General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that culture is the soul of a country and a nation. Culture rejuvenates the country and promotes prosperity. Strengthening cultural self-confidence is a major issue that concerns the rise and fall of the nation's fortunes, cultural security, and national spiritual independence. To strengthen cultural self-confidence, the most important thing is to accurately grasp the distinctive characteristics of the socialist culture with Chinese characteristics in the new era, profoundly understand its great superiority and strong vitality, and effectively strengthen the emotional foundation and ideological consciousness of firm cultural self-confidence.
People's nature is the clear background of cultural self-confidence. Culture has always been a portrayal of the people's life, a reflection of the people's spirit, and a manifestation of the people's voice. The people are the creators of culture. The history of China's development since modern times is also a history that gradually climbed after the decline in cultural confidence. The nature and purpose of the Communist Party of China have endowed the people with cultural self-confidence. The party spirit and the people's spirit have always been consistent and unified. Under the leadership of the Party, the Chinese nation has achieved a historic leap from standing up, getting rich, and becoming stronger. It has created and developed a socialist culture with Chinese characteristics and re-established the cultural confidence of the Chinese nation. We insist on cultural development for the people, and the fruits of cultural development are shared by the people, and they continue to meet the multi-level, diverse, and multi-faceted spiritual and cultural needs of the people. It can be said that without the prosperity of Chinese culture, there will be no great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. In the new era, the main contradictions in our society have been transformed into the contradictions between the people's increasing needs for a better life and imbalanced and inadequate development. Cultural needs are the deeper needs. General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized that the rejuvenation of a nation requires strong physical and spiritual power. Without the active guidance of advanced culture, the great abundance of the people ’s spiritual world, and the continuous enhancement of the national spiritual power, a country and a nation cannot stand in the forest of the nations of the world.
Advancement is the fundamental foundation of cultural self-confidence. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that the socialist culture with Chinese characteristics originates from the excellent traditional Chinese culture nurtured by the Chinese nation over 5,000 years of civilization and is cast in the revolutionary culture and advanced socialism created by the party in leading the people in revolution, construction, and reform. Culture is rooted in the great practice of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Chinese excellent traditional culture is the root and soul of the Chinese nation's endless development and growth. It has made outstanding contributions to mankind and is a fundamental cultural resource that strengthens cultural self-confidence. The party has led the people to creatively develop a revolutionary culture and a vigorous and advanced socialist culture, which together form a strong spiritual support that inspires the people of all ethnic groups and nations to move forward and jointly realize the great dream of the Chinese nation. Inexhaustible motivation and realistic foundation for self-confidence. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core has led the Chinese people to enrich and develop socialist culture with Chinese characteristics and created a bright future for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. With excellent answers, he answered "Why the Chinese Communist Party", "Why Marxism", and "Why is Socialism with Chinese Characteristics" good?
Openness is an important manifestation of cultural self-confidence. The development of culture must not be solitary and self-respecting, nor can it stand still. It must be motivated and inclusive. Cultural self-confidence needs to be established and tested in openness and tolerance, and strengthened and demonstrated in exchanges and mutual learning. Taking an inclusive, borrowing, and absorbing attitude towards foreign cultures is another expression of cultural self-confidence; in the process of learning, complementing, and integrating different cultures, it will also collide with more brilliant sparks, further consolidating the foundation of self-confidence. Improve self-confidence. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that the Chinese civilization is a civilization that emerged on the land of China, and is also a civilization formed by constant exchanges and mutual learning with other civilizations. During the investigation in Dunhuang, he further emphasized that if we want to create the new glory of Chinese culture, we must have a broader mind, carry out cultural exchanges with other countries more extensively, and learn more actively from all the world's outstanding cultural achievements. Adhering to cultural self-confidence is to create a good environment of contention and blossoming flowers on the basis of promoting the main theme, maintaining the main position, and grasping the dominant power, creating a vivid situation in which thousands of sails compete and flow, and boldly absorb the excellence of different cultures. To promote the prosperity and development of socialist culture with Chinese characteristics. (Chu Bo, Deputy Minister of Propaganda Department of Fujian Discipline Inspection Commission)
