Great Matters of the State, Educational Tour

nanhu_red_boat

CCTV Xinwen Lianbo, June 5, 2021

The following is a newsitem from Xinwen Lianbo (CCTV evening news) on June 5. The term 国之大者 (guózhī dàzhě), coined in recent contexts by party secretary general Xi Jinping, appears to have led to some confusion, without anyone within the propaganda department or any CPC interface with the public to clarify the meaning.

The non-communist public figures, commonly referred to dangwai in Chinese politics, appear to be facing higher expectations to be faithful agents of the Communist Party of China in the pursuit of state affairs, or intensified worshippers of the CPC as it  commermorates its 100th founding anniversary.
The Upenn language blog has done some heroic explanatory work for the term guózhī dàzhě, and as I can’t find anything more convincing online, I’ve decided to translate it as great matters of the state.
Links within blockquotes added during translation.

Celebrating the 100th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of China, officials of all non-communist parties’ central committee members and public figures and representatives with no party affiliations went to Shanghai and to Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, for visits and studies.

[视频]庆祝中国共产党成立100周年 各民主党派中央负责人和无党派人士代表赴上海 浙江嘉兴参观学习
来源:央视网2021年06月05日 19:18

CCTV online news (Xinwen Lianbo): with permission from the Communist Party of China’s central committee, the Central United Front organized a trip by members of all non-communist parties’ central committee officials and public figures and representatives with no party affiliations to Shanghai and Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, so as to admire the site of the Communist Party of China’s first congress, and the Nanhu Red Boat. A symposium was also held.

央视网消息(新闻联播):经中共中央批准,中央统战部组织各民主党派中央负责人和无党派人士代表今天(6月5日)赴上海、浙江嘉兴,瞻仰中共一大会址和嘉兴南湖红船,并举行座谈会。

The one-hundred years of struggle have amply demonstrated that without the Communist Party there would be no New China, that without the Communist Party there would be no socialism with Chinese characteristics, the Chinese people wouldn’t have stood up, wouldn’t have prospered, wouldn’t have become stronger. It is hoped that non-communist democratic party public figure will always cherish “great matters of the state”, thoroughly study and implement Xi Jinping’s ideology of New Era socialism with Chinese characteristics, firmly develop party history education, always faithfully maintain the leadership of the Communist Party of China, keep to the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics, strengthen the joining of forces of party construction, and unite in the common effort of promoting the development of multi-party cooperation, so as to create a beautiful future for the Chinese people and the Chinese nation.

中国共产党百年奋斗历程充分表明,没有共产党就没有新中国,没有共产党就没有中国特色社会主义,中国人民就不可能站起来、富起来、强起来。希望各民主党派、无党派人士始终胸怀“国之大者”,深入学习贯彻习近平新时代中国特色社会主义思想,扎实开展中共党史学习教育,始终不渝坚持中国共产党的领导,走中国特色社会主义道路,加强中国特色社会主义参政党建设,协力推进多党合作事业发展,共同创造中国人民和中华民族的美好未来。

Chinese Ministry of Defense Spokesman: “China’s Friends can be found all over the World”

The following is a reaction by China’s ministry of defense spokesman Ren Guoqiang to what is said to be an article by US secretary of defense Mark Esper.

News like Ren’s statement don’t usually feature prominently in Chinese television news, but are the kind of stuff that may excite some online readers in China. A video without verbal footage, but a dramatic musical soundtrack, is also shared on Weibo.

