Is it true that 'Falun Gong' does not care about politics?


Absolutely not.

Let's examine what Li Hongzhi has said. He says, "Existing human society has deteriorated to its extreme point. Hence, no one cares about it"; "Now, social problems are emerging layer upon in an endless, stream. No government can solve them. Ethnic problems, problems between countries, contradictions between ethnic groups and burgeoning social crimes are headaches which no government can cure"; "The laws formulated by mankind place mechanical restrictions on people and shut them up...people are controlled like animals; they have no way out, and no one can find a way out"; "I am the only person in the world who can spread the orthodox Law of Buddha"; "My law-bodies are so numerous that they are beyond calculation"; "I can look after as many people as I want, maybe the entire human race." Li Hongzhi also boasts that he was wiser than Lao Zi, Buddha and Christ, he is the only person who can "deliver people to the Heavenly Kingdom," "realize the wonderful society of mankind," and "build a spiritual paradise."

All this shows that Li cares about political affairs and intervenes in them so as to put his political ambitions into practice.
