[Series Note: The evil persecution against Falun Dafa and its practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) relies solely on fraud, lies, and deception. Allowing only its own voice in China, the CCP spreads propaganda [about Falun Dafa] that deceives and poisons countless living beings. During this unprecedentedly brutal persecution, Falun Dafa practitioners have been persistently clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa with immense compassion and tolerance. PureInsight.org now begins a series of articles containing short pieces that Falun Dafa practitioners have written to clarify the facts. We encourage everyone to submit your short pieces and share your wisdom.]
[PureInsight.org] My Friend, I feel compelled to speak up. Falun Gong cultivators have rewritten history, and have also inspired me to think more about life. I wonder: What kind of power has helped Falun Gong practitioners survive the brutal persecution for the past four years, and led them to become increasingly mature, rational, tenacious, wise and forceful? Though invisible, their righteous spirit is in fact most compelling, giving all kind-hearted and noble people hope, and reinforcing their faith in virtue. I feel extremely proud of the fact that such a glorious and profound historic movement is unfolding in the divine country of China. I look forward to the advent of the invisible righteous force in China soon.
Over the past four years of carefully covered-up brutal persecution, Falun Gong practitioners have persisted in their faith, and have displayed an enormous amount of courage and peace-loving nature. The fact that Falun Gong blesses its cultivators with pure righteousness, the fact that Falun Gong practitioners remain altruistic when persecution is forced upon them, and the fact that Falun Gong practitioners worldwide have been working tirelessly to end the persecution with peaceful means, has become a most magnificent model in the history of cultivation practices, and a strong contribution to restoring man's moral values.
The persecution against Falun Gong and its practitioners has lasted for four years. Why do geniune Falun Gong practitioners refuse to renounce "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance" even when they are facing a brutal persecution? Falun Gong practitioners come from different walks of life. Many of them are famous people from the intellectual community; there are also experts, scholars, high-ranking govenrment officials and so on. Could it possible that all of them have abandoned their wits and indiscriminatingly believe everything they are told? *
If you know any Falun Gong practitioner, please ask yourself this question: Among those genuine Falun Gong practitioners that you know of, can you find one that you wouldn't call nice? Can you find any resemblance between those Falun Gong practitioners portrayed in the Chinese media propaganda and those you personally know? Can you think of any valid reason why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) denies Falun Gong practitioners their Constitutional right to appeal for Falun Gong at the National Appeal Bureau? Can you think of any valid reason why the CCP forbids lawyers to defend Falun Gong practitioners? If it were correct or legal in any way to oppress Falun Gong, why should the CCP fear Chinese people talking about Falun Gong?
* The Chinese Communist Party has slandered Falun Gong practitioners as "engaging in superstition". This fact that many scholars practice Falun Gong indicates how the Communist Party deceives its citizens.
