I am not a Libertarian. I am not a proponent of an absolute freedom of speech. I believe that certain forms of censorship are necessary to keep the peace and maintain the rule of law and the function of society. The current situation in Russia and the laws being passed are not this type of censorship. Many would refer to these laws as a veiled attempt to suppress opposition to government power. They would be wrong. There is nothing being veiled. This is a blatant, obvious attack against the people of Russia in the name of absolute government rule.
We should all be offended. We should be appalled. We should defend against these laws with all our might. Evil can and will spread and no one and no nation is immune.
