RIP Solzhenitsyn

He was a great man — one of the greatest of our age. To my mind there can be no doubt that had the West heeded his prescient warnings in his famous Harvard Address, the world today would be a far better, saner, freer place. Many years before Soviet Communism fell, Solzhenitsyn had already discerned the deeper crisis: the “tilt of freedom in the direction of evil.”

Requiescat in pace.
