The Ultimate Mission of Communism
The Preamble of "The Ultimate Mission of Communism"
Since the emergence of the first communist political power of Soviet Union, it has been a total of one hundred years that elapsed. Within such a short span of a century, communism has caused the death of hundreds of millions of people. From the very beginning, the Communist Party showed its banner of competing for humankind with the divine and shouted that "there is no such thing as a savior," and that "the old world should be smashed into pieces."
Where does Communism come from? Why in the universe does it emerge a Communist Party? What is the essence of Communism? What will happen at the end? People have different opinions on the answers to these fundamental questions. Now is the time to find out the answer.
The essence of Communism is an "evil specter" consisting of "hate" and the defeat in the lower planes of the universe; it hates and wants to destroy humankind. It is not satisfied with the flesh-killing of humankind, because the death of human flesh-body is not the true death of life as the main consciousness (spirit) reincarnates. However, when one's moral corruption is beyond redemption, the main consciousness will be destroyed completely in endless pain, which is the most terrible, the real death of life. The "Communist Evil Specter" is to make all humanity fall into such an abyss of irreversible destruction.
When the Berlin Wall collapsed in 1989, which was followed by the subsequent rapid collapse of the communist camp in the Soviet Union and East Europe, it seemed as if everyone in the world believed that the "Cold War" had ended and the communist ideology was defeated miserably, and even the remaining communist countries were feeling that they could collapse any moment. However, the fact is that the fundamental and the transformed communist ideas and factors are still raging the world today. There are still many countries that are publicly acknowledged to be socialist countries, such as China, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam; and also there are many countries in Africa and South America that are practicing socialism under the banner of democracy or republicanism; there are even many more democratic countries in Europe and North America which are severely eroded by communist factors but do not even know it.
Whether via violently expanding or through quietly infiltrating, the method of the "Communist Evil Specter" to destroy human beings completely is the same: to undermine the culture laid down by the Creator for the ultimate salvation. When human beings lose their culture, they lose the standard of being human and they become beasts with human figures only in the sight of the divine; they not only lose the moral restraints and fall rapidly, but also fail to understand the divine mechanism shown by the Creator who comes to the human world to deliver salvation, thereby losing the opportunity to be saved at the last havoc. This is the greatest havoc of lives – to be forever destroyed, and this is also the ultimate mission of the "Communist Evil Specter."
With our great respects and appreciation of the lives created by the divine, and with our deep concern of the future of mankind, we have written this book, "The Ultimate Mission of Communism," to systematically analyze and expose the gigantic conspiracy of the “Evil Specter of Communism” in its attempt to destroy mankind through the destruction of human culture and human morality.
The legend regarding the coming of the divine to the human world to save people has been wide spread among all different races. Humankind has arrived at a turning point in the history of the universe, and the communist cult is the biggest obstacle to human salvation at this very moment. Therefore, we urgently believe that we must thoroughly reveal its ultimate evil purpose and means to destroy humanity so that humankind, with human conscience and human true nature, can abandon the Communist Evil Cults, and then peacefully disintegrate the communist organizations and systematically cleanse the evil elements of communism, and then to embrace the new era of humankind.
The book contains two parts: the first part, "The Ultimate Mission of Communism (China Chapter)"; the second part, "The Ultimate Mission of Communism (World Chapter)." The Epoch Times will first publish the first part, "China Chapter"; the second part will be launched soon, so stay tuned.
We would like to dedicate this book to all who sincerely wish that Chinese people as a race will be civilized, prosperous and strong!
This book is dedicated to all who care about the destiny of mankind!

* * * * *
The ebb and flow of the past five thousand years of human history have witnessed the disappearance of several other great human civilizations, while only the Chinese civilization has been passed on without interruption. China once created such glorious society which attracted all other nations in the world to send envoy to visit with deep respect and was honored as "The Heavenly Supreme Kingdom." Chinese culture has profoundly affected the entire East Asia and established a circle of Chinese culture beyond China. The opening of the Silk Road as well as the spreading of the Four Major Inventions (Compass, Gunpowder, Papermaking and Printing) to the West promoted the world civilization and contributed to the discovery of the New World and the Renaissance of art and culture in Europe.
