and there was no thread for him on the reactionist alternate reality forum.
A champion of liberty and human rights. Will be missed by many.
Communism was defeated by "the resistance of Being and man to manipulation." Vaclav Havel
"We may approach democracy as we would a horizon, and do so in ways that may be better or worse, but it can never be fully attained." Summing up, he declared himself neither an optimist ("because I am not sure everything ends well,") nor a pessimist ("because I am not sure everything ends badly") but, instead, "a realist who carries hope, and hope is the belief that freedom and justice have meaning...and that liberty is always worth the trouble."
Never heard of him.
I will wiki him and see what is popping up.
