After being such an ardent fighter for telling the truth and exposing the atrocities inflicted by the Soviet Union, in such works as, "The Gulag Archipelago." he has changed directions quite drastically.
Being awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1970, he has not received much acclaim since then.
The first sign of Solzhenitsyn turning to the dark side, speaking in terms of Star Wars, came after President Bush visited Ukraine and paid tribute to the victims of the Holodomor 1932-1933, he launched a memorably waspish attack on George Bush.
Solzhenitsyn's later statements have demonstrated an increasingly nationalist anti-western tone, and he appears to be a fan of President Vladimir Putin, who gave him a literary award last summer.
Funny how people can switch sides for the prizes they receive. I have a cracker jack surprise myself, which I would like topresent to this nobel literary laureate for his absconding from reality. To read more about the true facts of the Holodomor, please click here.
To finish off here is a self proclaimed quotation from the same man who seems to have changed his orientation and objective in life, go figure.........
"I have spent all my life under a Communist regime, and I will tell you that a society without any objective legal scale is a terrible one indeed. But a society with no other scale but the legal one is not quite worthy of man either."
Alexander Solzhenitsyn -