The Chinese people as a race has also encountered many tribulations. Especially in modern times, internal and external turbulences have never stopped. In the mid-20th century, after the Evil Communist Specter from the West usurped political power in China, it has been killing the Chinese people, destroying the Chinese culture, damaging the environment, ruining the mountains and rivers and killing innocent lives, making the once glorious civilization dark and almost destroyed it completely.
Why did the Communist Party continue to mobilize various kinds of movements and even launch the "Unprecedented Cultural Revolution”? Why should the Chinese Communist Party take Chinese people and Chinese culture as its enemy and is so determined to exterminate them? Why has China become the most tightly controlled and most brutally persecuted nation by the Communist Evil Specter in the past century?
This book reveals for the first time that Communism is not a trend of thought, doctrine, or a failed attempt to find a way out for humanity. It is the devil, also known as the Evil Specter of the Communism, which is composed of hate and various corrupting substances in the space at the bottom plane of the universe. Its ultimate mission is to destroy mankind.
The most evil means of the Communist Specter in destroying mankind is to destroy the divine culture created by the Creator for saving sentient beings. This divine culture is also called the Chinese Traditional Culture.
1. Central Kingdom
More than four thousand years ago, the monstrous flood in the world almost destroyed mankind completely. In the memory of each race about this flood, it was remembered that almost everyone died but only a handful of people survived as the seeds of race to reproduce.
In Chinese history, it was the time when Emperor Yao was reigned. In this monstrous flood that also submerged many mountains, the Chinese nation as a whole, however, fortunately survived and in the meantime preserved the ancient glory and civilization, including the 太极(Tai4Ji2) Tai-ji, 河图(He2Tu2) He Tu, 洛书(Luo4Shu1) Luoshu Diagrams, 周易(Zhou1Yi4) the Book of Changes and 八卦(Ba1Gua4) the Eight Trigrams and so on, which the modern people have so far failed to understand.
According to records, when Emperor Yao was carrying out rituals to show respect to the heavens, the divine showed miracles and taught the Emperor Yao: "The water has just arrived to harm people and I here order you to save people” (“The Great Flood is endangering the human world. You must save the people” from “Records from Ancient to Present”). This started the flood control miracles of Great Yu. The times of Emperor Yao, Shun and Yu are the beginning of the Chinese nation's recovery from the devastating flood. The Great Yu’s governance of China created a new living environment for the Chinese people who have flourished till the present.
This is the divine’s special favor to the Chinese nation. Without the blessing of the divine, the Chinese nation, like all other nations in the world, could not have escaped the dread of this world-wide extinction. The divine has deliberately chosen the Chinese nation among many ethnic groups and granted it the divine culture, also known as the demi-god culture. Of course, it also was for greater arrangements in the future.
Different dynasties of China had different territories. In its essence, "China" is not the concept of geographical location but the meaning of "the Central Kingdom", which stems from the divine’s unique arrangement of the status, characteristics, structure and composition of the Chinese culture.
The uniqueness of the Chinese land is the Central Kingdom chosen by the divine, and the Law to Save the World at the end of time will be spread here. Therefore, everything in China, from the superficial natural environment, the population distribution, to the deep historical development, the establishment of culture, and the understanding of various religions and practices, etc., all come from the orderly arrangement of the divine.
In the long history of China, the Creator was reincarnated as the sacred kings, literati, Buddhist monks, Daoist priests, martial art masters, government councils, and great military commanders, leading a group of extraordinary beings to create living environments for Chinese people, to set up moral standards, to enrich ideological connotation, to establish orthodox culture and to set up legal system. This underlies the distinct phenomena of Chinese history: each dynasty had its own unique feature containing its unique Emperor, its unique people, its unique culture, its unique clothing, its unique customs, its unique connotation characteristics; one dynasty after another, each as bright as stars in the milky way, with its power spreading all over the world, and eventually evolved into the grand complete structure of the 5000 years of the magnificent divine culture.
The heroic figures in Chinese history are so magnificent that their merry stories are eternally revered and remembered. The list of famous emperors and chancellors such as Emperor Qin, Emperor Wu of Han, Emperor Cao Cao, the Military Chancellor Zhuge Liang, the Tang Dynasty Emperor Taizong, the Yuan Dynasty Emperors Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan, the Ming Dynasty Emperor Yongle, the Qing Dynasty Emperor Kangxi etc. were known to expand the territories of China, to establish karmic relationships with the neighboring countries and ethnic groups and to spread the traditional Chinese culture to lands far away from China.
