No western Naturrechtler committed iure divino to freedom and religious tolerance can be at ease with Solzhenitsyn, so I am not. (Anti-Communism is not enough; one must be for liberty.) He was, however, an extraordinarily brave man, a veteran of the Great Patriotic War, a friend of Rostropovich (memory eternal!) and deserving of every salute from his beloved country at his obsequies. He brought honour to Russia, and it is fitting that Russia brings honour to him.

I've read two of his books : One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and The Gulag Archipelago. I am a huge fan of these works and I admire him for his courage in detailing the incomprehensible acts done during the dark times in Russia.
