Архипелаг ГУЛаг 1918 1956 Опыт художественного исследования III IV Arhipelag GULagNd mistrust others they would act ignorant they would inform on others either voluntarily out of fear or as a recruited informant they would betray anyone without the blink of an eye become corrupt and cruel In such a society the masses always bending for those in Eagles Claw power out of sheer egoism and survival will throw anyone to the wolves If I can just escape this sticky situation I ll do anything to live Stalin was able through his reign of terror to totally control the masses He was able to do this only because he disposed of all theeople who thought for themselves and were critical of inhumane ways and repression People who saw through the fa ade of communism it was not the rule of the workers and certainly not To each according to his needs it was fascism Superman/Doomsday plain and simple There really is no different between Hitler and Stalin or Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia It is important to repeat that the intelligentsia almost always serves as a bulwark torimitive emotions The masses are easily stirred up and are controlled easily through Summers Family Affair psychology All dictators and regimes fear the intelligentsia because criticism sows doubt And doubt leads to reflecting on what s good and what s bad This is counterproductive to oppression and exploitation Nowadays it is uite convenient to declare that arrest was a lottery Ehrenburg Yes it was a lottery all right but some of the numbers were fixed They threw out a general dragnet and arrested in accordance with assigned uota figures yes but everyerson who objected ublicly they grabbed that very minute And it turned into a selection on the basis of souls not a lottery Those who were bold fell beneath the axe were sent off to the Archipelago and the icture of the monotonously obedient freedom remained unruffled All those who were Women on the Hill purer and better could not stay in that society and without them it kept getting and trashy You would not notice these uiet departures at all But they were in fact the dying of the soul of theeople Waiting for Aphrodite p 642Notice the emphasis on uota figures The Soviet Union was a state that enforced order through rigid control uota figures conseuences net benefits were leading human beings were just a means to reach the desired outcome And the intelligentsia were an obstacle a hindrance since they exposed the insanity of thelanThis also Pirateship Down (Sentinels of New Orleans parallels Hitler s Du bist nichts dein Volk ist alles and Deutschland ber alles the Germaneople were to be sacrificed in order to the reach the desired outcome world domination Lebensraum and the destruction of the Jews Judenfrage Also in this case the intelligentsia was a major nuisance it s just that most of them fled to other The Sand-Reckoner parts of the world those remained either converted to Nazism Heidegger Heisenberg etc or were among the first toerish in campsThe Gulag Archipelago is a timeless monument of History In my opinion it should be Aztlan part of curricula on schools It will open the eyes off all these younger generations ofeople who have grown up in wealth health and rosperity and who take rogress for granted Most of those eople have leanings towards Marxism although it is mostly cultural as opposed to economic Marxism nowadays These eople have no inkling about their own Boyfriends from Hell place in history their ignorance makes them live off the savings of earlier generations and they re suandering everythingretty fast Personal liberty and economic liberty albeit in clearly circumscribed areas are among the most exalted human discoveries ever We should take note of Battered Not Broken past mistakes learn from them and recognize totalitarianism for what it is especially in the age of the internetCf China s implementation of a digital system that rewardseople social credits for good deeds Of course the good is defined by the Party and through in built incentives those in What Ive Become (The Humanity Within Book 1) power can steer the masses to act accordingly You don t want to follow ourolicies and views All right you won t get credits hence you will not be able to live in a city or have a job The fact that Solzhenitsyn made it out of the Gulag alive and blessed us with this book is an absolute gift This is the most influential book I ve read to date in my life A Masterpiece Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil asses not through states nor between classes nor between olitical UML Weekend Crash Course [With CDROM] parties either but right through every human heart and through all human hearts This line shifts Inside us it oscillates with the years And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil one small bridgehead of good is retained And even in the best of all hearts there remains an unuprooted small corner of evil Finally can start reading this again I got a replacement though it be a lowlyaperback reprint as I m no longer wealthy for my 1st edition that the USPS lost when I moved along with 36lbs of other collectible and

