Rather than a man because in this society they are taught to be macho, and not show that they have feelings, or that anything bothers them. Although I do not agree with this we can see now that our society is changing and evolving and even philosophers have now begun to realize that justice now has a caring aspect to it. I completely agree with this reasoning and Annette C. Baier brings discusses many philosophers to prove her point.

Civil disobedience is the deliberate action against an unjust law to invoke a positive change in government and society. Civilians have the right to refute these types of unjust laws to eliminate inequality and government’s unjust nature by following conscience before laws for moral guidance.

In Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau, a naturalist, promotes this concept as well through his philosophical standpoint of the flaws of the government.
