As reported in yesterday’s Independent the Adam Smith Institute recently lost a great friend and a heroic fighter for freedom. George Miller-Kurakin was an anti-communist activist who during the 1980s was not only a close associate of the ASI but in orchestrating a wide range of direct actions behind the Iron curtain he inspired a generation of young freedom fighters during what turned out to be the latter decade of the cold war.
A larger than life character with a great sense of humour, George was thoughtful, generous and staunch. Strategic, visionary and an outstanding executioner of field-craft and tactics he always believed that Communism would eventually collapse under the weight of its own manifest contradictions. How right he was. Rest in peace.
