Awarding a Dissident

I didn't want to let this pass on my blog, so I too honor Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet and congratulate him on winning the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom. In light of recent events in which 70 youths were arrested for wearing a bracelet that said "cambio" I believe this becomes even more relevant for the dissident movement.
Marc @ Babalu, has a great post on what it is that Dr. Biscet believes.
"To defend the inalienable rights of the human race, we understand the need to put limits on government to prevent the undermining of those rights. It is because of this that we have become activists in this organization – to establish in our country the rule of law, so that each man and woman may be fulfilled as complete human beings."
