TheChineseToday, Thursday (1/7), the Communist Party celebrates its 100th Anniversary.
Chinese President Xi Jinping marked the centenary celebrations of the founding Chinese Communist Party, stating that no country can bully Bamboo Curtain anymore.
To the cheers of Chinese Communist Party supporters gathered at Tiananmen Square on Thursday (1/7) AM, Xi stated that China’s era was over for being bullied and victimized.
Later, he said that “Anyone daring to do so [bully China], their head will bleed from being hit by the Great Wall made with steel by 1.4 million Chinese citizens.”
The party was established in 1921 as an underground movement for revolution. One century later, China’s Communist Party (CCP), one of the largest superpowers in the globe, has retaken control.
Around the turn of 1921, a few Marxist activists in the country started to form local groups. This was the start of the formation of the party.
Representatives from these organizations hosted the inaugural congress on July 23, 1921.
Mao Zedong was one of the present figures. He is the founder of China and a former president.
Mao and other revolutionaries set the anniversary for the CCP a few years later. CCP officials couldn’t remember exactly when the party was founded so Mao decided to designate July 1 each year as the party’s anniversary.
China’s Ruling China: CCP’s Footsteps
The Chinese civil war, in which the CCP along with other revolutionary communist figures tried to overthrow the nationalist government, broke out shortly after World War II was over. China’s communists eventually overthrew the nationalist government of China due to corruption and economic collapse.
1949 saw the victory of Mao’s CCP in the Chinese Civil war. They took control of mainland China from the nationalist government of the Kuomintang party coalition. The remaining territory consisted of Taiwan, Hainan, and the islands surrounding it.
Mao officially declared the formation of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949.
Eventually, the KMT and its allies fled to Taiwan after losing the war. They founded the Republic of China, now known as Taiwan.
The conflict between Taiwan and China has continued to evolve since then.
The Chinese Communist Party was the dominant organ of state power after establishing the PRC. This included the executive, legislative, and judicial levels as well as the armed forces. The CCP is present in almost every corner of Chinese public life.
CCP’s top-ranking party committees control policy-making and have the power to override government ministries. CCP party members are also the majority of staff at government agencies, from Beijing to villages across China.
They also manage state-owned businesses and oversee religious and civic groups, chambers and commerce, as well as trade unions.
CCP regulations mandate that all Chinese organizations with at least three members establish a CCP party cells. Chinese law also requires that companies meet the requirements to create CCP party organizations and facilitate their activities.
According to The Wall Street Journal newspaper, the CCP is one of the most powerful political parties in the world. It has more than 95 million members. CCP was originally 50 people.
The original ideology behind the CCP’s formation was to overthrow the bourgeoisie in favor of a classless society.
100 years ago, the CCP was founded. Today, the party still refers to the “realization of communism” as its highest ideal.
However, in practice, party leaders have tended to favor capitalist methods and encouraged entrepreneurship to achieve the economic prosperity that they believe is essential for maintaining China’s single-party system.
Deng Xiaoping was the supreme leader in the CCP’s late 1970s. He initiated this shift of perspective. To revitalize the economy of the Bamboo Curtain country, he changed the party’s focus from revolution to modernization through market-style reforms.
