Sohrab Ahmari: The Perversion of Freedom and the Spiritual Crisis of Our Age [Premiere on 05/11 at 7pm ET]
In the 1960s, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn secretly penned “The Gulag Archipelago,” an indictment of the Soviet system that was so profound and damning that it helped usher the downfall of Soviet communism.
Solzhenitsyn saw the evils of communism with stark clarity. But after he was exiled and moved to the United States, he would shock the world with his critique of the West, specifically the excessive freedoms he witnessed and the “abyss of human decadence.”
What does true freedom mean? Is it possible for a man in a gulag to actually be freer than a man enjoying the greatest wealth the world has to offer?
So argues Sohrab Ahmari, op-ed editor of the New York Post and author of “The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos.”
