Russian anarchist and religious/social philosopher Nikolai Berdyaev.
He originally became a Marxist, and was exiled to Siberia for criticizing the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church in 1913.
After the Russian Revolution in 1917, he objected to the Bolsheviks’ totalitarianism. He even gave Felix Dzerzhinsky, the head of the Cheka (Soviet secret police) a dressing down about the problems with Bolshevism. He was expelled from Russia in 1922 and went to Berlin, eventually settling in France in 1923.
March 18, 1874 - March 24, 1948.
