"We Need More Falun Gong in Our Village"
The greatest headache for township administrators is to collect farming tax. Normally they are not able to collect money when it is due. Of course, this is partly because the government overtaxes farmers, and farmers are bearing great hardships. Most of the time, when township administrators go out to collect taxes, people who owe 200 Yuan would only pay 30-50 Yuan. And farmers would tell them that they had nowhere to borrow the money. Some lock their doors upon seeing the tax collector approaching, and refuse to see them.
But Falun Gong practitioners behave differently. Some send their full tax payments to the government offices and some borrow the money to make full payments when administrators come to their doors, so that the administrators would not need to come again. Some even lent their money to their neighbors who have difficulty paying. Once the village head came to a fellow practitioner's, Mr. Tang's, home to collect the farming tax. Mr. Tang gave all the money he had, but he was still 1.2 Yuan short. The village head said to him, "I saw you tried your best, you can forget this 1.2 Yuan now." But the next day, Mr. Tang borrowed 1.2 Yuan, and delivered it to the township government in person. The tax collector was very moved. He said, "Falun Gong practitioners have established a good example of paying taxes. I say Falun Dafa is good!"
The secretary of third village told a township officer, "If only there were more Falun Gong practitioners in our village, not only would it be easier to collect farming taxes, but other things would be much easier too."
We have found that walking our path righteously is the best way to defend Dafa.
