Jamie discusses Arkhipelag GULAG, the Russian title of The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Your host, Jamie Kelso, himself learned numerous new things in the course of our two hours together, including the fact that: Arkhipelag GULAG is now mandatory reading in Russian high schools; Elizaveta Voronyanskaya, one of the typists of The Gulag Archipelago was tortured by the KGB to reveal the hiding place of her manuscript, and hanged herself after revealing it; Solzhenitsyn’s devastating point in his Gulag trilogy is that slave labor is inevitable and inherent in Leninism, Bolshevism, and communism itself, rather than being a “Stalinist aberration”; and Solzhenitsyn believed that the U.S.S.R. could not function without the Gulag. One of today’s themes is that in some ways our situation as White patriots is actually NOT worse than it was in the recent past, including the recent past lived by zeks (prisoners) like Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, born in 1919, who died a hero in 2008 in Moscow.
