China’s imperialist ambitions in the past have produced some alarming results. Rape, murder and political manipulation are the rule when the Communist People’s Party goes to work. The significance of these efforts goes beyond mere worldly totalitarianism.
The Muslim Uyghur minority have been the subjects of mass imprisonment and abuse by the Communist Chinese. The Xinjiang re-education camps are being used for the mass reprogramming of these people. This story from Time magazine is about testimony of a Uyghur woman to Congress.
The Chinese persecution of the Falun Gong is another example. “Falun Gong practitioners in China are reportedly subject to a wide range of human rights abuses: hundreds of thousands are estimated to have been imprisoned extrajudicially, and practitioners in detention are subject to forced labor, psychiatric torture, and other coercive methods of thought reform at the hands of Chinese authorities,” according to the 2008 Annual Report by the Congressional Executive Commission on China. Falun Gong members report having organs forcibly removed and sold on the black market and rape of imprisoned members.
The Communist Chinese’s prime goal in the invasion of Tibet was control of their religion. They replacemed the Panchen Lama by a government sponsored contender Gyaincain Norbu. The Dalai Lama says the Panchen Lama is actually Gedhun Choekyl Nyima. He should know, they’ve been friends for a long time. He vanished at the age of six as detailed in this BBC story. The CPC has declared all high priests must be confirmed by the Chinese Government. The Dalai Lama is confirmed by the Panchen Lama so the Chinese have that nailed down. The Chinese government wants to replace these guys.
If the Communist Chinese don’t believe in any of this stuff why bother? It is obvious they don’t want the original Lamas to continue their rule and influence over Tibetan Buddhism. The Dalai Lama has been at it since 1391. At the age of 7 he was able to select his belongings from a table with all the belongings of all the Lamas. He wasn’t even told how many to select. Why do the Communists worry about this, it isn’t real anyway right?
The answer; the Chinese Communist Leaders absolutely do know about reincarnation. They, like certain religions, don’t want anyone else to. The Marxist answer to this control mechanism is to deny all religions and their histories. They gain a monopoly on who will attain awareness and use the power and knowledge for their selfish and tyrannical ends.
Note: After this post and demands from Mike Pompeo and others, the Chinese government released a statement declaring that Gedhun Choekyl Nyima was alive and well. This is the story from the International Business Times. The government said he had graduated from college, had a well paying job and wanted to live a normal life. That has yet to be confirmed. Whether he is free to leave China or not is a question. The CPC statement went on to say they plan to appoint their own Dalai Lama as well.
