Alexander Solzhenitsyn Dies


The man who opens the eyes of the West to the horrors of Stalin's Gulags has died. The AP write:

His "Gulag Archipelago" trilogy of the 1970s shocked readers by describing the savagery of the Soviet state under the dictator Josef Stalin. It helped erase lingering sympathy for the Soviet Union among many leftist intellectuals, especially in Europe.

Maybe in Europe, but Stalin's followers are stronger than ever in the United States.
