I am presently reading Solzhenitsyn's works, a biography about him, Anne Applebaum's "Gulag: A History" and a biorgraphy of Stalin in an attempt to deeply understand what went so terribly wrong, and how we should live now with this knowledge.

Today Nabeel Yasin, one of Iraq's most celebrated poets, was describing his victorious struggle under Sadam Hussein and reading his beautiful poetry on the radio. A caller complained that he wanted to hear only positive things!

The struggle against repression and denial goes on. Too many can not hear and see the power of truth and the beauty and inspiration of those who stand against fear and denial.
