My Life as a Dissenter

Former political prisoner Vladimir Bukovsky shares his experience as a dissident in the Soviet Union and voices his opposition to those who assert that political oppression ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall.He sees the same patterns of repression in countries all around the world today—he warns that even those countries that transitioned away from communism are now backsliding into oppression. Bukovsky holds up the incomplete transition of the Soviet Union as a cautionary tale and argues that a complete rejection of authoritarian ideologies is necessary to forge a truly free society.
