Chinese Officials Visiting Taiwan Sneak ‘Nine Commentaries’ Into China

Many Chinese Communist officials, including officials from the central government, sneak copies of the Nine Commentaries from Taiwan into China, a Chinese tour guide told The Epoch Times.

First published in November 2004 as an editorial series by The Epoch Times, The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party is a comprehensive analysis of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) history and has triggered a tidal wave of Chinese people quitting their memberships in the CCP and its affiliated youth groups. Over 100 million Chinese have quit during the past seven years.

The following is a statement by A-Guang, a Chinese tour guide:

I am a tour guide, and I take people from mainland China to Taiwan. There are often people distributing copies of the Nine Commentaries at tourist spots in Taiwan. I always encourage the tourists from China to take them.

In 2005, a friend of mine in the U.S. told me about the Nine Commentaries. He said it was very well written and he wanted me to take a look at it. However, I could not find it in China.

In 2006, I went to Taiwan and a person gave me a special issue of the Nine Commentaries. After I was finished reading it, I felt so hot-blooded that I went to The Epoch Times’ office in Taiwan and quit the CCP with my real name.

I knew that the CCP exploits and enslaves the Chinese people. The people suffer a lot of bitterness. The official media glorifies the CCP, but in reality it is nothing but lies. When I see the officials being aloof and snobbish, and trampling on the people, I feel disgusted.

The CCP’s propaganda inundates the country, and the Chinese people are blinded by it. The propaganda also defames Falun Gong and prevents people from knowing what Falun Gong really is. I have a friend who has studied at Beijing Medical University and later went to Peking University. He told me that the kidneys and organs sold at the university-affiliated hospital were likely taken illegally from Falun Gong practitioners.

The Nine Commentaries systematically and coherently exposes the real face of the CCP. It reveals how the CCP’s tyranny preys on and enslaves the Chinese people and brings misery and brutality. After reading it, I had a deeper understanding of the CCP. The book says everything that I wanted to say. It is very well written and awakens the Chinese people.

As a tour guide, I know that many officials take the book back with them. I once had an official from the administration office of the State Council in my tour group. He seemed very snooty and praised the CCP all the time when we had group conversations. However, I saw him take the Nine Commentaries in Taiwan, and before we went back to China, he sneaked the book under his luggage and took it home.

Although he looked aloof on the outside, I felt that he was actually scared and feeling a sense of crisis. People like him probably know the nature of the CCP the best. They know that once they side with the wrong faction, they will soon be in trouble with the inter-clique struggles.

Some tourists from China were so deceived [by the CCP’s propaganda] that they talked about how people who practiced Falun Gong could become possessed. I asked every one of them, “Have you seen one with your own eyes?” They all said no. They simply repeated what they read in the CCP’s official mouthpiece media.

I would tell them that since they have now come to a democratic country, they should use their own eyes and brains to find out what Falun Gong is really like. In an overseas society, unlike in China, they can pick up and read any materials and decide for themselves which is good and which is bad.
