Interpretation of the historical resolutions of the CCP. 1|Self-revolution is also the anchor of Hong Kong governance

In November last year, the Sixth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China passed the third "Historical Resolution". This is a major event for the Chinese Communist Party, but what it means to Hong Kong is rarely mentioned.

The Communist Party of China is the ruling party in China, and its political behavior will inevitably affect Hong Kong.

More importantly, China's development experience in the past few decades has attracted worldwide attention. The historical summary of the CCP is a material that any politician should refer to. As a special administrative region of China, Hong Kong is even more accessible.

Recently, the magazine "Seeking Truth" published the content of the speech delivered by the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China Xi Jinping at the Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee, making it easier for everyone to understand the thinking context of the "Resolution of History".

Therefore, I chose two topics from my speech: "self-revolution" and "modernization", trying to find a shortcut for readers to understand the "Resolution of History" and the CCP.

Hong Kong people generally do not understand the CCP, let alone see the laws or ideological system from its words and deeds, and can only grope in some words and phrases.

This kind of cognition that lacks foundation and is grasped through appearances is easy to be misled. It is no wonder that the CCP recently launched the third "Historical Resolution" in a grand manner, but it has not caused any discussion in Hong Kong, let alone whether it will have any enlightenment for Hong Kong.

Western-educated Hong Kong people also rarely understand the CCP’s emphasis on history, but if they don’t understand the history of the CCP and why it attaches so much importance to history, they will not be able to understand why it insists on “one country, two systems” in Hong Kong, and this is not expedient. It is a system design supported by the core concepts of the CCP’s historical understanding.

The CCP's emphasis on history stems from two aspects.

First of all, traditional Chinese civilization is a knowledge integration based on the laws of historical development, and it is a collection of knowledge and ideas from dynasties and dynasties.

"Siku Quanshu" is a case of a collection of knowledge according to the classics, history, subsections and collections, and "history" is the connection between the important context and all the content.

Second, the core of Marxist philosophy is “historical materialism.” As a socialist political party, the CCP, of course, has a deep understanding of the laws of historical development, and it is the basis for its understanding of the political universe.

Therefore, the "Historical Resolution" of the Sixth Plenary Session is not a propaganda material or an individual's political expression, but the premise of how the Communist Party of China views the social reality of China today, the laws of governance, and what tasks the rulers undertake for the country's development in different periods.

The history discussed here does not refer to simple historical events, but to find out the life pursuit of the people and the value context of society from historical experience, so as to prescribe the right medicine and complete the task of the ruler.

The job of a politician is to deal with the problems of current social governance. However, if governance is not based on the understanding and reflection of history, if we do not know where we came from and where we are going, it will only be nothing, and the rulers will not be able to Know the situation and aspirations of the people.

This is the significance of the CCP's review of its century-old history.

The theme of the CCP's third "Historical Resolution" is "achievement" and "experience".

Break the law of political cycle with self-revolution

Xi Jinping mentioned the periodic law many times in the discussion of the "Historical Resolution" of the Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.

As early as 1945, Mao Zedong talked about the law of cycles when discussing the political landscape of post-war China with the democratic parties.

Huang Yanpei, one of the founders of the NLD at that time, put forward the observation that "its prosperity is also booming, and its death is also sudden" in a talk later called by historians as "cavern pair", questioning how the CCP can break through the historical politics of continuous dynasties. law.

Mao Zedong believed that "democracy" could make society break out of the cyclical law of the rise and fall of regimes, while at the Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee, Xi Jinping believed that in addition to the people-centered governance that could solve the cyclical law, the CCP's insistence on "self-revolution" was also a way to break the cyclical law. Periodic laws provide the path.

He said, "After a hundred years of struggle, especially the new practice since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, our party has given a second answer, which is self-revolution." In fact, whether it is Mao Zedong or Xi Jinping, what they want to explain is that It revolves around three aspects: people-centered, the essence of the CCP, and the common value pursuit between the two.

The West has been calling for democracy over the past 100 years, but apparently it has not really achieved democracy because of this.

If the people really are the masters of the country, why is there a serious disparity between the rich and the poor and class antagonism?

Why is there turmoil and war everywhere?

Why are there non-stop racial and religious conflicts?

Democracy is not a slogan, let alone elections. It must rely on a series of excellent social and economic governance measures. Politicians who clamor for democracy have historically proved that they are only "dinners" of the wealthy capitalists and industrialists.

Democracy is not about poverty and displacement, much less freedom for the wealthy.

Capital will not attach importance to democracy, especially economic democracy.

When wealth is concentrated to a certain level, social reality can no longer cover the injustice and uselessness of the system. The result is, of course, that capital continues to develop, and lame democracy begins to expose its flaws, and it is no longer even visible.

Isn't the situation in Western countries, especially the United States today, the best evidence?

Why is the CCP's strong push for the "one must-have" poverty alleviation policy that Western governments dare not criticize as autocratic?

Why did the CCP propose to prohibit the disorderly expansion of capital, but Western economists did not use market economic theory to question it?

Why does China develop high technology and promote the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry, so that Western politicians can only follow step by step?

Because Western elites know that the Chinese people are benefiting from these policies, and the people of Western countries are also calling on their governments to promote the same policies. Unfortunately, the politicians who lead them lack the courage and ability to recognize and implement them. .

In the discussion of the "Historical Resolution" of the Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee, Xi Jinping gave Mao Zedong's second answer to how to break the law of the political cycle in the "cavern pair" - self-revolution.

