Thank You for the ‘Nine Commentaries,’ a Truly Priceless Treasure
Editor’s note: The Epoch Times here publishes direct translations of statements made by Chinese people in ‘renouncing’ the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its subordinate organizations. Statements such as these are submitted to a website affiliate of the Chinese version of The Epoch Times, Dajiyuan. The movement to renounce, withdraw from, or quit the CCP, called ‘tuidang’ in Chinese, began in late 2004, soon after The Epoch Times published the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, an editorial series that explores the nature and history of the CCP. The statements offer a rare and candid glimpse of history in the making: the Chinese people turning their backs on the Communist Party, choosing conscience over pragmatism, and peacefully ushering in a future China free of Party rule.
I thank the unknown friend who gave me the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party." Some of my friends and relatives have read the book. I have, too, and feel that it is truly priceless. It answered many previously unresolved mysteries for me, unexpectedly shined a light into the dark parts of my mind, and gradually helped me to realize the evil nature of the Communist Party!
The live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners for profit is a barbaric act which so angered me that words cannot describe it. I no longer hold any illusions about this evil party that is lower than a beast. I am ashamed that I was once a member of the Party!
Today I would like to use a small corner of The Epoch Times to tell my fellow workers in the educational sector and the members of the Communist Party: Any sort of illusion about this evil party encourages the brutalization of our great nation, our great people, the future generations and the future of our country! (I strongly recommend that everyone read the “Nine Commentaries.")
Quitting the CCP and disintegrating it is the only choice for Party members! To quit the CCP, dismantle communist China, save the spirit of our nation that is in grave peril, these are our missions, our responsibilities and our obligations! Quit the CCP if you care about your country! Quit the CCP for the love of yourself! Quit the CCP if you care about future generations!
“[I’d] rather die standing than live kneeling!” This principle shows the unyielding desire for justice as recorded in the magnificent historical scroll on which is written the long and heroic Chinese history and civilization! But the evil party, by stealing political power, mounted numerous political movements and manufactured bloody massacres that murdered 80 million innocent Chinese. This same party, which is now in the midst of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners, has only one purpose in mind – to force 1.3 billion Chinese to “live kneeling” and to kill the spirit of the Chinese people.
“No, our national spirit cannot perish!” True, my personal plea is so tiny and so insignificant. However, if 1.3 billion Chinese all stand up and say “No!” to the CCP, then it will be eliminated!
The existence of the CCP is our shame and the shame of humankind! I would like to declare solemnly: We quit the shameless, barbaric and inhuman evil party and its affiliated organizations!
Thirty-six of my family members are now quitting the CCP.
Hao Zhangsong, Hao Ersong, Hao Mei… all thirty-six
