Zhuang Biao: My father Zhuang Zedong

Translated from the Headlines (Toutiao 头条新闻)

Author: History talk(史论)

February 10, 2013, is the Chinese New Year, a day for the reunion of thousands of families. On this day, Zhuang Zedong, a legendary figure in the table tennis industry, died in Beijing You’an Hospital due to a worsening of cancer.

In the ward, Zhuang Zedong’s son Zhuang Biao covered his father’s face with a snow-white bed sheet. Looking at his father’s body, Zhuang Biao said silently to his father in his heart: “Dad, in your life, you are worthy of Atsuko’s mother’s four-character comment on your brilliant and magnificent. You have lived up to these four words.”

On February 28, 2013, a strong wind blew in Beijing. However, there is still an endless stream of people who come to attend the funeral. In addition to colleagues in the sports world, there are many celebrities in the cultural world such as Zhao Zhongxiang, Pu Cunxin, Chen Luyu, Chen Zhe, etc., who also braved the biting cold wind to bid farewell to Zhuang Zedong, who has won three consecutive World Table Tennis Championships men’s singles. Champion hero.

Zhuang Biao will not forget that since his father fell ill, the Table Tennis and Badminton Center paid 4,000 yuan a month to hire people to take care of his father; Chemotherapy: Since 2009, the Table Tennis and Badminton Center will report to the General Administration, the Ministry of Civil Affairs, and the Ministry of Finance every year to apply for an increase in the amount of Zhuang Zedong’s treatment expenses.

During the approval process, Xu Yinsheng, Li Furong, Cai Zhenhua, and other leaders have been concerned about the implementation many times, and finally won the “unlimited treatment funding” treatment for his father. Father can look down.

At the memorial service, Zhuang Biao told the reporter who came to interview: “It is not what ordinary people can do for a person in this life. I admire my father very much. He is very handsome and never complains about others.”

One,

Zhuang Zedong has not only won the men’s singles champion of the World Table Tennis Championships three consecutive times, but he can also become a legend in the sports world of New China because he has personally experienced the Sino-US “ping pong diplomacy” that has changed the trend of the world, and has isolated the two big countries. The re-contact after more than ten years has made a huge contribution.

Zhuang Zedong was born in Yangzhou City, Jiangsu Province in 1940. His grandfather was an official of the Qing Dynasty, and his grandfather Hardong was a British Jew. In 1873, Hardong came to China and worked for the Shanghai Sassoon Company. Relying on land speculation, Hartung gradually became a real estate tycoon in Shanghai. His only legacy after his death reached 170 million U.S. dollars.

In addition to being a real estate tycoon, Hartung is also enthusiastic about charity. Because he had no children, he adopted many orphans in his old age and founded a Cangjie University.

Once, a faculty member named Zhuang Tishen in this university picked up a lottery ticket on the road, and it turned out that this lottery ticket actually won the jackpot. Hardong felt that this Zhuang Tishen was very blessed, so he married his adopted daughter Luo Fuzhen to this Zhuang Tishen.

In fact, Zhuang Tishen had already married at this time. His original wife, Lei Zhongru, had already given birth to a son and a daughter for Zhuang Tishen. The boy was Zhuang Zedong. But in that era, it was not surprising that a man had two wives, so Ha Tong didn’t mind, and instead gave Zhuang Tishen the management of the property he bought in Beijing.

In this way, Zhuang Tishen and Luo Fuzhen came to Beijing and took Lei Zhongru’s mother and son to Beijing, and the family reunited together.

Generally speaking, young masters like Zhuang Zedong who were born in wealthy families generally cannot bear hardship, but Zhuang Zedong is an exception. Because of his thin body since he was young, his father Zhuang Tishen invited two martial arts masters to Zhuang Zedong to teach him martial arts.

But Zhuang Zedong was not interested in this and was very resistant. Zhuang Tishen had no choice but to send 11-year-old Zhuang Zedong to practice table tennis instead. I didn’t think about it, but Zhuang Zedong showed his talent in table tennis, and he was out of control since then.

After practicing table tennis for less than two years, Zhuang Zedong could not find his opponent around. When he was 14 years old, his father sent him to the Beijing Children’s Palace Amateur Sports School for table tennis training. Zhuang Zedong soon became the “king” here, and basically, no one could fight him.

In 1957, Zhuang Zedong was sent to the Beijing Table Tennis Team by the sports school. Two years later, he was selected for the National Youth Table Tennis Team and began his legend.

With the best straight fast attack technique in the world, Zhuang Zedong has a rare opponent in the table tennis world and has also won the nickname of “little tiger”. Since 1959, he has set a record of more than 100 consecutive wins in domestic competitions, and no one has broken it so far.

At the 26th World Table Tennis Championships in Beijing in 1961, Zhuang Zedong entered the semifinals with Xu Yinsheng, Li Furong, and Zhang Xielin, winning the heaviest championship for the Chinese team in advance.

At that time, the leaders considered that Zhuang Zedong was the youngest of the four. If he won the championship, he might have a chance to win the championship again in future competitions and create an era to enhance the influence of Chinese table tennis in the world, so he requested Zhuang Zedong’s semi-final opponent Xu Yinsheng give the ball to Zhuang Zedong.

After learning of the leadership’s arrangement, Zhuang Zedong raised an objection.

He believes that it is not easy for an athlete to get into the top four of the World Series. It is a reward for the athlete’s years of hard training.

