Remembering Alexandr Solzhenitsyn: Soviet Atheist repression now engulfs the West

Herland Report: Soviet Atheist Repression: As totalitarianism and a remarkable intolerance of diversity of opinion is implemented in the United States, the memories of the repressive atheist Soviet system and its Gulag prisons are worth revisiting.

(Article republished from

The Christian thinker, novelist and Nobel Prize laureate 1970, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn spoke vividly about the results of the atheist experiment in the Soviet Union.

Solzhenitsyn is referred to as the symbol of the contemporary Orthodox Christian revival in Russia, as he experienced more than sixty years of suffering under the harsh Soviet regime and came out undefeated by it. His monumental book The Gulag Archipelago explains how atheism repressed the human soul in a system that persecuted religion like religion has never been persecuted before, writes historian and bestselling author, Hanne Nabintu Herland in her WND column.

Maybe his most famous quote, which also sums up his worldview is: “The failings of human consciousness, deprived of its divine dimension, have been a determining factor in all the major crimes of this century. Men have forgotten God, that is why all of this has happened.”

In the West, we are likely to enter a similar phase of strict repression in the years to come, as the centralization of elite power is marked by a Soviet style intolerance towards Conservatives, traditional religion and anyone who practices critical thinking.

Soviet Atheist Repression: In the Templeton Lecture in London, 1983, Solzhenitsyn says: “I have spent fifty years working on the history of our Russian Revolution; read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval.”

The Gulag Archipelago, by Alexandr Solzhenitsyn explains what happens when God is forgotten and men allow evil to rule. Buy it here.

“But if I were asked today to formulate the main cause of the ruinous Revolution that swallowed up some sixty million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”

The Russian Revolution have to be understood on the backdrop of the main traits of the entire twentieth century: “The failings of human consciousness, deprived of its divine dimension, have been a determining factor in all the major crimes of this century.”

He recalls World War I, when a strong, wealthy and world-leading Europe fell into a rage of self-mutilation:

“The only possible explanation for this war is a mental eclipse among the leaders of Europe due to their lost awareness of a Supreme Power above them. Only a godless embitterment could have moved ostensibly Christian states to employ poison gas, a weapon so obviously beyond the limits of humanity.”

“The same kind of defect, the flaw of a consciousness lacking all divine dimension, was manifested after World War II when the West yielded to the satanic temptation of the “nuclear umbrella.”
