Freedom is, at best, a means to an end - and freedom is only good when the end is good.
By contrast, totalitarian tyranny (such as now rules the world) is intrinsically and necessarily evil - of its nature it opposes God and creation - so totalitarian tyranny always ought to be opposed.
But opposed in the name of what?
That makes a big difference.
If totalitarian evil is opposed in the name of freedom, that is only to oppose the greater by the lesser evil.
It is - in fact - to oppose an extreme version of the leftist ideology with a more moderate leftism.
Therefore... a 2022 protest or movement based on freedom merely aims to return to the world to what it was a few years ago...
Yet that world of a few years ago was already the most evil society in human history.
Modern Leftism is an ideology of opposition - it is self-identified only by what it opposes - and these 'isms' are many and contradictory.
Therefore Leftism cannot be fought by adding further negative values - such as freedom. These will, indeed, only serve to reinforce Left ideology as the only available option.
Ideology is the perspective that the this-worldly, the material - are the only truths and the the ultimate values.
When ideology is pitted against ideology - then ideology is always the winner - and all ideology is of-the-Left.
Ideology cannot be opposed by ideology but only by religion. The negative and opposition can only be defeated by the positive and transcendental.
Negative protest is of value Only when it is the first-step towards awakening a positive and motivating religious, specifically Christian, world view among individual persons.
Otherwise - as with the Tea Party, Brexit, Trump, and current freedom protests - there will be no lasting and positive social transformation: no reversal of the many decades-long adverse trends in The West.
So, while I naturally prefer the lesser evil to the greater; I would only actively-support an explicitly* religious and Christian movement - that is, one whose value-basis was explicitly divine, and whose stated aims were directed beyond this-mortal-world.
*A movement's goals must nowadays be explicit and upfront if they are to be Good; since all inexplicit goals must be assumed evil as of 2022. Where evil is pervasive, incentivized and mandatory; whatever is unconscious, passive and spontaneous will be assimilated to evil.
