1. Changes on "In Reference to a Prophecy"

Old:

As to the sentence "before and after Mars reigns...," it means to say that [Karl] Marx is ruling the world before and after the year 1999. Actually, not only communist societies are now practicing Marxism. The social welfare system and its kin adopted by the developed countries of the world are also communist things within capitalism. Those appear to be free societies, yet it seems that the whole world is in fact practicing communism. People who have come from communist states to the developed countries in the West share one impression: "It feels like communism here, except they don't advocate violent revolution."

With regard to the last part, "in the name of bringing people happiness," this refers to the communist idea of liberating all of humankind, as well as to Western society's sustaining social welfare through heavy taxation.

2. Changes on "Deciphering the Last Three Stanzas of the Plum Blossom Poem"

Old:

Explanation: Things in the world have always been like a chess game, with the international alliance of communist countries as one side and free societies as the other side. Ten years ago, the game had already come to the point of defeat for the communist countries' side.

New:

Note: 3 places changed.

Old:

Explanation: The international alliance of communist countries has completely disintegrated. Ninety percent of its countries abandoned communism. And that truly spelled imminent disaster for the Communist party.

New:

Note: 4 places changed.

Old:

Explanation: The Soviet Union was like a leopard. The communist system has disintegrated, but on the surface its skin remains, and the Chinese government has inherited it. [You can say this] because today's Chinese people, too, no longer believe in communism, and it's merely that those in power in China want to use the form of communism to maintain their regime.

Old:

Explanation: China's current leaders themselves don't believe in the Communist party, either. Their specific purpose is to use the superficial form of the Communist party to keep hold of power. That's why they do everything possible to disguise the false, so-called "great situation." No matter how beautiful the "best autumn scenery" is (which is also the party's final moment), autumn scenery naturally doesn't last long. Chang'an2 also refers to China's capital, and here it refers to China in a general sense.

Explanation: In the lowest dimension of the heavens,4 China's Communist party manifests as an evil red dragon. This line alludes to the "June 4th" incident5 in which students and many others were massacred in Tiananmen Square after appealing to the government.

3. Changes on "Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A."

Old:

It's hard to save today's people. Sometimes I jokingly say to you: when you tell them that Dafa is good, after you talk to them for quite a while, they say, "Yes, Dafa is good, I know. But the Communist Party gives me money, so I'm not against them, either." What they're implying is, "Even though you are good, I'm not against the Communist Party." This is caused by the evil's propaganda in its persecution of Dafa, and it is a means they've used often to deceive the people of the world. We've never said that we are against the Communist Party. It's the evil's chief wretch in the human world who spreads nonsense that "the Communist Party has to defeat Falun Gong"--he's misleading people.

Old::

If you aren't against the Communist Party, that's fine, if you aren't against so and so, that's fine, but I'll tell you this: don't be against Dafa.

New:

Old:

We're not interested in political power, and we don't want to overthrow your Communist Party. It's the evil's chief wretch in the human world who brought down the Communist Party itself while using the Communist Party in this persecution. Looking back, isn't that true? It wasn't us who was attacking it, it brought itself down. He is using the Communist Party, using the country, and using the government to persecute Falun Gong. Gods don't allow this. You said that "the Communist Party has to defeat Falun Gong." How could Gods allow that? How could the Communist Party defeat the Law of the cosmos?

4. Changes on "We Are Not 'Getting Political'"

Old:

With regard to the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP),

Old:

Under the influence of the Party's culture, whenever foreign countries are brought up, the basis of these people's thinking is "those capitalist countries that oppose the Communist Party."

Old:

Yet when the Chinese people curse the CCP, their opposition to that party is still within the context of the consciousness created by that same party's culture, and they are in fact still viewing the Party from within the Party's culture. Some people even have the mentality of, "How could China exist without the CCP?" But over the 5000 years of Chinese history, which dynasty wasn't followed by a new one after its fall? And haven't the formerly Communist nations of Eastern Europe done just fine since their regimes collapsed?

Old:

After The Epoch Times carried the "Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party," the CCP again started cooking up stories and telling lies, alleging that, "Falun Gong is getting political." The fact is, whoever has something to say about the Party will be called "getting political," and that is in turn used to deceive the Chinese people. Actually, the Chinese people are fearful of and attach a negative sense to "getting involved with politics" because of the very Party-culture that the Party has instilled in them. Anywhere but in a Communist nation being a "politician" would seem a rather elite designation.

then we might as well spell things out completely--like what Falun Gong is, what the CCP is, and why the CCP wants to persecute Falun Gong. As for what Falun Gong is, Dafa disciples have explained that to the world's people in their all-out efforts to clarify the facts, and people the world over have come to understand. Then what's left is to help the world's people see what the Communist Party is about and why it persecutes Falun Gong.

In order to prevent misunderstandings by those who have lost their way in the Party's culture, I told Dafa disciples in Mainland China not to incorporate the "Nine Commentaries" as they clarify the truth. But the Fa-rectification is progressing rapidly and the circumstances in which Dafa disciples validate the Fa are changing. Recently the CCP's lies and propaganda have again been pushing fabrications such as the "self-immolation" and been spreading fake versions of the "Nine Commentaries" so as to further poison the minds of the world's people. This has created more obstacles for clarifying the truth and saving the world's people. And so, to have the world's people be aware of that vile party's nature and why it has persecuted Dafa disciples, it has become necessary for people to learn about the "Nine Commentaries."

Old:

Actually, nowadays is there a single Chinese person who still believes in Communism? Even between that evil ringleader and the current Central Committee of the CCP you can't find a single person who really believes in the Communist Party. The moment the Party and that evil ringleader exclaimed that they wanted to "defeat Falun Gong," the gods gave the verdict that the Party must be dissolved and destroyed. At present the gods are comprehensively destroying all of the Party's factors. Who in their right mind would want to now, at this final juncture, be the scapegoat for all the crimes committed by the Communist Party over the last one-hundred-plus years? Well, somebody is about to end up bearing all the blame for the Communist Party's crimes, and [the fact that he risked this situation] must be the result of his having been intoxicated by political power. In reality, though, the exposing of the Communist evil spirit is not directed at certain people. The "Nine Commentaries" aim to save all beings whose minds have been poisoned by the evil, which includes Communist Party members, those in the CCP's most powerful organs, and the common people. The goal is to help beings from all walks of life see clearly the factors behind the Communist Party.

5. About "Teaching the Fa at the Meeting with Asia-Pacific Students"

Old:

Back when Communism came along, weren't people fanatical about it for a while, and didn't a lot of people think it was society making progress?

No change.
