What Did the CCP Gain from Persecuting Falun Gong?

[PureInsight.org] In July 1999, the CCP used the power of the one-third of the country’s financial resources to launch a vigorous persecution campaign against Falun Gong by mobilizing all state machinery including the military, diplomacy, justice, and propaganda media. Twenty-two years have passed, and we can’t help asking, what has the CCP achieved in this repressive campaign with such a huge amount of original capital?

1. Officials Are More Corrupt

Having both ability and political integrity has always been the way in ancient and modern societies to select and appoint leaders. However, for a long time after the Chinese Communist Party ruled the government, the more revolutionary the more advanced. When Jiang Zemin was in power, the officialdom of the Communist Party of China was getting more and more corrupt, and it was rising at the same time. For example, Guo Boxiong and Xu Caihou, who had received billions of bribes in the army, were promoted by Jiang Zemin to vice chairmen of the Military Commission. After Jiang Zemin suppressed Falun Gong in 1999, the CCP’s officialdom has adopted the suppression of Falun Gong as a new standard of employment. Whoever supports the suppression of Falun Gong, and has achieved results in the suppression of Falun Gong, which region has arrested more Falun Gong practitioners, has been sentenced to re-education through hard labor, which region has a high conversion rate of Falun Gong practitioners, and which region does not have petitioners, Jiang Zemin would promote the officials there.

Zhou Yongkang, a scumbag among the people, was promoted by Jiang Zemin from Minister of Public Security to a high-ranking official of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CCP Central Committee and secretary of the Political and Legal Committee of the CCP Central Committee for acting as a vanguard in the suppression of Falun Gong. The former mayor of Dalian, Bo Xilai, was nominated by Jiang Zemin as governor of Liaoning province and minister of commerce due to the frenzied persecution of Falun Gong. On the contrary, where the suppression of Falun Gong does not take the initiative and is not active, they will be criticized and warned, or even be dismissed and demoted. In order to protect officials and make money, officials at all levels of the Communist Party of China did not hesitate to sell their conscience to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. Corrupt officials at all levels have become more dehumanized after the suppression of Falun Gong. Officials at all levels of the CCP who were originally corrupted have lost their humanity and increased bloodiness and become even more corrupted.

2. The Economic Crisis Worsens

Before the CCP suppressed Falun Gong, most of the 32 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) in the country, including Northeast, Northwest, North China, and Southwest, were in a state of severe financial debt. The CCP’s fiscal revenue mainly comes from monopoly industries such as tariffs, tobacco, and finance, as well as open coastal provinces such as Jiangsu and Zhejiang. In order to maintain the domestic economic balance, the central government had to allocate a large part of its fiscal revenue to those provinces that suffered economic losses. Therefore, the CCP's fiscal revenue is also in a state of debt that is barely maintained.

In July 1999, after the CCP began to suppress Falun gong in an all-round way, the country rapidly expanded prisons and labor camps, and increased the purchase of international media and governments, politicians, consortia, and organizations from the international community in order to prevent Falun Gong practitioners from petitioning. The CCP used tens of millions of people to monitor, interrogate or arrest Falun Gong practitioners in communities, streets, highways, stations, piers, airports, and key areas. For a long period of time, only the Beijing Tiananmen Police Station would spend several million yuan per day to arrest Falun Gong practitioners who appeal to central government. How much money will it have to spend in this place alone in the past 22 years? So how much has the total cost of persecuting Falun Gong spent in the country over the past 22 years? What a huge and astonishing astronomical number! If these funds are used to develop the economy or invest in the construction of the country, how much benefit will it bring to the country and the people, on the contrary, what loss and harm will it cause to the national economy?

According to the CCP’s internal disclosure, the CCP spent almost one third of the state’s fiscal revenue during its peak period of suppressing Falun Gong. A CCP official publicly stated in a speech at Masanjia Correctional Center in Liaoning that the cost of suppressing Falun Gong has exceeded the cost of a large-scale war. Therefore, the suppression of Falun Gong launched by the CCP greatly increased the financial burden of the CCP government, undermined the country's economic development and reform and opening up, caused the CCP's economic crisis to aggravate, and paved the way for the disintegration of its regime.

3. The Livelihood of People Is Getting More Difficult

"Take it from the people and use it for the people" This is the slogan that the CCP has always promoted when it calls on citizens and companies to consciously pay taxes to the CCP government. Objectively speaking, for the CCP’s own survival, apart from spending its fiscal revenues on national public officials’ expenditures and military expenditures, it also spends a portion of its funds on infrastructure construction and state institutional expenditures each year to boost domestic economic growth. And relatively improve the quality of life of the people in order to achieve the role of maintaining their own rule. However, after the CCP suppressed Falun Gong, it consumed a huge amount of national finance. The expenditures of civil servants and defense expenditures cannot be reduced. The funding gap can only be reduced from the state's basic investment and institutional expenditures and is supplemented by continuous issuance of national debt deficit. This has greatly reduced domestic employment opportunities, and the economic driving force has been significantly reduced. The ultimate performance is that the income of ordinary people has been significantly reduced, and people's lives have become more difficult.

