Alexander Solzhenitsyn 11 December 1918 – 3 August 2008

Solzhenitsyn in the Gulag

Solzhenitsyn in the Gulag

Yes it was a sad day.  The man who wrote “The Gulag Archipelago” has passed on.  I loved that book as much as one can “love” or “enjoy” a book written about the depths of human misery.  He found a way to write some of the most beautiful prose, poetry almost to the human depravity and cruelty of Communism.   It was so filled with horror that only the soulless man could read it and not shed a tear.  He wrote about life under the Soviet system and the brutality of life in the Gulags.  If you have not read the book I strongly recommend it, especially for anyone who doesn’t fully understand the insanity of Marxism.  People laughed at Reagan when he called the Soviet Union the “Evil Empire” read it and you will know he was right.

Some people stood up and spoke the truth while others cowered in fear, and they paid a heavy price for such words.  We say “Never Again” about one to many things yet watch as they happen still and do nothing.  Solzhenitsyn spoke out against a system people still try to glorify and create.  A system that is still with us today while we pay it no mind and go on with our lives.  The Gulags are still alive and running in this world while we are still just sleeping.

I wish him all the best in the next life, and that his truth will never be forgotten in this one.
