I will let my oppenent choose his/her arguments first. I would like to see why they think that CD is not appropriate.

CD is never appropriate in any form

1. Justice is a mind set, it varies from person to person. Any thing therefore could be considered justice like me assassinating the president, vice president and the secretary of state.

2. CD is not appropriate because it destroys societies rules and laws which are there to govern appropriately. If we break one rule who's to say that we cannot break another.

3. There are alternatives to CD that would get the job done, like writing to YOUR representatives to ask for a change or something of that nature.

Ill get to more in my next post but I kinda want to see how these are returned

Those aren't examples of civil disobedience. We didn't accept consequence for boston tea party or the revolution.

I'm obviously voting for Jokerdude on dropped args.

erm, american revolution ring any bells? boston tea party?

eventually, talk becomes ineffective and action must be taken. it is a necessary evil.

i'll consider debating someone on this issue.
