Solzhenitsyn speaks

I read this excerpt from speech by Alexander Solzhenitsyn in 1978. It's intriguing in it's relevance to today. The man has always been a great thinker, his novels superbly crafted and full of psychological insight. Reading this speech is awesome because he could just as well have been commenting on society today. What a pity our politicians don't have the intelligence and insight of this man.
