Quote of the day—Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

It’s a jungle, the consciousness of an orthodox Communist. It’s impossible-to make sense of it.

  1. It makes sense to me– It’s evil wrapped up in a pretty package with a bow and labeled as good. Accept it, open it, and all hell breaks loose. It’s not complicated.

    • Solzhenitsyn wasn’t talking about the package of communism. He was talking about “the consciousness of an orthodox Communist”. It’s the thinking process of an orthodox communist that is “complicated” (or more accurately, “impossible to make sense of”).

      In the particular context in which he said this he was talking about a fellow inmate in a slave labor camp who tried to claim he wasn’t a slave because he was not a slave to any particular person or group of people but rather the slave of the state. Which, somehow, made him not really a slave.
