Who Planted Hatred Against Falun Gong in People's Hearts?
Currently in China, there are a lot of jokes and satirical comments about Jiang Zemin spreading among the Chinese people. However, if we dig further, we'll find that most of the people just dislike him. If you say he is vicious, many people would feel confused. If you say he is the most malicious person in Chinese history, some people might say it's a personal attack. Indeed, there are so many bad people in Chinese history. How can we be so sure that Jiang is the most vicious one? Some people might even defend him by claiming how fast the Chinese economy has been developing and how improved the Chinese position has been in the international community under the leadership of Jiang. If you talk about the issues of how Jiang Zemin has been forming a political gang, how corrupt he is, how he suppresses democracy, how he sells off Chinese land, how he persecutes Falun Gong, how much he tried to conceal the true situation of SARS, and how he has been trying to control the Chinese army, some people would say that these are typical actions by any dictator of any totalitarian regime, and that Jiang is simply one of them.
How vicious is Jiang Zemin? I wasn't clear about this myself until recently. One day we had a party. When the topic changed to Falun Gong, the previously relaxed atmosphere suddenly disappeared. People became very tense. However, they were not disturbed about Jiang Zemin, who committed the crimes against Falun Gong. Instead, they started to criticize Falun Gong, the victim. They blamed Falun Gong for this and that, using all kinds of bad language. Someone even said, "I would persecute Falun Gong if I were Jiang Zemin." The most astonishing thing is that after they threw all kinds of bad words at Falun Gong, they had no desire to listen to other people who sympathize with Falun Gong. Some people said, "Jiang Zemin persecutes Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance. It's undermining human beings' morality." However, other people thought it to be nonsense, "How much value does virtue have? Why do you make a big fuss at people damaging something that's worthless? China needs to develop. Stability is the most important issue." By successfully interrupting the persons who tried to defend Falun Gong, they happily resumed their talk about how to get rich.
It's a very typical discussion. Similar talks happen in all kinds of places in China nowadays. However, from these common stories, I got the answer to my question, "How vicious is Jiang Zemin?"
Originally, many people didn't have any particular like or dislike towards Falun Gong. They didn't know much about Falun Gong at all. However, suddenly they feel they know everything. They could carelessly and harshly criticize Falun Gong boldly and assuredly. They wouldn't listen to Falun Gong practitioners' explanations. They don't care to know about the practitioners' suffering. Instead of stepping forward to help stop this persecution against humanity, they stand together with the persecutor and hold hatred, repulsion, and anger towards Falun Gong from the bottom of their hearts.
How vicious is Jiang Zemin? His viciousness is proportional to the amount of hatred he has been planting in people's hearts!
According to a report in a Chinese newspaper in the United States, there is a young man in Virginia who was an outstanding student with high morality when he was in China. After graduating from the Chinese Technology Institute in Hefei of Anhui Province, he and his wife came to the United States. They got their PhD's and then worked for an American company. His mother is a Falun Gong practitioner. She lived with the young couple. However, when Jiang Zemin initiated the persecution of Falun Gong, the young couple believed Jiang's slander against Falun Gong. The son then drove his mother, who didn't speak English at all, away from their home. His mother had to stay with a local practitioner. "Respect one's parents" is a traditional virtue that Chinese people value. The son did a very good job previously. However, the hatred planted by Jiang Zemin created such a family tragedy.
I also heard of the following story. A young mother brought her two children, nine years old and three years old, to her friend's home for a dinner. She mentioned that she was a Falun Gong practitioner. However, these few words shocked her friend's mother who had just come to the United States for a visit. She asked the young mother, "Falun Gong! You are the first Falun Gong practitioner that I've ever seen. Are you going to kill somebody? I saw a TV program on the Chinese Central Channel a couple of days ago that you Falun Gong practitioners are murderers. One practitioner poisoned over ten people to death." Her extreme anxiety shocked the young mother. The young mother was not good at defending herself. The atmosphere seemed frozen. After a while, the young mother timidly replied, "Auntie, do I look like a murderer to you?"
I felt so sad when I heard the story. "Do I look like a murderer to you?" Who and why would a person try to force a kind and tender young mother to say such humiliating things about herself in front of her children?!
