  • He was not a Catholic, but I am not quoting him regarding religion.  He had many things to say regarding government terror operations such as the current COVID19 op, and we might be able to learn from him, especially as regards group psychology.

    I encourage you to read his work, especially "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich".

  • “Men Have Forgotten God” – The Templeton Address
    by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    More than half a century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of older people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.

    Since then I have spent well-nigh fifty years working on the history of our Revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval. But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous Revolution that swallowed up some sixty million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.

    What is more, the events of the Russian Revolution can only be understood now, at the end of the century, against the background of what has since occurred in the rest of the world. What emerges here is a process of universal significance. And if I were called upon to identify briefly the principal trait of the entire twentieth century, here too, I would be unable to find anything more precise and pithy than to repeat once again: Men have forgotten God.
    The failings of human consciousness, deprived of its divine dimension, have been a determining factor in all the major crimes of this century.

    ...

    Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, “Godlessness: the First Step to the Gulag”. Templeton Prize Lecture, 10 May 1983 (London).

  • Solzhenitsyn was just saying what anyone here could say, it's just shows how there are so few real Catholics in the world today, that we are impressed by hearing someone say it. He was just another one-eyed man, for didn't even save his own soul, he died outside of the Church.

    "In the country of blind men, the one-eyed man is a king"
    The Vatican II church - Assisting Souls to Hell Since 1962

    For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Mat 24:24
