Section II Role of the Giant
People who make vigorous efforts to turn the situation at the important turning moment in the history could be called as great man. Great men’s achievements would be splendid in the history and handed down for thousands of years. Besides his personal talents and personality power, the naissance of great man is accompanied with important historical events, just as a Chinese saying goes “Times makes heroes”.
Great man never comes out in the times without historical billows. That is because how he shows his preeminence if he doesn’t have opportunity to make vigorous efforts to turn the situation. For example, if there was no Second World War and extremely valiant and guileful Adolf Hitler, there will be no such great men like Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Vissarrionovich Stalin and Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill. If they were just in a historical period without important events, they probably could only fulfill the normal responsibilities of an ordinary national leader and live their political life trivially and would be faceless in the history. However they caught up with historically great changes and came across powerful opponents. After experiencing life and death tough test, they led their people obtaining the success of anti-aggressive war and changed the world history. Therefore, they got success with their career. And their great reputation left a great record in the history.
What kind of people could be called as giants? Literally speaking, the giants must be greater than the great men. They must accomplish incredible and brilliant achievements that were unparalleled in the history. Reviewing the world history, how many people there could be called as giants?!
After selecting from some acknowledged preeminent political leaders in the world history, there were some remarkable persons including Alexander, Asoka, Emperor Qin Shihuang, Emperor Hanwu, Caesar, Mohammed, Genghis Khan, Peter the Great, Washington, V.Lenin, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Vissarrionovich Stalin and Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill. They were recognized to be people who accomplished great achievements because their behavior played tremendous effects on the history. Their accomplishments could generally be divided into the following categories:
1. Large-scaled subjection and less defeated more and ruled unprecedented territory. Alexander and Genghis Khan belonged to this kind of great men.
2. They carried out effective governing on politics, economy and military and reforms in domestic and started up mass subjection and occupancy externally. They established basis for their offspring’s stable administration and dilation, for example Caesar and Peter the Great.
3. Unify a divisive nation or large natural territory with path-breaking significance, such as Asoka, Emperor Qin Shihuang and Mohammed.
4. Establish a country with entirely new system which had a profound influence on the future, such as Washington and V.Lenin.
5. Defeat strong invaders and maintain the stability of the country or world, such as Emperor Hanwu and great men created in the Second World War including Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Vissarrionovich Stalin and Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill.
Thus it can be seen that there were three features with the achievements of the most outstanding political leaders in human history till now:
Firstly, all their achievements were concentrated on group interests, such as countries, nations and religions. The most common form was generally the national interests. Just as in the Second World War, if America which was far away from the European and Asian war centers didn’t feel threats to its national interests, Franklin Roosevelt wouldn’t dispatch troops. Alexander and Genghis Khan’s ceaseless subjection was to found an incredibly powerful country. Washington and V.Lenin wanted to set up a country with optimal political system. Asoka, Emperor Qin Shihuang, Emperor Hanwu, Caesar, Mohammed and Peter the Great were all for the sake of some group’s interests. Even if some great men in the history gained the achievements for the sake of their individual ambitions, the targets finally belonged to group interests.
Secondly, all their achievements were concentrated on the subject of happiness. Take the outstanding persons with feature of expansion and subjection in the history for example, as political leaders; they extended their ruling scope mainly for the sake of satisfying their subjection desire rather than their existence. Because the way they existed wasn’t a problem for them as the ruler of a powerful country. They were willing to expand their ruling area or satisfy their subjection desire which were a kind happiness pursuit for them.
Concerned the preeminent political leaders that resisted the aggressive ears, they didn’t wish that people in his country or in other countries suffered from oppression and exploitation if they considered people’s interests as starting point. They were not willing to be conquered people. The so-called under compression and exploitation or being conquered people all belonged to the scope of happiness values. And the individual desires of these leaders belonged to the scope of happiness values certainly. The accomplished achievements concentrating on the purpose of establishing an entirely new political system had a subject of happiness because an excellent political system was relevant to the content of people’s happiness.
Thirdly, the achievements of all preeminent politicians couldn’t be separated from wars. Furthermore, the aims of their activities were all exchanging some happiness values of one party for some happiness values of the other party. It was because of the features of the national society. When a country grows strong, it would like to conquer externally. Then war breaks out. When a country suffers from the invasion of formidable enemy, it will adopt war to carry out forceful counteraction. When a country wants to found a new political system, it should deprive the rule right and happiness of some other people. And it will adopt war. There are mass personnel casualties along with wars. Consequently, it costs the deprivation of many people’s existence rights to accomplish the achievements of preeminent great men.
