I hope none of my friends will turn to this cult

3 Jul

I refer to 2 sources before I want to make any stands.

I believe some of you may have heard of Falun gong or Falun Dafa. I saw these people like asking for donations or awareness of some humanitarian problem against the Falun gong people who practice it. Ok let me be fair. I believe china, treating these Falun gong people, is unfair, because they torture, kope organs etc. But let me make this clear: Falun gong is not a religious or spiritual ting: it’s more of a cult.
  
It’s this guy called Li Hongzhi who started it. He sort of make himself the main boss of this Falun gong thing. And it becomes a cult cos all those believing Falun gong muz duno some places chant his name blah blah. This Li Hongzhi guy believes the world is evil, and preach it, and only by following his Falun gong thing then u can u noe, achieve some sort of a spiritual ting. And you must do something weird one. And the teachings also like weird weir.
 
“The last of the 13 ”Basic Requirements and Points of Attention for Practicing Falun Gong” contain some eerie words from Li: ”If you are interfered with by some terrifying scenes or feel threatened, just say to yourself: I am protected by my Master (??? I am protected by a human who is not beside me??). I am not afraid of anything. You may chant the name of Master Li, and continue with your practice.” Although the statement is intended to reassure Falun Gong practitioners of Master Li’s protection while they practice his prescribed exercises, they reveal two realities about Li and his spiritual disciplines. First, contact with spirit beings (i.e., demons) is a real possibility when one engages in Li’s exercises….
 
aiyo. I don’t want to say too much lar. Later people come after me. But anw Falun gong is banned in Singapore too, because it is cult. It is this guy trying to make people believe in him, but in the end they may turn demonic, satanic. I hope none of my friends will turn to this cult. Seriously.

Psychological and psychiatric analysis of the dogma and therapeutic

3 Jul

V.K. Spiridonov, psychiatrist,
candidate of medical science,
doctor of higher category
The tasks of the given research are in the extremely difficult and controversial field of the influence of creed and activity, connected with it over the psyche and psychological state of a person. The research is grounded on the proved methodology of the clinical data, objective professional estimation of the dogma and ‘recovery’ practice of the religious organization ‘Falun Gong’ (a religious association of Li Hongzhi’s followers) and is limited to purely professional psychological and psychiatric problems.
 
Up to now no special research has been held in our country to study the prevalence of mental disorders among the representatives of different religions and cause-and-effect relations between these disorders and religious practice, ‘Falun Dafa’, in particular. The patient’s creed is not fixed in his medical history and doesn’t belong to the facts, necessary for the description of the patient’s life and decease, that is why health authorities don’t possess such information.
 
The religious organization ‘Falun Gong’ dogma is called ‘Falun Dafa’ – ‘The Great Law Falun’. The same name has the system of psychophysiological exercises and trainings, practised in this cult. “The Falun Dafa’ system consists of the dogma, described in the basic book ‘Zhuan Falun’ by Guru Li Hongzhi and five complexes of exercises, known as Falun Gong. It gives practical recommendations how we can improve ourselves in accordance with the Universal Law ‘Truth, Compassion, Forbearance’. It has two constituent parts: self-perfection through studying the verities set forth by Guru Li and doing five smooth exercises. The exercises also include meditation …“- one can read in the Instructions on the ‘Falun Gong’ practice. Searches and experiments with the employment of the meditative techniques of trance states, in the course of which a person, as a rule, trusts in the experts- impostors, often result in strongly marked psyche overload. More than 70% of those, who had tried meditation, admitted that after it they experienced psychological problems and hallucinations. In their turn, the doctrinal sources of the organization don’t conceal the fact that it is the human souls that make the object of influence. “Movements of the body are additional means to achieve complete perfection in self-perfecting“.
 
From the medical point of view, the exercises, based on physical (static and dynamic) and neuropsychic overload ensure cerebration overload which can cause physiological equilibrium deterioration, insomnia, distraction and psychosis development. Focusing on subconscious side of individuality and its hidden instincts, the ‘Falun Gong’ leaders strongly interfere in their followers’ psyche. In the end this causes changes of conscience, deterioration of reality and not only one’s own ego perception and understanding but of the surrounding world as well, lowering of pliability in social interaction and appearance of strongly pronounced social disadaptation marks.
 
