An unholy duo

Alexander Solzhenitsyn in his acceptance speech in 1970 for the Nobel Prize for Literature, said, “Let us not forget that violence does not live alone and is not capable of living alone: it is necessarily interwoven with falsehood. Violence finds its only refuge in falsehood, and falsehood its only support in violence. Any man who has once acclaimed violence as his method must inexorably choose falsehood as his principle.”—America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose, page
