"ONE WORD OF TRUTH OUTWEIGHS THE WORLD.”
I hesitate to listen to the music you share here, because I KNOW it will rip out my heart, and I don't want to cry.
Thank you for this. I have an unread copy of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's "The Gulag Archipelago" that I purchased sometime in the last year. I remember when it came out back in the 1970's and the response of my father and older brother. During and after the time they were reading it, I remember how it weighed on them.
I think I need to take the challenge I placed upon myself by purchasing a copy, and sit right down and commit to the time to read this book. But I admit it. I have angst. The reality of what he and others faced under the Stalinist regime of the USSR is formidable. A testament to the horrors of what human beings can inflict on one another.
Truly beautiful music by Alma Deutscher, but it has had the effect I feared: Tears, melancholy, with all the encompassing questioning of what is going on in this world?
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was my favorite author in college in the 70’s. He gave me peace when I was listening to my l biased left wing professors whom didn’t like me to question their opinions ( my grades suffered in some classes because of that). I’ve read all his books and each of them helped me overcome the ‘resistance’ as you stated in a previous essay.
Lie Until You Win = Main MAGA business model. The leaders will do/say anything to convince the followers to give them their money, power, and vote.