It would be unfair for the athletes to “let” the championship for other reasons. Even if they rely on their teammates to get the ball to win the championship, who can guarantee that when they face opponents in other countries in the future, they will definitely be better than the teammates who give the ball now. Are you sure?

Zhuang Zedong’s opinion finally convinced the leader. In the next semi-finals and finals, Zhuang Zedong relied on his true ability to win Xu Yinsheng and Li Furong. Boarded the championship podium.

Especially in the men’s singles final, Li Furong won a game against Zhuang Zedong. Zhuang Zedong didn’t panic but played steadily and pulled two sets in a row. In the end, he defeated Li Furong 2-1 and won the singles championship.

In the next two World Table Tennis Championships, Zhuang Zedong made persistent efforts and won three consecutive championships. Nieler, a British player who was contemporary with Zhuang Zedong, once said that there were only two types of athletes in the men’s table tennis world at that time, one was called Zhuang Zedong and the other was called other players.

This Nieler is not a waiter. He has long occupied the top position in British table tennis. His words also reflect Zhuang Zedong’s influence in the table tennis world from another side.

Two,

In 1959, Zhuang Zedong met Bao Huiqiao, a talented piano girl at the Vienna World Youth Gala. At that time, Bao Huiqiao, who was only 19 years old, played the song “Prelude and Fugue in B-flat Minor” at the World Youth Gala. It caused a huge sensation in Vienna, the capital of music. The melodious piano sound also moved her Zhuang Zedong of the same age. The two fell in love like this.

In 1971, Zhuang Zedong represented China in the 31st World Table Tennis Championships held in Nagoya, Japan. Before the game, no one could have imagined that in this game, Zhuang Zedong’s inadvertent move created the famous story of “small ball pushes big ball” in the history of Sino-US relations.

Many articles have said that the “small ball pushing the big ball” between China and the United States originated from the American player Cohen accidentally boarding a Chinese athlete’s car. this is not right. Zhuang Zedong has corrected this statement on different occasions:

“Cohen did not get on the wrong car, because the car that the Chinese team rode at that time had the logo of the organizing committee of the 31st World Table Tennis Championships. So Cohen, who is also an athlete, got on this car. It cannot be said that he got in the wrong car. But the Chinese team was riding in this car at that time. If the athletes in this car were from Western countries, Cohen would take this car directly to the competition venue.”

Zhuang Zedong clearly remembered that that day was April 4, 1971. After Cohen got in the car, everyone in the car was stunned, and Cohen himself was also stunned, and immediately turned around to get off the car, but at this time the car had started and the door had been closed. Cohen had to be near the door and stood facing the door, very embarrassed.

Since Cohen turned his back to the Chinese athletes in the car, everyone clearly saw the words “U.S.A” printed on the back of his sweatshirt. Everyone, look at me, I look at you, no one said anything. At that time, Zhuang Zedong was not sitting near the door, but sitting at the back of the car.

Zhuang Zedong later recalled that the ideological struggle in his mind was fierce at the time. At that time, China and the United States were hostile countries. According to regulations, Chinese athletes were not allowed to contact Americans without authorization. This was discipline.

But before going abroad this time, Premier Zhou conveyed to everyone the instruction of “Friendship first, competition second”, asking everyone to make friends with athletes from all over the world and reflect the new spirit of the Chinese people on the sports field.

Zhuang Zedong thought: “China is a country of courtesy and justice. People have already come up. If you say hello to different people, let them stand awkwardly at the door, isn’t it?”

In Zhuang Zedong’s heart, he struggled back and forth, without speaking for a while. Later, he remembered that in the quotations of Chairman Mao he recited every day, he said: “We must distinguish the American people from their government, and the people who decide policies in the American government from the ordinary workers below.”

The athlete in front of him is just an ordinary American, how can he ignore them? “

Zhuang Zedong thought for a full 10 minutes, and finally took out the “little tiger” Yong who played table tennis, taking a historic step. He lowered his head and flipped through the travel bag he brought with him and found a pair of Hangzhou brocades that was more than one meter long and gave it to Cohen.

Zhuang Zedong clearly remembered that when he walked toward the Americans with this brocade, his teammates stopped one after another: “Xiao Zhuang, don’t make trouble, ignore him!” Zhuang Zedong smiled and replied, “It doesn’t matter. , He is just an athlete.”

Zhuang Zedong pulled up an interpreter, approached the American, and said to the American: “The American government is not friendly to China, but the American people are always friendly to the Chinese people. To express the friendship of the Chinese people to American athletes, I give you a gift. , Souvenir. “

Cohen stayed for a while, then grinned. He knew Zhuang Zedong. As a table tennis player at the time, no matter which country you came from, there was almost no one who didn’t know Zhuang Zedong.

Since he got into the car, no one paid attention to him. Now the Chinese world champion actually came up to talk to him and gave him gifts. Why not make him happy! Cohen thanked him incoherently and wished the Chinese athletes success in the competition.

Five minutes later, the car arrived at the gymnasium, and Cohen got out of the car with the Chinese athletes. But it was these short five minutes that opened the door to the development of Sino-US relations.

In the evening, American coaches and athletes also came to the Chinese athletes’ residence with gifts to pay a return visit and expressed their thoughts of visiting China for competitions. The major Japanese newspapers also reported the contact between the athletes of the two countries with the headline “China and the United States are close” the next day.

The Chinese delegation also reported to the country that the American table tennis team wanted to visit China, and it was soon approved by Chairman Mao himself. The door to Sino-US relations was thus opened. Subsequently, US Secretary of State Kissinger and US President Nixon also visited China, and the two major powers finally officially established diplomatic relations on January 1, 1979.

