【Truth from an Insider 內情報告】Faking with True Materials 真材實料的造假


While reading my friends Matthew Robertson and Jacob Lavee’s article “China’s Organ Transplant Problem” in “The Diplomat” today(http://thediplomat.com/…/03/chinas-organ-transplant-problem/), I came upon this sentence: ”Such inconsistent accounts of donor data indicate that these official claims simply cannot be taken at face value.” Suddenly I remembered a true story that I have never shared before; and felt that I should share it now. 
今天看《外交家》上「中國的器官移植問題」這篇文章時(http://thediplomat.com/…/03/chinas-organ-transplant-problem/),裏面有這麼一句話:「如此前後不一的器官捐獻數字顯示,不能(中共)官方說什麼就信什麼。」看到這裏我不禁連連點頭,想起北京女子勞教所裏一個「真材實料」的造假故事。
The story happened inside Beijing Female Forced Labor Camp in 2001, when I was imprisoned there for practicing Falun Gong. The food was terrible. One day the menu said that we were going to have “chicken with potato” for lunch. A fellow inmate signed and said, “When can we have ‘chicken with chicken’?”
那是在2001年,我因修煉法輪功被關押在勞教所裏。勞教所的伙食非常差勁。有一天食堂菜譜上寫著中午將供應「雞塊燒土豆」,一位同室的難友嘆息道:「什麼時候給我們吃『雞塊燒雞塊』呀?」
I didn’t quite get her humor, as I was still new there. But later when we did get the “chicken with potato” into our bowels, I understood: There was barely any chicken; but all potato pieces.
我當時不太理解她啥意思。等這個「雞塊燒土豆」打到碗裏時,終於明白了:原來這裏面沒什麼雞塊全是土豆。
However, several months later, when there were visitors in the labor camp, we were suddenly given so many pork ribs to show to the visitors how well we were treated. The amount was way too much more than usual, we just couldn’t finish it. But we weren’t allowed to leave any food uneaten, or to take it back to our cells. And the time for eating was extremely short. When the stop command was given, we had to stop eating sharp.
幾個月後,有一天勞教所來了參觀人員,參觀內容包括我們的伙食及進餐狀況。於是乎,那天我們不僅吃上了從來沒見過的紅燒排骨,而且量給得那叫一個多呀,堆在碗裏像小山一樣,在規定的時間內絕對吃不完。但勞教所裏規矩挺大,不許剩飯菜,也不許將剩飯剩菜帶回監室,且「停吃哨」一吹,必須立刻放下碗筷。
So, on that day, eating a lot of meat, which should have been what we dreamed for, became another type of torture. I nearly threw up time and time again. A non Falun Gong inmate beside me just pretended that she accidentally dropped her bowl to the ground to avoid being tortured in that way. However, when she cleaned away the wasted pork ribs, she almost cried: what a pity that such “treasure” was wasted that way! And sure enough, since then we had never had the luxury to see any trace of pork ribs again!
在這種情況下,平日裏朝思暮想的「大塊吃肉」成了一種折磨。在拼命快吃的時候,我好多次都差點吐出來。我旁邊的一名非法輪功學員乾脆假裝不小心把碗打翻了,碗裏的排骨一古腦全掉地上。她匆匆打掃時,眼裏含著淚花,心中一定在爲如此「暴殄天物」而大爲難過。她的猜測是對的,從那以後,我們再也沒見過紅燒排骨的影兒。
What’s more, the visitors were none other than supervisors and fellow police officers from other labor camps. This means that even supervisors and comrades had to be deceived. 
So, can one ever expect any truth from Chinese propaganda or official numbers?
更過分的是,那天的參觀者也不是什麼「外人」,全是勞教系統的領導,和其他勞教所的警察而已。也就是說,連領導和「戰友」,也是必須要欺騙的。我們還能相信任何中共官方的數據和宣傳嗎?
As far as I am concerned, almost everything is faked, or faked to a certain extent in China. The faking is everywhere; and people are faking without even realizing or knowing it. Faking has become almost second nature for many people. It would be strange if somebody just gave out “unpolished” figures or stories!
造假在中國是如此普遍,甚至已成爲人們的第二本性了。如果誰把不經「整理」或「修飾」的數據或事實真相就這麼隨便發布出去讓人看,那才怪呢!