Original My translation CCTV English
中新网9月6日电 据国防部新闻局官方微信消息,美国国防部长埃斯珀近日发表题为《美国防部已做好准备应对中国》的署名文章称,美需建设一支与中国全面抗衡的军事力量。对此,国防部新闻发言人任国强表示,这篇文章通篇充斥冷战思维与意识形态偏见,毫无根据地歪曲中国人民解放军,渲染所谓“中国军事威胁”,完全是无稽之谈。 China News Service, Sept 6. According to the ministry of defense’s official WeChat channel, US secretary of defense Esper recently published a signed article titled “US Department of Defense prepared for reacting to China”, saying that America needed to build a military force able to comprehensively contend with China. Concerning this, Ministry of Defense spokesman Ren Guoqiang said that the article was full of cold-war mentality and ideological prejudice, distorted the PLA without the slightest foundation, and exaggerated the so-called “China military threat”, which was complete nonsense. blank
有记者问:美国国防部长埃斯珀近日发表题为《美国防部已做好准备应对中国》的署名文章称,中国军队并非为国家和宪法服务,而是为中国共产党效力;为应对中国“军事威胁”,美需建设一支与中国全面抗衡的军事力量;中国军队对地区邻国采取咄咄逼人的行动,美国将加强与印太地区盟国和伙伴国的关系。中方对此作何评论? Reporter’s question: US secretary of defense Esper recently published a signed article titled “US Department of Defense prepared for reacting to China”, saying that China’s military really doesn’t serve the country and the constitution, but effectively serves the Chinese Communist Party. To respond to China’s “military threat”, America needed to build a military force able to comprehensively contend with China. China’s military took aggressive action against neighboring countries, and America would strengthen relations with allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region. What is China’s comment on this? blank
任国强表示,这篇文章通篇充斥冷战思维与意识形态偏见,毫无根据地歪曲中国人民解放军,渲染所谓“中国军事威胁”,完全是无稽之谈。该文如果不是出于对客观事实的政治偏见,最起码也是对基本常识的无知。中方对此表示坚决反对。 Ministry of Defense spokesman Ren Guoqiang said that the article was full of cold-war mentality and ideological prejudice, distorted the PLA without the slightest foundation, and exaggerated the so-called “China military threat”, which was complete nonsense. Said article was based on a policy of prejudice and lack of objectiveness and facts, and ignorant of the very fundamentals. China resolutely opposed this. Ren Guoqiang, a spokesperson for China’s Ministry of National Defense, Sunday slammed U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper’s article against the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA), asserting that any attempt to cut the flesh-and-blood ties between the Chinese army and the people is doomed to fail.
任国强指出,《中华人民共和国宪法》明确规定:社会主义制度是中华人民共和国的根本制度;中国共产党领导是中国特色社会主义最本质的特征;中华人民共和国的武装力量属于人民。中国共产党的宗旨是全心全意为人民服务,作为中国共产党缔造和领导的武装力量,中国人民解放军的宗旨也始终是全心全意为人民服务。中国人民都知道,中国人民解放军是“人民子弟兵”,人民军队为实现民族独立、人民解放作出巨大牺牲,在经济建设、应对重大自然灾害、保卫人民生命财产安全中作出突出贡献。事实证明,任何割裂中国军队和中国人民血肉联系的图谋注定是失败的。 Ren Guoqiang said that the “People’s Republic of China’s Constitution” clearly stipulated that the socialist system was the PRC’s fundamental system, that the Communist Party of China’s leadership was the most essential characteristic of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and that the PRC’s armed force belonged to the people. The Chinese Communist Party’s objective was to serve the people with heart and soul, and as the armed forces created and led by the Chinese Communist Party, the PLA’s objective also was to serve the people with heart and soul. The Chinese people all knew that the PLA was the “force of the people’s younger generation”, that the people’s troops, to achieve national independence, [the PLA] had made huge sacrifices, outstanding economic contributions, responded to major natural disasters, and outstanding contributions to safeguarding the people’s lives and property. Facts had proven that any conspiracy to cut apart the Chinese troops’ and Chinese people’s ties of flesh and blood were doomed to fail. The article had distorted the PLA’s image without any basis to play up the so-called Chinese military threat, Ren told reporters. His remarks came after Esper’s article titled “The Pentagon Is Prepared for China,” wherein he claimed that “China’s military does not serve the country or the constitution.”

Ren described the allegations as totally groundless and full of Cold-War mentality and ideological bias.

