art, freedom, human rights and democracy

Not a bad story in The Christian Science Monitor on the subjects above. A quote from Alexandre Solzhenitsyn’s Nobel Prize speech drew me to it.

“Art serves to battle lies and preserve the moral history of a society without the transitory and debasing rhetoric of bureaucrats.”

Have a safe Fourth of July, y’all.
