When is it ok, if ever, to disobey the law?
When a law is immoral or violates human rights. I understand everyone has their own ideas about what that means.
* We have a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. Any law that uplifts human personality is just. Any law that degrades human personality is unjust.
* When a law is immoral or violates human rights. I understand everyone has their own ideas about what that means.
* When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty
* When You know your right. And your little finger has more Integrity than the Law
* When they criminalise a plant
* I don’t think it’s ever “okay” to disobey a law, but in a society we have a responsibility to ensure that the laws are and remain relevant and fair. How we achieve this depends on the impact of the law and might range from simply ignoring a law that has become meaningless to acts of rebellion against a state that insist on enforcing a law that promotes injustice.
* The abolitionists come to mind
* ………Yall all speed….
* It’s up to good people to break bad laws.
* When the law is unjust or tyrannical
* quod est necessarium est licitum
* When it violates the consent of peaceful people.
