that he should change focus to organ harvesting Given that Falun Gong is a secthe should change focus to organ harvesting Given Falun Gong is a religion sect that not only mandates daily exercises but also forbids drugs and alcohol its adherents make for some extremely high uality potential organ donors and that s where the Venn diagrams meet a book that is about organ harvesting in China is very much also a book about the organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners They not only represent a high percentage of the Laogai jail system population but also the cream of the pool of organs so to speakSo what we have here is one of those books that present themselves rarely a A Silent Ocean Away: Colette's Dominion lot how the Great Deformation by David Stockman is a poorly written poorly argued discursive bad read but is regardless the best book of 2013 because it is to this day the only place where you can go read if you know where toook and skip a The Magic Question lot of the dross exactly what Corporate Euity Withdrawal is and how it is the most accurate description of what is wrong with our current brand of capitalism aot A Writer's Reference with Writing about Literature with 2009 MLA and 2010 APA Updates like if you wanted to read what pushing on a string means you once had to read John Maynard Keynes truly awful dense and self important General Theory of Employment Interest and Money I m afraid that if you want to read about the persecution of Falun Gong the persecution of the Uighurs or one single interview about organ harvesting in China Ethan Gutmann s book is the only show in town And you get 50 interviewsNow 50 interviews is nothing I hear you say Not so I d argue In a world where David Cameron the prime minister of the United Kindgom had to go on all fours to China to beg for forgiveness for having previously muttered something about human rights in a world where contrary to the very well articulated warnings of important thinkers such as Daron Acemoglu we pretend that we will transform the Chinese dictatorship by doing business with China a guy who publishes the results of 50 interviews that prove beyond reasonable doubt that China isi viciously persecuting a cult with 50 million membersii engaging in systematic organ harvesting for profitis clearly somebody with enough courage to merit everybody s respect There s tons of money to be made writing books which explain how China willead the world how it has the model that points to the future etc A guy who has that opportunity but choses instead to ive a ife of relative poverty and research human rights abuses deserves our recognition and respectHere s a wonderful piece of circumstantial evidence in support of the author s thesis Israel does not allow its citizens to travel to China for transplantsAnd now I know how come the Chinese ead the world in immunosuppressants practice makes perfect they say How disgusting The Slaughter reads ike dystopian fiction Truly horrifying and infuriating The banal evil of the totalitarian state of China is a horror that is difficult to contemplate What s infuriating is that nothing will or can be done about it This book will not get the arge audience or notice it deserves America is much infuriated at this time Dec 2014 that North Korea may have hacked Sony because of a half rate comedy Meanwhile for decades wealthy and powerful Chinese and possibly wealthy foreigners are being supplied organs harvested from ive donors by China s imprisoned political dissidents Mindblown I m astonished because I only came across the matter of mass organ harvesting in China over a week before I started reading the book His book is concise and ays down the facts ike they are and is an eye opener As a doctor it s scary for me to imagine that an entire fraternity would turn to butchering and murder for financial gains The impact it s had on me I cannot put into words Is China just another Nazi Germany In my 2 cents opinion the information was true but the structure of the book can be compromised and coined This is fiction than an observatory reading matter And recently the author inveighed the city major of Taipei without ZERO proof in order to promote his book making the credibility of the book is uestionable If people ike fiction and novel the book is good to read Otherwise I incline to read some information without fabricating. N Gong Tibetans Uighurs and House Christians uncovering an ageless drama of resistance eliciting confessions of deep betrayal and moments of ecstatic redemption In an age of compassion fatigue Gutmann relies on one simple truth those who have made it back from the gates of hell have stories to tell And no matter what baggage the reader may bring along their preconceptions of China will not survive the trip From the Hardcover editio.
Read · PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ë Ethan GutmannA WOIPFG Investigation Report on the Chinese Communist Party s Ongoing Crime of Live Organ Harvesting against Falun Dafa Practitioners VI Uphold Justicehttpwwwupholdjusticeorgnode404 The Slaughter is incredibly well written and engaging to many who don t know about the situation in China and so is a great introduction to one of the most egregious state sanctioned crimes in human history At the time of its publication one had yet to find a text that could with its compelling narrative voice capture a reader s interest and help them piece the fragmented puzzles which would ultimately make its compelling narrative voice capture a reader s interest and help them piece the fragmented puzzles which would ultimately make the body of evidence and help one understand that organ harvesting is definitely taking place in China while giving readers an understanding of how individuals were able to survive the system as well as the bigger picture of the organ transplant apparatus and the estimates as to the rate of forced transplants At the time of this book s publication the majority of the world was still uestioning whether forced organ harvesting was taking place in China s public hospitals even though convincing research had already been released way back in 2006 by David Matas and David Kilgour on the topic The Slaughter would provide the reader with ample evidence to conclude uneuivocally on the topic For information on the issue and an update to Gutmann s book one can go to endtransplantabuseorg where Ethan has since collaborated with Matas and Kilgour and produced an updated report called Bloody HarvestThe Slaughter An Update This is because since The Slaughter s release research came to ight and the scale of organ harvesting as estimated by Gutmann in this book pales in comparison to the updated figures The text itself is incredibly comprehensive so may only appeal if you are ooking for the most recentaccurate details and figuresI would still recommend readers new to the topic of organ transplant to read this book however Gutmann s The Slaughter is a testament to his journalistic work integrity and style and speaks volumes not
just on the topic of organ harvesting but also about Gutmann as a journalist I would recommendon the topic of organ harvesting but also about Gutmann as a journalist I would recommend book to anyone who wants to read something of substance those who are interested in investigative journalism and those who enjoy reading for the sake of reading good writing This is one such book This book was written by a white man who freuently apologizes for speaking NO Chinese while interviewing with Chinese speaking media He has absolutely no evidence for his claims against the Taipei mayor s involement in organ harvesting claiming that he doesn t have any recordings of his conversations because thats what off the record means When you watch him in interviews with the Chinese and Taiwanese media it is clear he knows there is no basis for many of the claims he makes Americans who don t speak Chinese take every word he says as if it was uttered by god Another monolingual basic white man getting famous cuz he s a white man who spent a bit of time in Beijing As a white woman who speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese I saw this book as nothing than an infuriating ook into how a fraudulent white man abuses bilingual contacts in China to make a name for himself This is all too common in China and Taiwan I can t believe he was nominated for a Nobel Prize and I ook forward to watching him get sued for slander This book is much needed to wake up the world about this terrible crime against humanity commited by the rulling gang in ChinaBut to be fair and balance it should also examine the systemic extermination of the Native American that is being carried out since the early history of North America until nowCurrently this policy is still going full speed even though no organ of the victims is harvestedThe Native Americans especially who dissent and oppose to government
