Written during the critical period of China crisis, it rounds out thematically “an intention to revolt and an aim to take action” against the foreign imperialist invasion, feudalist political culture, and perverse conventions. Meanwhile, it promotes the necessity of democratic revolution, intellectual reform, liberation of individuality, and reconstruction of national identity, among others.
