piece of white paper."

For decades, our party has persisted in leading the practice of economic construction by formulating five-year plans or plans. As of 2020, 13 have been completed and the fourteenth five-year plan is being implemented.

Through the step-by-step implementation, relay promotion, and rolling implementation of plans or plans, we will consistently move towards the established goals and promote sustained and rapid economic development.

Many people in Western countries are envious of our five-year plan. They believe that the Communist Party of China can think and plan the country’s future development goals and paths step by step. It is both continuity and forward-looking, which is unimaginable and difficult for Western countries. accomplish.

  Over the past 70 years since the founding of New China, China’s economy has grown in real terms by approximately 189 times. From 1949, when the per capita national income was only 27 US dollars, to the per capita GDP exceeding 10,000 US dollars for two consecutive years; from a backward agricultural country to 11 consecutive years. Became the world's No. 1 manufacturing country in 2015.

Take my country’s GDP growth as an example. It surpassed Italy in 2001, France in 2005, Britain in 2006, Germany in 2007, and Japan in 2010, becoming the second in the world.

In 2020, the GDP will exceed RMB 100 trillion, and the total economic output will exceed 70% of that of the United States.

The vigorous development model and sustained and rapid economic growth have laid a solid material foundation for realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation into an irreversible historical process.

  Stability is the foundation of development and a condition for people to live and work in peace and contentment.

It is precisely because of having the greatest advantage of the party's leadership that we have achieved long-term social stability.

  China today is a peaceful China and one of the most secure countries in the world.

The people’s satisfaction with the construction of a safe China reached 98.4%, and people sighed: “The world we live in is not peaceful, we are just fortunate to live in a peaceful country.” Today’s China is a happy China, and the people’s sense of gain, The sense of happiness and security has steadily improved.

According to statistics from well-known international polling agencies, China has the highest happiness index among the participating countries in 2020, and the proportion of Chinese people who feel very happy or relatively happy is as high as 93%.

"I will enter China without regrets in this life, and regenerate a flower planter in the next life." This kind of online language and language speaks the common aspirations of hundreds of millions of people.

Today's China is a harmonious China, and the sense of community of the Chinese nation has increased significantly.

The 56 ethnic groups hug each other tightly like pomegranate seeds. All ethnic groups are inseparable from each other. "The Chinese nation is one family and builds the Chinese dream together" has become a vivid portrayal of national unity and progress in the new era.

  Especially in the fight against the new crown pneumonia epidemic, we took the lead in controlling the spread of the epidemic. To this day, we are still the country with the lowest incidence rate and the lowest number of deaths among the major countries in the world.

In comparison, people once again clearly see the advantages of the leadership of the Communist Party of China in national governance.

  Living in a harmonious and stable China, the people increasingly support and support the leadership of the party.

The report "Understanding the Resilience of the Chinese Communist Party: A Long-term Survey of Chinese Public Opinion" released by the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in 2020 shows that since 2003, the Chinese people's satisfaction with the government has continued to increase, and their satisfaction with the Chinese Communist Party has continued to exceed 90%.

  Winning the first opportunity in the competition for comprehensive national strength is the key to national rejuvenation.

It is precisely because of the greatest advantage that we have the leadership of the party that we have become the greatest positive energy that determines the world's major changes unseen in a century.

  In October 1961, Montgomery, who ended his visit to China, told the Sunday Times of the United Kingdom: “The Western world is best to establish and maintain friendly relations with the People’s Republic of China; this country needs to treat each other as equals; China will become a powerful country no less than any country in the world. A great country, the largest country in the world, is moving forward." Arnold Joseph Toynbee, who has experienced two world wars and witnessed modern east and west. British historians of the rise and fall believe that "the future of mankind lies in the East, and Chinese civilization will become the leader of the world."

Their predictions are becoming reality.

  Looking at the world, the world today is undergoing major changes unseen in a century. A distinctive feature of this major change is that the trend of rising eastward and falling westward is irreversible.

The Communist Party of China has united and led the Chinese people to actively nurture opportunities in the crisis, open new opportunities amidst changes, and achieve new development and progress and become a beautiful landscape in the world.

The greatest significance of China’s peaceful development to the world lies not only in the broad and profound international impact brought about by one-fifth of the world’s population’s prosperity, but also in the new Chinese-style modernization path created by China and the new form of human civilization created by China, which contributes to the construction of mankind. A better society provides Chinese wisdom and Chinese solutions.

  Now, the international community’s perspective of observing China has undergone an important change: from focusing on China’s achievements, to focusing on the political reasons and system secrets of China’s achievements; from asking if the Chinese Communist Party can and if it can be done, to eager to understand the Chinese Communist Party. Why and why? From marveling at what the Chinese Communist Party can and what the Chinese Communist Party can do, to thinking about how you can do it.

It can be said that the "rule of China" has an increasing influence in the world.

  Historical practice has continuously proved that the Communist Party of China is the most reliable backbone and anchoring star of the Chinese people when storms strike.

The leadership of the Communist Party of China is the concentrated expression of China's power, spirit, and efficiency of revolution, construction, reform, and rejuvenation, war floods, earthquake disasters, poverty eradication, and epidemic control.

In overcoming all kinds of difficulties and obstacles and dealing with all kinds of risks and challenges, the Chinese Communist Party can.

This is the practical logic of adhering to the party's leadership.

  Looking back on the past and looking forward to the future, with the strong leadership of the Chinese Communist Party and the close unity of the people of all ethnic groups across the country, the goal of building a modern and powerful socialist country in an all-round way will surely be realized, and the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will surely be realized!
