Professor Hou Huiqin, director of the National Ideology Construction Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), expressed that the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind is the contemporary application of Marx's theory of world history. Marx expressed that the transformation of national history and regional history into world history was irreversible, so as the transformation of world history from capital to socialism. Capital was the first force to write world history, and once played a revolutionary role. Socialism would be the new force leading globalization, and this transformation required new theories. In the face of a major change that has not been seen in a century, and when the world is full of expectation and perplexity, the proposal of the community of human destiny has proposed a Chinese plan to deal with the contemporary complex and changing world situation.