I heard of another story that's even sadder. In some place in China, an elementary school student saw an old woman distributing Falun Gong truth-clarification flyers. The student yelled at her loudly, repeating the Jiang regime's slanderous propaganda, "Go away, evil cult!" HHHow could such an innocent heart treat an elderly person like that! I felt my heart bleeding. How strong the hatred is, that even a small child would act like that! How can we remove the hatred from a child's heart?!
During the past twenty-some years of reforming the economic management system and opening China to the world, the overall strength of China and its communications with the world have been greatly improved. However, it became a tool for Jiang Zemin to spread hatred.
Jiang controls the biggest media system, where the Party's newspapers, TV stations, radio stations, and computer systems can cover the whole world. Jiang's lies about Falun Gong can be spread to the entire world almost instantaneously. From the so-called "Tiananmen Square Self-Immolation Incident," to "The Murderer Fu Yibin," to "The Killing of Beggars in Zhejiang Province," nobody missed all these fabricated stories, including people in China, America, and even Taiwan.
Jiang tightly controls all kinds of organizations at all levels in China, including the CCP, the governments on various levels throughout China, the army, the police, special agencies, foreign affairs departments, unions, student associations, women's associations, political associations, scientists' associations, the so-called "democratic" parties, religious associations, and so on. He uses all of these organizations as tools to brutally suppress, monitor, and persecute Falun Gong practitioners, a group of peaceful people.
No political gang has built an information blockade as strong as Jiang has, where both humans and modern monitoring technologies are used to cover up his crimes. He doesn't allow people to appeal to higher authorities, to spread truth-clarification materials, and to hold up banners. He forbids any media from reporting on the facts about Falun Gong. He has built an army of Internet police. He sets up Internet firewalls to block Falun Gong websites abroad. In a word, he has been using all kinds of ways to block the facts about Falun Gong. As of this time, almost a thousand Falun Gong practitioners have been verified to have died as a result of the persecution. At least six thousand practitioners were illegally sentenced to imprisonment. Hundreds of thousands of practitioners were illegally sent to forced labor camps. Numerous inhumane tortures have been imposed on Falun Gong practitioners. However, it seems that Chinese society isn't aware of such a cruel persecution. They don't believe such things would happen in China. We can see that trying to conceal the truth is the essence of Jiang Zemin's evil nature.
No scoundrel in history has been so directly involved in fabricating lies as Jiang Zemin. Jiang used every chance he could to spread lies about Falun Gong when he talked to the international media or leaders of other countries. During an interview with the French newspaper Figaro, he called Falun Gong "an evil cult." During an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit meeting, he personally handed a booklet slandering Falun Dafa to the American president. When he was interviewed by CBS, he claimed several thousand Falun Gong practitioners had committed suicide. When meeting with officials from Japan, he said he had never heard of Falun Gong before he launched the persecution. However, on another occasion, he said he knew all along that one of his classmates went crazy because of practicing Falun Gong. We can see that fabricating lies at will is an essential part of Jiang Zemin's evil nature.
No totalitarian in history was ever as powerful as Jiang Zemin. Jiang has veto rights in the United Nations. His is the biggest potential market in the world, with over one billion consumers. He uses this situation to both entice and threaten international, political and economic leaders, so that they will comply with his wishes and not stop his crimes of persecuting Falun Gong.
No liars in history were as committed as Jiang Zemin is. He fabricates various kinds of lies to conform to everybody's different kinds of notions. Exploiting the pre-existing notions in people's hearts, he has made people accept his lies and has created hatred against Falun Gong in people's mind. For example, if you believe in science, he would tell you that Falun Gong is superstition. If you don't like politics, he would tell you that Falun Gong has a political background. If you are jealous of people who went abroad and got rich, he would tell you that Falun Gong has collected tons of money from overseas. If you don't like organizations, he would tell you that Falun Gong has a very tightly knit network. If you are tired of the past dozens' of years of worshiping the leader in China, he would tell you Falun Gong would control your mind. If you have strong patriotism, he would tell you that Falun Gong is a tool of overseas forces bent on damaging China. If you don't believe that qigong has much influence over people, he would tell that you practicing Falun Gong would indeed lead people to mental illness. If you want a stable society, he would tell you Falun Gong undermines the social stability. If you hear of Falun Gong's principles of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance, he would tell you that Falun Gong practitioners are untruthful, unkind, and brutal and that the practitioners consider killing an act of kindness. If you don't think the government would lie, he would make up lies, each one bigger than the other. From hurting oneself, to committing suicide, to setting oneself on fire, from killing one's own family to killing a stranger, from killing one person to killing a group of people, he would tell you so many lies that eventually you would accept all of them as facts. So you have sympathy for Falun Gong? He would connect your personal evaluations and advancement opportunities with how you treat Falun Gong. You would lose your bonuses, be demoted, or even lose your job if you have a subordinate going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. In this way, he would force you to be an enemy of Falun Gong.
