Solzhenitsyn essay: Live Not By Lies
Solzhenitsyn explains how the best way we can find back against a corrupt system is by not participating in its lies, even if it causes us some material discomfort.

Quote:We have been so hopelessly dehumanized that for today's modest ration of food we are willing to abandon all our principles, our souls, and all the efforts of our predecessors and all opportunities for our descendants—but just don't disturb our fragile existence. We lack staunchness, pride and enthusiasm. We don't even fear universal nuclear death, and we don't fear a third world war. We have already taken refuge in the crevices. We just fear acts of civil courage.


But there are no loopholes for anybody who wants to be honest. On any given day any one of us will be confronted with at least one of the above-mentioned choices even in the most secure of the technical sciences. Either truth or falsehood: Toward spiritual independence or toward spiritual servitude.


You say it will not be easy? But it will be easiest of all possible resources. It will not be an easy choice for a body, but it is the only one for a soul. Not, it is not an easy path. But there are already people, even dozens of them, who over the years have maintained all these points and live by the truth.

Every time we keep our mouth shut because of some benefit, we keep the system alive, the very system that will soon come after us.

“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

RE: Solzhenitsyn essay: Live Not By Lies
The Sovjets knew very well that the way to break a man's spirit is to make him repeat lies he knows are lies. My theory about transgenderism and such things is the same. It's a large scale psy-op to demoralize people. Once everyone arounds you start telling lies, lies you know are lies, crazy lies, then a profound feeling of isolation and derealization can set in.