People-centred responsibility for governance

If you want to ask what kind of political party the CCP is, the best description is: a political organization that seeks truth from facts and assumes governance responsibilities.

It has different responsibilities at different times.

In its early days, it was a military and revolutionary organization whose purpose was to use violence to break the old system and create a new society.

After the founding of the People's Republic of China, it was a learning group trying to build a fair society, sometimes even a reckless teenager, constantly trying and making mistakes and exercising the methods and abilities of governing the country and society.

Decades ago, it determined its professional direction, single-mindedly promoted reforms to build the national economy, and constantly tried various new methods of economic and social governance.

In recent years, it has found a modernization path that is more suitable for China, and has accumulated better experience, and its self-confidence has become more solid. It proposes to systematically unite the people to build a modern and powerful country.

What connects all this is the "original mission" and "national rejuvenation" that the CCP has often mentioned in recent years.

During the above-mentioned four historical stages, the CCP has continued to focus on improving people’s lives. There have been mistakes in the process, even serious ones, but they have not changed their original intentions, and they have continued to promote self-correction and transcendence. There is no imported ideology— - Whether it is communism represented by the Soviet Union, or capitalism represented by Western countries - shaken its fundamental direction, and finally succeeded in finding its own path.

If there is no such firm persistence and belief, a group of people who are unwavering will not be achieved.

However, how is this persistence and belief achieved?

It is through continuous learning and continuous self-revolution.

The CCP, which has experienced the test of a hundred years, has proved that this kind of "self-revolution" is an effective way to ensure that the original intention is not changed, and the people-centered governance will not be deformed.

What the CCP and the Chinese people have in common is that everyone pursues a fair and just society, and they know that without fairness and justice, the country's prosperity will be fleeting and fleeting, and the people's good life cannot be guaranteed at all.

This is the fundamental essence of the Datong society in ancient China or the socialism that everyone knows today.

The truth is actually very simple. Society is originally for everyone, and people become people through society. In this case, can democracy run counter to fairness and justice?

There can be no democracy without fairness and justice. How can there be fairness and justice in a society led by a certain interest class, especially a society led by capital?

Only when the people and the governance team firmly pursue the same values, and continue to reform and improve their governance system and governance capabilities, can they be able to open up roads and build bridges in the face of water.

"Stepping onto a higher-quality, more efficient, more equitable, more sustainable and more secure development path" is the pursuit of China's economy.

Understanding the 100-year-old CCP is the foundation of Hong Kong governance

The law of historical cycle has always been regarded as the basis for discussing the rise and fall of regimes, and history has repeatedly proved that the solution to the dilemma of the law of historical cycle has never been, and cannot be, the struggle for power.

Only by recognizing that the historical cycle law itself is not an appropriate proposition, and that power is only a tool of governance, its legitimacy is based on whether the people's lives are guaranteed and whether the society is functioning effectively, will we not be entangled by the cycle law.

The prosperity of a society has always been achieved by those in power who do not always reflect on their own past and think about the needs of the people. Once they go against the road, push the responsibility to the outside world, and refuse to bear it, the decline of society will not be far away, and the instability of power will lead to can happen anytime.

When Huang Yanpei put forward that "the prosperity is also booming, and the death is also sudden", he raised the question of the century about the political phenomenon at that time.

Mao Zedong gave an answer suitable for the political situation at that time, and from the perspective of a socialist revolutionist, he proposed a "democratic" solution.

Now, based on the practical experience and lessons of the Cultural Revolution and reform and opening up, especially the historical understanding gained in the process of economic construction, Xi Jinping has put forward a response to the era of "self-revolution" from a methodological level.

When the Communist Party of China and the Chinese people have an insistence on fairness and justice, that is, they have a deep understanding of socialist values, they should no longer focus on the historical cycle law, but should go beyond this historical understanding and resolve the issue of power through power. structure to examine the historical constraints of periodic law.

It is not easy for Hong Kong people to accurately understand the historical cognition of the CCP.

In the blink of an eye, the CCP has become a major party for a century, and today's young people only have a half-knowledge of the Hong Kong-British era more than 20 years ago. How can they imagine that they will grasp a broader history and have an understanding of the old China?

A thousand miles begins with a single step.

Since the CCP has just released its third historical resolution, it has introduced its own century-old growth process well, and has given a more detailed explanation of its historical mission at this stage. Hong Kong should also read it carefully. This is very helpful for understanding the CCP and the past century. Changes in China, including how this historical background led to the proposal of "One Country, Two Systems", is a good starting point.

Without accumulating a few steps, you will not be able to reach a thousand miles.

For young people, even if only a small part of them has strengthened this historical understanding, it will provide a more solid foundation for "Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong".

Understanding the CCP and the changes in China over the past century will provide a more solid foundation for "Hong Kong people governing Hong Kong".

Take the initiative to walk out of the unique path of "Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong"

In fact, the "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong's practice is one of the means to deal with the cyclical law from the perspective of state and social governance. In reality, we agree that the system designed by Hong Kong to continue its own historical development track is in line with the historical stage China and Hong Kong are in, and it is a portrayal of the CCP's "self-revolution".

Compared with the Western society that believes that the world can only have one democracy, one modernization path, or even one religion, the CCP, which is regarded as an autocratic dogma, can implement another system in the place it rules, which is enough to prove that this is the respect for democracy.

Of course, designing a system does not mean that it will live or even succeed.

No path will be smooth sailing, and no achievements will be unearned. The country has overcome difficulties and walked out of its own socialist path. How can Hong Kong not take responsibility for walking out of the unique path of "Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong"?
