The March of Freedom

In these photos of the struggle for Latvian independence from my friend Miks Ignats, we are reminded that the struggle for freedom is universal. Poland, Hungary, The Czech Republic, the Baltics, Georgia, Ukraine, and now Lebanon, Kyrgyzstan, and yes, Iraq all have risked life and limb to reach for some semblance of freedom. Its success or failure will be measured only in time, but the prognosis is overwhelmingly favorable. The genie is out of the bottle now and the big lies told by the big men of authoritarian regimes are crumbling. Thanks to the Internet, blogs, mobile phones, SMS, instant messaging, and all the other quick and easy forms of mass communication, people finally do have the means to shine a light on all the kleptocrats liars and thugs who have compelled their lives for too long.
