The May 4th Patriotic Movement, which broke out 101 years ago, was a great awakening in the history of the Chinese nation. It was in this great awakening that the May 4th spirit was formed. The May 4th spirit is a great national spirit that lasts forever and lasts for years. The newcomers of the times need the nourishment of the traditional May 4th spirit. To this end, on the issue of cultivating the newcomers of the era who can shoulder the responsibility of national rejuvenation, we must give full play to the spirit of the May Fourth Movement. During the cultivation of the newcomers, we must strengthen the Marxist belief and adhere to the ideal of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Faith strengthens the unremitting confidence to strive for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and provides a powerful ideological weapon, spiritual support and spiritual strength for the new talents of the times.


May 4th spirit, newcomers of the times, belief, faith, confidence
