WANG WEIGUANG: Gathering positive energy to realize China dream——Speech at the “Summit of Culture and China Dream”
  The president of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences WANG WEIGUANG

  Distinguished guests, friends:

  Good morning!

  

  Today, under the inspiration of the immense strength of China dream, our academic elites, media friends, and people from all walks of life gather together spontaneously, to study and discuss China dream. Such gathering itself reflects what Xi jinping---the Secretary-general of Chinese Communist Party—has put forward, that the China dream is the dream of the state, the nation, and after all the dream of people. It also proves that China dream is down to earth as a more powerful country and a rejuvenated nation is not only the grand goal of the Chinese nation, but also the specific dream of every Chinese person. It signifies a common prospect of 1.3 billion people and the dignity and happiness of every Chinese people. In order to realize China dream, we need to take China road, carry forward the spirit of China, gather strength in China, and conforms to the Chinese culture. Since the practice of the exploration of China dream conforms to the cultural and psychological structure of the Chinese people, the practice of the exploration of China dream should be guided under China’s mainstream ideology, encouraged by the cultural and artistic inspiration and adapted to the changes in China dream with practical power.

  Speak from both the senses of China's tradition and reality, it is of positive significance for the organizers of this summit to combine China dream with Chinese tradition and culture. First of all, seen from the traditional Chinese culture, the culture of harmony is an important content of the Chinese nation. Emphasizing tolerance, charity, core, doctrine, the culture of harmony has deeply influenced the behavior of Chinese people over the past several thousand years. In such a cultural context, it is natural for many Chinese to focus on the fate of the world, the country and the nation, and to set up individual goalto realize the harmonious development of the world, the country and the nation.

  Secondly, speak from China’s calamitous modem history,the culture of harmony is valuable experience Chinese people gained from the keenly felt pain. As an extension to China’s strive to survive, to become independent and powerful, China dream is a spontaneous strength associated with China’s miserable modem history. After the opium war, countless Chinese people had been fighting for more than a hundred year to end up the war-torn status. It is not until the new China was founded that China has fundamentally realized the national independence. However, psychological trauma caused by the invasion of imperialist powers till exist, therefore China dream is an extension to national independence.

  

  Thirdly, seen from the current situation in China, the culture of harmony is the strength for social cohesion and is the source of thought to realize China dream. Why the China dream proposed by Secretary-general Xi can gain support from the bottom of the heart of 1.3 billion Chinese people? It is because China dream transform the communist ideal and the theory of socialism with Chinese characteristics into the language people can understand, the prospects people can see and the future people can imagine. As the era and society progress, human thought has undergone earth-shaking changes. In such a network and information age, how can people understand our culture scholars if the latter still talk in arcane language? People need to imagine their future with the most popular and simple language. I have read the conference material before the summit. In this material, “Five harmonious wisdom to crack national anxiety”, a paper written by MA XIANQUAN from the standing committee of the Chinese people's political consultative conference (CPPCC) at Sanya, Hainan province, attached my attention. With innovation and simple language, based on grassroots practice, this paper let culture down to earth. Therefore it reflects the “three sharing” spirit of China dream, which is to let every Chinese to share the opportunities of a brilliant life, a dream coming true, and process and advancement in pace with the era.

  A brilliant future is only possible with dream, opportunity and effort. Faced by an important strategic opportunity period, China is closer to China dream than any other period in the history. China is more confident and more capable than any other time in history to achieve the great goal.Under the firm leadership of the CPC central committee withXiJinping as the Secretary-general, let us--a new force of the socialism with Chinese characteristics, strive together to create a more brilliant future! Thank you all!
