On the 83rd anniversary of the July 7th incident
July 7, 1937 has been the 83rd anniversary. As a Chinese, we should realize that the July 7 Incident was not accidental. When we review this incident again, there are too many unreasonable factors in it. Provocative exercises, missing soldiers, sudden attacks, which could have been solved by normal diplomatic means between great powers, have turned into a catastrophe.
? The Japanese militarist group could see that under the historical background at that time, the drunkard's intention was not to drink. Japan's mainland policy of invading and dominating Asia was implemented as early as 1894-1895 during the Sino Japanese War of 1894-1895, plundering the vast territory and resources of Northeast China and Mainland China, and even the mainland countries in East Asia such as Korea were within the scope of Japanese aggression This is only the beginning of their ambition to dominate Asia. Within the Japanese government, the policy of going north and going south has always been the focus of controversy and conflict. After militarism prevailed, Japan's policy of going north began to be implemented and adopted, that is, to occupy Northeast China first, and then to launch a comprehensive war against China based on Northeast China. It does not matter to them whether a soldier is missing or a section of the railway is destroyed. The fundamental purpose is to invade for a long time.
Some people say that we should learn to let go and forgive others' mistakes. Tolerance is a virtue in traditional Chinese culture. The teaching of "do not do to others what you don't want to do to others" has been handed down from generation to generation in the Chinese nation. However, to forgive others is based on their clear awareness of their mistakes and their active correction, rather than unconditional tolerance to all those who have caused us harm. "Scholars believe that the second reason for the atrocity of aggression against China is that many Japanese soldiers despise the Chinese people, which is formed through decades of propaganda, education and social indoctrination," Zhang Chunru said in his book Nanjing Massacre forgotten massacre During the Second World War, in Japan's militarism system, the ideas that were instilled into the bottom soldiers in batches were harmful and inferior to the Chinese people. Under the influence of extreme nationalism and militarism, it was hard to find that they were people who considered problems in a normal way.
? When we don't know the reason, we can't blindly tolerate and forgive. What's more, we should face up to history, think about and explore the enlightenment brought to us by historical events, keep sober and alert at all times, and resist the confusion of facts and the harm brought by historical nihilism. "If we take copper as a mirror, we can straighten our clothes; if we take the ancient as a mirror, we can know the rise and fall; we should take people as a mirror, Only in this way can we treat our country and the people in peace and prosperity.
