ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN QUOTE

You may recall Alexander Solzhenitsyn was a Soviet dissident sent to a Gulag for anti-Soviet activities, probably because he was a Russian nationalist and an outspoken advocate of the Russian Orthodox Church and harsh critic of the Soviet Union and its Communist ideology. The system always tried to ignore him in favor of Jewish dissidents. The system especially hated him after he came to America and addressed Harvard University in 1978 and gave a harsh critique of Liberal Democracy as well as Communism! Consider his following quote in that regard;

" In recent times it has become fashionable to talk about the leveling of nations, or the disappearance of different races  in the melting-pot of contemporary civilization. I do not agree with this opinion, but its discussion remains another question. Here it is merely fitting to say the disappearance of nations would have impoverished us no less than if all men had become alike, with one personality and one face. Nations are the wealth of mankind, its collective personalities; the very least of which wears its own special colors and bears within itself a special facet of divine intention. " Alexander Solzhenitsyn. (I think we can now see why the system hated him. He dared to suggest nations and races might be ordained of God and that runs counter to the cosmopolitanism globalism that reigns supreme in the Western world.)
