In what should be properly called "East Asia Holocaust", the criminal communist regime in China has caused immeasurable misery and deaths of innocent lives. More than 70 million people lost their lives due to murder, torture, persecution, starvation.... And this misery/atrocity is continuing today as the current persecution and murder of the Tibetans, political dissidents and Falungong practitioners persist under the same criminal regime. Even today, the Chinese people refuse to, or are unable to, or don't dare to face their own inescapable responsibilities in tolerating, assisting and directly involving the crimes and atrocities initiated by the communist regime. This is the root cause of why the Chinese psyche is still pathological today and not able to return to normal.
If the German people can have courage to establish "Holocaust Memorial" in order to face their own responsibilities in tolerating and assisting evil in the past, in order to repent and return to being a normal and free society, why can't the Chinese do the same?! --- Kai Chen
Yesterday I attended my daughter's high school graduation. I am moved every time I see those happy faces of healthy human beings, with joy, dignity and freedom expressed without fear and inhibition. I am very grateful that my children can live a life of freedom in America.
In the "Father-Daughter Dance" after the ceremony, I talked to Mr. Steven Spielberg whose daughter was in the same class with mine. I walked to him and thanked him for his decision not to participate in the opening ceremony of Beijing Olympics this summer. And I gave him an Olympic Freedom T-shirt, just to show my appreciation. I told him that I hoped President Bush will follow his example and not go to Beijing to participate in the opening ceremony.
Another classmate of my daughter came and talked with me after she read my book. Knowing her Jewish background, I equated what the criminal Chinese communist regime has done to the Chinese population with what Hitler and Nazi Germany had done to the Jewish population in Europe - the Holocaust. From now on I will use the proper term of "East Asia Holocaust" to describe what the Chinese communist regime has done and is still doing to the East Asian population. This includes what the Pol Pot had done to the Cambodians and what the Kims has done and is still doing to the Koreans. They had all been under the tutelage of the Chinese communist party.
The "East Asia Holocaust" is very real and it should be documented as such. The willing executioners during WWII in Germany should take their own responsibilities in facilitating the rise of Hitler and Nazi regime. The willing executioners in China, today as well as in the past, should also bear the responsibilities of tolerating, facilitating and assisting the communist party in its schemes of murder and torture of innocent people. Without such an admission, such a remorse, such a repentance, without establishing a "Communism's Victims Memorial" in China, without taking down all the symbols of Mao, other communist criminals and the communist party-state from the landscape of the mainland, the Chinese population will remain a "Sick Man of the East Asia", sick in body, sick in mind and sick in spirit.
The Chinese individuals must take their own responsibilities and stop being victims and willing executioners in crimes and atrocities against humanity. Repent - you will be forgiven and have a chance for salvation. Refuse to repent - you will steadily descend into hell and disasters/tragedies of immeasurable magnitude are waiting for you. The choice is yours.