The ‘Falun Gong’ disciples show unhealthy dependence on the group and the leaders, loss of independence, inability to establish emotional bonds with people, who are not members of the organization, contempt towards them, distrust to rational scientific mentality, formation of irrational attitude towards themselves and others.  Under the conditions of a difficult psychologically traumatic situation these people can suffer psychogenic disorders. Earlier mentally sane persons can suffer reactive psychosis and those, who already have different mental disorders – psychogenic ‘depositions’, at this. Because of the psychological trauma clinical presentation  of the  main mental disease of some mentally insane patients becomes considerably more confused, reactive state symptoms and syndromes coming into the picture. At latent, sluggishly progressing disorders (in particular, schizophrenia, epilepsy, etc.) patents can preserve social adaptation long enough.
 
All abovementioned changes of individuality make it impossible for the ‘Falun Gong’ followers to holistically and critically consider their mental state, characterized by the loss of possibility of one’s own declaration of will, including religious freedom. The ‘Falun Gong’ followers demonstrate personal characteristics transformation with value reorientation, appearance of strong stereotyped perception, changes in behaviour with monotonous and narrow-aimed activity prevalence, suggestibility in relation to a narrow group of people and ideas.
 
The ‘Falun Gong’ disciples declare: “… the reason of such large-scale  involvement and popularity is in great recovery effect of the practice by this system. Falun Dafa doesn’t treat illnesses but  it lustrates the body of those, engaged in self-perfecting”. To involve people into its ranks the ‘Falun Gong’ organization actively promises immediate recovery, absolute health and various outstanding and supernatural abilities. Manipulating people’s conscience, the ‘Falun Gong’ leaders write in the newspaper ‘Falun Dafa in the World’ (issue 16): “There were 10475 of the Disciples, who suffered from more than one disease. After 2 – 3 months up to 2 – 3 years of the Falun Gong practice their state of health greatly improved. The general amount of the recovered came to 77,5% + 20,4% of those, whose state of health changed for the better. Recovery and health-improvement effect made 97,9%“.
 
In fact, we know from the ‘Falun Gong’ practice in China, that more than 1400 people died after they refused medical assistance and medical treatment, following Li Hongshi’s admonition, saying, that “to cure a person  means to destroy the principle of the Universe, allow him to do evil“. More than 300 ‘Falun Gong’ followers committed suicides “to rapture to heaven”, seven persons jointly sacrificed their lives in Tiananmen square (Beijing), 20 persons were injured or killed by other ‘Falun Gong’ followers (2002 data).
 
Thus, even brief analysis of the ‘Falun Gong’ activity gives solid grounds to believe that considerable quantity of suicides and crimes of violence, described in the mass media, is directly connected with the exercising  the ‘Falun Dafa’ provisions by these people.
 
On the ground of the above-said, we can draw a number of conclusions:
 
The ‘Falun Gong’ dogma includes a lot of statements, which can be harmful for psyche and psychological state of the ‘Falun Gong’ organization members.
 
Psychophysiological exercises and trainings of the ‘Falun Gong’ practice, based on physical (static and dynamic) and neuropsychic overload ensure cerebration overload which can cause physiological equilibrium deterioration, insomnia, distraction, psychosis development, neurotization and depressive states.
 
The ‘Falun Gong’ dogma is based on mind control techniques, which makes convincing  and consistent psychiatric basis to assess its destructive activity. Separate individuals as well as the society in whole can change moral values under its influence. Mental health of the nation can also be harmed.

Retorting upon the employee from Epoch Times

3 Jul

Editor’s note: These are some comments about the article Falun Gong – harmless exercise fanatics or weird cult. An employee from Epoch Times raised an objection to the article, the author Udo Schuklenk and a student from Canada Ayesha retorted upon him.

www.freedomforchina.co.uk said…

I find this to be misrepresentative and misquoting the Falun Dafa. Words to this affect are also mentioned in the teachings: there are many men with female primordial spirits, and many women with male primordial spirits. So that in essence is what yin and yang is about, we are both male and female, some of us you see. So how could that be anything but equality for men and women! I am quite surprised that a professor could be so naive to put it mildly because many professors and academics study Falun Gong! I think it takes time to understand these teachings and to see their full breadth – read through everything because the teachings are vast.