After Zhuang Zedong returned to China, he was praised by Chairman Mao and Premier Zhou. Whenever he thinks of this, Zhuang Zedong is very emotional. He said:

“The establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States was the result of the prevailing international situation at the time and the common needs of both China and the United States. Kissinger once said to me thank me when he visited China, saying that he would not come to China so quickly without me, and I replied He said, “You can come to China as a result of the joint efforts of the Chinese people, Chinese leaders, and the US government.” Kissinger immediately agreed: “You are very good at saying this, and I am very happy.”

Three,

Although Zhuang Zedong played table tennis well, he failed to manage his marriage with Bao Huiqiao. In 1985, their marriage came to an end. Both children were sentenced to Bao Huiqiao, and Zhuang Zedong gave 70 yuan from his monthly salary for support.

What Zhuang Zedong didn’t expect was that after his marriage broke up, a Japanese female fan unexpectedly found him as a coach at the Beijing Children’s Palace and told him that he would not marry him!

It was also at the World Table Tennis Championships in Japan that a girl named Atsuko Sasaki became a die-hard fan of Zhuang Zedong.

Sasaki Atsuko

Atsuko Sasaki was born in China and speaks fluent Chinese. In 1967, his family moved back to Japan. During school, Atsuko Sasaki loved playing table tennis very much and especially wanted to meet the idol Zhuang Zedong.

Atsuko’s home is in Shimane Prefecture, Japan, far away from Nagoya, where social group competitions are held, but Atsuko still took an eight-hour train ride to Nagoya.

But at the door of the hotel where the Chinese team was staying, security stopped Atsuko from entering. After Atsuko’s stalking, the security found the leader of the Chinese team and said that there was a Japanese girl who wanted to see Zhuang Zedong and couldn’t drive away. The leader asked Zhuang Zedong to meet the Japanese girl.

Zhuang Zedong and Dunzi talked for ten minutes, then went back to training. However, he gave Atsuko a brooch as a gift.

In the next few days, Atsuko followed the Chinese team every day to watch Zhuang Zedong’s game. Zhuang Zedong won the championship, Atsuko jumped up in the audience with joy, as if he was even happier than Zhuang Zedong who won the championship.

Before the Chinese team returned to China, Dunzi wrote a long letter to Zhuang Zedong, blushing, and handed the letter to Zhuang Zedong. No one knows the content of the letter, but at that time Zhuang Zedong was already married, and Atsuko’s letter was at best only expressing a fan’s admiration and love for idols.

Later, Atsuko was sent to work in Shanghai, which created an opportunity for her to meet Zhuang Zedong.

After Zhuang Zedong’s divorce, Dunzi found out that his idol is now a table tennis coach in Beijing Children’s Palace. He also knew that Zhuang Zedong was divorced, so he went to the door to comfort the man.

After Zhuang Zedong saw Atsuko, he actually called her name in one sip, which made Atsuko very touched: After so many years, he has not forgotten himself!

Since then, Atsuko often went to chat with Zhuang Zedong.

On the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival, the two met for tea, and Zhuang Zedong gave Atsuko a gift: a book he just published, called Chuang and Chuang. Atsuko gave Zhuang Zedong calligraphy of a Tang poem written in his own hand. There are two sentences on it that read: “Mom’s future has no confidant, no one in the world knows the emperor”.

The two smiled at each other, and their love germinated in this smile.

After a period of communication, the two quickly reached the point of discussing marriage. But because of Zhuang Zedong’s special status, according to the regulations at the time, he could not marry a foreigner!

In order to get married, Zhuang Zedong kept looking for leaders to report the situation. Later, it was approved by Deng Xiaoping. The two people got married, but the premise is: Atsuko must give up his Japanese nationality and become a Chinese nationality.

In October 1987, Atsuko signed a declaration of voluntary naturalization of Chinese nationality and gave up his high salary in Japan. We must know that Atsuko’s monthly salary was equivalent to RMB 40,000, which was nearly a hundred times the annual income of ordinary people!

After getting married, Atsuko stayed with Zhuang Zedong until he died of illness. In their home, Zhuang Zedong is outside and Dunzi is inside. Atsuko said: Mr. Zhuang is the sun and I am the moon. The moon cannot emit light without the sun.

Later, Zhuang Zedong was transferred to the education department. In 1994, he was named a special-grade teacher. During the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, Zhuang Zedong took out all his savings and donated 300,000 yuan to Wenchuan.

You must know that Zhuang Zedong’s salary was not high at the time, and Atsuko was just a housewife, without a penny of income. The 300,000 were saved by Zhuang Zedong by selling words and frugal. For him, it was not a small one. number.

In 2008, Zhuang Zedong was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Atsuko stayed in front of the bed and waited for her husband until Zhuang Zedong passed away.

After Zhuang Zedong died, he was buried in Changping, Beijing. On the back of his tombstone, there is an epitaph written by Atsuko for her husband: “Here lies a person who pushes the earth with a small ball”.

After Zhuang Zedong’s death, Atsuko’s brothers and sisters took her to Japan, but Atsuko returned to China several times a year to worship her husband. In addition, at the start of the “Zhuang Zedong Cup” National Children’s Table Tennis Invitational Tournament every year, Atsuko will return to China to represent Zhuang Zedong at the opening ceremony. She said that standing on the field, she seemed to have seen her husband’s heroic posture on the field again.

