My Thoughts After Studying Teacher's New Article, "Further Remarks On 'Politics'"
(Clearwisdom.net) The evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has persecuted Falun Gong for eight years. It has made up lies and fabricated cases to smear Falun Gong all over the world, and has exhausted its repertoire of evil tactics. Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted in extremely brutal and inhuman ways. Excruciating torture, organ harvesting from living practitioners, burning corpses and killing witnesses to destroy evidence are actions which have astonished the world and enraged the divine. These bloody crimes have always been carried out in secret. To cover up the truth of the persecution the CCP has used its vast resources to block information, especially in blocking Internet websites and oversea media. It has spent tens of billions of yuan to do so.
When the persecution of Falun Gong started in 1999, in order to ban the practice, the CCP first condemned Falun Gong as a so-called "illegal organization," and later as a "cult". When it saw that the persecution couldn't be sustained, it staged the "Tiananmen Self-Immolation" to slander and stir up hatred against Falun Gong among the general public, creating grounds to aggravate the persecution. More than 2000 government-controlled media in mainland China were used to spread propaganda to back up the evil party. People the world over were deceived.
Falun Gong practitioners both inside China and overseas clarified the truth in various ways to end the persecution and save sentient beings. In order to break through the news blackout by the CCP they established their own media to tell the world the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong, and used different ways to display the beauty of Falun Dafa to the world. Many people who were deceived by the CCP have learned the truth. Especially since The Epoch Times introduced the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, the evil character and bloody crimes of the CCP have been fully exposed to the public. No matter what intrigue the party uses, they aren't able to cover up their mountainous crimes. The evil party can no longer sustain the persecution, which has lasted for eight years. The people of the world are recognizing the evil nature of the CCP, and now the CCP is frightened to its core. When everyone knows the truth, the evil CCP will be no more.
In order to deceive the public and confuse right and wrong, the CCP has once again trotted out the bogus line that Falun Gong students are "getting political." This is merely a last ditch effort to sustain the persecution. The CCP is labeling everything that Falun Gong practitioners do in clarifying the truth as "getting political." Practitioners pass out truth-clarification materials, and the CCP says that they are getting "political." Practitioners use music, dance, art and various artistic forms to show the beauty of Falun Dafa, and the CCP still says that they are "getting political." NTDTV's Chinese New Year Spectacular is a first-class show that displays the real Chinese culture. It was performed in more than thirty cities around the world and applauded by people of every nationality, yet once again the CCP says Falun Gong practitioners are "getting political."
On February 21, 2007, Teacher published "Further Remarks on 'Politics'." In it Teacher wrote,
"The truth is, mankind's "politics" was not designed for the persecutors' use. If "getting political" can expose the persecution, if "getting political" can stop the persecution, if "getting political" can help clarify the facts, if "getting political" can save sentient beings--if "getting political" can do all of this good, then why not do so? The crux of the matter, it would seem, is that a cultivator's motive is to stop the persecution, and not to "get political" for the sake of gaining human political power. Cultivators have no desire for power among men: just the opposite, cultivators are to let go of any attachment to power."
Dafa students tell the world the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong to end the persecution, not to fight for power or "get political." If the CCP weren't persecuting Falun Gong, the anti-persecution activities wouldn't exist. If the CCP didn't widely spread its lies to the world, truth-clarification wouldn't be necessary. Everything Falun Gong practitioners are doing is to end the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong. Falun Gong is a form of cultivation, not a political organization that seeks money or power.
Dafa students clarify the truth to those who don't know it, and who think that Falun Gong practitioners are not only "getting political," but are also "anti-party." Actually the CCP isn't worthy of being opposed by cultivators. The impending destruction of the party is the will of Heaven. Dafa students are simply helping people to clearly see the evil nature of the CCP so they won't be fooled by its lies and become hostile toward Falun Gong, and so they'll quit the evil, criminal party for their own safety. If not for the efforts of Dafa disciples these people might go down with the evil party.
The end of the CCP's evil spirit is near. No matter what tactics the CCP employs or what lies it spreads, it won't escape its fate.
