Na morte de Soljenitsine, por Pedro Correia:
Quando outros calaram, por cobardia ou conveniência, ele expôs-se - servindo-se de um papel e de uma caneta para denunciar um regime iníquo. Estaline mandou deportá-lo para um campo de concentração siberiano, Brejnev deu-lhe ordem de expulsão do país.
Solzhenitsyn, RIP, por Andrew Sullivan:
His accounts of what torture and dehumanization do to people - the enforcers and the victims - helped me better understand the utter incompatibility of freedom and torture of any kind, anywhere. If I had to point to one author who inspired my horror at what Cheney and Bush have done to America's integrity these past few years, it would be Solzhenitsyn.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn dies at 89, por Tyler Cowen:
He did not in every way favor liberty, but he did more for liberty than almost any other person of the late 20th century.
The Best of Solzhenitsyn, por Bryan Caplan:
But if any writer can make future generations of Russians look on the Soviet era with the horror it deserves, it's the man who stared down the Soviet Union at the height of its power - and outlived it by 17 years.
