On Civil Disobedience

A Tool for Change?

OLLI Study Group OLLI Study Group
What is the role of civil disobedience in a democracy? Can non-cooperation be a powerful means of social change? Under what conditions is it acceptable for a
minority to passively resist a law passed by the majority? What is the role of individual conscience when it conflicts with the law? When is breaking the law the right thing to do?

Join us to read classic defenses of civil disobedience by Socrates, Thoreau, Tolstoy, Gandhi, King, and others that will guide our exploration of a citizen’s moral relationship to the law.

Instructors Larry Berlin and John Rowntree will lead this two hour study group for those 50 and above on Tuesdays from September 20 through November 8.
