(Minghui.org) Learning that a former classmate who'd had a stroke was hospitalized, I bought some presents and went to visit him.

I inquired about his health and then naturally shifted the topic to Falun Gong.

This friend of mine had trouble understanding why practitioners had "attacked" the Zhongnanhai Compound and had to set themselves on fire on Tiananmen Square. I said that these were lies fabricated by the Chinese Communist Party for the sole purpose of deceiving people.

He was still puzzled after I explained to him what had really happened behind those incidents, asking, “Then why did the Party decide to persecute Falun Gong?”

I replied, “Well, that's because Falun Gong believes in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance while the Party promotes Deceit-Evil-Strife. The Party couldn't stand the fact that more people practiced Falun Gong than were members of the Party. Unable to shake the fear that it was losing ground, Jiang Zemin launched the persecution.”

Having been influenced by the Party culture for more than 60 years, my dear friend was upset by this, and responded with emotion, “How can you say that? Show me the evidence. If the Party were indeed like that, what kind of Party would it be?”

When I brought up the facts about the Party promoting violence, atheism, and totalitarianism to maintain its rule since it came to power, my friend wasn't convinced in the least. He said, “That's all old news, and I experienced it all myself. But the new fact is that the Party has been promoting economic reform in recent years and it is getting better and better.”

I stopped him, “No, the Party isn't changing for the better. It is actually getting worse and worse, because its Deceit-Evil-Strife nature hasn't changed a bit.”

He interjected, “Why are you so sure?”

I asked him, “Do you think Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good or Deceit-Evil-Strife is good?” He admitted, of course, that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance was good.

I continued, “Then why does the Party do everything in its power to promote Deceit-Evil-Strife and suppress Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance?”

He couldn't see how the Party was promoting Deceit-Evil-Strife and suppressing Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, so I did a little experiment to help him understand.

First, I tried to send him two text messages reading “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Both times my cell phone indicated the messages were successfully sent out, but his cell phone remained silent with nothing showing.

Why? Because all the telecommunication companies are controlled by the Party, which does not allow people to believe in or spread the message of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. As a result, the telecommunication companies block the delivery of any such messages.

Then I created a third message reading “Deceit-Evil-Strife” and hit the send button. His cell phone immediately sounded an alert: New text message received.

Why? Because the Party's nature is Deceit-Evil-Strife. No wonder it allows the delivery of such message.

My dear friend was rendered speechless by my little experiment. He went on to try the same thing a few times and eventually came to understand the Party is nothing but evil. He concluded, “The Party is indeed doomed.”