assholes delivered the lid of my box in a bag with a snide apology for losing the other 5 sides of the box So we re through Volume Two of this behemoth indictment on the evils that occurred in Russia between the years of 1918 and 1956 As I stated in the review of Volume One the level of emotional intensity at which this series of books is written is Steampunk Erotica pretty unbelievable It s no wonder this book is credited as helping to bring down the Soviet UnionThis volumes twoarts focus on camp and camp life where you end up after interrogation and transit Poker Slave prisons covered in the first book then an unbelievable chapter called The Soul and Barbed Wire Only those can understand us who ate from the same bowl with us Hutzul girlThere is no limit to what should be included in thisart To attain and encompass its savage meaning one would have to drag out many lives in the camps the very same in which one cannot survive for even one term without some special advantage because they were invented for destruction And from this it follows that all those who drank of this most deeply who explored it most fully are already in their graves and cannot tell us No one now can ever tell us the most important thing about these camps And the whole scope of this story and of this truth is beyond the capabilities of one lonely To the Golden Shore pen All I had was aeephole into the Archipelago not the view from a towerTo taste the sea all one needs is one gulpIn all the brightness it is as if there were no sin Indulge (Warm Delicacy, presentit is as if nature here had not yet matured to theoint of sin Prishvin describing the Solovetski IslandsSo we begin at what I gather was one of the first campsbefore the Islands metastasized The Solovetski IslandsHow had it happened that the hares had not been exterminated They would explain it to the newcomer this way The little beasts and birds are not afraid here because there is a GPU order in effect Save ammunition Not a single shot is to be fired except at a Tabloid City prisonerDescribing a night wherein three men executed 300risoners at the cemetery on SolovetskiBy night s end at any rate he was seen washing off the blood soaked tops of his boots one after the other over a washbasinThey were drunk and careless and in the morning the enormous Kirkland Revels pit only lightly covered over was still stirring and movingHere he talks about how a certain Judge Leibowitz of New York acclaimed the Gulag system after he visited itOh what an intelligent farsighted humane administration from top to bottom as Supreme Court Judge Leibowitz of New York State wrote in Life magazine after having visited Gulag In serving out his term ofunishment the To Him Who Sits on the Throne prisoner retains a feeling of dignity That is what he comprehended and sawOh fortunate New York State to have such aerspicacious jackass for a judgeAnd oh you well fed devil may care nearsighted irresponsible foreigners with your notebooks and your ball oint ens how much you have harmed us in your vain Youth, Beautiful Youth passion to shine with understanding in areas where you did not grasp a lousy thingAnd things only got worse in camps after this little Marxist gem was implementedThey dug down deeper into the storage chest of history and dragged out what Marx had called extraeconomic coercion In camp and on collective farms this discovery wasresented with bare fangs And then Frenkel came along and like a devil sprinkling a oison into the boiling cauldron he oured in the differentiated ration Fault Lines pot There was a famous incantation repeated over and over again In the new social structure there can be nolace for the discipline of the stick on which serfdom was based nor the discipline of starvation on which capitalism is basedAnd there you are the Archipelago managed miraculously to combine the one and the otherHere we finally get into some of the authors experiences in his first hard labor campAnd tomorrow would be the same and every day "Six Cars Of Red "cars of red three scoops of black gruel In transit Hunt for 901 prison too we seemed to have grown weak but here it went much faster There was already a ringing in the head Thatleasant weakness in which it is easier to give in than to fight back kept coming closer And in the barracks total darkness We lay there dressed in everything wet on everything bare and it seemed it was warmer not to take anything off like a Chasing After Infinity poultice Open eyes looked at the black ceiling at the black heavens Good Lord Good Lord Beneath the shells and the bombs I begged you toreserve my life And now I beg you Morir por un iPhone - Apple, Foxconn y las luchas de los trabajadores en China please send me deathSolzhenitsyn is describing the common way death occurred in campThe diarrhea takes out of a man both strength and all interest in othereople in life in himself He grows deaf and stupid and he loses all capacity to weep even when he is being dragged along the ground behind a sledge He is no longer afraid of death he is wrapped in a submissive rosy glow He has crossed all boundaries and has forgotten the name of his wife of his children and finally his own name too Sometimes the entire body of a man dying of starvation is covered with blue black Captain China Volume 1 pimples likeeas with Interplay: The Process of Interpersonal Communication pus filled heads smaller than ainhead his face his arms legs his trunk even his scrotum It is so Cast On, Bets Off painful he cannot be touched The tiny boils come to a head and burst and a thick wormlike string ofus is forced out of them The man is rotting aliveBut there is one form of early release that no bluecap can take away from the Private Elisha Stockwell, Jr., Sees The Civil War prisoner This release is death And this is the most basic the steadiest form of Archipelago output there is with no normsIn the autumn of 1941 Pechorlag the railroad camp had a listedopulation of fifty thousand Past Lives, Future Lives prisoners and in the spring of 1942 ten thousand During thiseriod not one Love with Every Beat prisoner transport was sent out of Pechorlag anywhere so where did the forty thousandrisoners go I have written thousand here in italics why Because I learned these figures accidentally from a zek who had access to them But you would not be able to get them for all camps in all CPA Australia - Advanced Taxation periods nor to total them upTalking about checking the dead every single dayThis was seldom like an autopsy a long vertical cut from neck to crotch breaking leg bonesulling the skull apart at its seam Mostly it was not a surgeon but a convoy guard who verified the corpse to be certain the zek was really dead and not If Walls Could Talk (Haunted Home Renovation Mystery, pretending And for this they ran the corpse through with a bayonet or smashed the skull with a big mallet And right there they tied to the big toe of the corpse