Four,

After Zhuang Zedong divorced Bao Huiqiao, his son Zhuang Biao refused to forgive his father. But later under Atsuko’s reconciliation, the father and son reconciled as before. After Zhuang Zedong’s death, Zhuang Biao told reporters that he did not hate his father. He would never forget the time he played Go with him in the hospital ward when he was hospitalized.

Zhuang Biao was most pleased that when his father established a table tennis club in 2002, he suggested to his father: Invite his comrades-in-arms to cut the ribbon.

Zhuang Biao remembered that after he said this, his father was silent for a long time, and then he sent out invitations to his former comrades in arms such as Xu Yinsheng and Li Furong.

On December 20, 2002, Xu Yinsheng and Li Furong appeared at the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the Zhuang Zedong Table Tennis Club. Zhuang Biao saw tears in his father’s eyes: he knew that his proposal had broken a knot of his father’s heart.

Regardless, Zhuang Biao has always been proud of his father. He will never forget what Xiong Xianghui, the assistant to Premier Zhou Enlai, said when he touched his head when he came home to visit his father on behalf of the Premier when he was young:

“Your father Zhuang Zedong’s contribution to China’s table tennis industry no longer needs to be proven in any other way. His contribution to table tennis diplomacy is as big as you say he is.”

Chen Jin: Mao Zedong and the early leadership of the Chinese Communist Party

Translated from the Headlines (Toutiao 头条新闻)

Author: Kunlun Research Institute(昆仑策研究院)

Regarding the study of party history, General Secretary Xi Jinping proposed to “learn history wisely” at this party history study and education mobilization meeting. What’s the reason? My experience is to understand three principles: why Marxism works, why the Communist Party of China can, and why socialism with Chinese characteristics is good. “Study on history to increase credibility” is to increase confidence in China’s roads and strengthen the “four self-confidence.” “Learning history and advocating virtue” is to inherit and carry forward the great spirit and red gene accumulated by the Communist Party of China in its 100-year history. “Learning history and doing what you do” means practicing, doing practical things, and opening a new game.

The general secretary’s lecture on party history should play the role of these four aspects. I think that the early Chinese Communists, why they set off, how they set off, and what kind of mental outlook they have, these can probably bring some inspiration to comprehend these four words of General Secretary Xi Jinping.

Let me talk about four points: 1. The founding of the party 100 years ago was not the wish of one person, a dozen or dozens of people, but a collective choice of advanced intellectuals. 2. Participating in the founding of the party, including the group of people who joined the party before the failure of the Great Revolution in 1927, their compositional characteristics, and spiritual outlook. 3. The early leadership of the Communist Party of China was immature and unstable. Why was it immature and unstable? 4. Why did Mao Zedong stand out? Why did history and people choose Mao Zedong? The combination of these four issues is called Mao Zedong and the early leadership of the Chinese Communist Party.

  1. Grasp the general trend: The establishment of the Communist Party of China is the common choice of advanced intellectuals

The number of members of early organizations in various places before the University is now clearly 58. There are 12 representatives and 13 people who have participated in the first major. The newly published “A Brief History of the Communist Party of China” is expressed by first listing the names of the 12 representatives, and then adding: “Bao Hui Seng was dispatched by Chen Duxiu to attend the meeting.” This is narrative and objective. They represented 58 party members across the country and established the Chinese Communist Party.

The establishment of the Communist Party of China is the result of advanced intellectuals who have mastered the general trend. The general trend at that time had three aspects. One is that the May Fourth Movement liberated people’s minds, and one can choose one of the various theoretical thoughts introduced to save China; the second is that the October Revolution brought Marxism-Leninism to the Chinese, which made some advanced intellectuals see it. A new way to save the country; third, after the First World War, the capitalist countries fell into depression, and the Paris Peace Conference ignored China’s claims for Shandong’s sovereignty, which made people very disappointed and even disgusted with Western capitalist powers.

This is the general trend of choosing Marxism-Leninism.

Why is it said that 58 people’s choices are considered to have grasped the general trend? Truth has always been grasped by a few people first, compared in practice, and gradually gained everyone’s approval. This is a rule.

In fact, there are more than 58 people who believe in Marxism-Leninism. Some people who are not among the 58 people should also be regarded as party-building groups. For example, Cai Hesen, who first proposed the name of the party as the “Communist Party of China”. In July 1920, Cai Hesen put forward at a conference in France: “to formally establish a Communist Party of China blatantly”. In August of this year, he wrote to Mao Zedong, expressing this proposition again. At that time, Chen Duxiu was preparing to establish an early Communist Party organization in Shanghai. Chen Duxiu also thought about what our party is called. Since we pursue socialism, we will call it the “Social Communist Party.” Therefore, although Cai Hesen did not participate in the first major, he was not on the list of 58 people, nor was he in the early Communist Party organizations in Changsha. But his status is comparable to that of 58 people.

For another example, Yun Daiying is not among 58 people. He formed a “Polish Society” in the summer of 1920, which is actually the Bolshevik Party.

Sichuan was relatively closed at the time. Wu Yuzhang and Yang Angong (brother Yang Shangkun) did not know that the Chinese Communist Party had been established at that time. They established the Chinese Youth Communist Party and wrote a report to Communist International, explaining the establishment of the Chinese Youth Communist Party and its organizational structure. They directly contacted Communist International, and later heard that the Chinese Communist Party had been established and participated in the Communist International. So they immediately disbanded the Chinese Youth Communist Party and then joined the Chinese Communist Party.

