Sorrow of Blind Obedience

[] People live in groups and influence each other. It is also easy for human beings to go with the trend. In fact, when people give up independent thinking and blindly follow the majority, their true self will get lost. Also, they will harm others and themselves.

In 1944, Hitler implemented the "Werewolf" plan and trained young people to become spies and saboteurs, instigating them to use arsenic and explosives to carry out sabotage behind the Allied front. On Feb 21, 1945, two boys, Franz and Herbert, who were "werewolves" were airdropped to the rear of the enemy troops in the Mount Eifel. Because the place where they were airdropped was too far away from the target, they were captured by U.S. patrols before they could start to sabotage.

After interrogation, they were sentenced to death for espionage by the U.S. Ninth Army Military Court. An American military officer, their defense lawyer, submitted a pardon application to the court, stating that they were only minor children. A few weeks later, they were notified that the pardon application had been rejected.

In their suicide note to parents, Franz wrote, “I do this with a deep desire to serve Germany, my motherland and my people.” Thirty-four days after their being executed, the Third Reich collapsed. Hitler, the leader they admired, committed suicide long ago.

On June 1, 1945, they died in the stern gunshots, with their blood flowing along their underage bodies and slowly soaking their motherland. Franz is 16-year-old and Herbert is aged 17. According to statistics, in Germany, more than one-third of people who were born between 1921 and 1925 died either on the battlefields of World War II or inside Germany.

They were young, simple and ignorant. They were deceived by Nazi lies, blindly following Nazi instructions. They had betrayed themselves, deceived the country and ruined their lives.

Whether was such an absurd and tragic incident only staged by Nazi Germany? No, as long as there’s dictatorship, lies and tyranny, there will be deception, brainwashing and persecution.

Since the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, CCP has tremendously defamed Falun Gong and deceived all Chinese people. CCP incited people’s hatred by brainwashing them. As a result, some people who were deceived by CCP have actively been involved in persecution of Falun Gong. According to incomplete statistics, thousands of Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted to death, which was confirmed by private channel. Also, a large number of practitioners were illegally detained and sentenced for their faith in Falun Gong. On top of that, some practitioners were sent to mental hospital to be persecuted to madness and disability. A huge number of practitioners’ organs were forcibly harvested even when they were still alive, whilst some were displaced and some practitioners’ families were broken.

Liu Chengjun, a Dafa disciple in Changchun, was illegally sentenced to 19-year imprisonment. During his detention in Ji Lin prison, he was subject to a wide range of torture methods and unjustly died on December 26, 2003 at Sino-Japanese Friendship Hospital in Changchun. Liu Chengjun's body was bleeding from seven orifices, and his thigh was cut and bleeding. In February 2011, Jiamusi Prison enforced strict control and violent transformation of Falun Gong practitioners. In fifteen days, Qin Yueming and two other practitioners were tortured to death. Qin Yueming who was put into a freezer was covered with wounds. His lips were bruised, his mouth and nose were bleeding, and his face looked terribly painful. The back of his right neck showed large redness and swelling.

The tragedies had been staged by Jiang Zemin, while CCP and Jiang Zemin were the culprit. However, if no one executed the persecution order, if no brutal beatings, Jiang Zemin will be unable to kill thousands of practitioners. Why such an ongoing brutal persecution? Because some people were turning the rudder at the sight of the wind. Anyone who have been involved in persecution reinforced the evil force and should be held accountable. Some people said, “As CCP offers me food, I do whatever CCP requests me to do.” Yet some people simply followed the trend. Some people reckoned that their work role was tracking, eavesdropping, and arrest. They unscrupulously tortured Falun Gong practitioners because they reckoned that they were backed by CCP.

Due to the blind obedience, these people become a stick for CCP to beat the innocent. They lost their conscience and failed to tell right from wrong, which has aggravated the persecution. The persecution is still ongoing, but when a righteous trial is staged, those who have persecuted Falun Gong will have to face the consequences.

Everyone has to be responsible for their deeds. Franz, who was only 16-year old and Herbert, aged only 17 were subject to death row penalty, though they were deceived by Nazi. Anyone who betray conscience and try to frame others are committing sins. Human beings should use their rationality to make a right choice.

When we’re at the crossroad of life, it’s crucial to make a correct choice. Should we choose to be compassionate, we can embrace a bright future. In the current chaotic time, if we choose to follow the evil and to be morally corrupt, we will go astray and fall into hell.

The story of Franz and Herbert is telling a principle: It’s terrible to have been brainwashed and to follow the madness and confusion. By doing so, you’re unable to seek any exemption.

In this human world, only when we utilise our conscience to discern right from wrong, can we remain noble and magnificent.
