Review by Hieromonk Seraphim
by Alexander I. Solzhenitsyn; in 3 volumes; Harper & Row, 1974, 1973 and 1978;
This is the "ideology" of 2Oth-centurv man, the self-made god, and The Gulag Archipelago is the history of this 'triumph of Nihilism' by one who has lived through it. Given the spiritual state of the contemporary world, it is inevitable that a Soviet-type Nihilism sooner or later will swallow up the whole world; where is there a power to oppose it?...

The point is emphatically made here that Apostasy from God equals godless totalitarian tyranny.

Gulag: Soviet Forced Labor Camps and the Struggle for Freedom
The term “GULAG” is an acronym for the Soviet bureaucratic institution, Glavnoe Upravlenie ispravitel’no-trudovykh LAGerei (Main Administration of Corrective Labor Camps), that operated the Soviet system of forced labor camps in the Stalin era. Since the publication of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago in 1973, the term has come to represent the entire Soviet forced labor penal system. Concentration camps were created in the Soviet Union shortly after the 1917 revolution, but the system grew to tremendous proportions during the course of Stalin’s campaign ... .
Gulag camps existed throughout the Soviet Union, but the largest camps lay in the most extreme geographical and climatic regions of the country from the Arctic north to the Siberian east and the Central Asian south.

The Elizabeth Dilling Foundation
Box 659, Chicago 90
Who is Elizabeth Dilling?
We were appalled, not only at the forced labor, the squalid crowded living quarters, the breadline rationcard workers' stores, the mothers pushing wheelbarrows and the begging children of the State nurseries besieging us.
The open virulent anti-Christ campaign, everywhere, was a shock. In public places were the tirades by loud speaker, in Russian (our friends translated). Atheist cartoons representing Christ as a villain, a drunk, the object of a cannibalistic orgy (Holy Communion); as an oppressor of labor; again as trash being dumped from a wheelbarrow by the Soviet "Five-Year-Plan"--these lurid cartoons filled the big bulletin boards in the churches our Soviet guides took us to visit.
In the Museum of the Revolution we were shown a huge world map. As our Guide turned a switch, lights came on indicating the places all over the world where Communist Party headquarters were then functioning. Proudly our Guide announced: "Our world revolution will start with China and end with the UNITED STATES".
"O, NO! Not THAT", was my thought. But, country by country, the boast has been steadily advancing. I took pictures of the anti-Christ posters on the porch of St. Isaac's Cathedral in Leningrad.
Russia Changes My Life
We were taken to the beautiful Church of the Redeemer in Moscow which was then, we were told, about to be dynamited to make way for a "Palace of Soviets". There was a display of full-sized mannikins dressed in the robes of the Church carrying on the Good Friday Footwashing ceremony. Our Guide rasped: "This was to show that if the Archbishop could wash the feet of the humble priest the poor should endure their sufferings without complaint! Religion was always for the suppression of the people, to keep them working from dawn to late at night under the lash!"
I thought of our Savior washing the feet of His Disciples as an example, and telling them that he who would be great among you should be the servant of all (John 13:13-15; Matt. 23:11). I glanced up at the exquisite stained glass window of Christ, about to be demolished, and a little tear trickled down my cheek as I thought: "I can never hate You like that!" (I did not know then that the Pharisee Talmud gives Him FIVE sadistic deaths today).
Staying at my hotel was the representative of a foreign country. He told me of the police terror; how the last manager of that hotel had been whisked off in the middle of the night by the "Black Mariah"--like millions of others never to be seen again. Some of our party had been taken to the police station; they had laughed in a movie theatre. They were released when they explained that they had laughed at a private joke, not at the picture (which was Soviet-made). After this, and more, I returned to the "NICE" North Shore of Chicago where the "intelligentsia" were rendering brainwashed reverence to the "great Soviet Experiment".
Behind the backs of the careless Guides I had taken movies of the rickety trains, etc., in Russia. By chance I started showing these movies to patriotic audiences, my husband running the projector as I told the story. Articles written for a little local newspaper were reprinted by the DAR and larger and larger groups called for my talks: District meetings of the Legion; the Military Intelligence; churches from coast to coast. I was recommended for all Chambers of Commerce, and spoke for the Minneapolis, Cleveland, Los Angeles, etc., groups. I broadcast over the Moody Bible Institute radio and its head became my closest friend to her death. Dr. Ironside introduced me as the only woman he had ever asked to occupy his pulpit in the Moody Church. I spoke in the great church of Dr. W. B. Riley, organizer of the World Fundamentalist Assn., my defender to his death. I frequently spoke in Detroit churches and on numerous occasions was entertained at the executives' table at the Ford plant. Henry Ford (who never changed his mind about the role of Jewry) had me write (1939) a report on the U. of Michigan (80 pages). He contributed that year $5,000 to the cost of my office labor which cost $12,000 that year. The head of the National Sojourners had me airmail my two books to Sen. Royal Copeland to give to Vice Pres. Garner who, I was told, stayed up all night reading them and had his friend Cong. Dies of Texas start up the Dies Committee on Un-American Activities (later called the House Com.) as a result.
The hub of world Jewish anti-Christ power, the financial and industrial power best described in Rev. 18:11-, is the AMERICAN JEWISH COMMITTEE with its B'nai B'rith brotherhood, and its "secret police", smear and ruin arm, the Anti-Defamation League. After having pushed a reluctant USA into World War II--to spread Communism across the earth, and with its first world base, Soviet Russia, as our "ally", it was decided to crush all ANTI-COMMUNISTS by trying them as "Fascists, Nazis". A series of indictments against some 30 anti-Communists, of which I was one, was engineered by the American Jewish Committee, in 1942, 1943, 1944. The 1942 indictment never came to trial. The 1943 indictment was dismissed in Washington by Judge Adkins. Only the 1944 indictment went to trial under a stooge judge Eicher. An unbelievable farce was staged without any legality or fact. After the death of judge Eicher, the case was dismissed by Judge Bolitha Laws with the scathing denunciation that it had been a crime to hold those people on trial all that time without a single piece of evidence in accordance with the charge being introduced by the prosecution against ANY defendant. The Communist press had been gloating that the "sedition trial" was part of the "Moscow Purge trials" then in session all over Europe. I reproduced the item on one of my Bulletins, sent to every Congressman.
Background of E. D.
Travel in more than 60 countries convinced me that the USA had the greatest system of government, and was the most fortunate nation on earth. I did not want it Sovietized, collectivized. Careful research and documentation have resulted in the fact that nothing I have ever printed has, to date, been refuted by friend or foe.