Zhang Tailei, who belonged to 58 people, participated in the early organization led by Li Dazhao in Beijing, was appointed by Li Dazhao to Russia, and finally served as the head of the China Section of the Communist International Far East Bureau. He participated in the third congress of the Communist International and spoke at the congress and talked about the construction of the Chinese Communist Party, which was not yet established at that time. He attended the conference in June 1921, and our party was only established on July 23, 1921. His speech has been included in “The Collected Works of Zhang Tailei”, and the content of his speech is very high.

Generally speaking, it is a general trend for the advanced elements to choose Marxism, socialism, and communism.

  1. The characteristics and spiritual outlook of the early Chinese Communists

The early members of the party organizations in various places before the first university can be called party-building groups, and those who joined the Chinese Communist Party before the failure of the great revolution after the first university can be called the early Chinese Communists. These two groups of people can be collectively referred to as the early Chinese Communists.

What are the characteristics of the early Chinese Communists? There are three major characteristics, and these three characteristics are doomed to our party’s vitality, creativity, and spiritual outlook.

(1) Intellectual background

The 58 first batch of party members were basically all intellectuals, all intellectuals. This is the commonality of Marxist parties. Because Marxism, as an advanced concept, was first disseminated among intellectuals and accepted by intellectuals. Intellectuals mastered this ideological weapon before mobilizing workers and peasants. And intellectuals want to create a party, who does it represent? Nature is what Marxism says, representing the proletariat. Later, the Communist Party of China made great creativity based on the national conditions of China’s semi-colonial and semi-feudal society. It represented, in addition to the working class, farmers, etc., representing the interests of the overwhelming majority of the people and the interests of the Chinese nation.

The early Chinese Communists had three characteristics:

  1. The choice of belief is based on the comparison of various theoretical trends, and they have theoretical and political awareness of their beliefs.

Let’s take a look at the process by which Mao Zedong chose the Communist Party, or he confirmed his belief in Marxism and Communism. On New Year’s Day in 1921, at the Changsha Xinmin Society membership meeting, more than 20 people, Mao Zedong asked everyone to discuss the direction of Xinmin Society, saying that we should choose our beliefs, what to choose, we discuss and express our own opinions. Mao Zedong concluded: There are five choices before us: social policy, social democracy of the Second International, communism of Lenin’s radical approach, Russell’s moderate communism, and anarchism. After repeated comparative studies, we feel that the radical method of communism has predictable effects, and we can adopt it. Moreover, he also believes that some of the other methods, approaches, and doctrines make sense in theory, but they cannot be done in practice. Mao Zedong also told everyone at that time that the purpose of the Xinmin Society was changed to “transform China and the world.”

Mao Zedong also wrote to Cai Hesen and talked about it: Our choice of communism does not mean that we should not go on a good road, but that we have to take this road. It is a kind of “change plan” when there is no way to go. It means that you can only go this way.

This is the ideological and political consciousness of intellectuals for party building. It can be said that this generation has to think about whether Marxism is good, whether socialism is good, whether the Communist Party can succeed, whether there is a future, or not, it is only after repeated thinking to make a choice. Most people have faith from the heart, perseverance to the original mission, and perseverance. According to statistics, out of 58 people, only 8 people were expelled or seceded from the party organization and defected to the enemy.

  1. Most of them have cultural and artistic temperament, and it is easy to transform their revolutionary will and political beliefs into a kind of cultural self-confidence, express it, and inspire people.

This is a rare feature of ordinary political parties. There were many possibilities or ways for the early Chinese Communists to transform their beliefs into cultural self-confidence.

Chen Duxiu and Li Dazhao are both cultural masters and propagandists. Chen Duxiu studies philology, and he has a relatively deep knowledge of the issue of “primary school”. Li Dazhao was a law student. He wrote well and wrote a lot of old-style poems. After the May 4th Movement, he wrote new-style poems, leaving 8 new poems. There are many other writers of poetry and prose, like Qu Qiubai, who is a writer and translator, and his seals are very good. What effect does this cultural temperament have on his beliefs?

Take the example of Qu Qiubai. He was the first to translate the Internationale. When he died, the enemy drove him to the hillside. He found a special place and said, “This place is very good.” He also said that there is a big rest in life. Small breaks, I used to be busy with revolutions and seldom take big breaks. Now I can take a big break and then calmly face the executioner. This kind of belief, this kind of state, this kind of spiritual atmosphere, I think it is the self-confidence in political beliefs brought by the cultural temperament of this generation of Communists. That sense of sublime is the calmness and calmness that has already set aside life and death in front of death, and behind it is the firmness of conviction. Therefore, Mao Zedong said that Fang Zhimin and Qu Qiubai “satisfied their will with their bodies is not also great”.

Chen Yi wrote novels in his early days and poetry later. When Meiling was besieged, I wrote: What is the meaning of decapitation today? It is difficult to start a business. This time I went to the Ministry of Recruitment at Quantai and cut Yan Luo with a hundred thousand banners. I’m going to be decapitated today, what do you think? Entrepreneurship is difficult. After all the battles, many people have died, and I am going to die. Although I am going to die, I have to go to Quantai (accordingly to be the junction of the underworld and the sun) and gather the subordinates who died before me. In hell, I have to rebel against the Yama King and have a revolution. He conveyed his beliefs and ideas through poetry.

Needless to say, Mao Zedong, has been a poet all his life. The more adversity and crisis, the better his poetic sentiment and the better he wrote. The poems written in the Long March are all classics.

