Recently, several reports about Falun Gong \u201caffiliated" media companies and social media campaigns have mischaracterized these initiatives and their content, as representing Falun Gong. They also accuse these initiatives of spreading \u201cmisinformation.\u201d These accusations are false, and demonstrate a few significant problems in their reportage: While they claim these social media campaigns spread \u201cmisinformation,\u201d or \u201ctwisting the truth,\u201d they present no evidence for this other than the accusation that the campaign authors have not disclosed their Falun Gong \u201caffiliation.\u201dThe accusation that there is a Falun Gong \u201caffiliation\u201d itself is misguided. These initiatives are, in fact, not operated by Falun Gong organizations nor do they represent Falun Gong. Furthermore, it borders on religious prejudice to demand or expect these people to disclose their faith in order for their content to not be deemed \u201cmisinformation.\u201dThe tone and focus of these reports imply a significant blind spot as to the danger posed to the international community by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Falun Gong is a spiritual practice done by tens of millions in over 80 countries around the world. Falun Gong itself is not a political nor a social movement. The domain of its teachings addresses the realm of personal health and spiritual growth. Furthermore, the people who practice Falun Gong are a diverse group, exhibiting a wide range of ethnicities, political leanings, and social perspectives. Therefore, their individual perspectives of politics and society at large are just that: individual. To attribute a particular political perspective to Falun Gong as a whole is no more accurate than to label Christians or Buddhists as belonging to a particular political party. Yet, the reports in question do this to Falun Gong. That is, they assume the faith of the actors is the primary element to explain the motives, goals, and connections among the actors, rather than the actual motives, goals, and connections of the individual actors behind any given initiative. It is also highly questionable as to why these reports, first and foremost, call into question the faith of the actors at all, rather than address the substance of the content they produce? Must individuals in every media company or social media group first disclose their religious beliefs before they are permitted to speak? But what\u2019s really going on here? If Falun Gong is not political, and if the Falun Gong faith is not the driving force behind these initiatives, why, you might ask, does the content from these initiatives share common themes related to Falun Gong and against the CCP? Who are all these people, what is their motivation, and perhaps most important of all, is there merit in their message? Let\u2019s explore these questions. Falun Gong practitioners, their supporters and many other groups of Chinese people who have lived under CCP tyranny have, in fact, lived through decades of unprecedented violence driven by political and social turmoil inside China. From this experience, they've gained an acute sense for just how dangerous the CCP is, as well as how asleep the rest of the world is with respect to facing this danger. Yes, Falun Gong practitioners make up a significant portion of this group sounding the alarm, but they are certainly not alone. There's a growing chorus of people, from other Chinese dissidents to senior government officials in the West, who are clear-minded about the CCP and urging the international community to wake up. Thus, faced with this reality, there is indeed large groups of mostly Chinese people working feverishly to help the international community learn what they know -- that the CCP brings mayhem, destruction, and ultimately death, to everything it touches. In other words, this is not the coordinated expression of the Falun Gong faith. This is a highly diverse and grassroots effort by people of many backgrounds to warn the world about the dangers of the CCP. If some of their messages seem off-putting or even hard to understand, know that these are mostly first-generation immigrants from China lacking knowledge in the cultural and social norms of the West. They are trying their best, but communication is not easy. If you find it strange that their identities may not be immediately obvious, keep in mind that many may be reluctant to use their real names in public or on social media because doing so would put their family in China in real danger. If some of their messages seem shrill, know that these are people who've stared evil in the face, were burned by the experience, and are simply hoping to save you from the same terrible experience. To be clear, these companies and initiatives do not represent Falun Gong. They appear to be individuals and groups bringing to bear their own experiences and perspectives on the dangers presented by the CCP. It may be wise to stop second-guessing the role of their faith, and instead, evaluate the merits of their message. From their lived experience, from their pain and suffering we might just learn something.
