ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN COULD NOT BE REACHED FOR COMMENT:

Shot: How to find books in authoritarian states: head for dark, dusty corners — Censorship and intimidation can make life hard for academic researchers. You need to know where to look for hidden truths.

—Headline, the London Guardian, April 19, 2016.

Chaser:

  • Arthur Ransome wrote from Russia for The Guardian and other publications. He knew and supported Lenin, Trotsky and the Bolsheviks. He was a friend of the butcher Dzerzhinsky.
  • The Guardian supported Stalin, and sacked the brave Malcolm Muggeridge for telling the West about the genocidal Ukrainian Famine (when perhaps 7 million people were deliberately starved to death by Stalin).
  • Today, The Guardian opposes the war on Islamic fascism and calls for appeasement.
  • The Guardian and Left-wing mass murderers: a love story, Sean Thomas, 3 Oct 2013. – Lenin, Milosevic, Mao, the Soviet Union, the KGB. And that’s without getting started on the Islamists.