sense of itDiscussing escape attemptsBut a man who seriously undertook to escape became very swiftly fearsome Some of them set fire to the taiga behind them in order to get the dogs off their trailIn 1949a fugitive was detained with human flesh in his knapsack he had killed an unconvoyed artist with a five year term who had crossed hisathand had not yet had the chance to cook itIn the spring of 1947 in the Kolymatwo convoy guards were leading a column of zeks And suddenly one zekskillfully attacked the convoy guards on his own disarmed them and shot them both The bold fellow announced to the column that it was free But the Always Be Ready prisoners were overwhelmed with horror no one followed his lead and they all sat down right there and waited for a new convoyAnd then he took up the

forest into two camps What was to be done with the zeks The decision had to be made instantly there was no time to consult with higher jurisdictions The guards refused to release them and they all burned to death That was the easy way If they had been released and escaped the guards would have been court martialedNow we re finally on to Part IV The Soul and Barbed Wire Behold I shew you a mystery we shall not all sleep but we shall all be changed I Corinthians 1551Think Draw some conclusions from the misfortune And all that endless time after all the A Convent Tale prisoner s brains and souls are not inactive In the mass and from a distance they seem like swarming lice but they are the crown of creation right After all once upon a time a weak little spark of God was breathed into

liberation What can it give us after so many years We will change unrecognizably and so will our near and dear onesAnd the thought of freedom after a time even becomes a forced thought Far fetched Strange The day of liberation As if there were any liberty in this country Or as if it wereossible to liberate anyone who has not first become liberated in his own soulHis friend telling him a story while he s in the hospitalAnd on the whole do you know I have become convinced that there is no Contemporary Issues in California Archaeology punishment that comes to us in this life on earth which is undeserved Superficially it can have nothing to do with what we are guilty of in actual fact but if you go over your life with a fine tooth comb andonder it deeply you will always be able to hunt down that transgression of your for which you have now received this blowThe Nuremberg Trials have to be regarded as one of the special achievements of the twentieth century they killed the very idea of evil though they killed very few of the Ethics for Police Translators and Interpreters people who had been infected with itAnd if by the twenty first century humanity has not yet blown itself up and has not suffocated itselferhaps it is this direction that will triumph Yes and if it does not triumph then all humanity s history will have turned out to be an empty exercise in marking time without the tiniest mite of meaning Whither and to what end will we otherwise be moving To beat the enemy over the head with a club even a caveman knew thatAnd that is why I turn back to the years of my imprisonment and say sometime to the astonishment of those about me Bless you Immigration Nation prisonAll human emotions love friendship envy love of one s fellows mercy thirst for fame honesty fell away from us along with the meat of our musclesWe had noride no vanity and even jealousy and Vilfredo Pareto passion seemed to be Martian conceptsThe only thing left was anger the most enduring of human emotions We came to understand that truth and falsehoods were kind sistersThoseeople became corrupted in camp who had already been corrupted out in freedom or who were ready for it Because Incomplete Streets people are corrupted in freedom too sometimes even effectively than in campIn a culture of corruption and liesthe strong get eaten firstYes it was a lottery all right but some of the numbers were fixed They threw out a general dragnet and arrested in accordance with assigned uota figures yes but everyerson who objected The Fin-de-Siècle World publicly they grabbed that very minute And it turned into a selection on the basis of soul not a lottery Those who were bold fell beneath the axe were sent off to the Archipelago and theicture of the monotonously obedient freedom remained unruffled All those who were urer and better could not stay in that society and the monotonously obedient freedom remained unruffled All those who were urer and better could not stay in that society and them it kept getting and trashy you would not notice these uiet departures at all But they were in fact the dying of the soul of the English Warfare, 1511-1642 peopleI ll end with thisLooking back I saw that for my whole conscious life I had not understood either myself or my strivings What had seemed for so long to be beneficial now turned out in actuality to be that which was truly necessary to me But just as the waves of the sea knock the inexperienced swimmer off his feet and keep tossing him back onto the shore so also was Iainfully tossed back on dry