“I would like to call upon America to be more careful with its trust to prevent those pundits who are attempting to establish fine degrees of justice and even finer legal shades of equality (some because of their distorted outlook, others because of short-sightedness, still others out of self-interest)to prevent them from using the struggle for peace and social justice to lead you down a false road. They are trying to weaken you; they are trying to disarm your strong and magnificent country in the face of this fearful threat — one which has never before been seen in the history or the world. Not only in the history of the country, but in the history of the world.”

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Warning to the West, 1986