Zhou Enlai, although he did not write a lot of poems, should not underestimate Zhou Enlai’s cultural awareness and cultural self-confidence. When he was young, he wrote new poems, and there are also some old-style poems, such as the familiar “Da Jiang Ge, turn back east”, etc. He wrote new poems around the May Fourth Movement, and the Central Literature Research Office also published an anthology of Zhou Enlai’s youth. Very long new poem. Even in his later years, in the 1960s, he told his nephew that I was old and that I would retire sooner or later. After I retired, I would write a novel, and I thought about the topic. He said that Ba Jin had written a novel called “Home”, which was very famous. He wanted to write a novel called “The House”, so he wrote about their Zhou family. Zhou Enlai’s cultural atmosphere in his heart is permeated with the firm beliefs and profound rational thinking of the Communists.

It can be understood that the early Communists were indeed armed by advanced culture. Therefore, they will not be discouraged at a critical time, at a time of twists and turns.

  1. The big waves wash the sand.

Intellectuals are born with theories and beliefs, but after all, they must be combined with practice, with industry and peasants, in order to mature, fight to the end, and have a future. Therefore, going all the way, there will be big waves washing the sand.

The early communists had three situations.

The first type of person is the mainstream. They have withstood the test and walked to the new China, or fell down and sacrificed during the journey. This is the mainstream.

The second type, part of the party left the party. At the climax of the Great Revolution, there were 58,000 party members. Later, after the failure of the Great Revolution, only more than 10,000 people were left. Many of them were killed by the Kuomintang. Where did the others go? Quit the party. But many people leave the party instead of opposing the party. In terms of ideology and theory, even in terms of conviction, he still adheres to Marxist theory and does progressive things and work, including some famous writers and theorists. For example, Li Da, Guo Moruo, and Mao Dun are still promoting advanced culture.

The third group of people went to the opposite side and set off from the “red boat”, but jumped off the boat halfway through. After jumping, they had to use an ax to gouge the Communist Party ship, including Chen Gongbo, Zhou Fohai, and Zhang Guotao. This is a very small number.

(2) Most of them are from middle-class families

Except for a few, most of them are in the middle family. Generally speaking, they have the urge and ability to go up, and after a struggle, they will have a better future. But their impulse and ability changed the direction, and they chose Marxism. Joining the Communist Party of China is not to seek a personal way out, but to change the destiny of the country, nation, and people. The original mission is clear. Moreover, after choosing communism, a special concept of treating family and property has basically formed.

For example, Zhang Tailei is a graduate of Tianjin Beiyang University. His diploma was printed, but he didn’t ask for it. So far, Zhang Tailei’s diploma is still placed in Tianjin University as their treasure of the town hall. At that time, after the graduates of Peiyang University who studied law came out, it was terrible to find a job or the future, and he didn’t want it.

Peng Pai came from a large family. At that time, there was a saying that crows could not fly in the Peng family’s fields. The crows flew in the sky. They had to take a break in the middle of crossing the Peng family’s fields. This is a metaphor. But he burned Tian Qi.

This shows that they are not participating in the Communist Party of China for their own way out, which is very important. They generally have relatively high moral standards, have lofty pursuits, and have an unusual state of mind.

For example, Mao Zedong, when he was young, once visited a classmate’s house as a guest. That classmate called his servant in front of him and said: I’m here as a guest today, and you went to the street to buy a few catties of meat and gave a careful account. Mao Zedong no longer interacts with this classmate. How can he think about doing these things? What he thinks about is society, country, nation, people, and the world. The purpose of the Xinmin Society was to “strengthen character and improve people’s minds and customs”, and later Mao Zedong changed it to “transform China and the world.”

From this, we can understand why Mao Zedong was able to write the “old three articles” during the Yan’an period, proposing to be a moral person, a noble person, a pure person, and a person free from low-level tastes.

This sense of morality brings two benefits: one is self-sacrifice, to be able to give oneself for others and for the collective. The second is the formation of a special bond between comrades.

What is gay relationship? Let me give you an example. For example, Qu Qiubai went to the Soviet Union as a journalist in 1920 and wrote two books, “The Hungry Country’s Journey” and “The History of the Red Capital.” When he was in the Soviet Union, he saw material tensions and famines everywhere in the country, so he had a gold watch and donated it to the Soviet government. During the interview in Soviet Russia, he couldn’t live without a watch, and the Soviet government gave him a pocket watch made of steel in return. Qu Qiubai took this pocket watch to work.

In 1931, Mao Dun (Shen Yanbing)’s younger brother Shen Zemin returned from the Soviet Union and was elected as a member of the Central Committee. The Central Committee asked him to go to Hubei, Henan, and Anhui as the provincial party secretary. When he left, Qu Qiubai and Yang Zhihua went to see him and gave him this pocket watch. To Shen Zemin, the reason is: you may have to command a battle when you go to the Soviet area, and you need a pocket watch.

Shen Zemin brought his pocket watch to Hubei, Henan, and Anhui. He commanded the Red Twenty-Five Army and fought several battles. One of the battles had conflicts with military cadres Xu Haidong and others, and disagreements. Finally, he followed Shen Zemin’s opinion. It turned out that Shen Zemin’s plan was wrong. Yes, lost the battle. Later, he took the initiative to find Xu Haidong to admit his mistake.

When I left, I saw that Xu Haidong’s watch was gone, and I asked: Where’s your watch? Xu Haidong said he accidentally broke it. Shen Zemin said that my health is not good and I need to recuperate for a period of time. You can’t live without a watch in the battle ahead, so I gave my pocket watch to Xu Haidong. Xu Haidong took this pocket watch to fight in Hubei, Henan, and Anhui, leading the Long March of the Red Twenty-Five Army until the War of Resistance.

