The Hongkong-based Ming Pao (September 9) asking whether this year's Sixth Plenary Session will really pass a third "historical resolution", observed that the earlier two such resolutions by Mao and Deng had negated the line of the former 'dynasty'. It recalled Xi Jinping's statement that "two thirty years cannot be mutually negated" and said 'before and after the reform and opening up, that is, he must inherit Mao and Deng as well. For him, there is neither a predecessor who needs to be liquidated nor an established policy that needs to be denied. His review of the party’s history in his July 1 speech only praised the brilliance, without shortcomings and mistakes. He remembered Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, Liu Shaoqi, Zhu De, Deng Xiaoping, Chen Yun and other veterans, and paid tribute to Mao Deng Jianghu and other leaders in the party history exhibition. There are many. As stated in the announcement of the Politburo meeting that decided on the theme of the Sixth Plenary Session , "In the past 100 years, the party has presented an excellent answer to the people and history." At a time when the external pressure is great and there is an urgent need to gather the hearts of the people inside, the Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China summarizes a century of history and should not go to those unhappy scars to talk about things'. Ming Pao added that 'from a technical point of view, the drafting of the third historical resolution is also a huge project. The "45 Resolution" was brewed in 1941 to passed in 1945, which lasted more than 4 years and went through the entire process of Yan'an rectification; the "81 Resolution" was from November 1979. It took more than a year and a half from the month of preparation to the adoption in June 1981, during which a discussion meeting of 2 4,000 high-ranking cadres lasted for a month. If it is not for years of gestation, it is not easy to come up with a third historical resolution within two months
