(Minghui.org) After the Minghui notice “What All Dafa Disciples Must Know” was published, I talked about it with a young practitioner who lives near me and asked him to delete WeChat. He said he couldn't because he had to use it to communicate with work.
My relatives also thought I was making up stories. They didn't believe anyone could be watching us and they thought I was overly suspicious. They talked about how convenient WeChat is and that it saves lots of time, because they don't have to walk to a shop to pay all their utilities. WeChat is their favorite thing because people can chat with their relatives all the time. There is nothing I can do about it, so I have to let them do as they please.
A few days ago I saw an article on Minghui about the enormous, damaging power of WeChat. It reminded me of something I learned over the summer. I decided to write it down in hopes that everyone might benefit.
On the evening of August 16, a young relative came to my home for dinner. He spoke to me about WeChat. He told me that, initially, he did not believe it was used to spy on the Chinese people, but now he believed it a hundred percent. I asked him why and he told me about one of his friend’s troubling experiences that stemmed from using WeChat.
His friend was a city police department officer. Chinese leader Xi Jinping came to our city last month and those officers were responsible for his security detail. None of them were allowed to go home before Xi came.
The wife of this police officer chatted with her relatives and friends via WeChat about this. She said something like, “I am so busy and tired these days. My husband hasn't been able to come home for many days because Xi Jinping is visiting the city. I have to handle everything at home.” She also named the hotel where Xi Jinping was staying and when he had left for an appointment, but her husband had not come home yet.
She did not realize that communicating on WeChat would lead to disaster for her family.
The head of the police department called the officer and told him that he had leaked national secrets to his wife regarding such sensitive issues as leaders visiting the city and that his wife had subsequently leaked this to their relatives and friends. They told him that the police department had decided to dismiss him from the force. They also told him to go home and self-reflect. Whether or not he is to be kicked out of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) or banned from any government work has yet to be determined. This officer was astounded and literally speechless when he heard the replay of his wife's recorded conversation.
My relative asked, “Why is the CCP so scared of its own people?”
He is young and knew nothing about what the CCP is really like. I told him it is an evil spirit and that it started to deceive the Chinese people, promising a good life, from the moment it seized power in China in 1949.
Many intellectuals and patriots were deceived and allied themselves with it. It took power using violence and manipulated the people to kill each other in one political movement after another. Its ultimate goal is to destroy humankind. It fears that, when the people see through its agenda, they will eliminate it, so it restrains the country's 1.3 billion citizens by luring them into a network with multiple monitoring abilities, such as WeChat, Tengsent QQ, text messages, voice records, video recordings, etc. It has all kinds of equipment and several million internet police monitoring us 24 hours a day. Whatever you read, say, or do will be monitored.
If a person says something the CCP does not agree with, one will be punished and even persecuted. No one in China, including the police and national leaders, have any privacy when it comes to the CCP. Everyone is being watched, monitored, and laughed at, so everyone should break away from the network.
My young relative then said, “This CCP is truly not a good thing. Why follow it—it will only lead us to destruction. It seems that I was right to quit it. It was the hundred percent right thing to do. I will not sell my soul anymore.”
