A Touch of Civil Disobedience

Given the present presence of “protest” that seems to be engrained in the global mindset – Arab Spring, Anti-Wall Street Rallies in the U.S. to name a few – I think it would behoove me to put up a few words on “Civil Disobedience” for this week’s quotes for thought…

“Laws control the lesser man.  Right conduct controls the greater one.”
~Chinese Proverb

“You’re not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality.  Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it.”
~Malcolm X

“Disobedience, the rarest and most courageous of the virtues, is seldom distinguished from neglect, the laziest and commonest of the vices.”
~George Bernard Shaw, Maxims for Revolutionists
