    In the midtolate 19th century, Marx saw the false nature behind the primitive accumulation of Western industrial capital through the illusion of rapid development of the capitalist economy, and deeply criticized British colonialism. He exposed the British colonial atrocities in China and its harm, dialectically analyzed the double impact of British colonial acts on Indian rule. But in his later years, Marx corrected the early affirmative evaluation of the British colonialism, reanalyzed the historical role of colonialism in India, and profoundly criticized the deep disaster caused by colonial rule in the eastern countries. Marx’s criticism of the colonialism and bridging of British colonialism has a vigilant meaning to our vigilance against various colonialism and imperialism. It also provides a theoretical weapon for today’s resistance to cultural colonialism and “peaceful evolution”, as well as a realistic revelation for the construction of the Shared Community of Human Destiny.
