Polish Writer Stanislaw Lem Found Creative Ways to Resist Totalitarianism
MARCH 01, 2007 by Lawrence W. Reed
One year ago the world lost a gifted science fiction writer and critic of totalitarianism when Poland's Stanislaw Lem died in March 2006. Lem was best known internationally as author of the classic Solaris--twice adapted for the silver screen--but the majority of his fiction featured damning allegories against the suppression of the human spirit. Bruce Edward Walker, cultural critic and editor of Michigan Science, says Lem "skillfully dissected the 20th century's foolhardy efforts to create utopias by stifling individuality and economic freedoms."