Of all the shameless people in history, no one else has ever launched such a massive brainwashing campaign to persecute a righteous belief, such as Jiang Zemin has. He orders the arrest of Falun Gong practitioners and forcibly sends them to the so-called "transformation classes." In order to force the practitioners to sign a guarantee of giving up practicing Falun Gong, he uses all kinds of ways to attack practitioners' weaknesses. Then he would expand on the weaknesses by telling distorted theories, pressuring practitioners' families to persuade them, threatening practitioners with not allowing their families to work or go to school, and physically torturing practitioners inhumanely. He would then order the "transformed" practitioners to brainwash other practitioners until they also give up their righteous belief. The purpose is to transform people with high moral standards into automatons that don't respect virtue.
China has been developing and Chinese people are just starting to "enjoy their lives." However, Jiang Zemin is determined to eradicate Falun Gong. The superficial "advancement" covers up the actual falling back of the society. The persecution covered by lies clearly shows how evil Jiang Zemin can be.
To plant hatred against Falun Gong in people's hearts, Jiang Zemin uses lies.
To maintain hatred against Falun Gong in people's hearts, Jiang Zemin uses lies.
To cover up his crimes against Falun Gong, Jiang Zemin tries his best to stop Falun Gong practitioners from clarifying the truth.
Jiang Zemin controls a vast array of media in China. He uses the state machinery against practitioners, no matter whether they step forward to clarify the truth or not. This includes arresting the practitioners, brainwashing the practitioners, sentencing them to forced labor camps, and sentencing them to prison. It is said that all these actions use up one quarter of the annual national income of China. Now Jiang is trying to resort to all kinds of means to stop the lawsuit against him brought by Falun Gong practitioners abroad.
One day, my young son spilled a glass of juice on the carpet. It took my wife a lot of time and effort to clean the carpet. However, even so, the carpet is not as clean as it was before. It made me think of the persecution of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance. Jiang Zemin has polluted people's minds with lies and planted hatred in the depths of people's hearts. What a huge work it will be to cleanse the hatred away. How long will it take to finish this task! It might take a whole generation or even several generations to do so, since it's not a common hatred, instead, it's hatred against Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance. It's hatred against human nature!
There is only one way to remove this hatred created by lies, and that is to help people know the truth.
Jiang Zemin has blocked all the channels that are under his control, to stop Falun Gong practitioners from clarifying the truth. Therefore, Falun Gong practitioners need to explore all the ways that Jiang Zemin cannot control, to explain the facts to people, to remove the hatred and to restore the reputation of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance.
Nowadays, some people claim, "Virtue has no value." Yes, virtue has no value, but that is because it's priceless. A society with an advanced economy yet no respect for virtue is dangerous and is bound to crash. The booming economy would only be temporary. While rapidly developing its economy, China is expanding people's selfishness and corruption. China is in desperate need of virtue. The publications of Falun Gong and the principles of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance are a great opportunity for China. However, out of his personal jealousy, Jiang Zemin launched a national war to eradicate Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance. Chinese people had been waiting for over five thousand years for this opportunity to rebuild respect for virtue, but Jiang Zemin has totally ruined it. Hasn't he committed a huge crime?
I am very glad to hear that Falun Gong practitioners successfully broadcast the truth of Falun Gong via satellite TV. They spread the truth to many Chinese people. This could be China's hope! At the outset, human beings are kind in nature. It is Jiang Zemin who uses lies to stir up people's various attachments and bad notions, and to suppress people's kind nature. He has spread hatred around the world. This is the saddest thing that has happened in our present era. I plan to write a series of articles on "why Jiang Zemin is the most vicious person in history." I will list his crimes one by one to provide evidence of what has happened in this era.