During the Qin Dynasty (221-207 BC) and Han Dynasty (West Han 202 BC-8 AD and East Han 25-220 AD), the reunification of the six countries, the opening up of the Western Regions (also known as Xiyu, a historical name specified in the Chinese chronicles between the 3rd century BC to the 8th century AD, see wikipedia on “Western Regions” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Regions), the northern conquering of the Wuhuan people (a proto-Mongolic nomadic people who inhabited northern China, in what is now the provinces of Hebei, Liaoing, Shanxi, the municipality of Beijing and the autonomous region of Inner Mongolia; see Wikipedia on “Wuhuan” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuhuan), the southern conquering of the Nanman people (the ancient indigenous peoples who lived in inland South and Southwest China, mainly the Yangtze River valley. See Wikipedia on “Nanman” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanman) were accomplished. During the two Jin Dynasty (West Jin 265-316 AD and East Jin 317-420 AD) and the Northern and Southern Dynasties (420-589 AD), the scholars and riches who represented the mainstream Chinese culture moved to the south of Yangtze river and the Five Hu (also called the Five Barbarians: ethnic Xiongnu, Xianbei,Di, Jie, Qiang, see Wikipedia on “Sixteen Kingdoms”) entered the Central Plains of China. During the Sui Dynasty (581-619 AD), the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), and the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms Period (907-979 AD), the neighboring ethnic groups either claimed affiliation to, or pay tax to, or wage wars towards, or establish marriage relationships with, or traveled to study at, or carried out business dealings with the Central Plains of China to establish karmic relationships. During the two Song Dynasties (Northern Song 960-1125 AD and Southern Song 1125-1276 AD), Khitan and Jurchen rose, the disputes between Liao and Song, between Jin and Song followed. Subsequently, Genghis Khan unified the vast desert land and made expedition to Europe. This was followed by the Ming Dynasty Emperor Yongle sending ocean voyages across the sea. The entire Chinese history are filled with all kinds of incredible feats which shook the world and made spirits weep. All of these historic events are seemingly disorderly, but in fact very ordered; they are seemingly coincidental, but in truth to be inevitable.
The divine has been taking care of every sentient beings and has made an orderly arrangement for the Chinese traditional culture to radiate into the entire human world in order to lay the foundation for the establishment of the Universal Values that the human world should have.
On the grand stage of the land of the divine, one main character after another came and left; those who were on the stage as actors and actresses gradually lost themselves in the splendid themes of the plays, while those who were watching the plays as audiences also became totally intoxicated and mesmerized. This great drama of thousands of years and the deep meaning behind the scenes have unwittingly been melted deeply into the blood of the Chinese people, and through five thousand years of uninterrupted records of the history with Chinese characters, also have been inherited by latter generations, thereby played the key role in maintaining human morality at a relatively acceptable level.
2. Divine Culture
Chinese traditional culture connects to the divine. In the Chinese tradition, the Chinese Character “天” (Tian1, which means sky, heave or the divine, god) is much more than "nature" understood by modern people. “天” is a living entity and everything between “天” and “地” (Di4, which means earth and land) are called “造化” (Zhao4Hua4: Creation and Transformation), which refers to what have been created and what have been transformed and cultivated. The One who is responsible for the creation, transformation and cultivation is the King of Heaven and Earth, called “天帝” (Tian1Di4: Heavenly King), or “昊天上帝” (Hao4Tian1Shan4Di4: Vast Heaven Supreme King”, and the populace called “老天爷” (Lao3Tian1Ye2: Elderly Heavenly Grandfather)--which means, the Almighty Creator. Chinese people call the homeland as “神州” (Shen2Zhou1: The Land of Divine). Chinese people call the Emperor “天子” (Tian1Zi: Son of the Divine), and believe that the destiny of human beings is to return to the heavenly kingdoms of the divine through moral ascension.
