他出身英國上層社會,詩人、科幻迷,牛津畢業後參加共產黨。二次大戰從軍,負責情報,發現史大林屠殺兩千萬人民。之後成為蘇聯研究權威、歷史大師、極端反共。常常依據和別人一樣的資料做出與人不同的正確判斷。
他認為史大林的殘暴是列寧的延續,只不過變本加厲。也就是說,史大林並非特例或變種。
以上照片攝於2010年,他93歲。

無量義經
 
 
以下一段對個人頗有啟發,是以分享:
是經復有『十不思議功德力』不?
大莊嚴菩薩言:「願樂欲聞。」
佛言:「善男子!
       第一:是經,能令菩薩未發心者,發菩提心;
       無慈仁者,起於慈心;
       好殺戮者,起大悲心;
       生嫉妒者,起隨喜心;
       有愛著者,起能捨心;
       諸慳貪 (小氣) 者,起布施心;
       多憍慢者,起持戒心;
       瞋恚盛者,起忍辱心」
節錄自無量義經

 自由與民主名言
Quotes on Freedom and Democracy
 
"沒有比自由更美妙的,但是學習如何運用自由, 沒有比它更難的。"

"Nothing is more wonderful than the art of being free, but nothing is harder to learn how to use than freedom."

 
Democracy in America, Alexix de Tocqueville
 
▉美國第二任總統,亞當斯,曾說: "民主總來無法持久。它馬上把自己消耗掉、摧殘掉。從來沒有一個民主不自殺的。"

John Adams, America's second president, once pronounced that "democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did ot commit suicide"

 
 "What's gone wrong with democracy", The Economist, March 1, 2014
 
個人淺見是:
1.他顯然錯了。
2.他的警惕使開國元勳戒慎恐懼,採取許多預防措施。所以美國民主延續至今。
3.美國的民主是個混合體,並非民主原型。所以才能活到今天。
4.希望他所說,不要在數百年後延遲實現。

Finland's lesson for Ukraine
Rene Nyberg, International New York Times,  SEPT. 2, 2014
What is Finland's secret for keeping its independence, democracy, market economy, and membership in the West while being a neighbor of the former SU or today's Russia? Listen to its former ambassador to Moscow.
 
芬蘭,作為前蘇聯現俄羅斯鄰居,從未被紅軍佔領過,仍保有民主制度,有市場經濟,是西方陣營一員 。祕訣何在?且聽前芬蘭駐莫斯科大使娓娓道來。台灣呢?
