Among the most necessary things for the survival of intellectual constructs (such as personal rights, privileges, and information in general) is the notion of Satyagraha, as coined by Gandhi: The notion of Peaceful Non-Compliance to the ******* of your time.
It is truly Compassion manifest.
Civil Disobedience is a Virtue of which you will never hear in our Schools or Churches or on packages at Wal-Mart or from Politicians.
Civil Disobedience is the Voice that cannot be taken until your Death.
Civil Disobedience is the Music and pulse of a truly living Culture.
Civil Disobedience is the respectful denial to conform to the laws imposed and policies enacted by those who are undeserving of such power, or those who abuse the power they so grandiosely wield.
Civil Disobedience is necessary for the survival of a thriving popular Democracy, and thus is punished by the Authoritarians who use Democracy as a veil for Totalitarianism.
Civil Disobedience is the only vote you'll ever be guaranteed in your life. It is Democracy seeking refuge in Vigilantism, It is Anarchy embodying the greater good. It is what must be done in the face of Oppression by Authority.
I most sincerely and personally maintain:
Civil Disobedience is a Virtue, Civil Disobedience is a Need, Civil Disobedience is a Philosophy. Civil Disobedience is Peace and Harmony in the faces of Chaos and Tyranny.