The Divine Will is called “天意” (Tian1Yi4: Heaven’s Will). Every living beings below heaven and above earth follow the Divine Will to live, thus called “天道” (Tian1Dao4: Divine’s Way). The Divine Will manifests through celestial signs. In Chinese culture, the Heavenly King condemns and warns those who depart from the Divine Will through casting down natural disasters while praises and encourages those who are virtuous and obedient to the Divine Will through auspicious weather patterns. The Heavenly King also arranged high beings to reincarnate into the human world to become Holy Emperors and Sages to teach people, and help them to see and read the Divine Will.
In the book “Yi-Xici I”(Also known as: “The Book of Changes: The Great Treatise I”), it says, “The Divine hangs up the heaven’s signs to show good fortune or bad luck, the sages read the sign and follow them; The Map comes out from the Yellow River, and the Writings came out from the Luo River, the sages followed them and used them wisely”. Use common terms to express this, it means that sages follow the Divine Will to show people the celestial signs “天文” (Tian1Wen2: Celestial Words) and thereby forming the ideology, faith and actions of people, even all the way to the most surface level manifestation of fundamental human morality, ethics, standard of human actions, disciplines, rules and regulations and laws. In this way, “天文” (Celestial Words) is transformed into “人文” (Ren2Wen2: Human Culture), which is the very origin of Chinese civilization.
These “圣者” (Shen4Zhe3: Sages or Saints) who played out the Chinese civilization and taught and enlightened all people are themselves either divine beings or semi-divine beings. Just as the Chinese Character “聖” (Shen4: Sage) depicts, these beings are Kings who understand the Divine Will from above and create human culture below, among them are 盘古 (Pan2Gu3) Pangu, 女娲 (Nu3Wa1) Nu Wa, 伏羲 (Fu2Xi1) Fu Xi, 神农 (Shen2Nong2) Shen Nong and other divine beings, as well as the 黄帝 (Huang2Di4) Yellow Emperor, 尧 (Yao2) Yao, 舜 (Shun4) Shun, 禹 (Yu2) Yu and other sacred human kings.
According to ancient records, the Yellow Emperor who has been honored as the “人文初祖” (Ren2Wen2Chu1Zu3: Human Culture Original Ancestor) obtained the Dao and took off in broad daylight to return to his heavenly kingdom, after he completed his mission of teaching the people on earth. His story was left behind for the human world to understand how human beings can return to the divine through doing 修炼 (Xiu1Lian4) cultivation practice. Descendants of the Yellow Emperor buried the hats and clothes that Yellow Emperor wore before his taking off at 桥山 (Qiao2Shan1: a site in Shanxi Province) to make the Tomb, called 黄帝陵(Huang2Di4Ling2: Yellow Emperor’s Tomb), and has been revered until the present days.
After that, in each following dynasty, divine beings continued to reincarnate to become the sacred Emperors and Kings of Chinese people, and in the long years of history they gradually established and enriched the civilization system of the Chinese divine culture. Chinese culture stems from the wisdom of the divine, with broad and profound inner contents and are enriched with celestial mechanisms and miracles.
3. Thousands of Years of Arrangement
After the Great Flood, Yao, Shun and Yu, the three Holy Kings, came into the human world to relay the past and pave the path to the future, to rectify the orderly motions of the four seasons, to peacefully govern the water and soil, to harmonize the Ying and Yang, to eradicate demons, and to create the living environment for mankind. With supreme virtue to govern the world, with morality as the core, these Holy Kings established a cultural system that is characteristic of 天人合一 (Tian1Ren2He2Yi1) “Humanity to be One with the Universe”, and jointly completed the process of establishing the grand stage of the divine land of China.
During the 夏(Xia4) Xia Dynasty (2070-1600 BC) and 商 (Shang1) Shang Dynasty (1600-1046 BC), there were many immortals and True Man (Daoists) who lived among ordinary human beings, and they passed on to the people all kinds of culture, skills, creation, and also standardized human morals and ideological connotations.