In 1939, Xu Haidong served as the brigade commander of the 115th Division, and the central government sent him to the New Fourth Army in northern Jiangsu as deputy commander of the Jiangbei Command and commander of the fourth detachment. Before leaving, he went to see Peng Dehuai and gave this pocket watch to Peng Dehuai as a souvenir. He also said that Shen Zemin gave me this pocket watch, and Shen Zemin said that Qu Qiubai gave it to him. At that time, Shen Zemin had already passed away.

Peng Dehuai used this pocket watch to command the Hundred Regiment Wars and so on. In 1946, Xinjiang released a group of Communists, 128 of them returned to Yan’an. Peng Dehuai heard that there was Qu Qiubai’s wife Yang Zhihua, and thought that the earliest owner of this pocket watch was Qu Qiubai, so he found Yang Zhihua and returned the pocket watch to Zhao. In the end, the pocket watch returned to its original owner, but the earliest owner Qu Qiubai had already sacrificed. This pocket watch is now kept in the National Museum.

This is a gay relationship. Even if we have an argument at work, it doesn’t matter, but the relationship is strong. And the way to express feelings at that time was to give the most precious and most needed things to the other party. This is the feelings of that generation, their concept of property. This can be a good topic for sociological research.

(3) Young people, full of vigor, make the party full of vitality and have strong vitality from the beginning.

The group of people who founded the party 100 years ago, except for a very few who belonged to the post-80s at that time, were basically post-90s. The majority were post-95s and post-00s. There are 19-year-old students who participate in the first degree. These are the people who founded the Chinese Communist Party 100 years ago. Most of the people who joined the Chinese Communist Party in the early days were also young people. So the Chinese Communist Party is a young party. It is almost difficult for young people to reproduce the image of the early Chinese Communist Party, because that generation basically accepted the spiritual baptism of the May Fourth New Culture Movement.

The young Chinese Communists are indeed doing great things. From the perspective of age structure, before the failure of the Great Revolution, with the exception of Chen Duxiu, most of the leaders working in the central government were people in their twenties and thirties. Therefore, Chen Duxiu’s nickname in the party at that time was “old man.”

After the failure of the Great Revolution, it was still young people who worked in the central leadership. Qu Qiubai and Li Lisan successively presided over the work and became the top leaders. Qu Qiubai was 28 years old. Li Lisan was 29 years old when he presided over the work of the Central Committee. Bogu was promoted to the chief of the party when he was 24 years old.

Also, Ren Bishi was 23 when he entered the Politburo, and he became a member of the Politburo Standing Committee at the age of 24. Deng Xiaoping went to Guangxi to lead the uprising at the age of 25, and Chen Yun was 29 when he joined Politburo as a member of the Standing Committee. The commanders and division commanders of the Red Army who commanded the fighting in the base areas were mostly people in their 20s, like Xiao Hua, who were less than 20 years old. The Communist Party of China has created such a prosperous situation in the Central Soviet Area and its base areas. The development of the Red Army has also reached a climax. The person in charge of the work of the Central Committee is 24 years old, how young!

Young people are more optimistic about problems. They look forward and focus on the future. They dare to do, assume, and express opinions when encountering major events. Dare to think and do, full of vitality, full of passion, this is a very important political advantage of the Chinese Communist Party in the early days.

But there are also problems. For example, in Shanghai’s temporary central government, why didn’t Mao Zedong’s correct set of things go in? As soon as he arrived in the Central Soviet Area, Mao Zedong was squeezed out. The first is that the ideological line is different. Mao Zedong seeks truth from facts, and those people think they have theories. They did have more theories than Mao Zedong and had more contact with the Communist International, so they wanted to try their skills in leadership positions, and felt that what Mao Zedong could do in the Central Soviet Area, they might do better. A group of people squeezed Mao Zedong aside. There were three groups of people from before and after. After the temporary Central Committee moved in, they simply deprived Mao Zedong of military power.

Bogu had a memory in Yan’an in 1945 and sincerely said that he was a leader. He said: After the Shanghai Central Committee was destroyed, the old Politburo members appointed me as the temporary head of the Central Committee. When I was appointed to do this work, I did not feel that I could not lead the entire party. On the contrary, I was arrogant. I look down on anyone and don’t ask anyone for advice. I feel that I’m more intelligent than anyone. I have developed into a self-use, unwilling to self-criticize, and unwilling to listen to criticism. After the temporary Central Committee arrived in the Central Soviet Area, everyone still let me be the number one leader. I was just a formality. Tweetup and tweet, and said: please come to other comrades, other comrades said, it is better for you to come, I said: OK, that’s me.

  1. Why is the early central leadership immature?

The 100 years of our party’s journey have indeed been tortuous and difficult, and the leadership has also gone from immature to mature.

Today, more than 91 million party members, such a large party, are very mature from system to theory, especially the formation of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core. It must be cherished and truly “two safeguards.”

In the early days of the Chinese Communist Party, it was inevitable that young people were led by young people with immature characteristics. They quarreled and explored. When it comes to the choice of the central leadership, if it doesn’t work, it will be replaced by another person, which changes frequently.

So Deng Xiaoping later said: “Before the Zunyi Conference, our party had not formed a mature Party Central Committee. From Chen Duxiu, Qu Qiubai, Li Lisan, and Wang Ming, there was no capable Party Central Committee.” Immature and incapable, this is Deng Xiaoping. An evaluation of the early central leadership. Why do you say that?

