Motherland, no Abstract Thing

Recent Chinese history has shown that only socialism can save China, and only socialism with Chinese characteristics can develop China. In socialist China, patriotism and socialism are naturally unified. Comrade Deng Xiaoping once said:

“There are people who say that not loving socialism doesn’t amount to not loving the motherland. How could the motherland an abstract thing? If they don’t love the New Socialist China under the leadership of the Communist Party, what do they love?”

Therefore, in contemporary China, under the leadership of the Communist Party, we must vigorously promote patriotism and unswervingly continue the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics, to fight for and to achieve the great revival of the Chinese nation.

近代以来的中国历史已经证明,只有社会主义才能救中国,只有中国特色社会主义才能发展中国。在社会主义中国,爱国主义与社会主义在本质上是统一的。邓小平同志曾经说过,

“有人说不爱社会主义不等于不爱国。难道祖国是抽象的吗?不爱共产党领导的社会主义新中国,爱什么呢?”

因此,在当代中国,大力弘扬爱国主义,就是要在中国共产党的领导下,坚定不移地走中国特色社会主义道路,为实现中华民族的伟大复兴而努力奋斗。

  1. so sick of such cliche, though I’m a Chinese.

    How could the communists continue to fool people in this way? When will they consider a change of strategy?

  2. I doubt that they want to change the strategy – it has served them well. But it seems to help me understand why the CCP is so afraid of Falun Gong, for example. Maybe the two organizations are ticking in similar ways.