任国强强调,《中华人民共和国宪法》还明确规定:中国坚持走和平发展道路,坚持互利共赢开放战略,发展同各国的外交关系和经济、文化交流,推动构建人类命运共同体。新中国成立70年来,从未主动挑起过一场战争,从未侵占过别人的一寸土地。中国军力的增长完全是世界和平力量的增长。中国军队积极参加联合国维和、亚丁湾护航、人道主义救援等行动,努力为世界提供更多的公共安全产品。中国和中国军队维护世界和平与繁荣的积极贡献,赢得了国际社会广泛赞誉,中国的朋友遍天下。美方渲染地区紧张局势、挑拨中国与地区国家关系,这种图谋注定是痴心妄想。 Guo Renqiang also emphasized that the “People’s Republic of China’s Constitution” clearly stipulated that China upheld the path of peaceful development, a strategy of mutual benefit and openness, the development of diplomatic, economic and cultural exchanges with all countries, and the promotion of the construction of human destiny community*). During all the 70 years since its founding, New China had never provoked a war, and never invaded and occupied any length of other countries’ territory. The growth of China’s military power was the growth of global power of peace. The Chinese military actively took part in UN peacekeeping, convoying in the Gulf of Aden, humanitarian rescue and other operations, so as to provide more public security goods to the world. China’s and China military’s contributions to protecting global peace and prosperity have earned it broad international recognition. China’s friends can be found all over the world. America exaggerates regional tensions and incites disharmony in relations between China and countries in the region. This conspiracy is delusional.

Editor: Liu Pai

The Communist Party of China (CPC) and the PLA share the same mission of serving the people wholeheartedly as mentioned in China’s Constitution, Ren said.

The country’s military is deeply rooted in the people and have made great contributions to achieving national independence as well as liberation of the people in terms of economic construction, disaster relief and protecting people’s life and property, the spokesperson added.

blank The growth of China’s military power should be regarded as the empowerment of world peace as the Chinese Constitution rules that China pursues the path of peaceful development, Ren said, adding that the Chinese military has been actively participating in international peacekeeping activities.
blank The U.S. attempts to alienate China from other countries would never succeed as China’s efforts in maintaining world peace have been widely recognized by the international community, Ren noted.
blank He added that since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PLA has also been fulfilling its responsibility as the military of a major country, actively participating in international anti-COVID-19 cooperation.
blank The Chinese military will continue to make contributions to the world’s safety, peace, prosperity and inclusiveness, the spokesperson stressed.

CCTV News Anchor on “national security” legislation: “The Red Line must be inscribed in the Hearts”

Hai Xia, CCTV “Xinwen Lianbo” news anchor, July 5

Transcript

These two days our CCTV series “China emotionally touched”, with “Filled with Emotions like a Fragrant River”, led to passionate debates among netizens.

这两天央视播出的《感动中国》特别节目《情满香江》引发网友热议,

The film included a description of many motherland-loving, Hong Kong-loving people straightened their backs and defended Hong Kong‘s story.

片子里讲述了很多爱国爱港人士挺身而出守护香港的故事。

Among them, and that impressed us most deeply, there was a Hong Kong citizen at a plaza facing the “black violence” threat,

其中让我印象很深的是,有一位香港市民在商场里面对“黑暴”威胁,

responding by bringing his child and singing the national anthem aloud. His only a few year-old daughter said that someone who doesn‘t love his own country is useless.

他回应的方式是带着自己的孩子高唱国歌。他年仅几岁的女儿还说,一个人不爱自己的国家就没用了。

This little friend really must be praised. So young, she knows good from bad. Of course, this has to do with her father educating her,

真要为这位小朋友点赞,小小年纪就能明是非。这当然与父母的教育有关,

and we have also seen news today which says that Hong Kong‘s libraries have removed some “HK independence” books from the shelves which is beautifully done, but it is not enough.

今天也看到一个消息说,香港有图书馆已经将一些“港独”书籍下架,干得漂亮,但这还不够。

Many people know that some basic educational material in HK comes with “poison”, and this “poison” must be cleaned away to clean the source.

很多人都知道香港的一些教材、基础教育领域都带有“毒”,把这里的“毒”排排干净,才是真正的正本清源。

With HK security law in force, the law must genuinely take effect. Besides seriously applying the law, universal law knowledge must be taught well.

香港国安法已经落地生效,法律要真正发挥效用,除了严格执法之外,普法教育工作也一定要做好。

The red line is not only a legal red line, but must be inscribed in the hearts.

红线不仅是划在执法一线,也是划在心里。

The poison must vanish from the source, and only from there can the pernicious influence that brings calamity to HK be blocked at the roots.

源头消了毒,祸港的流毒也才能从根上堵住。
