We are different from Germany because we are completely atheist, while Germany was originally a Catholic and Christian country. Hitler was only half atheist. Hitler also believed that ordinary people had low intelligence, so the leaders should decide. Although German people also worshiped Hitler very much at that time, Germany is not like China. China has a long-standing tradition of worshiping “saints ” extensively. Our Chinese society has always worshiped “saints ” because we do not worship any gods. If you worship a god, it is impossible to worship people unless you recognize who is the representative of the gods, just like some countries in the Middle East. And once you have admitted who is a saint, of course you have to let him lead you instead of you supervising and selecting him. This is the basis of our democratic centralism.
So, in the end, only China, not Germany, is the reliable force against Western parliamentary democracy. There was a Hitler dictatorship in Germany, but it may be just a momentary historical misunderstanding.
Having said that, you may be able to understand why we have recently made a decision to further promote atheism. If Western theism is allowed to come to China to hollow out us, or if the Chinese people are allowed to listen to and follow God, who else can honestly listen to and follow us? If the common people do not believe that Comrade Jintao is a qualified leader but ask him a question, supervise him, or if the members of the church question why we should go to the church to lead God, can our party still lead China? !
Germany’s efforts to become the “King of the Earth” failed. In the final analysis, it is because history has not given them this historical mission. But the three experiences of Germany back then are what we should learn when we complete our historical mission and realize the national rejuvenation. This is to firmly grasp the issue of the living space of the nation, firmly grasp the leadership of the ruling party, firmly grasp the general direction of being the “king of the earth”, and firmly hold on to these three issues.
Now I want to talk about these three issues.
The first is to focus on the issue of living space, which is the biggest focus of our national rejuvenation. In my last speech, I mentioned that fighting for basic survival resources (including land and oceans) is the root of most wars in history. There will be changes in this information age, but there will be no essential changes.
Our per capita resources are much less than in Germany back then. Coupled with the deteriorating effects of economic development and the rapid deterioration of the climate in the past two decades, our resources have been severely depleted and the environment has deteriorated. Especially the problems of land, water and air are extraordinarily serious. Our sustainable development, and even the survival of the nation is facing serious threats, far more serious than Germany in those days.
Anyone who has been to Western countries can feel that their living space far exceeds ours. There is a large forest next to their highways, and we rarely see a few trees next to ours; their sky is often blue and white, and our sky is overcast with a black pot covert; their water tap can be twisted to drink, and we even pollute the underground water that you can’t drink without filtering; there are not many people in their streets and only two or three of them live in a house, but we are crowded with people in the street, and a few people have to share a room. Many years ago someone wrote a book titled “The Yellow Peril”, saying that when our country reached a population of 1.3 billion, because we all targeted the high consumption of the American lifestyle, the limited land and resources could not carry it, which will lead to the collapse of our society.
Now our population has exceeded this limit and is supported by imported resources. It’s not that we don’t pay attention to this issue. We have a Ministry of Land and Resources that focuses on this issue every day. Because of the “living space” term has too much connection with Nazi Germany, it is inconvenient for us to speak more about it publicly, so as to prevent the West from thinking of Nazi Germany and fueling the “China threat theory“.
Therefore, when we emphasized that “human rights are the right to exist” in accordance with He Xin’s theory , we deliberately only talk about “survival” without mentioning “space”, and avoid using the term “survival space”. Historically speaking, China faced the problem of living space because the Western countries rushed to develop ahead of the Eastern countries. So they were able to colonize the world and thus occupying an advantageous position in the problem of living space. If we want to solve this problem, we must lead the people to go out and develop abroad.