From西周 (Xi1Zhou1) the Western Zhou Dynasty (1046-771 BC) to 大秦(Da4Qin2) the Great Qin Dynasty (221-207 BC), there were eight hundred years of vicissitudes, during which five Hegemons rose (referring to the Five Hegemons in the Spring and Autumn Period 770-476 BC: Duke Huan of Qi (685-643 BC), Hegemony of Jin, Duke Wen of Jin (636-628 BC), Duke Xiang of Song (643-637 BC), Duke Mu of Qin (628-621 BC) and King Zhuang of Chu (613-591 BC) and Seven Warring States (referring to Qin, Qi, Chu, Yan, Han, Zhao and Wei, seven states during the Warring State Period 475-221 BC). Then came the great Emperor of Qin who followed the celestial timing, conformed to the geographical favors and aligned with the harmony of man, and thereby unified the land and established the first traditional Chinese Dynasty, the Qin Dynasty (221-207 BC).
Then 汉武帝 (Han1Wu3Di4) Emperor Wu of Han (ruled between 141-87 BC) expanded the land, launched wars to conquer both Southern and Northern territories, and the power of the great Han dynasty swept the Western Regions (referring to regions west of Yumen Pass). In the domestic planning, he organized government systems and laid down the foundation for thousands of years of Chinese culture; in the foreign policies, he opened the access to the Western Regions and thereby spreading the Chinese culture throughout the Eurasian continent. Since then until the Qing Dynasty, the two thousand years of China inherited the empirical government system and paradigm established during the Qin and Han Dynasties.
Then 唐太宗 (Tang2Tai4Zhong1) the great Emperor of Tang Dynasty (618-907 AC), Emperor Shimin Li, who applied the unparalleled wisdom and the divine martial power to eradicate enemies, to stabilize the Central Plains, and to rule the entire land of China to push the five-thousand years of Chinese civilization to its peak. During the great Tang Dynasty, a great nation ruled by a great monarch, and the power of influence reached all over the world. The great Emperor has such an amazing spirit of broad and immense compassion to reach out to all nations in the world, like the vast ocean takes in the water from all rivers; his magnificent confidence and immense generosity shined so brilliantly and exhibited incredible influence and strength, and his glory has been shining throughout the Chinese history!
Then came 成吉思汗(Chen2Ji2Si1Han4) Genghis Khan, the great Khan and founder of the Mongol Empire (Reigning 1206-1227 AC), at the beginning of the 13th century. He and his Gold Family conquered the Western Regions and swept through Europe and Asia, laying down the European social structure and bringing the Chinese civilization to everywhere his power reached. These made it possible for the subsequent centuries of cultural and art renaissance in Europe, and many more, to directly contribute to the great and rapid progresses of the civilization of the western world. Following that, 忽必烈 (Hu1Bi4Lie4) (reigning from 1260-1294 AC), founded the Yuan Dynasty and played out the great historic show of the great Yuan Dynasty in the China’s Central Plains. The territory of the great Yuan Dynasty expanded far beyond the Han and Tang Dynasties, also connected with the greater world stage, and laid down the foundation for the whole world structure.
Then came the great 明成祖 (Ming2Cheng2Zhu3) Yongle Emperor (Reigning 1402-1424 AC) of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AC) and the great Emperor 康熙 (Kang1Xi1) (Reigning 1661-1722 AC) of the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912 AC) and other wise and holy Emperors, who had immense virtue and kindness, talented in both civil and martial art skills, and their glory radiated all directions to reach out to the most remote parts of the land. During these period of history, great feats were accomplished, such cross-sea voyage, conquering Mongolia, Russia and the unification of the entire land. The magnificent Chinese culture started to affect the entire human world.
These wise Emperors and holy Kings throughout the Chinese history created the Chinese history, paved the way, helped people to survive through major crisis, and assured the Chinese traditional culture to be passed on eternally, thereby creating the glory of civilization in China and the entire world. Every dynasty in China was under the great care of the divine who has been orderly establishing and perfecting the inner contents of human culture and thinking which the humankind must have.
4. Immeasurably High Contents with Great Inclusiveness
The cultures of the vast majorities of nations in the world are based on the major religious beliefs of that nation. However, in most religions, believers often claim that the one that they believe in is "The Only True God" and view other religious believes to be cult. For this reason, there were continuous and endless religious wars in the western history. Some scholars even think that the fundamental reason for the wars between different countries in the world is the conflict between different faiths.
In China, however, churches and temples of different faiths stand side by side and coexist in peace. There has never been a serious religious war in Chinese history. And historically those who entered the Central Plains, such as the Mongolians and the Manchurians, also benefited from the nourishment of traditional Chinese culture and even integrated the essence of their culture into the Chinese nation as part of Chinese culture. This manifests the great inclusiveness of Chinese culture.
