Alexander Solzhenitsyn is well worth a listen. We in the West simply don't have a single political thinker or representative that talks about the moral vacuum at the heart of consumerism, controlled music, sports obsession and political mendacity parading as Statesmen.
I've never heard anyone talk as hard core as this. Real conviction is so rare these days.
The Harvard crowd really gets it as well. They wouldn't today. It's all rooted in MBA's and crooked lawyers scooping up profits at the expense of social justice and equality of opportunity.
Greed in other words.
