"Man has forgotten God, that is why this has happened," was Solzhenitsyn's response when questioned about modern cultural. A Russian author, Solzhenitsyn was imprisoned for eight years by Joseph Stalin. He wrote "The Gulag Archipelago." He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1970, but was not allowed to leave Russia to accept it until the Soviet government expelled him from his country on this day, Feb. 13, 1974. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn warned: "I ... call upon America to be more careful. ... Because they are trying to weaken you ... do not let yourselves become weak."