Gorbachev and comrades, including Comrade Barak Obama:
These are the soft line Communists. They appear likable. But the facts of the matter are these:
1) Gorbachev was and is a formal member of the Communist Party.
2) Gorbachev was and is a KGB member. Note this: the KGB goes through name changes, they used to be the GPU and NKVD and then they became security police and then whatever is current. The name doesn't matter. The origin and purpose does. The origin is the Jewish dominated secret police of the Communist east starting with the co-opting of the 1915 Russian Revolution transformed into the Communist Revolution and then in the following decades (the 1920's, 1930's, 1940's, 1950's etc. etc. etc,). Gorbachev, by the way is Jewish. They hold the reigns of power in Russia.
3) In 1984 there is the speech Gorbachev made to the Russian Communist Party in Moscow. It was recorded and made available in the west. Amazingly people just ignore it. In this speech he told the party chiefs not to worry about whatever he said or did in the west but to trust that he was a loyal party member and that what he was doing was only part of the final war on the west. Part of that act was all the disturbances in the U.S.S.R., especially in the Government in the last half of the 1980's. So they became Russia instead of the U.S.S.R. and let go of some of the poorest outlying provinces and allowed everyone to think that the Ukraine became independent (when all it would take to reunite the Ukraine and Russia is a phone call). Big deal. They have continued to develop their nuclear armaments and still export those to whoever they choose to.
4) Gorbachev, just before departing from Russia, was holding intense pan-synchretist religious gatherings. Communists aren't personally religious, but they don't hesitate to use religion for their own devious ends. That is a principle of the Communist war on the West established by the Italian Communist Antonio Gramsci many decades ago.
5) Gorbachev in his voluntary exile originally based his current operations in San Francisco and the East Coast in a collection of U. N. NGO based organizations and endeavors which are a collage of social/cultural/religious pan-world fusion of all systems synchretism. This is in keeping with the Gramscian model of subverting religion et al for Communist ends. Gorbachev's main base is the Gorbachev Foundation.
The further history of the KGB's agent provocateur at large -- Mikhail Sergheevich Gorbachev, former President of the USSR and current President of the International Green Cross (part of the Greens in Europe a Socialist Communist front that are very destructive in politics in Europe).
You will note this below in the mandates they operate by, they are serious: "It [the Gorbachev Foundation] decides, in an autonomous manner, directions to take regarding the development of both Russia and the rest of the world"
The Gorbachev Foundation
The Gorbachev Foundation, an organisation of socio-economic and political studies, was founded in January, 1992.
The official inauguration of the Foundation took place on March 3rd, 1992.
The founders of the Gorbachev Foundation were:
::. Mikhail Sergheevich Gorbachev, former President of the USSR and current President of the International Green Cross;
::. the National Branch of the International Foundation for Survival and Development (then presided over by the scholar Evgheni Velikhov);
::. the Association of Foreign Politics (then presided over by Eduard Shevardnadze);
:.. the Economic and Social Reforms Foundation (then presided over by the scholar Stanislav Shatalin);
::. the academician Alexandr Jakovlev, and
::. Grigory Revenko, former director of the President¹s Administration of the USSR.
The Gorbachev Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors. The President of the Council is Mikhail Gorbachev. The Vice-President is Irina Virganskaya (M. S. Gorbachev¹s daughter).
The Foundation is a non-profit organisation and does not operate under the auspices of any State government.
It decides, in an autonomous manner, directions to take regarding the development of both Russia and the rest of the world, in accordance with the laws of the countries in which it operates. Both body corporate and citizens of any class or condition of life are allowed to participate in the activities of the Foundation.
Branch offices of the Gorbachev Foundation currently exist in the USA, Germany, Italy, Holland, Canada and several other countries. They are all autonomous from an administrational point of view, yet closely linked to the headquarters in Moscow by common ideas and visions.
The Foundation also maintains ties with other organisations of the same type.
Although The Gorbachev Foundation started out in San Francisco this is where they migrated to at one point.

