Solzhenitsyn - A Prophet for our time

John Couretas has published a tribute to the late Alexander Solzhenitsyn in Solzhenitsyn and His Critics - The Acton Institute. The critique sounds alarm bells for those who wonder about the bland global culture of shallow western consumerism and reality tv shows that our children are growing up in.  We are already seeing a reaction towards the manifestation of this gluttonous global marketplace.  The rise of militant Islam and various ethnic  nationalisms draw strength from what they perceive as a decaying West that seems to have forgotten its history and lost its sense of purpose.
