 Assertions of Freedom are "Provocative" ONLY to Tyrants.

March 15, 2022:

I tire of hearing Tucker Carlson* and Rachel Campos Duffy asserting that if Canada were to suddenly become a puppet-state of Russia poised to attack the U.S., we in the U.S. would consider it "provocative" and therefore we should deem Ukraine's desire for it's freedom to become safer from Russian tyranny as a form of "provocation" that somehow justifies Putin's war to destroy freedom in Ukraine.  Advocacy of freedom (or assertion of the intention to retain freedom) is intrinsically "provocative" to tyrants seeking to extinguish it.  So what?  Do we deem people hiring armed guards for protection against criminals to be a form of "provocation" of such criminals?  To equate the two circumstances (as do Duffy and Carlson) is to foolishly equate the value of freedom with the evil of tyranny.  It's as wrongheaded as to claim that arming the police should be deemed "provocative" to criminals.  To treat assertions of freedom as "provocative" is to guarantee the ultimate triumph of tyranny over liberty-- the reverse of what Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy championed and what Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky is currently seeking to champion.
