Gulag a history

The Gulag a vast array of Soviet concentration camps that held millions of political and criminal prisoners was a system of repression and punishment that terrorized the entire society embodying the worst tendencies of Soviet communism In this magisteri.

    I read history books because of my undying belief that as a human being I am responsible for anything that humans do If murder happens it is because I have it in me as well If kindness happens it is because I am capable of kindness This belief does not put me or humanity at the center of anything I think anthropocentrism is one of the worst ways of explaining our existence but rather connects me to every other
