The following interview with Dr. Jamie Glazov was conducted by Dr. Paul Kengor through the venue of “V&V Q&A,” an e-publication from The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College.

Kengor: Jamie Glazov, welcome to “V&V Q&A.”

Our goal today is to talk about your new book, Showdown With Evil: Our Struggle Against Tyranny and Terror. But before we get to that, I want to introduce you to our readers. First off, for many years, our writers at Grove City College, including myself, have contributed to your fearless website, FrontPageMagazine.com. Tell us about FrontPage and its mission.

Glazov: FrontPageMag.com is on the frontlines fighting the terror and culture war. We are primarily about exposing-and stopping in its tracks-the enemy at home and abroad. In other words, we bring attention to the danger and evil of radical Islam and to those forces on our own territory who aid and abet this Unholy Alliance. By informing the world about this deadly and malicious enemy we face, we seek to undermine its totalitarian impulses and objectives.

Kengor: Please also tell us about your fascinating background, and specially your father’s story-and where we can read more about your father.

Glazov: My dad and mom, Yuri and Marina Glazov, were brave dissidents in the former Soviet Union who stood up against one of the most evil regimes in history. They put their lives on the line for political prisoners who were being tortured and oppressed by the KGB and they fought courageously for freedom of conscience. You can read more about them and their heroic struggle here.

Because of this background and my respect for their noble efforts, I have dedicated my life to fighting for liberty, opposing the despotic forces who seek to annihilate it, and to standing up for those heroes who languish in gulags and prisons for their belief in truth and freedom.

Kengor: When the Cold War finally ended, what were your father’s thoughts? And, more specifically, was he hopeful that Americans would learn the true lessons of the Cold War and the horrors of the Soviet experiment and communism generally?

Glazov: My dad, like my mom, was exhilarated with the fall of the Soviet Empire, or what we thought was its fall. They thought the truth would come out, that there would be Nuremberg-style trials for the communist monsters who had committed so many barbaric crimes against humanity, that the communist system and ideology would be punished and delegitimized for its inhumanity, and that the seed of this evil, which is the socialist idea itself, would be exposed and refuted for the evil that it represents and engenders. Alas, this did not happen; the same communist criminals rule Russia today, the Left is unrepentant in the West, and the true lessons of the Cold War have not been absorbed by the West.