Udo Schuklenk’s Ethx Blog said…

lol, nothing in your comment suggests a misrepresentation or misquotation. Then you suggest that we (i.e. my colleague and i) are ‘naive’ because other professors and academics study the cult’s rantings. I do note that your feeble attempt at addressing our concerns is to ignore anything at all cited w/ re to racism and homophobia. Are you conceding those points?

ps, having visited your site, I note that you’re a employee of Falun Gong’s propaganda outlet Epoch Times. Not exactly just an interested bystander, are we?

Ayesha said…

I always find it interesting when the proponents of a religion or cult attempt to defend the oppressive teachings of their religions by saying that they are misunderstood or taken out of context. I read the blog post and also the materials from the website owned by the Falun Gong. I see no evidence of out of context quotation.. rather, the questions and answers are verbatim.. How is that out of context? What is missing here?

The “teacher” makes appeals to heavens and Gods to make assertions that do not logically follow. There are circular references and stories that are completely inconsistent. Some of the sentences seem only to be a combination of strong and complex words that mean nothing. There is no profound lesson being missed here, http://www.freedomforchina.co.uk, you may want to take specific points if you wish to defend them and show how they are being taken out of context. What does it mean for women to be subservient, gentle and quiet for them to be true to who they are or who they are supposed to be.. and please tell me what is wrong with stronger women? or by comparison, weaker men… what defines weakness in a man and what defines strength in a woman? if strength means that one cannot be oppressed, told what to do, or easily manipulated then can you not see why the notion of weak woman is so attractive? why a compassionate and gentle, caring man would be classified as weak?

What is this about a separate heaven for all races? we are not sure about the existence of one heaven and here the teacher speaks of many heavens.. what kind of a God would create such distinction? I don’t think i like that God very much… and why would God forget the black race.. please do enlighten us readers here how we are misunderstanding the teachings of this so-called religion. Just because words like “cultivation” of truthfulness, benevolence, and forbearance are being used does not mean that the teachings are consistent with attaining the said goals or that the teachings are consistent with these goals.
The teachings of this particular cult are obviously dangerous.. they promote racial distinction not unity based on common humanity, they promote dispartiy between sexes offering privilige to one sex over the other and they are homophobic without reason and oppressive to those who are not yellow, male or straight…..
I am sorry about the rant but inhumane teachings of religions bug me to no end… and unfortunately, I find that each religion promotes some version of the same racism, sexism and intolerance towards homosexual population… it is not taken out of context, it is being seen for what it is and the fear of hell or God is no longer a way to continue oppression of the vulnerable or marginalized populations… if the teachings were humane, it would be obvious.. there is no mistaking humanity.. just like there is no mistaking brutality…
Would you like to be a “mixed” child in a world where religions like these reign? would you like to be a homosexual or a woman?

My problem with Falun Gong

3 Jul

Astute readers of our site, or others gifted with vision, will have noticed that I made a post about a certain cult recently that was not well received. Before we get to the meat, I need to come clean about something: I recently got access to uncensored internet and couldn’t find any FLG ads on the GIFC website. The Washington Post article I was working off said that there were ads on their software download page, which I found concerning, but I don’t see any advertisements, FLG-related or otherwise, when I visit their site myself. A rare WaPo error, or am I missing something here?
In any event, as a direct result of that post I’ve been conducting an extensive discussion with commenter J. Zhang via email about FLG in general. He, and others, have suggested that I am biased against FLG. In a way, this is true, although “bias” suggests prejudice without reason, and I do have my reasons. Since we’ve already attracted some of the faithful and people seem to be interested in talking about it, I thought I would rehash a little bit of our discussion here.

For the record — and please feel free to ignore this part when you’re accusing me of being a callous jerk and/or 五毛党 in the comments — I am not a supporter of the way the Chinese government has persecuted FLG members. I would love to see more evidence for any of the claims made on either side, but regardless, it seems fairly clear that terrible things are happening and have happened.

However, I don’t see that as being particularly related to FLG. Granted, they’re the biggest group that’s aroused this level of ire, but the government deals with dissidents, petitioners, and protesters of all sorts in similar ways. FLG members are hardly the only people who’ve been tortured and killed in the hands of the CCP over the past decade. High-profile dissidents like Liu Xiaobo and Tan Zuoren get lengthy prison terms, but the fate of the less-well-known can be decidedly worse. The persecution of FLG is perhaps more centralized and organized, but that doesn’t make it more widespread, nor does it make it more evil. The persecution of FLG is a symptom, not the disease, and there are other symptoms that are equally important. What the “disease” is is something impossible to answer fully in the scope of a short blog post, but in brief, it is lack of government oversight and lack of the rule of law.

