Christ is risen!
You can read about Fr. George Calciu of Romania. Two of my former parishioners lived in the same apartment building he lived in. He has spoken in the U.S. upon occasion.
Somewhat off topic, but do you know that 1984 was not so much a work of fiction, as a work of non-fiction masquerading as a work of fiction? Blair was aware of what was being planned for the world and for our society by the powers that be in British and American intelligence and his book describes the very world they were planning to bring in.
In fact, almost all of the "planks" of their plan have already been introduced. He was not so much a prophet, as a whistle-blower who couldn't get his non-fiction whistle-blowing published and so turned to fiction.
You could also look at St. Benjamin of Petrograd, or the life of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Or, wait 12 more years and look at what happens in the United States and there may be many examples to emulate, from within re-education camps and whatnot.
Pardon the rambly response.
