Alexander Solzhenitsyn Quote

“I would like to call upon America to be more careful with its trust ... and prevent those ... because of short-sightedness and still others out of self-interest, from falsely using the struggle for peace and for social justice to lead you down a false road. Because they are trying to weaken you; they are trying to disarm your strong and magnificent country in the face of this fearful threat. ... I call upon you: ordinary working men of America ... do not let yourselves become weak.”

Oh, that's nice. Too, too general and vague to be worth anything. The here quote is too short to stir any heart felt action. What is his idea of what is weakening America? What is a fearful threat? America is an abstract that can neither trust or not-trust (only individuals can do that). I can use my own observations to fill in the blanks but, it would take volumes.

He was prescient.

A most sincere comment which alas will go unheeded...

A warning, Compared to the Russian Gentiles and Jewish relationships. " Men have forgotten God " . A moral man, living by, and adhering to a good conscience. The heart is oracle, as the conscience bears witness. Religion and culture, dividing factors of any nation. Faith the most powerful thing in the universe. The United States of America, founded upon faith in the God of Abraham. So why hate the Jews, " Salvation is of the Jews " KJB

Solzhenitsyn makes it clear "using the struggle for peace and for social justice to lead you down a false road" is something to be vigilant against.