But my problems with the Falun Gong start closer to home. Though proponents allege that there is “no organization” and “no leader”, there is an official website1, and the writings on that website come almost entirely from the group’s founder and the origin of their beliefs, Li Hongzhi. These writings, along with Li’s lectures, make it clear that the religion/cult has ties to a number of media organizations, such as the Epoch Times, which Li himself visited to give a lecture last year.

Ostensibly, the Epoch Times is an independent organization that strives to “present a diversity of opinions”. In reality, they are widely-known among China watchers as an FLG publication that frequently advocates FLG-friendly policies. Chief among these, and omnipresent in nearly everything created by FLG-affiliated groups, is the drive to get Chinese people to quit the Communist Party. In fact, Epoch Times staff members — operating in their official capacities — have held press conferences and rallies promoting the Nine Commentaries and denouncing the CCP. Yet there is no admission of any connection to FLG or to their advancing a specific political agenda anywhere on their website or in their newspaper.

In the case of the Epoch Times, this may not matter (everyone already knows who writes it), but this kind of bait-and-switch unethical presentation is typical of FLG-affiliated outreach efforts. Just take, for example, one of their recent cultural shows, billed as a celebration of Chinese New Year that was kid-friendly. According to the New York Times, horrified audience members, many of whom had paid exorbitant ticket prices, discovered a few performances into the act that the whole thing was a agitprop piece that contained violent scenes of prison abuse. Dozens, perhaps hundreds, walked out of Radio City Music Hall in the middle of the show.

I find this lack of transparency bizarre and concerning. I have no problem with FLG advancing a political or religious agenda, but they should not try to cloak it as traditional media or apolitical entertainment. This is dishonest and off-putting.

My bigger problem with FLG, though, is the anti-CCP political agenda they advance. Make no mistake, I am not pro-CCP; however, everything I’ve read from FLG is woefully unclear as to what, exactly, they want the CCP to be replaced with. This strikes me as a rather important detail. Chinese historians will recall that the corrupt Qing dynasty was overthrown in the early twentieth century only to be replaced by a government that was, for all intents and purposes, just as bad (if not worse2 ).

An excerpt from my most recent email to J. Zhang:
I think [FLG’s] approach of trying to destroy the CCP is completely useless until there is something better with which to replace it. Regardless of their treatment of dissenters, I think life under the CCP is preferable to life under warlordism again, so the CCP needs to be either (a) reformed from within or (b) overthrown by some group so exceedingly powerful that it can quickly take control of the entire country to prevent a disastrous transition period. Everything I’ve seen from FLG (which granted isn’t everything they’ve written) is pretty vague on what exactly they want to happen after the CCP falls, and I think it’s pretty naive to assume that the next regime would be any better. The problem isn’t the CCP, really — I suspect any party in a one-party state is likely to commit similar abuses, especially with no real rule of law or oversight.

And while I would love to see those who have abused power be out of it, that needs to happen under the right conditions. Given what happened after the fall of the Qing dynasty (and the geographic distribution of weapons and power in the Chinese military now) it’s not hard to imagine what could happen if the CCP were to be felled by a civil war or a coup…

In short: CCP policies have been a disaster for FLG members. But if the CCP disappeared tomorrow, that would probably be a disaster for EVERYONE in China, [FLG members included].

Anyway, I have probably ranted long enough. Readers! Begin assaulting my reasoning, character, and whatever else you can sink your claws into in 3…2…1!

Li Fengying committed suicide by jumping into a river (photo)

3 Jul

On the morning of August 22, 2008, people were sitting and fishing by twos and threes along the Sihe river in Jiayu Town, Xingyang City, Henan Province. The water was so clean that the fishes could be seen. Everything was peace and quiet.

Around 9:50 a.m., a sharp cry that “someone is jumping into the river” broke the peace. A woman was flapping in the water face with both of her arms up and down. Then, Zhang Xiaowu, a resident of Jinshui District who was just fishing there, dived into the water immediately. With the help of the mass of people, Zhang Xiaowu finally dragged the woman to the shore after five minutes. But he found the woman had stopped breathing. The woman was subsequently confirmed to die from drowning by the medical examiner.

