Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts to Overcome Internet Censorship
(Minghui.org) As Falun Dafa practitioners, we have been clarifying the truth to people in various ways for many years. I think one of the biggest obstacles preventing people in China from learning the truth is internet censorship. If people can access the internet freely, most will learn the truth and become awakened by themselves. Thus, I believe internet censorship is the most important way that the old forces utilize to prevent more people from being saved.
“When we break this blockade we are negating the old forces' arrangements.” (Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Lantern Festival)
I think that while sending forth righteous thoughts, we can add a thought to break through the internet censorship. The more practitioners join, the better. At the same time, we should continue to support fellow practitioners' efforts to develop more advanced technology to bypass the internet firewall.
I didn’t find many articles on Minghui.org about bypassing the internet firewall, probably because we didn't pay much attention to this problem. There is one older article published in 2007 that I found very inspiring and share with everyone here.
In the article, the practitioner said he couldn't access the Minghui.org website for a few days. While he was trying to download and install Freegate (an anti-censorship software), he was sending forth righteous thoughts at the same time. Then he realized something: why did he only think of bypassing the internet firewall instead of disabling the internet censorship? He said that practitioners should not admit the existence of the internet censorship at all.
The practitioner concluded, “When people have freedom to access all information, the Chinese Communist Party wouldn't be able to sustain their lies, and the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners wouldn't continue. Thus, it is important for fellow practitioners to send forth righteous thoughts together to eliminate the evil factors behind internet censorship.”
I echo the practitioner's suggestion to send forth righteous thoughts to remove whatever factors lie behind the internet censorship. It is my hope that we practitioners work together to break through the internet blockade.