At an important meeting held in 2020, Premier Li Keqiang revealed to the world a reliable data that was unknown in the past: 600 million people in China have an average monthly income of only RMB 1,000, and 900 million people have an average monthly income of only RMB 2,000, facing the high domestic prices, facing the four mountains of education, medical care, pension, and housing that are pressing on the people, the difficulty of life for the Chinese people can be imagined! Therefore, it has to be said that the suppression of Falun Gong launched by the CCP is an important reason why people's lives have become more difficult.

4. Morality Is Even More Depraved

"King Wu likes swordsman, so his people have more scars; King Chu likes a thin waist, so his people starve to death." The ruler's likes, dislikes and value orientation will inevitably directly affect officials and the people. As we all know, true Falun Gong practitioners are sincere, kind and tolerant, and what they bring to society is the display of high standards of morality. However, these people with high morals have not received the respect of the government and society. On the contrary, they have been demonized by the CCP into abnormal members. They have been brutally persecuted and suppressed by the CCP for 22 years. The kind Falun Gong practitioners only insisted on their own good behavior but  were expelled from public office, laid-off, unemployed, ransacked, tortured, detained, re-education through forced labor and sentenced. Some even lost their lives with their organs harvested. The CCP’s cruel repression and the unreasonable persecution of Dafa practitioners who only seek to cultivate a good heart is to declare to the people of the whole country that under the CCP’s rule, good people break the law and good people are guilty. They must transform good people into bad people. Let the bad guys persecute the good guys. During the crackdown, some local officials publicly stated, "You can eat, drink, prostitute and gamble, but you can't practice Falun Gong."

Since the good people are persecuted and the bad people are left unattended, ordinary people who do not practice have been led to believe neither in the CCP nor in other beliefs. In order to protect themselves and avoid the CCP’s persecution, they can only choose not to talk about morals. They do not talk about conscience and no longer talk about faith. They have become more focused on money, and the pursuit and enjoyment of material desires have become their only life creed. Therefore, after the CCP suppressed Falun Gong, the morality of the entire society has declined sharply, and the rapid decline in morality has brought chaos to the entire society. The political and economic decline of the entire country has objectively led to the acceleration of the disintegration of the CCP. 

5. Falun Gong Is Stronger

When the CCP suppressed Falun Gong in 1999, a total of 100 million people practiced in China. People from more than 30 countries and regions are practicing. After the persecution, most Falun Gong practitioners in China not only did not give up their beliefs, but also withstood the evil persecution of the CCP. They used slogans, leaflets, face-to-face clarification of the truth, television interruptions, telephone clarifications, mailing of truth materials, distribution of truth CDs, and use various methods such as commenting and persuading three withdrawals to tell the Chinese people about the beauty of Falun Dafa and the evil persecution by the CCP. Twenty-two years have passed. Not only did Falun Gong not be completely wiped out within three months (as the Chinese Communists Party boasted at that time), but instead has resulted in more people to understand the truth of the persecution. Some are openly or secretly protecting Dafa practitioners, and even some officials who had participated in the persecution of Dafa practitioners have now joined Falun Dafa practice.

A lie repeated a thousand times is still a lie. Although the CCP has used various methods to spread rumors and vilify Falun Gong internationally, after all kinds of truth-clarification by Dafa disciples all over the world, Falun Gong has spread worldwide. Today, people in more than 110 countries and regions around the world are practicing Falun Dafa.

Before the suppression, Falun Gong was awarded domestic awards such as the "Fringe Science Progress Award", "Star Gong", and "The Most Popular Qigong Master". After the suppression, Falun Gong won dozens of international government awards at all levels. More than 3,000 praises from parliaments and international organizations. At the beginning of the crackdown, both the Chinese people and the international community were affected by the CCP’s rumors, which resulted in hostility or misunderstanding of Falun Gong and its practitioners. Nowadays, the Chinese people and the people of other countries not only understand the truth about the CCP’s unreasonable persecution of Falun Gong, but there are already more than 300 million people publicly declared that they would withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organization. At the beginning of the suppression, the CCP used thousands of domestic and international media and networks to attack Falun Gong. Nowadays, Dafa disciples themselves have established Minghui.org, Zhengjian.org, NTDTV, The Epoch Times, Minghui Radio, Shen Yun Performing Arts and other media to spread the beauty of Falun Dafa and the evil persecution by the CCP throughout the world. At the beginning of the suppression, the CCP throw Dafa disciples into prisons and forced labor camp, correctional institutions, detention centers, mental hospitals, etc. Nowadays, Dafa disciples have taken the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong’s principal culprits, such as Jiang Zemin, Zhou Yongkang, Luo Gan, Bo Xilai, Li Lanqing, and Su Rong, in many national courts or internationally. The courts have conducted criminal and civil prosecutions and many have already rendered guilty verdicts. In addition, international organizations have records of hundreds of thousands of evil doers who persecuted Falun Gong and vowed to investigate those evil doers. The CCP’s crimes will be documented until these people are brought to justice. In the past, the CCP framed Falun Gong as the X religion. Now, the CCP is classified as a criminal group by the International Independent People’s Court in the United Kingdom. Western countries led by the United States are the first to propose that members of the CCP will not be allowed to enter the United States and other Western countries.

In the past 22 years, Falun Gong has become stronger and stronger. The CCP is now facing a crisis of embarrassment and on the verge of disintegration any time. The former leader of the CCP, Jiang Zemin, is now facing the punishment of being judged by the world.
