The man who opened the world’s eyes to the horrors of the Stalinist gulag, and wrote the classic, The Gulag Archipelago, knows about having everything taken from you. Here is his quote.

“You only have power over people so long as you don’t take everything away from them. But when you’ve robbed a man of everything, he’s no longer in your power – he’s free again.”

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
