On January 11, Ms. Sheng attended the DPA show in Toronto. She told the reporter, "The show not only restores the traditional Chinese culture and exposes the truth to the Chinese people, but also creates a new culture."
"It creates a new culture," she said, "and offers us a new cultural environment, a new way to think and a new enjoyment. Actually, if we want to get rid off the communist culture, we must have a new culture. Only in this new culture can we eliminate the old stuff. So, I think it is important that the DPA gives us such a new culture."
"Everybody who sees the show must agree that it has a pure beauty and profound philosophy," Sheng Xue said. "Today, Chinese people are living in the communist culture. People are being governed and controlled by this culture. They don't know how to break through it, and they don't know what the new way to live would be if they eliminate the communist culture."
"Although Chinese people have been living in the communist culture for a long time, deep in their hearts, they are still attracted to the traditional culture. The feeling for the traditional culture is never gone."
Sheng Xue believes that the DPA show not only restores the traditional culture, but also clears away the communist culture.
Speaking of the anti-persecution program in the show, Sheng Xue is glad that the show offers people a chance to know the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong. "Only after people know the truth, can they make the right decision," she said.
"To Chinese people, it is very important to know the truth," she said. "I believe that most people are just and kind. They have simply been deceived by the Communist Party, or threatened by them. They don't have a chance to learn the truth. After being deceived for a long time, some of them give up their right to know the truth."
Sheng Xue came to the show with a Chinese friend who came to Canada not long ago. He didn't know anything about the 10-year long persecution of Falun Gong. "So, letting people know the truth is the first step. The second step is for people to make the right choice," she said.
She expressed that the DPA show helps people to break through the communist "fog," and see a new and different world than the communist culture.
Sheng Xue said that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been trying very hard to promote the communist things in Western mainstream society. "When Westerners see the bad things in the Chinese society, they develop a bad impression of Chinese people," Ms. Sheng said. "The DPA show not only offers a chance to the overseas Chinese people, to enjoy their own culture, but also gives Westerners the chance to know what real Chinese culture is."
"In fact, many Westerners highly evaluated the show after watching it. It helps them to see the real China, which is different than the one they see through the communist culture," she said.
Sheng Xue has been a reporter for Radio Free Asia in Canada since 1997. Since 2005, she has been a reporter for Voice of Germany in North America. She has written many political reviews and has her own column in many newspapers. In 2000, she won two national awards for her reports on illegal Chinese migrants.