land by the blows of misfortune And it was only because of this that I was able to travel the Trauma and Cognitive Science path which I had always really wanted to travel It was granted me to carry away from myrison years on my bent back which nearly broke beneath its load this essential experience how a human being becomes evil and how good In the intoxication of youthful successes I had felt myself to be infallible and I was therefore cruel In the surfeit of After World Religions power I was a murderer and an oppressor In my most evil moments I was convinced that I was doing good and I was well supplied with systematic arguments And it was only when I lay there on rottingrison straw that I senses within myself the first stirrings of good Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil asses not through states nor between classes nor between olitical Resilient Health Care, Volume 3 parties either but right through every human heart and through all human hearts This line shifts Inside us it oscillates with the years And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil one small bridgehead of good is retained And even in the best of all hearts there remainsan unuprooted small corner of evil Since then I have come to understand the truth of all the religions of the world They struggle with the evil inside a human being inside every human being It is impossible to expel evil from the world in its entirety but it isossible to constrict it within each erson As I read this account of the decades of abuses inflicted on tens of millions of those gulag unfortunates I wondered for my character How would I behave were I a zek Would I find my way into the ranks of trusties Would I have survived or died within the camps What if I were a guard or an officer of guards Would I devolve into one of "the monsters to force the zeks out into 40F winter weather insufficiently clothed to labor in the forests "monsters to force the zeks out into 40F winter weather insufficiently clothed to labor in the forests many would die from the task If I were an ordinary citizen fortunate to avoid the camps how many family members friends coworkers or neighbors would I undermine to save my own skin These uestions so far disconnected from today s American lifestyle create some ersonal difficulty connecting with our current social disorders which seem rather trivial in comparison to the world Solzhenitsyn described Where were or are the tears for those tens of millions of souls most arbitrarily subjected to conditions beyond our daytime imagination All these uestions WowThe first volume of Soltzhenitsyn s book was fantastic this one is so much better Yes Footnotes to a Lesson part 3 which consists about 597 of the 672ages drags after a while In it he takes the reader through the Gulag with chapters on the overseers the children and Legitimating Television pretty much every other aspect of the camps We know it is vital to never forget the horrors of 20th century totalitarianism and this book ought to be reuired reading to help us never forget But it is the shortart four where the best of the book comes in Soltzhenitsyn talks about how the camp brought out who Pink edition - Alternative Poetry Books people really are People he argues did not become evil in the camp Rather they were already evil and this brought it out This reminds me of Jesus teachings about those faithful in small things will be given Who are really are when you reoor and insignificant will be amplified if given the chance At the same time Soltzhenitsyn reminds us that it is not just that some are evil for that dividing line runs through each of us fun fact that is the one uote you may be familiar with and he says it twice having said it early in volume 1 How does that work How is it both true that Do you exist Mr Jones? people in the camps who became corrupt already were like that as opposed to those in the campus whoersevered Soltzhenitsyn speaks about a moral core a nucleus and I think that s it We are all capable of horrific things If I look at those camp guards the GLYNSHADOW people whoerformed horrible acts and recognize they are Mastering Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and Exposure part of the same human race that has to be humbling I m just as human as they are I am just as capable of evil for that line goes right through me We need to be honest with who we are and discover that moral nucleus that would enable us toersevere in the worst circumstances As our culture leaves some of its traditional foundations for morals behindits easy to think we re in trouble as a culture May we not be too uick to leave the wisdom of the Bite Of Winter (Faes Captive, past behind This brings me back to Frankl s Man s Search for Meaning which I read recently If the Gulag is too intimidating in its length check that one out first Then come back hereSo slog through the first 600ages and read closely the last 80 Its worth it Volume two was just as soul crushing as Volume I full review to come at the end of Volume III The section entitled The Soul and Barbed Wire certainly makes the journey worthwhile and I am very glad to be reading the unabridged version I started reading this series after a verbal altercation with an individual over my American upbringing and challenged notions about the Soviet Union and its actuality As someone who does not like being challenged on their assumptions unfairly I took up the challenge of reading the canon of the Gulgag in an attempt to gain an awareness of something that apparently I was fundamentally missing Oh had sadly true that statement is How fatefully unaware my assumptions regarding humanity tyranny and Merry Christmas, Baby! personal subjugation truly were
