Get up! People who don’t want to be slaves!

Build our new Great Wall with our flesh and blood!

The Chinese nation is at its most dangerous time,

Everyone was forced to make a final roar:

Get up! Get up! Get up!

We are united as one,

Braving the enemy’s gunfire, advance!

Braving the enemy’s gunfire, advance!

forward! forward! Get in!


Today, let’s talk: the national anthem is never out of date

This year is the new year, and there have been a lot of meetings organized by Party committees and governments at all levels, the National People’s Congress, the Chinese people’s Political Consultative Conference, and business associations in the recent period.

The first item in every meeting is always:

All stand up and sing the National Anthem of the people’s Republic of China

I don’t know why, every time I sing the national anthem with you, there is always a feeling of “trembling” from my forehead to my fingertips, and then I can’t help but clench my fist. This may be the “mysterious power” contained in the national anthem.


There is a lyric in the National Anthem:

The Chinese nation is in the most dangerous time!

Some time ago, some people asked whether this sentence should be changed. Their reasons were:

“Now the world is peaceful, the country is peaceful and the people are safe. Besides, is danger a little paranoid of persecution?”

Is this really the case?

If you want to know what the National Anthem means, you can look back at the previous national anthem.

The earliest national anthem of China originated in 1911. On October 4 (August 13, the third year of Xuantong), the Qing government issued an “edict” to the first National Anthem in Chinese history, “Gong jin’ou”, which was composed by Yan Fu. In name, Pu Dong composed music:

Gongjin’ou, chengtian’an, Xinfu algae, a civilian object,

I was fortunate to be in the Qing Dynasty.

Zhenxiyu, the protector of the imperial sky,

The sky is high and the sea is surging.

But this song has been used for less than a year The Qing Dynasty died.


In 1912, the interim government of the Republic of China was established in Nanjing. Cai Yuanpei, the director general of education, solicited the National Anthem from the public. Later, the Interim National Anthem of the Republic of China was issued. The national anthem, which was composed by Shen Enfu and composed by Shen Pengnian, was drafted. The title of the song was “five flags Republic song”.

The lyrics are basically like this:

Yadong civilized China early, Yimei chasing Europe, the old state made new.

Flying five colored flags, the glory of the Republic of China, beautiful mountains and rivers shine.

My fellow countrymen, encourage civilization and maintain world peace forever.

Later, the “National Anthem” that can reach a consensus is the “National Anthem of the Republic of China”, the predecessor of which is the Kuomintang party song.

On June 3, 1937, the Standing Committee of the Central Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang approved the proposal, which officially became the National Anthem of the Republic of China that year. The lyrics are as follows:

The three people’s principles are our party’s religion; To build the Republic of China, to enter Datong.

Zildosh, a forward for the people; It is impossible to be lax day and night, and the doctrine is from.

Be diligent and brave, believe and be loyal; One heart and one mind, always implement.

But it hasn’t been a month since the July 7th incident broke out… You will know the next thing.


From these three editions of the national anthem,

From “imperial firmament protection” to “old state creation” and then to “three people’s principles”, in fact, it is full of the brand of the times and the label of history, and such a change in lyrics also reflects the change of the national political environment to some extent.

Marx once said: the state is an irreconcilable product of class contradictions and class struggle, and it is the political authority of the ruling class to exercise class rule. Therefore, class nature is the fundamental attribute of the state.

And how to judge the nature of the country? It mainly depends on which class holds the state power and implements the policy of serving which class.

And the national anthem, in fact, is a small incision to observe the nature of the country. Singing with ambition, you can taste one or two from the lyrics of the national anthem.

For example, the National Anthem of Britain, “God bless the Queen”:

God bless the queen, wish her a long life, God bless the queen. Always win, bathe in glory; People’s popularity and happiness; Governing the country, Wang Yunchang; God bless the queen!

(the queen is in poor health recently… I don’t know if the National Anthem should be adjusted without the queen…)


Our country is a socialist country under the people’s democratic dictatorship. So what we sing in the national anthem is “the Chinese nation” and “everyone”.

However, the National Anthem of our country was really established much later than many people thought, and it also experienced many twists and turns.

On September 27th, 1949, the first plenary session of the Chinese people’s Political Consultative Conference adopted the resolution on the capital, chronology, national anthem and national flag of the people’s Republic of China. Passed: “before the National Anthem of the people’s Republic of China was formally formulated, the march of the volunteers was taken as the National Anthem”.

During the cultural revolution, lyricist Tian Han was accused of being imprisoned as a traitor, so the National Anthem became a pure performance music, and generally no longer sang the national anthem. In 1967, someone proposed to modify the lyrics of the national anthem and wrote a version. In 1978, the revision plan of the national anthem was passed… (lyrics are searched by yourselves, so they won’t be put here)

In December 1978, after the Third Plenary Session of the Eleventh Central Committee of the Communist Party of China was held, the unjust case of Tian Han was vindicated. On December 4, 1982, the fifth session of the Fifth National People’s Congress passed a resolution to revoke the lyrics adopted by the National People’s Congress in March 1978 and restore the words and songs of the original “March of the volunteers” to the National Anthem of the people’s Republic of China.

On March 14th, 2004, the second session of the Tenth National People’s Congress officially included the march of the volunteers as the National Anthem in the amendment to the constitution.


Yes, it was not until 2004 that we sang the national anthem for many years that it was established.

Looking back at the evolution of the “National Anthem” since modern times and reviewing the changes of “cognition” in the past few decades, we will find that the external environment of a country and a group is actually changing.

The change of external environment will inevitably bring many changes of internal cognition. When the external environment is severe, tense and fierce, the internal consensus tends to be tight… When the external environment is open, free, inclusive and symbiotic, the internal consensus tends to be loose.

As an organization, a country, it always needs to pursue something that is not likely to change, some consensus deeply imprinted on the bottom of national construction and national consciousness.

If you think about this clearly, you can understand:

As long as our country upholds

The nature of a people’s democratic socialist country remains unchanged

As long as the world appears

Restrictions and oppression on the development of the Chinese nation continue

As long as the future world exists

The power to destroy world peace and human happiness is still there

Then, the national anthem will never be out of date!!


“Be prepared for danger in times of safety, and deal with worries and chaos.” Our party was born in internal and external troubles, grew up in tribulations and setbacks, and grew stronger in overcoming risks and challenges. It has always had a strong sense of hardship and risk. Since the 18th CPC National Congress, I have repeatedly stressed the need to adhere to the bottom line thinking, which is to remind the whole party to always remember “safety without forgetting danger, survival without forgetting death, governance without forgetting chaos”. Under the new situation, China is facing a complex and volatile development and security environment, and various foreseeable and unpredictable risk factors have increased significantly. If they are not controlled in time and effectively, they may also evolve into political risks. All Party comrades, especially leading cadres at all levels, must enhance their awareness of risks and improve their ability to prevent political risks.