Meanwhile, the result of war is to exchange the happiness of some people for the happiness of other people certainly. That is because any party is just for the sake of acquiring some happiness values when it starts up war. When a party acquires the part of happiness values, it means the other party will lose the corresponding part of happiness values.
People always say it is all for the sake of nation’s existence. The saying isn’t exact really. Generally speaking, the nation in which the people achieving excellent accomplishments belong to always is powerful nation. The nation couldn’t suffer from the threat of slaughter of the entire nation or most of people. Even if it is occupied and conquered by the invader, it just means the nation will be enslaved by foreign nations but not race extinction concerning existence. The situation involving race extinction just aims at some smaller nations in which historical giants won’t present. There were exactly only 1,000,000 people in Genghis Khan’s Mongolia Nation. But his subjection was unprecedented. When he conquered other nations, he didn’t suffer from the threat of race existence. That is to say he carried out subjection not because the existence of his nation suffered from threat but because of some satisfaction.
The transition of national society to the grand unified society is unprecedented huge social revolution in human history. The huge social revolution requires the leadership and guidance of historical giants. And there must be giants that lead and guide the development of human history which is a necessary phenomenon in any great history turning. Only the combination of history giants and history laws could produce immense historical transition. The two aspects are both indispensable.
Then what kind of history giants will present during the transition process of national society to the grand unified society. If we carry out corresponding narration by combining the features of this revolution and the above analysis, we could find out clearly that the historical transition of national society to the grand unified society has essentially different features with those of all the previous historical revolutions.
Firstly, all the past historical revolutions concentrated on the group interests such as country, nation and religion. But the historical revolution concentrates on the human beings’ entirety interests. Its interests scope is unparalleled by a group or some groups.
Secondly, all the past revolutions concentrated on the value target of happiness which was the happiness values within the group scope. But the revolution concentrates on the existence value which is the entirety existence of the human beings. Among the values of human beings, the existence value is higher than happiness value. Comparing with the happiness within the group scope, the entirety existence of human beings has the weight of absolute advantage.
Thirdly, all the past great revolutions were realized in slaughtering form of war. And no matter what the war is just or not, it all indicated to exchange a part of happiness values of some people for a part of happiness values of other people. But the revolution considers human beings’ entirety existence as its goal and will realize the goal by using peaceful way. Furthermore, although the original intention of realizing the grand unification is for the sake of human existence, it can’t be achieved by the national country in the aspect of full realization of human’s happiness values and other values in the grand unified society. In fact, the grand unified society is an ideal society morphology which conforms to the principle of maximum values.
Because of the above mentioned reasons, we are completely sure that the replacement of national society by the grand unified society has greatest significance on the entire human beings than any historical turning in human history. The transition of national society to the grand unified society will probably adopt the peaceful way to realize which strengthens the entirety justice of the transition.
If there were great men produced in human history, this historical transition will produce giants certainly. If there were giants produced in human history, this historical transition will produce unprecedented giants certainly. Concretely comparing, if the record-breaking Second World War creates great men such as Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Vissarrionovich Stalin and Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill, the great men created in this grand historical revolution will realize greater historical achievements than the former. And their achievements’ weight is even incomparable. Therefore, the great significance of the transition of national society to the grand unified society is incomparable by any historical revolution. The distance is difficult to be expressed with words.
Although country is the supreme power in national society, not all of the countries have the capability of mastering the world. Only fewer large countries could promote the history. The grand unification career undoubtedly relies on the strength promotion of large countries, especially the power of political leaders in large countries.
It is well known that the threat on human beings’ entirety existence brought by technology development increases with the time goes. The urgency of the transition of national society to the grand unified society becomes more and more obvious. The realization of early transition could relieve the existence threat for human beings greatly. In the situation that we possess of all the objective situations driving the grand unification process, it is time for the start-up of the wheel of history. We don’t expect that every people have rationality, consciousness and capability. But we could repose our hope to the leaders of large countries. The human beings require their salvation. And their wisdom is sufficient for them make intelligent choice for themselves. Their uniform actions could master the history process to a large extent.
It is the times which could produce unprecedented giant. Such a great career requires the drive of giant. The political leaders of large countries who are evasive and disregardful at the historically key moment will be the sinner in the history. If the leaders could come out boldly and bear the heavy burden of the history, their unprecedented achievements in rescuing human beings will be recorded in the history. And our offspring will remember their merits and virtues forever.
For the sake of human beings’ circle of life and our offspring’s happiness and peace, the history calls for the giant.
