2nd post of this bc my class requires two diff opinions:

Short Answer:

A lot of us weren't around during the Civil Rights movements of the early 1960's, but all
of us have read accounts and seen videos of people passively protesting what they
considered unjust laws: we know of Rosa Parks' refusal to move to the back of the bus,
sit-ins at white-only establishments, and the civil rights marches. Ethics are created by
moral values. Whether or not to obey the law is itself an ethical question. Some
individuals, such as those mentioned earlier, may choose to ignore the law if their ethical
principles conflict with it.

If there is a conflict between a law and an ethic, should an individual disobey the law, or
should an individual obey the law even if he or she thinks it would be unethical to do so?
Is there a higher law than what society provides in a particular place at a particular time?

Give an example of a recent event in which somebody chose to disobey the law for
his/her ethical principles?
