Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Alexander Solzhenitsyn

As in Russia, so in the West today.

Learn more about Alexander Solzhenitsyn at Wikipedia.

Excerpt:

Solzhenitsyn also harshly criticised what he saw as the ugliness and spiritual vapidity of the dominant pop culture of the modern West, including television and much of popular music: “…the human soul longs for things higher, warmer, and purer than those offered by today’s mass living habits… by TV stupor and by intolerable music.” Despite his criticism of the “weakness” of the West, Solzhenitsyn always made clear that he admired the political liberty which was one of the enduring strengths of western democratic societies. In a major speech delivered to the International Academy of Philosophy in Liechtenstein on 14 September 1993, Solzhenitsyn implored the West not to “lose sight of its own values, its historically unique stability of civic life under the rule of law—a hard-won stability which grants independence and space to every private citizen.”[54]
In a series of writings, speeches, and interviews after his return to his native Russia in 1994, Solzhenitsyn spoke about his admiration for the local self-government he had witnessed first hand in Switzerland and New England.[55][56] He “praised ‘the sensible and sure process of grassroots democracy, in which the local population solves most of its problems on its own, not waiting for the decisions of higher authorities.'”[57] Solzhenitsyn’s patriotism was inward-looking. He called for Russia to “renounce all mad fantasies of foreign conquest and begin the peaceful long, long long period of recuperation,” as he put it in a 1979 BBC interview with Janis Sapiets.[58]

During his life Solzhenitsyn faced many accusations of antisemtism for telling the truth about Jews.

  1. I don’t know if he actually criticized Stalin out loud. This crime (not satire or sarcasm) would usually end in death. Most people sent to the Gulag were innocent of any crime. Some were denounced by lying snitching neighbours who got their bigger apartment as their reward! I.e. lying was well rewarded in the Soviet System and telling the truth was severely punished. Victims were sent as slaves and unpaid labour. They were sent to solve the housing problem. The Soviet Union was better at killing people than building houses for them. For most people the Gulag was a death sentence.

    I intend to read his book about the Jews one day “200 Years Together”. It can not be bought in English (((guess why))) but much of it is available on the Net.
    It is about the 200 years where the Jews eventually destroyed the Tsarist State of Russia and Christianity and many of the Russian people. Nice people! History does not record this crime because the Jews control history just as in the George Orwell novel “1984”.

  2. Read Solzhenitsyn’s books and watch on YouTube the movie “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich”. These will give you a great perspective on what the jew, non-Caucasians, race-traitor YT libtards, and feminists want for us evil YT men. A hell on earth.
