Falun Gong Rally, Perth WA, July 2020

I had the pleasure yesterday of addressing the Falun Gong Rally at the West Australian Parliament House in Perth. The rally was organised by members of the Falun Gong.

Founded in 1992, this spiritual movement was banned in the late 1990s by the CCP and its practitioners sentenced to ‘reform through labour’ camps where they are starved, beaten, and tortured with electric batons.

For years, there has also been overwhelming evidence that Chinese authorities are forcibly harvesting the organs (particularly kidneys, livers, and hearts) of Falun Gong members.

Unfortunately, the governments of Western democracies have turned a blind eye to these human rights violations. These countries are governed by cowardly politicians who have allowed their countries, including Australia, to be heavily dependent on China’s economy and means of production.

One of the key elements of the anti-Falun Gong campaign is a CCP propaganda that seeks to discredit and demonize Falun Gong and its teachings as “anti-scientific” and promoted by agents of “foreign” influence.

However, as I explained yesterday to the crowd assembled outside the WA Parliament House, such accusations are absurd for a couple of reasons.

First of all, the Falun Gong is based on an ancient spiritual practice which draws on China’s long tradition of Buddhism, Taoism, and “qigong”, a centuries-old system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation.

Second, the very ideology embraced by the CCP is completely Western and non-Chinese. It was created by a pseudo-intellectual and political agitator born in Germany called Karl Marx.

Marx was a German socialist who thought his extreme ideology could eventually lead the world to a violent confrontation of social classes and the ultimate abolition of individual rights and the rule of law. He viewed these ideas in solely negative terms, as guaranteeing supposed “class oppression”.

Marx argued also that the laws of communist regimes should simply impose a dictatorship that, although claimed to be carried out in the name of the proletariat, was in actual fact favouring the oppressive rule of privileged individuals who conveniently described themselves as the so-called “vanguard of the proletariat”.’

As can be seen, Marxism creates an entire justification for the social, economic and political exploitation of people (particularly the working class) by a small political elite of privileged individuals.

Indeed, in a society where the government controls the productive wealth, the bureaucracy is therefore transformed into a hereditary caste of privileged individuals that make everyone dependent on the state to survive. In the words of Trotsky, “In a country where the sole employer is the state, opposition means slow starvation”.

Also explained in my speech yesterday at Parliament is how the undercurrent of coercive violence so often exhibited by the CCP, is simply the natural consequence of Marxist ideology, a foreign (non-Chinese) ideology based on the essential teachings of an “agent of foreign influence” called Mao Tse-Tung.

Finally, I reminded the audience of the important Chinese tradition of lawful resistance against tyranny known as the “Mandate of Heaven”. Such tradition can be traced as far back as the 12th century BC and be credited to the overthrow of the Shang Dynasty (1765–1122 BC).

The Mandate of Heaven asserts that the legitimacy of every government is ultimately derived from Heaven which then blesses good and benevolent rulers, but is profoundly displeased with those who abuse their power to oppress the people.

Besides myself, other speakers included Andrea Tokaji, Tshung Chang, and Peter Abetz, who spoke firmly about the many forces at work even in our own country, which are likewise wanting to strip away our religious freedom and the freedom of speech.

Above all, these speakers reached the common understanding that it is time for us not only to denounce the violations of human rights in China, but also to be vigilant and stand against the same political forces currently operating in this country, who equally aspire to undermine the rule of law and eliminate our fundamental rights and freedoms.
