Mike Chen and Falun Gong - A different perspective

A lot of threads here discussing Mike Chen's connection to Falun Gong. I'm sure there are folks here that are hearing of Falun Gong for the first time. I have seen many incorrect depictions of what Falun Gong is and what is Mike Chen's connection to Falun Gong, so I just want to spell it out for people. My source is that I am a Falun Gong practitioner and I have been practicing for 15+ years. So sure you can think I'm biased, but what I'm saying is the truth from my point of view.

First, Yes, Mike Chen is a Falun Gong practitioner.

Second, No, Falun Gong is not a "scary, dangerous cult" as one commenter has described.

Falun Gong is a qi gong/cultivation system founded in China in the 1990s by a man named Li Hongzhi. Li Hongzhi now lives in New York because he is essentially exiled by the Chinese government, but he has amnesty here in the US. Falun Gong's teachings are based on Buddhist and Daoist principles (i.e., karma, reincarnation, belief in the divine, belief in traditional values, personal responsibility, moral quality, and the principles of "Truth, Compassion, and Forbearance").

History in China

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began a nationwide crackdown on Falun Gong in the late 90s and labeled the practice as a cult. If you talk to people from mainland China, you will hear various accounts as to why the CCP began the crackdown, but the general consensus is that Falun Gong was becoming too popular too fast. Accordingly, Jiang Zemin (then leader of China) feared that Falun Gong might serve too undermine the CCP's absolute authority and its ability to control people in China.

Since then the CCP has initiated endless wave after wave of persecution campaigns to demonize, slur and eliminate Falun Gong from. Think arrests, torture, coercion of family, and even execution. By the way, their attempts have entirely failed and instead drawn the ire of the majority of the governments around the world. Falun Gong is very much still alive and well in China, just more underground. Practitioners have to worry about safety and anonymity so as not to be "disappeared" in China.

Heard of forced organ harvesting in China? Unlike what one commenter hear has suggested, it is very true. An international tribunal last year concluded that beyond any reasonable doubt the Chinese government has essentially allowed a system of forced organ harvesting to occurr in China for over a decade that targets primarily Falun Gong practitioners.

What are some lesser known gong show races?

Simply put, we all know about the 2008 Brickyard 400, last year’s fall Talladega race or the 2005 Coca Cola 600, races that are absolute shithouses and are debatable to the end of time. However what are some other races that are controversial, have high attrition, and/or have a lot of insane and unusual stuff happen in them?

My pick is the 2005 Dollar General 300. This 200 lap Busch race had 14 cautions, 2 red flags, and only 20 cars finish at the end with even less having no damage whatsoever. This race was ran at Charlotte during the levigation fiasco so the load on the cars was so great that it was causing the right rear tires to blister after only a few laps of full speed racing. A very interesting event to re-watch. Any others that come to mind?

What is “Falun Gong”?

My Chinese friend recently read about the great Shen Yun performances. Halfway, he saw something about the group “Falun Gong”. He assumed his parents would know about it. But his parents wouldn’t talk about it, they kept saying it was “bad” and wouldn’t let him read anymore on it. He DMed me about this. I saw a documentary or video about it, saying that it was a weird organization, some things about “race mix=bad, no medicine?, delusion?” And some things like “persecution, good intent?, etc” about it. He also doesn’t understand why talk of it is forbidden, his parents are conservative mainland tbh. I just want some clearance on this and for him, thanks

What does Falon Gong want with our (American) boomers?

I have heard so many references from boomers in my life (parents included) to Epoch Times or NTD News.

The sites themselves seems innocent enough. Vaguely pro Trump, very anti China. Is this a money laundering scheme or something? My folks actually get a print edition delivered and I think it's free

What are some resources/arguments I can use to explain to Christians that the Epoch Times media outlet is owned by the Falun Gong cult and should be viewed with skepticism?

In both Reddit and in real life, I’ve noticed a huge number of conservative Christians I know have recently become huge fans of The Epoch Times news articles and videos. As someone who’s had friends and family get tied up in cult movements (both Christian and non), this greatly concerns me.

I’ve been trying to argue, both on Reddit and in person, that while the Falun Gong might currently align with American Christian conservatives on some issues (mainly the danger of Communist China), I get a ton of pushback from people who believe ET is an awesome unbiased source and/or their agenda is nothing to be wary of.

Let me emphasize this isn’t a blanket hostility towards non-Christians, or Buddhist or Taoist roots the Falun Gong hearken to, and I’m not calling for censorship or limitations on religious freedom. But as far as I understand, the Falun Gong are a flat-out cult with an egotistical prophet and coercive methodology mixed with heretical fusion beliefs. But I would greatly appreciate it if people could recommend reading materials or offer suggested lines of argument that conservative Christians would consider credible, that I can go on to use to convince others to at least be cautious in trusting the Epoch Times.

Has anyone else given up on their gong fu and just grandpa brews everything?

Over the Christmas break my partner had an unfortunate accident with my gaiwan lid which meant I haven't been able to brew gong fu style for the past few weeks. Initially I was super angry and thought that my tea drinking was ruined until I could order a new gaiwan online.

However, after a couple of weeks using this Kamjove glass tea mug from AliExpress I'm considering not replacing the gaiwan and just grandpa brewing everything. It seems to work well for green tea, black tea, oolong, pu erh. In fact, whatever I brew in this thing tastes great! I love the fact that there's no fuss, I can fill it up three or four times for every batch of leaves and keep getting drinkable tea, it's so simple to clean up and try something new. I've been exploring so many more teas than I usually would because there isn't all the hassle of a gong fu "ceremony" which would normally mean I only drink tea when I have some time to spare.

Anyone else feel the same way?
