Comment: He's a hero,

(See in situ)

He's a hero,

because he did what he thought was right, and risked his life and liberty to do it. End of story.

Will his actions actually advance the cause of liberty? Probably they will, but maybe not. That's irrelevant. When a man does what he believes is morally right, no matter the cost and no matter what "authority" gets pissed off -- THAT is relevant.
