Should people actively disobey bad laws?
Depends on the bad law
Responsibly, yes -- and along with that would be bringing awareness to others regarding why the law is unfavorable.
Yes, responsibly, with good conscience, & mindful of the consequences.
If a law is unjust a man is not only right to disobey it, but he is obligated to do so.
if people didn't disobey bad laws we may still have segregated buses, schools, restaurants, etc. its our duty as Americans to disobey bad laws
It depends. I default to no, unless there's a strong over-riding concern. In select cases civil disobedience is justified. It requires judgement and discernment for each case; no blanket policy is going to work.
Definitely not. What's a "bad law"? Rape? Murder? It's too subjective, too many people would get the wrong idea.
Umm, obviously. Ever heard of a guy named Gandhi?
Yes, I have heard of Gandhi.
I think civil disobedience is more subtle generally than active disobedience of laws an individual or even a group judges bad law. Gandhi and others were protesting more than disobeying specific laws.
Not every bad law (I'd be imprisoned 24/7), but the worst of the worst, yes.
Yeah Puppy - you understand that to disobey in protest means you would have to face consequences - something other don't get - others much older than you - I'm so proud!!!!!
Thank you Shelly :)
