Alexander Solzhenitsyn has died.
The 20th century, with its villains and heroes, is over. Though it was the bloodiest in history, civilization survived, due to people like Solzhenitsyn energizing the West to struggle against collectivism. We have new enemies and new internal challenges, but for the sake of those who have gone before, not less than for our own, we have to defend reason and liberty.
Requiescat in pace.