03.10.2006 Ex-Soviet leader Gorbachev says US ''non-democratic''
Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev said that the United States had become "non-democratic" and stressed that Washington should rely more on international institutions.
"The United States has to rely more on international institutions and public opinion and not only on its allies," state-run HINA news agency quoted Gorbachev as saying on a visit to Croatia.
"It means that the US has become a non-democratic country. We wish that the United States would use partnership as the best solution" for global issues, he said.
Gorbachev spoke at a conference on the reforms he had launched in the 1980s and which eventually led to the fall of the Iron Curtain separating eastern and western Europe.
The one-day meeting, held in the Croatian coastal town of Primosten, was focusing on 20 years of "perestroika" -- a program of democratic and economic reforms that Gorbachev started in the former Soviet Union.
It was attended by Croatian President Stipe Mesic, former French and Hungarian foreign ministers Roland Dumas and Janos Martonyi as well as ex-Romanian President Emil Constantinescu.
Former US president George Bush who was also invited addressed the participants through a video broadcast message.
Gorbachev's reforms known as perestroika first liberalized and eventually helped the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Gorbachev, who led the Soviet Union during the 1985-1991 period, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990.
The point is this, a very strong bond has been resumed between Russia and Israel that had been a large basis of Israel's coming to power by war and bloodshed and pillage in the first place. That is Russian Communist support. That bond is there today. It is no problem for the Israelis to make sure they don't target Russia with their nuclear missiles. What this is heading for is: the United States spread way too thin, and a massive coalition of Russian lead countries attacking U.S. troops or interests or simply pushing us out of any influence anywhere, after the U.S. has wasted way too many resources in Iraq and has removed a country (Iraq) that would have never compromised with Israel; and who knows how many others.
Gorbachev is generally thought of in a positive way. After all, didn't he end Communism and isn't he promoting democracy and the saving of the environment? Gorbachev is a very charismatic personality and has U.S. officials, along with the public, eating out of his hand. Let me share with you some of his quotes and plans for the future of the world.
In 1989 Gorbachev was quoted speaking to the Politburo saying the following " In October 1917 we parted with the old world rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, the world of communism. We shall never turn off that road." He also said "Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant change within the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our aim is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep." During 1989 when the Berlin wall came down he proclaimed " I am a convinced Communist. For some this may be a fantasy but for me it is my main goal"
James Garrison ( President of the Gorbachev Foundation ) says " we are going to end up with world government. It's inevitable... There's going to be conflict, coercion and consensus. That's all part of what will be required as we give birth to the first global civilization."
THERE YOU HAVE IT THEIR AIM IS THE SAME AS ALWAYS TOTAL WORLD DOMINATION AND TOTALITARIAN COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT UNDER THE ZIONIST THUMB

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
