A Tribute to the Fourth Anniversary of ‘The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party’

November 20, 2008 Updated: November 23, 2008

In November 2004, The Epoch Times published a series of articles titled The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party (The Nine Commentaries), sparking a spiritual awakening in today’s China.

The Nine Commentaries has impacted people on many profound levels and has revealed to the Chinese people the truly evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). As a result, more and more Chinese people have quit the CCP, its Communist Youth League, and its Young Pioneers Team. The psychological burden caused by the evil party has been lifted from people’s shoulders.

As a matter of fact, people today publicly condemn the CCP, criticize corrupt party officials, and even gather in front of government office compounds shouting slogans such as "Down with the Communist Party." Such activities have never occurred previously under the CCP’s dictatorship.

The momentum of change in people’s understanding is gathering force like an avalanche. This can be seen from the comments of Internet users after: the protests of a reported 10,000 people in Weng’an County in Guizhou following accusations that police there had covered up the death of a 15-year-old girl; the gathering by 1,000 people outside a courthouse in Shanghai in October in support of Yang Jia , who had murdered six policeman after he had suffered severe mistreatment at the hands of police;  the exposure of how news of the contamination of Sanlu milk powder , which lead to the sickening of tens of thousands of babies, was withheld until after the Olympics had ended; and the exposure of the attempt by Party Secretary Lin Jiaxing to molest an eleven-year-old girl .

The awakening of the Chinese people has its historical and practical reasons. However, the impact of The Nine Commentaries cannot be ignored.

The Nine Commentaries has exposed the brutal dictatorship under which the Chinese people were forced to live since the CCP came to power in 1949. The facts quoted in the commentaries tell the story of the real life experiences of suffering and torture of the Chinese people under the CCP.

The simple language and logic of these articles have incredible strength. Today, the continued evil activities of the CCP only corroborate the critiques of the The Nine Commentaries and the lies of the party.

Spiritual Awakening

Since the publication of The Nine Commentaries in November 2004, 45 million Chinese have renounced their membership in the CCP and its affiliated organizations on the Epoch Times website set up for resigning from the Party . The Nine Commentaries has flooded China in a short period of time, forming a massive wave of people quitting the CCP.

"Having been deceived by the CCP over the years, I became a member of this evil party. I am fortunate that I have been awakened by ‘The Nine Commentaries’ and realized that the CCP is the most inhumane power in the history of mankind.

“It retains its hold on power by using violence to create fear in people. It plunders the wealth of others and controls the minds of its people. I am almost 50 years old. I've gone through almost all of the disastrous events since the CCP came to power in 1949.

“Every fact cited in the The Nine Commentaries is true. I regret that I ever joined the party. I now solemnly declare that I quit the CCP."

The above is a message left by Xian Zheng on the website for withdrawing from the Party on April 14, 2005. Around thirty to forty thousand similar statements are posted on this website everyday.

This event has become an irreversible tide of history, even though the CCP has put tight controls on the Internet and made every effort to intimidate the volunteers who work at the “Quitting the CCP Centers” set up in cities around the world.  

Chinese from every station in life, from big city dwellers to villagers, from the masses of workers, farmers, and intellectuals to high-level CCP officials, from leaders of state-owned companies to the heads of the 610 organizations (an organization with branches at every level of government formed to persecute Falun Gong practitioners), have renounced the CCP after they have learned about its true evil nature by reading “The Nine Commentaries.”

The book is being discussed and passed on voluntarily by millions of Chinese people. For instance, the story of The Nine Commentaries can be found written on Chinese currency or on utility poles and walls; it is now found throughout the vast land of China.

The Nine Commentaries are not just nine editorials anymore. They have become a spiritual awakening movement in which tens of millions of Chinese voluntarily participate.

This book has not only set off the wave of quitting the CCP, but it has also brought light to the dark sky under which the CCP had forced the Chinese people to live. The tactics of terror carefully orchestrated by the CCP for years are gradually diminishing.

Moving the World

Chinese people voiced their discontent on blogs when the uprising took place in Weng’an County of Guizhou Province this June. They wrote: "Expel the CCP, Revive traditional China." "Believe ourselves and rebuild our new Great Wall. Drive the Communist Party back to Siberia, Russia." "Love the people, not the party." "Down with fascism. Freedom belongs to the people."

These simple words foretell the complete abandonment of the CCP and the gradual awakening from the CCP's lies. We are witnessing the beginning of a new era!

“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it and I shall move the world.” These famous words of the ancient Greek scientist Archimedes apply perfectly for the current situation in China.

The Nine Commentaries are becoming the spiritual fulcrum of the Chinese people. They are moving a dark empire based on the violence and lies of communism. They are hoping for a brand new world with brightness, sincerity and tolerance.

This is why we are paying tribute to The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party on its fourth anniversary of publication.