The divine beings in the universe are consist of the Buddhas 佛 (Fo2), the Taos道 (Dao4) as well as other forms of Gods神 (Shen2) and therefore they have been continuously establishing the concepts of “Buddhas, Daos and Gods” “佛、道、神” in the Chinese culture as well as the concepts of cultivation practices. In the meantime, they also formed the human ethics, various universal values, such as "Dao, virtue, benevolence, loyalty, courtesy, wisdom and faith," and so on.
The cultures of all nations have recorded that the Creator will surely come to save all people at the end of time. If this is truly the case, then it is easy to understand why the Creator has chosen the Chinese culture of "Immeasurably High Contents with Great Inclusiveness" to spread the Law of Ultimate Salvation to save all peoples of all faiths.
On the one hand, such culture paves the way for the world people with different origins of lives and different culture and faith to be able to understand the elements of the Heavenly Law for Ultimate Salvation; on the other hand, it is easier for those who are attached to their own different religions to accept if the Ultimate Law of Salvation is spread in such culture. Of course, from another perspective, such a great inclusive and rich culture must have been systematically arranged by the Creator since ancient times, and it has accumulated, developed and inherited step by step till the present for the very purpose of saving all sentient beings at the last havoc of humanity.
5. Survival Through Havoc
The Chinese traditional culture survived through thousands of years under the protection of the divine and was passed along history until the mid of the nineteenth century, when the Western civilization, relying on the technical advantages brought by the industrial revolution, broke open the gates of China with military forces, leading to the "Changes Never Occurred in the Past Thousands of Years”. Since then, the land of China witnessed continued political turmoil; the Evil Specter of Communism took the opportunity to infiltrate into China. Chinese culture was brutally abused, just like flowers and fruits blown away in a heavy storm, hanging with only the last string of life.
After years of painstaking efforts by the Communist Party, using various political campaigns and the havoc of the ten years of the “Cultural Revolution”, all kinds of violent suppression, the corruption of religion, the abolition of beliefs, and on top of all these, adding the instillation of the Communist Party Culture and atheism, the younger generation in China has long lost faith in Buddha, Dao and God. For people of the older generation, fear totally crashed them to complete silence as the result of massacres and persecution. Traditional buildings, monuments, temples, artifacts and cultural relics were destroyed. Thus, the connection between human beings and the divine was further severed.
But the destruction of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism and other religious sects does not mean that the world cannot be awakened by the divine. The power of the profound inner contents of the Chinese traditional culture established by the divine for humankind and its tenacious vitality are fully manifested at such a time.
After the “Cultural Revolution”, Chinese people had almost totally lost any faith and were living an extremely poor cultural life with an empty spirit. But when people heard such notable broadcastings as 《杨家将》(Yang2Jia1Jiang4) "The Great Generals of the Yang Family",《岳飞传》(Yue4Fei1Zhuan4) "The Biography of Yue Fei", 《三国》(San1Guo2) "Romance of the Three Kingdoms”, 《水浒》(Shui3Hu3) "Water Margin" etc., the streets became deserted. Everyone was sitting at home to listen attentively, not wanting to miss even one episode. Even the police did not have to be on duty. It is the power of the precipitation of the divine culture of thousands of years that rekindled the righteous thoughts and the long-cherished memories in the hearts of the sentient beings.
Why do people show so much admiration towards the "Loyalty" “义” (Yi4) played out during the Three Kingdoms?
