Preface to an editorial on communism’s plot to destroy humanity
Since communism first appeared in the Soviet Union, 100 years have passed. Within the span of a century, communism has caused more than 100 million unnatural deaths. Since communism first appeared on Earth, it has boldly challenged gods for the right to rule over human beings. In “The Internationale,” the French socialist anthem created by Paris Commune member Eugène Edine Pottier, the lyrics declared: “There has never been any savior of the world,” and “The old world, it shall be destroyed.”
Where did communism come from? Why did it appear in the universe? What is the fundamental nature of communism? What will be its fate? People have speculated about these questions. Now, it is time to uncover the answers.
The essence of communism is that it is a specter. It is made up of hatred and degenerate elements of the universe. It has a deep hatred for human beings and wants to destroy them. It is not satisfied with killing a man’s flesh body alone; after all, life does not terminate with the death of the physical body—people’s souls reincarnate. But when a person has absolutely abandoned his sense of morality, his soul will be completely eliminated. That is the ultimate, most terrifying death. Dragging humanity toward the abyss of eternal damnation is what this communist specter wants to achieve.
After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the communist alliance of the Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc soon collapsed. It seemed like the entire world believed the Cold War had ended, and communist ideology was facing its utter demise. The remaining communist countries felt they were about to fall at any moment.
The truth is, on the contrary, the original decree of communist ideology and communism—with a face-lift—have continued to wreak havoc on the world. Countries have openly declared that they are socialist nations, including China, North Korea, Cuba, and Vietnam. Many other countries in Africa and South America have ruled under the guise of a republic or a democratic nation, but are in fact practicing socialism. What’s more, there are also countries in Europe and North America that are not aware how their values have been eroded by communism.
Whether it has expanded its influence with violence or infiltrated society in secrecy, the communist specter has resorted to destroying culture—established by the Creator to ultimately save people—as its way of annihilating mankind.
After losing their culture, humanity will lose their standards for how to be human. In the eyes of gods, people will become mere animals covered in human skin—incapable of restraining themselves through morality—leading to their rapid descent toward depravity. They will be rendered unable to understand the heavenly message the Creator will reveal to save people. Consequently, people will lose their chance of being saved when calamity strikes. This is the biggest cataclysm awaiting all lives—to be forever destroyed—and the communist specter’s ultimate goal.
Bearing in mind how much gods treasure our lives, and how much gods deeply care for human beings, we have written the book “The Ultimate Goal of Communism,” to show people through systematic analysis how the communist specter is plotting to destroy mankind through the destruction of people’s culture and morality.
Different cultures around the world have their own folklore foretelling how gods will save humanity in the last days. Humans have now come to a critical moment in the history of the universe. The biggest stumbling block on their path to salvation is the evil cult that is communism. As a result, we believe, with great urgency, that we must thoroughly expose communism’s evil nature and its tactics—so that human beings, with their own conscience, can make their own judgment to abandon this evil cult, peacefully disintegrate communist organizations, systematically clean out communism’s evil elements, and finally welcome a new era for mankind.
The Epoch Times will soon publish the book in two parts, called “The Ultimate Goal of Communism: China Chapter” and “The Ultimate Goal of Communism: The World Chapter.” Please stay tuned.
This book is dedicated to every single person who cares about mankind’s destiny.
