Thoughts About Persuading Chinese People to Renounce Their CCP Membership After Reading Articles from the Fifth Internet Experience Sharing Conference
(Clearwisdom.net) In November 2004, the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party," a book that systematically analyzes the Communist Party's origin, history, and essential nature, was first published. This triggered the wave of "three withdrawals," that is, Chinese people's withdrawing themselves from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the Communist Youth League, and the Communist Young Pioneers. Over forty-five million Chinese people have now declared their withdrawals on The Epoch Times website.
Because many Chinese people are used to the CCP's terror, there are indeed some people who have doubts about the fact that so many Chinese people have declared their withdrawals. However, from the several hundred articles that were shared during the Fifth Internet Experience Sharing Conference for Practitioners in China, one can see the traces of this great "three withdrawals" tide. With determination and infinite compassion, Falun Gong practitioners clarify the truth and persuade people to withdraw from the Party and its related organizations. Each and every withdrawal that was described in the experience-sharing articles is a moving story. It is these stories that have led to the tens of millions of Chinese people's breaking away from the CCP.
A Falun Gong practitioner who owns a clothing store said in her article titled "Be A Good Disciple," that she let every customer know the facts about the persecution. She also carries many truth-clarification materials with her, so that she can talk to people wherever she goes. She doesn't want to miss even one person. In her pure mind, there is nothing else but the salvation of all sentient beings. She is almost one hundred percent successful in convincing people to withdraw themselves from the Party and its related organizations. She has helped over ten thousand people to learn the facts of the persecution and declare their withdrawals.
In "Believing in Master and Dafa and Holding Up a Blue Sky," a practitioner from Yiyang City in China's Henan Province said that even during the Beijing Olympic Games (when the persecution of Falun Gong intensified), she didn't stop her efforts to persuade people to withdraw from the Party and its related organizations. She instead intensified her efforts to help more people declare their withdrawals. In one day she persuaded as many as thirty-two people to renounce the CCP. She has convinced several thousand people to declare their withdrawals over the past few years.
The article entitled "Clarifying the Facts No Matter It Is Windy or Raining, and Riding A Bicycle for Ten Thousand Li to Offer People Salvation" tells the story of Hebei Province practitioner Lin Xiaoming over the last seven years. He has spent neither holidays nor weekends for personal leisure. He has traveled by bicycle to every farmers' market, store, shop, street, and construction site to clarify the facts and persuade people to quit the Party. He later expanded his efforts to the markets and villages in surrounding regions that are ten, twenty, and thirty li (one li is about 0.3 mile) away from his home. Over the past several years, he has traveled over ten thousand li, and his bicycle tires have worn out three times. He has used six new tires. In half a day, he can persuade at least four to five people, and sometimes as many as over twenty people, to declare their withdrawals. So far, he has successfully persuaded over ten thousand people to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations.
A practitioner from Sichuan Province told, in the article titled "My Seven-Year Experience of Operating a Material Preparation Site," the story of how he had persuaded a policeman (who had persecuted practitioners) to quit the CCP. In one pamphlet, the practitioner exposed in detail the crimes that officials at the local brainwashing center had committed. The pamphlet was widely distributed in the local region. When one of the persecutors saw the pamphlet, he said to the practitioner, "You have put me on the list of evildoers." After several attempts by the practitioner to clarify the truth about the persecution, the policeman and his family members finally declared their withdrawals.
In the article entitled "How Have I Clarified the Facts of the Persecution in My Working Environment," a practitioner from Jilin Province described his experience of clarifying the facts to a colleague who was deceived by the CCP's lies and thus hated Falun Gong. His colleague spoke highly about his way of treating people. However, after learning that he practices Falun Gong, this colleague was so shocked that his jaw dropped open, "Ah, I could not imagine you are such a person! Which one is the true you? I want to understand you all over again!" The practitioner seriously said, "What you have seen is the true me. I have never disguised myself. After so long a time of staying together closely, why do you say you don't know what kind of person I am? What has made you harbor so much hatred? Why is the propaganda on television more believable than your own judgment?" The colleague responded, "You don't need to tell me these things. I don't want to listen. I don't want to think about it. In my life, there are too many unsatisfactory things. I wound rather see more of the good side." However, the practitioner had not given up on his colleague. He patiently clarified the facts to the colleague, and in the end the colleague declared his withdrawal.
In the article entitled "Going Through the Storms and Suffering Together On the Path of Cultivation, and the Husband and Wife Together Cultivating Diligently," the practitioners said that over the several years, they visited many relatives and friends. The main objective of their visits was to persuade them to quit the CCP and its related organizations. Now they have persuaded over one hundred relatives to declare their withdrawals. Additionally, they have also persuaded some familiar and unfamiliar persons to withdraw. The husband meets with many people. Among those who have declared their withdrawals under his persuasion, are presidents of state-owned enterprises, owners of private companies, technical people, workers, travelers, drivers, and more.
One practitioner said in his article entitled "Fully Display the Role of Coordination and Cooperation in the Fa Rectification" that in the past two years, many practitioners have clarified the facts to strangers face-to-face every day, regardless of whether they are in cities or the countryside, and regardless of whether they are on big streets or small lanes. This manner of truth-clarification is combined with distributing the truth-clarification materials in a more widespread manner, and distributing the Nine Commentaries and other materials inside residential buildings, dormitories, and neighborhoods. There are also practitioners who have gone to clarify the truth to the Political and Judicial Committee secretaries, 610 Office directors, and officials of public security, procuratorial, and judicial systems who had directly persecuted these practitioners. As a result, the cultivation environment has become relatively better.
Stories of clarifying the truth and advising people to declare the "three withdrawals" are endless.
Falun Gong practitioners believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. While facing the CCP's rascal policy of "one will be detained if one says that he will continue his cultivation, while one will be allowed to go home if one says that he will no longer practice," it may be enticing for "one to simply deceive the CCP by saying that one will no longer practice, and then go back home and practice secretly." However, this reflects a worldly interest that has been accepted by the worldly people. Numerous Falun Gong practitioners have chosen to speak out their inner voice to "continue practicing." Falun Gong practitioners have risked their lives and their family's happiness to seek the truth, and all their experience-sharing with others was from the bottom of their hearts. The stories they have told were all personal experiences.
Millions of Falun Gong practitioners have acted compassionately to persuade people to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations. This has resulted in the present situation of forty-five million Chinese having withdrawn from the CCP, the Communist Youth League, and the Communist Young Pioneers. In the future, there will certainly be even more people who will wake up and break away from the CCP. This trend will continue until the day when the CCP crumbles.
