Abstract: Mao Zedong inherited the thought of The Communist Manifesto and summarized the general law of social revolution: firstly, the revolution of the superstructure; secondly, the revolution of economic base (production relation); and finally, the revolution of productive force. This is not only the history of CPC’s endeavor from 1921-2021, but also as the inner logic, the theoretical summary of CPC’s historical development. How to solve the problems after the development of productive force? During the spiral-up of history, the Party remains true to its original aspiration, keeps its mission firmly in mind, “does it again”, returns to the revolution of superstructure, promotes social revolution by self-revolution, and at higher historical level, advances the reform of economic base (production relation) for the development of productive force to build a great modern socialist country of China. The 18th National Congress of CPC is the historical and logical starting points of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era as a great social revolution (2012-2050).
