”Vladimir Bukovsky spent many years in Russian labour camps and psychiatric prisons for defending human rights. He came to Britain in 1976. He lectures and writes on the old Soviet system and the EU. Bukovsky was one of the first to expose the use of psychiatric imprisonment against political prisoners in the Soviet Union. He spent a total of twelve years in Soviet prisons, labor camps and in psikhushkas, forced-treatment psychiatric hospitals used by the government as special prisons.”

”In the Soviet Union we had the Gulag. I think we have a Gulag in the European Union also – an intellectual Gulag known as political correctness. When anyone tries to speak their mind on questions of race or gender or if their views differ from those approved, they will be ostracized [bannlyst, utfrusen] – this is the beginning of the Gulag, the beginning of your loss of freedom. In the Soviet Union they told us we needed av federal state to avoid war, in the European Union they are telling you exactly the same thing… I have lived in your future – and it did not work.”
Jag vill förresten passa på att tipsa om Fredrik Lindströms artikel i Aftonbladet: ”Ikea och H&M erövrar världen – med rotlöshet som vapen”.
