People Are No Longer Deceived by the Lies
August 12, 2002
- During lunch hour one day, people were talking about the gluttony and corruption among the high-ranking officials of the Party. This is a fairly common activity. Suddenly, someone in the table started talking about Falun Gong disrespectfully. An official's wife sitting across the table suddenly said, "Compared to Falun Gong, the Party is far worse." At the same time, a section chief sitting at the next table was telling others, "According to inside information, Jiang cracked down on Falun Gong for his own political purposes, because at that time, a high-ranking official was practicing Falun Gong and his reputation was quite good. Due to his jealousy, Jiang wanted to get rid of him through the suppression of Falun Gong. Jiang first thought that it should be easy to crack down on Falun Gong. However, he didn't expect that Falun Gong practitioners do not fear him. I think Jiang must regret the crack down now."
- People lead me to clarify the truth. One day after dinner, I was chatting with Ms. Y and the vice president of a public company. I started talking about Falun Gong and told them that in order to stop Falun Gong practitioners' appeals, Jiang ordered policemen to guard every major means of entering Beijing and forced people to curse the founder of Falun Gong to differentiate Falun Gong practitioners. The vice president also used his own experience to validate my words, "That is true. In Beijing, you can not say Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in public places, otherwise, policemen will arrest you." Ms. Y couldn't help herself, "That is too horrible! I can't believe that such thing is still happening nowadays. I must tell this to M (her roommate)."
