Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Solzhenitsyn and ObamaCare

Remember when I read The Cancer Ward? It is always satisfying after reading a book to stumble on references to it in other places. As we enter the eleventh hour of the health care fight in America, Solzhenitsyn's novel is a prescient warning.

The Wall Street Journal cites the Soviet-era novel which had plenty to say about government-run health care in today's editorial. In addition to that, they reprint a 1996 essay by free-market economist Milton Friedman (1912-2006), which specifically recalls the message of Solzhenitsyn's Cancer Ward. If more Americans actually read books by Solzhenitsyn, such as The Cancer Ward, we would be better off for it.

So right you are.
As difficult a read as this can be, or books like it, it is so worth the time.
