by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Saturday, July 14, 2018

At a Liberty Fund conference late last year, a new friend recommended that I read Alexandr Solzhenitsyn’s 1978 commencement address at Harvard. It was in large part his critique of Western, and especially U.S., society. I had read it decades earlier but had no clear memory of it. So I reread it twice.