Whenever Chinese people mention the Chinese Charter “义” (Yi 4) which means “Loyalty”, they will immediately think of the “义” “Loyalty” played out at the Three Kingdoms Period (184/220 -280 AD): the “义” “Loyalty” between the three heroes, 刘备 (Liu2Bei4) Liu Bei, 关羽 (Guan1Yu3) Guan Yu and 张飞 (Zhang1Fei1) Zhang Fei, who took an oath of fraternity in a ceremony in the Peach Garden (believed to be in the present-day Zhuozhou, Hebei) and became sworn brothers from then on. Their stories were admired and imitated by countless descendants, and their character and conduct in putting loyalty ahead of personal gains and their willingness to even let go of their own lives to protect loyalty also won universal praises. The story of Chancellor 诸葛亮(Zhu1Ge2Liang4) Zhuge Liang assisted Liu Bei, "Spared No Efforts Until Death," set a model for future generations of chancellors who served emperors with loyalty and devotion; Zhuge Liang thus shall be called the Number One Great Chancellor in Chinese history. The great Emperor Wu of Wei, 曹操 (Cao2Cao1) Cao Cao (155-220 AD) was fluent in military strategies, worked day and night to command his soldiers to win the wars in order to unify the northern lands. He recognized Liu Bei’s supreme talent during the time when they were drinking wine and tasting green plums, but did not took advantage of him at time of danger; instead he kept his promise to release Guan Yu; with the loyalty between the Emperor and the Chancellor, he won the hearts of people from lands of all four directions. The “义” "Loyalty" played out during the Three Kingdoms served a key role in standardizing the human morality, human character and human conduct in the entire 5000 years of traditional Chinese culture.
Why are people so moved by the 忠 (Zhong 1) Devotion shown by 杨六郎(Yang2Liu4Lang2) Yang Liulang and 岳飞 (Yue4Fei1) Yue Fei?
Yang Yanzhao (958-1014 AD), also known as Yang Liulang by the Khitans who feared him, was a military general in ancient China’s Northern Song Dynasty. His story of fighting with the Liao and safeguarding the Yanmen Pass, also known as Yanmenguan and as Xixingguan, which is a mountain pass including three fortified gatehouses along the Great Wall, is incredibly splendid and inspiring. Same is the story of the great women from the Yang Family who went to the frontier of the battlefield to fight the enemies to protect the nation. Yue Fei (1103-1142 AD) from the Southern Song Dynasty fought through hundreds of battles with complete victory. He was about to go straight into the Huanglong region to recover all the lost lands, but unfortunately was betrayed by the traitor Qin Hui and thus murdered at the Fenbo Pavilion. The stories of Yang Liulang and Yue Fei became legendary throughout the Chinese history for thousands of years, and even for those Chinese people who did not learn how to read Chinese Characters and thus could not read the history books, they would learn their stories through listening to the story telling and watching the plays, thus learn to see through evilness, to respect loyalists, and to spread the stories through word of mouth to educate the descendants.
During the play outs of the ups and downs in the five thousands of years of Chinese history, there are one after another touching and shocking shows with soul-stirring scenes, which not only has helped the sentient beings to distinguish good and evil, right and wrong, true or false, loyalty or betrayal, thus to preserve the righteousness of Chinese people since ancient time, but also left an indelible mark in the thoughts, spirit, consciousness and blood of Chinese people, which assures that no matter how the Chinese Communist Party attempt to suppress and deceive, nothing can stop the vigor and vitality in the hearts of Chinese people as soon as the light of truth returns.
Among the seven billion people in the world, not everyone believes in religion and not everyone believes in the divine. The Creator wishes to save every human being, but human beings must maintain the basic human morality to be called human. This is also the very reason why the divine behind many religions in the human world have been warning people to keep the baseline of the human morality intact and to wait for the return of the divine.
The day when human morality slips to the brink of collapse is the day when the most devastating disasters come. At this moment, only the divine has the power to stretch out the giant hands that dominate the world to turn things around and save good people from the last crisis.
The reason that the divine established the inner contents of the human culture and the foundation of human morality is exactly for paving the path for humanity to be saved to have a new life, and therefore is the only path for humanity to be able to understand the celestial mechanisms of salvation delivered by the divine at the most dangerous moment. Destruction of the path to salvation is the destruction of mankind.
In the uninterrupted political campaigns, the Communist Party deliberately exterminates the Chinese traditional culture in such a way as to stop all outlets to salvation at the most dangerous moment of moral collapse. When humanity lose such a culture as well as the character and conduct of human morality gained through the influence and education of such a culture, human beings will no longer be able to follow the divine who comes to deliver salvation, nor the Law of Salvation delivered by the divine. Therefore, human beings will lose the last opportunity to be saved.
Chinese traditional culture is the culture laid down by the Creator Himself in China for saving sentient beings at the end of time. This is the special arrangement and mission of Chinese traditional culture.
