Don't really like politicians so that would be a no.

Couldn't agree more. I have no affection or respect for those who want to run other people's lives. Put in in particular has no interest in individual liberty. He would probably chuckle at the phrase.

I do think Putin is a genius as far as geopolitics. His speeches on world order and history are always interesting and much more nuanced and informed than any us politiician. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valdai_speech_of_Vladimir_Putin

Other than that he's a murderous dictator, mainly concerned with holding on to power. I don't know if there's an off ramp for him. He's killed so many and committed so many crimes if his opposition ever takes over he'll be either executed or put in prison for life.

I'm halfway through the gulag archipelago right now. Fascinating look into the soviet mindset.

I agree. (Other than the murderous dictator part, I simply haven't looked into much facts about him, so no opinion there.) But in general, I don't see the appeal of worshiping politicians. I have seen some short clips of him and he seems very intelligent and is a real man.

How is Gulag Archipelago? I've been putting off reading it, since I figured that I wouldn't get much practical knowledge out of it. Is there anything to learn other than "communist dictatorships" are bad?


There is so much to learn from gulag archipelago, I'm sure I'm not qualified to communicate it all.

First, You have to put the book in context. Solzhenitsyn was a true believer in the communist state. He was a decorated soldier, wounded twice in the red army. I think he participated in rounding up the kulaks. Then he was thrown in prison for 10 or 15 years and subjected to every nasty technique they had, when both they and he knew he wasn't guilty of anything. So he had to reconcile this. How could the system be believed in do this to him? So he painstakingly lays out how communist/collectivist ideology will always lead to this. So there's that component.

Up until the book came out in 1973 no one really knew what was going on in ussr with the prison camps.
Solzhenitsyn took careful notes through all those years in prison of minute details of everything that's happened. He lists all the ways they were kidnapped. He lists about 30 interregAtion techniques. He also has the names of all the people this happened to. So, the book really blew a whole in the idea that the ussr was this communist utopia, which some in the west were saying.

I expected all that, I expected to read about the horrors of the Siberian prisons. But I didn't expect the writing to be so good. it's really gripping. You feel it when he's thrown in a cell so small the men have to turn over at the same time.

The book is also about humanity, philosophy, good and evil. He talks about the psychology between the guards and prisoners. He never blames the guards.

On of my fav quotes so far.
"If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?"

And one from the end, when he completes his own ideological transformation.
"Oh, Western freedom-loving "left-wing" thinkers! Oh, left-wing labourists! Oh, American, German and French progressive students! All of this is still not enough for you. The whole book has been useless for you. You will understand everything immediately, when you yourself ? "hands behind the back" ? toddle into our Archipelago."

White Nationalist, worked in the Reagan administration, prevented the IRS from imposing racial quotas in private schools.  He had the balls to speak out against diversity aka white genocide and all that garbage.  Need more men like him.
