Moral Courage

Whittaker Chambers left the communist movement at a time when he thought it was going to win. Solzhenitsyn defied the Soviet totalitarian state when it looked impregnable. That is the difference between moral courage and moral cowardice.

  1. Whittaker was a total scumbag. If I recall, Alex didn’t like us any better than the Commies.

    I wonder why the story of Julius and Ethel working for Israel and trading American Nuke info for the release of Russian Jews to the promised land never got a lot of press.

  2. I’ve never heard that story. I wonder if that’s what motivated Jonathan Pollard?