Who is the decedent? Why did she jump into the river to kill herself?

The decedent was Falun Gong practitioner Li Fengying, 53 years old. .She was a former worker of Zhengzhou No. 2 Print Factory and lived at Building 5 of No. 4 Block, Gangpo Road, Zhongyuan District, Zhengzhou City.

In March 1999, a colleague dropped down to her home, and sent her a copy of Zhuan Falun. She didn’t pay attention to it at the beginning. But this colleague persuaded her continuously, then Li Fengying began to practice Falun Gong just as doing exercise every morning. After a period, Li was glad to find that the pains of periarthritis of shoulder and lumbago alleviated, which made her believe it as a miracle and have a keen interest in Falun Gong.

She still practiced Falun Gong secretly after the government banned it on July 22, 1999. She always shared the experience of practice with her Gong fellows until she was completely obsessed with it. Li regarded Li Hongzhi as God, believed his each word without any hesitation that his Fashen (Law body) could make her safe, that he could help her reach Consummation and become immortal.

However, during the obsessive practice, Li Fengying never got any favor from the Master, but suffered the pains both in mind and body.

She hoped Master Li would take care of her if she did the three things well following Master Li’s request. Unfortunately, the relationship between Li Fengying and her families was getting worse for her practice for long time. In addition, her periarthritis of shoulder and lumbago were more serious increasingly because of rejecting medical help. Li Fengying began to wonder.

In October 2007, Li Fengying consulted some “advanced” fellows, “I practice with all my heart, why the Master never takes care of me? What’s the problem?” However, no one could give a compellent answer to her.

The confusion and disappointment to belief always made Li Fengying sad, and she began to awake. She wrote in her will that Li Hongzhi broke up the family first, so many couples divorced, then Li Hongzhi involved us in financial problems, at last Li Hongzhi led our kids to a wrong way, ending their bright future.

From June to August 2008, Li always murmured sadly that: “Master cheats me and abandons me. I want to die.” The families all supposed what she said was utterance of frustration because she was too disappointed at Falun Gong, but they never thought that Li really suicided herself. People couldn’t understand that though Li had seen through the tricks of Li Hongzhi, why did she still commit suicide?

I have tried to find the answer from her will, but the second half of letter was soaked. Was she insane because of practicing Falun Gong? Or did she choose to die for the teaching of “going up to the heaven”? Everything is a complete riddle after Li’s death.

