Under the leadership of the Communist Party, the people of the whole country are united in one heart, high-spirited, high-spirited, and break the blockade, subversion, and hostility of hostile forces at home and abroad. Aggression, independence, self-reliance and hard work, turned a weak and poor “Sick Man of East Asia” into the second largest economy in the world’s largest industrial country, a prosperous and strong new China. The people’s life has gone from shortage to abundance, from food and clothing to a well-off society, and has achieved a leap from standing up to becoming rich and strong.
“A nation without heroes is unfortunate. A nation that has heroes but does not know how to respect and love is incorrigible.” Looking at the world, all nations and nations respect and defend their heroes. However, for some time, there has been a tendency in China’s society to “stigmaize” the heroes and heroes, and the historical nihilism has emerged. Some people use the “retrospective history” banner to replace the historical facts with the delusion, replace the whole with the branch, and make a big essay, smashing and vilifying the people’s heroes.
These people are not restoring history, but distorting history; not discovering historical facts, but turning black and white; not academic research, but ulterior motives. In fact, it is a step by step, fundamentally denying the guiding position of Marxism, denying the leadership of the Communist Party of China, denying the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and denying the Chinese excellent culture and revolutionary spirit. If left unchecked, it will inevitably dispel people’s national consciousness, national identity, and impact socialist ideology. From the collapse of the Soviet Communist Party and the disintegration of the Soviet Union, it was from negating Lenin and Stalin, denying the heroes such as Paul and Zoya, and denying the history of the CPSU and the history of the Soviet Union, causing people to be confused and become an important promoter of the death of the party. The painful lessons of history warn us to always be vigilant and clearly opposed to historical illusion Nothing, and a resolute struggle against the words and deeds of the heroes.
Now, the world has seen a new situation of unprecedented change, and the new China has embarked on a new era of building socialism with Chinese characteristics. The people’s hero is the pioneer of the new journey, and the spirit of the people’s hero is a powerful force that inspires us to move forward. We must remember the people’s heroes, admire the people’s heroes, care for the people’s heroes, and defend the people’s heroes. In the whole society, a good atmosphere of seeing the good and the good, advocating the good, and striving for the vanguard is formed. Carry forward the kind of people’s heroes: the patriotic spirit of the world’s rise and fall, the responsibility of the husband, the spirit of struggle that is not afraid of suffering, the loyalty of dedication, the courage to take responsibility, the fear of danger, and the innovative spirit of the new road. Under the leadership of the Communist Party, we will unite as one, be down-to-earth, and work hard to contribute to building a socialist modernization and strengthening the country and realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
