Being Exposed Is What the Evil Thugs Fear Most
(Clearwisdom.net) In "Master's Comment on a Student's Article" on November 15, 2003, Master said,
"Exposing the wicked policemen and bad persons and publicizing their evil deeds is extremely effective at shocking and restraining those irrational, wicked people. At the same time, by clarifying the facts to the people on a local level it most directly exposes, and generates public awareness of, the wicked persecution. It is also a great way to save the people who have been poisoned and deceived by the lies. I hope all Dafa disciples and new students in Mainland China will do this well."
Master also said,
"Clarifying the truth, at the same time as exposing the evil, restrains the evil and lessens the persecution; and exposing the evil is at the same time purging from people's minds the poison of the evil's lies and deception--it is saving people. This is the grandest mercy, because in the future several billion people are to obtain the Fa, and if people's minds contain thoughts that resist Dafa, once this evil drama is over a large number of human beings will begin to be weeded out, and people who have a predestined relationship to obtain the Fa or even a larger number of innocent people might be weeded out." ("A Message" in Essentials for Further Advancement II)
However, in some areas practitioners have not been doing well in exposing the evil persecution. Some have not written down a description of the persecution they suffered and sent it to the Minghui (Chinese version of Clearwisdom) website. Some have done this but omitted many details, including what exactly happened, the severity, the losses, and the names of those responsible. Some have submitted brief descriptions to the section titled "Additional Persecution News from China," stating only practitioners' names and the arrest times.
I think articles such as these are not effective. Moreover, the old forces may laugh in other dimensions, saying, "These articles may be targeting someone else, not me." Also, in our dimension, the authorities are not scared since people do not know who committed those bad deeds. Therefore, these articles do not do a good job of clarifying the truth, exposing the evil, and saving sentient beings. So far, the reports in the "Accounts of Persecution" section on the Minghui website have only exposed a small portion of the persecution that has occurred over the past ten years. This is something we all, as practitioners, need to do better as one body.
So what caused this? Master said,
"But actually, why would they become foggy-headed? I think the key factor at work is fear. So to put it plainly, it is still due to their attachment, and everything else is an excuse." ("Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles")
Master also said, "But in reality, what human society takes to be truths are, from the perspective of the cosmos, inversions of truth;" ("The Closer to the End, the More Diligent You Should Be") However, many practitioners have not understood these words from Master and have not been able to use the Fa to observe the surrounding incidents.
In 2003, a retired policeman came to visit me. While chatting, he said, "I went to the Minghui website and did not find my name there." At that time, local practitioners had not exposed the persecution yet, and we had not heard that he had done any bad deeds. I did not think much about this since I did not have a computer myself, let alone the list of evil thugs on the Minghui website. It was later, and after being able to get onto the Internet, that I realized how fearful those evil thugs are of this list.
A local practitioner recently wrote down how he was persecuted over the past several years. The article included many details, including how he was persecuted and how much money was extorted from him, as well as detailed contact information for those responsible. One day after this article was published on the Minghui website, one of the evil thugs received phone calls from practitioners in Hong Kong, Macao, etc. as well as phone calls from practitioners inside of China.
From these experiences, we can tell that the authorities are truly fearful of their bad deeds being exposed since they know they did wrong. Master said, "The evil is finished and the environment has changed, so it is even more imperative that you not let up in cultivation." ("Greetings" on 5/17/09) We should hurry up and expose the persecution instead of leaving regrets for the future.