Practicing Falun Gong brought real bitterness to my daughter and me

3 Jul

My name is Wang Xiu, female, 57 years old. I was born in Zaoyang City, Hubei Province. I live at Room 302 of the Low-rent House District, Nanyuan Community Committee, Beicheng Sub-district Office of the Zaoyang City. I used to have a happy family. My daughter studied in a key high school in the city. My husband supported our family by selling small commodities while I did housework at home. The three of us led a happy life. And our family was then a really enviable one.
Suffering from scapulohumeral periarthritis, I always got throes in my shoulder joint and I couldn’t do the housework as I would. In July 1998, I was introduced to Fanlun Gong by my sister cousin and began to practice it for healing and improving health. After one week of regular cultivation, I felt much better and thought it beneficial to cultivate Falun Dafa. And from then on, I put more efforts into practicing Falun Gong. In addition, I bought the portrait of Li Hongzhi and hung it on the wall. I burnt joss sticks and worshipped him punctually every day, becoming more and more obsessed with the cult. In July 1999, the government banned Fanlun Gong, but I refused to obey the orders and kept exercising secretly for many years. During that time, I frequently went out to “clarify the truth” for Falun Gong and participated illegal gatherings organized by Falun Gong diehards.
In 2006, my daughter, who was always eager to do well in everything, failed in the entrance examination for college. This was a real shock to her and she stayed at home in low spirits for days. On seeing that, I gave her the book Zhuan Falun and tried to persuade her to get rid of attachment and let go of fame, interest and emotion. By and by, my daughter became fascinated with Falun Dafa under my influence. Although my husband was opposed to our practicing, but my daughter and I wouldn’t listen to his words, we argued back vehemently, “we practice not only for ourselves, but also for the blessing and happiness of the whole family”. My daughter always turned her back upon her father and persisted in cultivating Falun Dafa with me, totally ignoring my husband’s advice.
But little by little, I found there was something wrong with my daughter. She constantly told me that Master’s Fashen was right behind her, and that she was horrified. I often found her curling up under the table and crying out in panic, “I’ll practice it right now, I promise!” Sometimes, she even fell into a trance and recited scriptures from Zhuan Falun. However, I thought that’s because my daughter had accumulated too much Karma, or her cultivation had provoked the “demons.” So I exerted all my strength to “send out righteous thoughts” to her, prayed for her, and begged the Master to help her “pass the test”.
Noticing my daughter’s abnormal state, my husband took her to hospital regardless of my opposition. The doctor’s diagnosis was schizophrenia. Yet I could not accept the fact that my daughter was mentally ill. To make things worse, I kept practicing heart and soul every day instead of dissuading her in time, expecting that by doing so I would help her eliminate karma and cure her illness. In order to be elevated to a higher level, I learned Fa and practiced harder and harder in the dream of reaching Consummation. At the same time, I myself was also trapped in the illusory world without the strength to get out.
On October 17, 2006, I stayed at home and sat in bed for meditation as usual. Several minutes later, I lost in a dream world, and felt as if my body was going to fly, but failed ultimately. After a while, I was wet with sweat. I began to feel dizzy with hallucination that Master was calling me. Fooled by illusions, I thought I was about to become a God or a Buddha, and Master Li was waving at me high above the heavens. How wonderful it was! I was going with wind like a bird, floating across the sky. And this must be the case Master Li had described. Yes, it was the miracle of “Ascension in Broad Daylight!” I was finally reaching Consummation and would soon become a real god! Muddy-minded, I hurried to the balcony and jumped over the parapet while shouting at the top of my voice “Falun Dafa is good!” Falling to the ground from the third floor, I lost my consciousness. Later on, with the help of my husband and the neighbors nearby, I was sent to the First People’s Hospital of Zaoyang City. Luckily, I survived after the timely rescue and more than half a month’s therapy. But the incident left me paralyzed from the waist down to the feet, and hence I was unable to walk upright.
Seated in the wheelchair, I was full of sorrows to look at my pixilated daughter and my husband’s gaunt face. Up to now, I finally realized that I was totally wrong. I even felt ashamed when thinking about my daughter. As a matter of fact, practicing Falun Gong didn’t cure my illness, but led to my daughter’s mental illness and my own paralysis. Falun Gong did cause infinite harm to people.

Dong Dengzhi jumps to death with Zhuan Falun (photos)

3 Jul

Dong Dengzhi, female, Han nationality, ID number 422432195210130029, was born in October 1952 in Wangjiashan Village, Songhe Town, Jingshan County, Jingmen City, Hubei Province. She was graduated from No. 1 Nursing School of Hubei College of Medicine in 1976, then transferred to the People’s Hospital of Jingshan County from a health center in 1979. She lived at Room 601 Unite 1 of staff apartment of Jingshan Building Materials Market.

In June 1997, Dong began to practice Falun Gong for believing that Falun Gong could keep your body strong, make you be a good person with the belief “Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance” and cure the disease without any medical treatment. Her life then totally changed.

After Dong joined Falun Gong, Falun Gong assistants in practicing spot not only taught her the movements, but also propagandized magical effect of Falun Gong to her, such as keeping fit, eliminating karma and going up to a higher level. In addition, they recommended Li Hongzhi’s Zhuan Falun and other books to her, saying repeatedly that if she wanted to go up to a higher level, she should read Master Li’s books with heart over and over again. If she wanted to reach the goals of keeping fit, rising to a high level, accumulateing virtues and eliminating Karma, she ought to do what Master Li asked her to do in his books. Little by little, Dong became a Falun Gong follower from an employable nurse.

Before practicing Falun Gong,  Dong had been a warm, professional and employable nurse with an excellent reputation in the hospital. But after her practicing, she totally became a different person with a cold heart. She was so overstrung that she often made mistakes in her work, posted the leaflets of Falun Gong on the wall of her office, and advocated Falun Gong to the patients and their families, which completely made people uncomfortable.

At 12:05 in the morning on November 1, 2009, in order to reach Consummation, Dong jumped off her apartment with a copy of Zhuan Falun after getting rid of her daughter’s block, murmuring “Communication” constantly.
