Revolutionary culture is created by our party leading the people in revolution, construction and reform, and is an important part of socialist culture with Chinese characteristics in the new era. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping has visited many old revolutionary areas, visited the people in the old areas, and made important instructions for inheriting the red gene and carrying forward the spirit of the old areas. We extract from Xi Jinping's book "On the Party’s Propaganda and Ideological Work" After reading General Secretary Xi Jinping’s relevant expositions on revolutionary culture, he understood the profound meaning of "making revolutionary culture a spiritual force that inspires the people to advance bravely."As soon as I came here, I remembered the evocative years of the Revolutionary War. In the red land of Yimeng, countless heroic children were born. The deeds of the six Yimeng sisters, the Yimeng mother, and the Yimeng Hongsao were very touching. The Yimeng spirit, like the Yan'an spirit, Jinggangshan spirit, and Xibaipo spirit, is a precious spiritual wealth of the party and the country, and it must continue to be carried forward in accordance with the conditions of the new era.
(Speech during the inspection tour in Shandong from November 24 to 28, 2013)An inch of mountains and rivers, an inch of blood, a touch of hot soil and a touch of soul. Recalling the past years of flames, the people of Jinzhai, with their fearless spirit of sacrifice, have established a brilliant history for the cause of the Chinese revolution. We must continue to follow the footsteps of the revolutionary predecessors and pass on the red country from generation to generation. Revolutionary traditional education should start with a baby, focusing not only on instilling knowledge, but also strengthening emotional cultivation, so that the red gene can penetrate into the blood and heart, and guide the vast number of young people to establish a correct outlook on the world, life, and values.(Speech during the survey in Anhui from April 24 to 27, 2016)
