Chinese scientists must be patriots and have spiritual support. Seek not money, not fame, but SERVE THE PEOPLE!

Not only are the Chinese bigger, better, faster and cheaper, but their scientists are expected to not be profit- and fame-driven, which is the tendency in the West. Below are comments from the sixth most powerful leader in China, Ding Xuexiang, who works with Xi Jinping in the Politburo Standing Committee, the highest governing body in Sinoland.

As role models, Ding cites Qian Xuesen and Guo Yonghuai.

Qian was a father of Chinese missile, satellite and space technology. Working at the highest levels of USA’s MIT, Caltech and NASA, he was kicked out of the country during the Anti-Red Scare of the 1950s, based on zero evidence. Too bad for Uncle Slaughter, Qian went back home to develop the PRC’s atomic bomb, ICBMs, satellites, and all those Chinese aircraft carrier killer missiles that will take out America’s deep water navy in minutes have Qian’s signature on them.

Guo Yonghuai was another Caltech alum, who came back home before the 1950s anti-communist hysteria. He is considered a founding father of China’s postwar mechanics, applied mathematics and aeronautics, helping head up China’s atomic and hydrogen bomb projects. Sadly, he died in 1968 at the age of 59, in a plane crash.

Here is what Ding Xuexiang wrote about Chinese scientists, the needs of their spirituality, patriotism and serving the country’s people. How can fame-and-fortune Western scientists compete? They can’t.

From a report on Ding Xuexiang’s comments at the 2024 National Science and Technology Week and Beijing Science and Technology Week.

“Scientific achievements cannot be separated from spiritual support. The soul of a scientist’s spirit is patriotism. The older generation of scientists were able to achieve brilliant accomplishments under extremely difficult conditions primarily because of their deep patriotism and ambition to serve the country. On the new journey of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, we need to vigorously promote the spirit of scientists, we need more Qian Xuesen and Guo Yonghuai of the new era, and we need more scientific researchers to shoulder the mission and responsibility of achieving high-level scientific and technological self-reliance and strength.

He hoped that the vast number of scientific researchers will cherish the feelings of home and country, inherit the spiritual torch, bravely climb scientific peaks, integrate their personal ideals into the national mission, and make contributions to Chinese-style modernization.”
