Although we live in a country that has been ruled by Chinese Communist Party (CCP) atheist dictators for decades, and though the CCP has repeatedly brainwashed us, from childhood to adulthood, our admiration for gods had always come from the depths of our hearts. After all, we have five thousand years of divinely-imparted culture.
Several hundred years ago, people reminded themselves to not forget the coming of the age when "the streets are full of gods." Now that this age is almost here, people are so engrossed in their own things to raise their heads and look around. The evil CCP has turned China into a nation that pays great attention to materialistic benefits. What is of interest to people are only supernatural powers, while the godly demeanour and morality are ignored. The well-known, legendary stories that were passed down are seen merely as fairy tales. In fact, people are unaware that genuinely miraculous deeds have for several years ago left their footprints all over China.
Since 2000, the CCP's National Security Departments and the Police Departments have resorted to using spies and secret agents to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, and have also acted in increasingly covert ways. They initially began tapping practitioners' phone lines and cell phones, and installing video cameras in front of the practitioners' homes, following the practitioners, and staying in hidden places so as to arrest the practitioners, and so forth. The CCP went so far later on as to spend so much of the Chinese people's hard-earned money--one quarter of the nation's financial resources--to persecute Falun Gong. The CCP also used specialised research institutes in various places, including Nanjing City, to come up with ways to block access to the Internet. Despite these attempts, the persecution of Falun Gong is still exposed daily on the Internet. The CCP then racked its brain and plotted incidents to seal off the Internet cafés. When its attempt to eliminate the Internet cafés failed, it then spent a tremendous amount of money to bribe the big international Internet company leaders and bought and installed a large number of monitoring and network-filtering systems. In the meantime the CCP has also installed hidden video camera monitoring systems along city streets, cameras that are not intended for traffic management.
Falun Gong practitioners' rational and peaceful truth-clarification has earned the admiration of the Chinese people and caught international attention. Highly placed members in the CCP also hold different views on persecuting Falun Gong. Seeing that the persecution of Falun Gong was difficult to sustain, Jiang Zemin's gang then plotted the "Tiananmen Square Self-Immolation Incident" during the 2001 Spring Festival, attempting to make Chinese people hate Falun Gong. However, lies are still lies; people from all strata of society and of course Falun Gong practitioners soon discovered the many fallacies in the staged incident. This convinced them even more of the CCP's ruthless and inhumane acts of persecuting kind people.
Jiang's gang panicked and took even more measures to block the Internet. They also installed along the country's borders and on the plateaus equipment to interfere with satellite TV signals from other nations. They equipped National Security agents and the police with advanced technology. Special purpose vehicles, with antennas mounted on the top that can detect radiation from computers, roamed the streets.
The World Organisation to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong reported on March 20th, 2003, "In the present China, one quarter of the nation's financial resources have been used for the persecution of Falun Gong. The money comes from Chinese citizens' hard-earned tax money, and is also diverted from foreign investments meant for economic development, as well as from the illegal fines imposed upon Falun Gong practitioners and their family members. All of the money is used for arresting and persecuting Falun Gong practitioners and establishing the Gestapo like "610 Offices" and detention and brainwashing centres throughout China. The government has mobilised all the nation's media to slander and frame Falun Gong. It is also engaged in activities outside China, such as harassing overseas Falun Gong practitioners. Its doing so has placed tremendous pressure on the livelihoods of people throughout China and brought grave consequences to the nation's economic development."
The evil CCP's persecution of Falun Gong has reached an unprecedented, frenzied state, regardless of the consequences. Not long ago, the regime published national economic data. The data clearly showed that China is faced with a severe economic crisis. CCP General Secretary Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao have repeatedly warned the Party in meetings of the CCP's Politburo and the CCP Central Committee: "It is not alarmist talk that China's economy could collapse in 2008, as was mentioned by the overseas individuals. What we are facing is quite severe!"
It appears on the surface that the evil CCP controls the enormous state machinery and is extremely powerful. However, Falun Gong practitioners have not been destroyed, and furthermore, Falun Gong has spread to over eighty countries. Mr. Li Hongzhi's major book Zhuan Falun has been translated into over thirty languages, and over one hundred million people worldwide practise Falun Gong. More and more people in China have come to know the truth about Falun Gong and seen through the CCP's evil nature, and many of these people have begun their cultivation of Falun Dafa.
In the eyes of onlookers, on one side there is a group of powerless ordinary citizens, on the other a vicious Party that controls the whole nation's army and controls the police, secret agents and state machinery; on one side are ordinary people who are scattered around the country, have no funds, nobody to prop them up, and follow no charters, while the people on the other side control the seemingly powerful national machinery, have been tempered through many years of cruel struggle, possess the whole nation's resources, have millions of Party members, and are organised in an unprecedented way from top to bottom. On one side are a group of senior citizens, unemployed middle-aged workers, and some who were employed but hampered by the evil Party's spider web-like organisations--these people follow the principles of not retaliating when they are hit or cursed. On the other side are the evildoing aides who have given up their conscience, had their minds poisoned while being raised and indoctrinated with state terrorism propaganda. Those people regard the Party's interests above those of humanity. The evil Party's many organisations include local CCP branches, the neighbourhood committees, the national security departments, the police, the law enforcement agencies, the "610 Offices," and others. These groups have mastered a systematic way to suppress people and also possess the means for such suppression.
After the past seven years of persecution, Falun Gong still stands rock-solid. There is no known incident where Falun Gong practitioners have resorted to violent methods to resist violence. Furthermore, people have increasingly realised Falun Gong practitioners' attributes--they have a kind of peace that people have never experienced before, dared not to believe, but hoped fervently would exist. This kind of peace has surpassed their imagination. People have witnessed that the realms described in the ancient sages' moral classics have manifested over the past seven years; furthermore, the realms described in those ancient classics cannot encompass and reach what has manifested over these seven years. Even the well-educated scholars can barely understand the extent of tribulations Falun Gong practitioners have endured over the past seven years and what blessings they have brought to the world.
At the beginning of the persecution in 1999, the evil Party's head boasted he would "destroy Falun Gong in three months." Later it had to take Falun Gong as its adversary. Interestingly, Falun Gong practitioners who follow "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance" have never taken the evil CCP as their enemy! Falun Gong merely considers the evil Party as a malignant tumour that needs excising and wants to rescue people, and sees the evil Party as a pest--trash that should be swept away during a major housecleaning. It should no longer be allowed to pollute the human environment.
Everyone who has eyes, ears, nose, and a mind can see things differently. People cannot say that the national security agents are not professionals - after all, they install wireless pin-head-sized video cameras under lamp shades, inside television sets, and behind the pictures on walls in Falun Gong practitioners' homes. Many Falun Gong practitioners can always sense these installations. Does this mean that Falun Gong practitioners are specially trained to ferret out spies? Not so! Dafa practitioners are the guardians of the world's righteous elements, and all abnormal and dark things will expose themselves and falter before Dafa disciples. Many Dafa practitioners can sense when making phone calls or using their cell phones whether or not their conversations are tapped. When the secret agents installed the pin-head-sized video cameras or tapping devices they were extremely careful, but their actions were still in vain. When Dafa disciples went back home, they saw the cover for the home stereo system had dropped down; the devices under the lamp shades became useless.
No one who wanted to persecute a righteous belief has ever succeeded. Seven years have passed, and Falun Gong still stands rock-solid. Falun Gong has become the monument that has validated "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance." In the near future, people will see that Falun Gong is the only hope for the world's sentient beings.
