While the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) refers to it as the National Day, many Chinese refer to October 1 as the nation’s “day of mourning”. In just over 60 years since the CCP’s inception on October 1, 1949, traditional Chinese culture has been all but destroyed, alongside spiritual beliefs, social morality and the living environment.
Today’s National Day marked a new milestone—the beginning of the CCP’s demise. More than 100 million people have renounced their ties with the CCP. The U.S. Congress recently proposed two motions to support this phenomenon of Chinese people quitting the Party, and called for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong to make way for a free China.
The publication of the editorial Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in 2004 by the Chinese-language Epoch Times sparked a grassroots social movement known in Chinese as “Tuidang”, which translates to “quit the Party”. As of August 7, 2011, the number of Chinese who quit reached 100 million.
According to the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP, many who quit the CCP so far include high-ranking officials, such as those from the State Council, ministries, National People’s Congress members, the Central Party School, and provincial and municipal cadres.
“I am sorry to have been a criminal! I am sorry, and I hope the CCP disappears soon,” wrote a state department official in his Tuidang statement.
“Enough is enough. Today I formally declare I have nothing to do with them [the CCP]. I was a reporter at a television station and, for many years, I saw their hypocrisy. Under the propaganda and lies, I was deceived by the CCP. Now I will have nothing to do with them,” wrote a reporter from China Central Television (CCTV).
“This is undoubtedly a feat that will inspire more Chinese to join the movement,” Yi Rong, chairperson of the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP, commented on the milestone of 100 million.
Yi believes that the CCP is the root cause of all the miseries of the Chinese nation today, and that only by disintegrating the CCP in this peaceful way, can Chinese people have a new life.
She commented that the CCP had completely subverted traditional values of Chinese society, systematically reforming and eliminating traditional spiritual beliefs such as Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism, and replacing them with atheism, materialism, and the philosophy of struggle.
Speaking at the rally in Hong Kong on October 1, 2011, Yi appealed to fellow Chinese to actively spread the Nine Commentaries and help more Chinese people declare the Three Withdrawals (that is, by renouncing ties with the CCP, the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers), expose the CCP’s crimes, and destroy all of the CCP’s propaganda.
With wisdom and courage, Chinese people can peacefully disintegrate the CCP and welcome a new and free China.
US Senate Supports the Tuidang Movement
On Jul. 13, 2011, the US Senate proposed Resolution 232—the first Senate resolution to recognize the Tuidang (Quit the Chinese Communist Party) movement in China, whereby large numbers of citizens are renouncing their ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliates.
Res. 232 was also the first Senate resolution to support Falun Gong directly, as it condemns the CCP’s brutal repression against the spiritual discipline, which is based on the principles of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance.
Subsequently, on Sep. 23, eight members of the US House of Representatives proposed for Motion 416, which contained similar points with that of Resolution 232.
“This year’s National Day has a huge background. From a global point of view, all kinds of effects of communism are being cleaned up to varying degrees,” said Li Dayong, chief executive of the Global Center for Quitting the CCP.
“This year marks the great new situation that has taken shape in the CCP on a national day so that this year’s chairperson of the Central Committee for Quitting the Party, Yi Rong, suggests that this month be regarded as the month of disintegration of the CCP. This is very good, and it is precisely in line with the current environment,” said Li.
Cleaning Up Party Culture Globally is Fundamental
Professor Niesen, director of the Department of Catholic University of the United States, said in an interview that the act of removing Party Culture and renouncing the CCP and its affiliates are epic phenomena that surpass the disintegration of the Soviet Communist Party 20 years ago.
“Two or three decades ago, the communist system of Poland in Eastern Europe collapsed. At that time, the political system was disintegrated and the Communist Party in power collapsed. The issue of a political power was solved, but the party culture stayed on,” Niesen said.
“Thus, for two decades, people have to clean up what was left behind, including eliminating communist’s logic of thinking, statues of the Communist leaders, the Communist Party’s books and logos, and slogans on streets, but also rewriting textbooks and so on,” he added.
“The CCP is currently the largest group. The Chinese people go further than Europeans in
carrying out a full-scale de-communism effort while the CCP is still in power,” Niesen analyzed, adding that this will mark the recovery of the Chinese people’s conscience. In the process, Chinese people will realize the damage the CCP has inflicted upon China, including China’s cultural history, value system, environment and social system.
“If the Chinese people want to regain their conscience and morality, they must do the same to eliminate the fundamental elements of the CCP’s party culture,” Niesen observed.
The CCP Destroys Chinese Traditional Culture and Outputs Party Culture
Recently, in the U.S. capital, the so-called “Chinese Culture Festival” was hosted at the Kennedy Center for a month, and on stage were Cultural Revolution performances such as “Red Detachment of Women” and “Lao She Teahouse”.
“These are all brainwashing programs, which are exported to the United States as culture and art, so it gives a confusing effect on Chinese culture,” Professor Niesen said. He added that now the CCP collects superficial aspects of Chinese culture and exports them overseas. Mainland Chinese people are now generally unclear about what is Chinese culture. For example, it has a Confucius Institute abroad; it does not really advocate the teachings of Confucius and Mencius, but uses it as a signboard.
Li Dayong commented that the CCP cannot survive under the cultural traditions. Therefore, in order to survive, it systematically eliminates the Chinese divine culture and substitutes it with the party culture.
Meanwhile, the CCP continues to undermine Chinese traditional culture, including history, traditional values and family ethics. However, the most precious and quintessential part of Chinese culture has been preserved in Taiwan. And now, New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts is very clearly demonstrating the full restoration of the traditional Chinese culture, a semi-divine culture. The restoration of traditional culture is also playing a role in disintegrating the CCP.
Atheism of the CCP Infiltrates and Controls the Mainland Religions
In June 2011, mainland media reported that in cities such as Huaian in Jiangsu and Xichang in Sichuan Province, the five major religions (Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Catholicism, and Christianity) held concerts together. Netizens were strongly opposed to the events. They commented: “Monks are supposed to avoid attachments to this mundane world, but now they are singing the “Red Songs” and holding red flags. Only in China, can such a farce occur”.
Dr Li Xiangchun, spokesman for the Global Center for Quitting the CCP, explained that because the Communist Party is atheist, it will always be against religions and seek to eliminate them. The CCP has persecuted religions more effectively than any other coutnries. It knows Chinese people respect Buddhism and Taoism very much, so it adopted a devious strategy to control religions. Today, the CCP infiltrates religious organizations and temples by dispatching party members as spies to pose as bishops and priests to control religions.
“During the Cultural Revolution, the CCP also destroyed a large number of temples, scriptures, and suppressed Falun Gong in the recent two decades. Falun Gong is not a religion, but followers believe in the existence of a Creator,” Dr Li said.
“For that reason, the CCP sees Falun Gong as its greatest threat and takes on extreme measures to persecute it, and even harvests organs from Falun Gong practitioners. The CCP has always followed its old policies in the persecution of religions but its methods are even more deceptive than Communist parties in all other countries,” he added.