First, it is not organizationally independent. The Communist Party of China is a branch of the Communist International, and major decisions must be approved or recognized by the Communist International. This is separated from the reality of the Chinese revolution, and some leaders have copied the Soviet revolutionary path and experience. Therefore, Mao Zedong said in 1930 that the Chinese revolution depends on Chinese comrades who understand the situation in China, referring to the situation of non-independence in the organization.

Second, it is theoretically immature. At that time, the whole party had not yet formed the theoretical consciousness of Sinicization of Marxism, nor had it formed a Sinicized Marxist theory. This is why Mao Zedong’s sinicization was criticized during the period of the Central Soviet Area.

Third, the ability is not adaptable. The central leadership is unstable. In the weak hour, the enemy is strong, there are many accidents and many crises. Leadership emerged precisely during the crisis. In a crisis, it is very important to see whether a leader is capable and immature.

The Communists at that time did not take their reputation and status very seriously. This was the mind of that generation. Before July 1927, Chen Duxiu was a veritable leader in the party, but after Chen Duxiu left his post, until 1943, strictly speaking, in the sixteen years, except for the election of a nominal general secretary Xiang Zhongfa, Later, it rebelled, and our party did not form a formal chairman or general secretary appointed through strict organizational procedures. In actual work, people who hold top positions do not have the titles of general secretary or chairman. Sometimes they use the title of general responsibility, and some do not even have the title of general responsibility, such as Qu Qiubai and Li Lisan. Zhou Enlai, has never been a leader, nor has he been in charge of the chief, but for a long time, the actual work of the Central Committee was that he had been presiding over it. Including Mao Zedong, after the Zunyi Conference, Mao Zedong entered the leadership of the party, and in fact, established Mao Zedong’s leadership position within the party and the Red Army. The nominal ranking is not the first, but only one of several standing committee members. He has been working for eight years as a top leader, and he does not have the name of the chairman or general secretary. It was not until 1943 that the Central Committee officially met to confirm Mao Zedong as Chairman of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee and Chairman of the Secretariat of the Central Committee.

Therefore, the early leaders did not take personal reputation and status very seriously. Deng Xiaoping said in his later years: We did not care about status at that time, and did not have the concept of status. For example, in France, Zhao Shiyan had a higher status than Zhou Enlai, and Zhou Enlai had a higher status than Chen Yannian, but after returning to China, Chen Yannian’s position surpassed Zhao Shiyan and Zhou Enlai. Chen Yannian is indeed capable. He opposed his father Chen Duxiu, but he sacrificed too early. After Zhao Shiyan returned to China, his work was under their leadership, and he didn’t care about his status, he was doing the revolution.

  1. Why did the party choose Mao Zedong?

If we compare Mao Zedong’s five top leaders before, we will find that they are all difficult to direct the war. Chen Duxiu, Qu Qiubai, Li Lisan, Bo Gu, and Zhang Wentian have high theoretical levels and low policy levels, but military leaders are not good at them. In the revolutionary war years, for the party to survive, it needs revolutionaries, politicians, and theorists, but it also needs a good military commander. If the military commander cannot be in the central leadership, there is a problem.

Why was Mao Zedong chosen? First of all, because he is a good military commander, a genius military strategist. The Zunyi meeting came back because of the need for him in the military. The issue of the political line was not resolved at that time. After the Zunyi Conference, in the early days of northern Shaanxi, some comrades in the party called him “Mao Marshal”.

At the Sixth Plenary Session of the Sixth Central Committee in 1938, Wang Jiaxiang, who returned from the Soviet Union, conveyed the opinions of the Communist International, saying that the Communist Party of China should lead Mao Zedong to solve the problem, and the Communist International supported Mao Zedong as the political leader. Mao Zedong went from being a military leader to a political leader justifiably.

Finally, through the Yan’an rectification movement, Mao Zedong became the theoretical leader.

From military, political, and theoretical perspectives, Mao Zedong completed the process of being selected as a leader by history.

Among them, theoretical maturity is very important. Because the Communist Party of China is a party armed with Marxism. Mao Zedong published “Strategic Issues in the Chinese Revolutionary War” and “On Protracted War” in the military, published “On Contradiction” and “On Practice” in Philosophy, and published “On New Democracy” and “The Communists” in politics. “Speech at the Yan’an Forum on Literature and Art”, etc., and “Financial and Economic Issues in the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningbo Border Region” in the economic field. In this way, philosophy, politics, economy, culture, military, etc. As soon as his masterpiece was written, the whole party awakened and accepted the baptism in thought. Of course, people will feel in their hearts that only Mao Zedong can become the leader of our Chinese Communist Party. This was repeated by other leaders of the party at that time.

For example, Wu Yuzhang said that the publication of “On the Protracted War” enabled Mao Zedong to win the heartfelt praise and even admiration of all party comrades, thus finally establishing an irreplaceable leadership position and lofty prestige in the party. Mao Zedong’s leadership position was not very consolidated before this. The dogmatists believed that Mao Zedong’s Marxist-Leninist theory was not well-trained and was not convinced. With the publication of “On the Protracted War”, Mao Zedong conquered the hearts of all party comrades, especially senior cadres, with his skillful application of Marxist philosophy and thorough analysis of the war against Japan. The whole party felt that the tortuous history of more than ten years was finally tempered and screened. This kind of emotional recognition and support of Mao Zedong’s leadership status is not the same as general organizational arrangements.

The party finally chose Mao Zedong!
