Welcome to the American Gulag
Sally Zelikovsky, Frontpage Mag, Feb 2, 2021

The wall, the gulag, and the empire were inescapable physical reminders that the mind, body and soul of the individual were irrelevant. Free will to create and think for oneself was squelched by the State. Morality was dictated by the State. Independent thought challenging Soviet dogma was subversive and duly punished.

In contemporary America, where the walls are closing in on the individual—obliterating traditional notions of freedom—we find ourselves crossing the threshold into an American-style gulag, where the fortifications that have shored up a centuries-long quest for a more perfect union, are beginning to buckle.
