Both men were pro civil disobedience, However the two had different ways of showing civil disobedience. For example on page 395, in the first paragraph which explained that even when peaceful revolution it used a problem will always be encounter. Gandhi protested tax on salt by marching as seen in paragraph 3 and Thoreau protested tax on the voting poll according to page 395 paragraph two. Another difference between the two is that gandhi hurt people around him because he persuaded people to strike with him, according to paragraph four in the last sentence. Thoreau stood only for his beliefs, so once he ran into the law it was on him.
For example, When Michael Brown was killed there was a several marches around the country they all got national attention. In Martin Luther King’s speech he argues that people should stick to using non-violence instead of using violence to solving your problems: “So in the days ahead let us not sink into the quicksands of violence; rather let us stand on the high ground of love and non-injury.” The idea that we should use non-violence instead of using violence is better because if you start to use violence people are going to say they want change but they are harming our city 's, we cannot advocate violence because we want change to happen and we don 't want more people getting hurt. Indeed we should use non-violence because we will get national attention. Ultimately non-violence protests are better than violent protests because if we want to change something from happening we have to be civilized americans and not make things
King does not believe in using violence to fight violence and uses ethos to appeal to the audience: "Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly" (King 65). This is similar to the saying that two wrongs don 't make a right. King is acknowledging that being violent to respond to violence is only going to cause more chaos which in terms is not right; he is thinking about consequence. Malcolm X 's speech is fueled with anger and rage. He cautiously avoids directly encouraging his audience to be violent but makes statements like: "I don '
Martin Luther King’s philosophy made more sense for America in the 1960s because it pushed America forward, it stopped bloodshed through nonviolence, and it helped make everyone more equal and together by showing them the errors of their ways. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X seemed to have a respect among one another, though their philosophies were quite different from each other. Malcolm X made it clear that he believed that the African Americans and the White people should remain separate but should be considered equal to each other. He told white people “work in conjunction with us-each of us working among our own kind.” Martin Luther King Jr., on the other hand, preached equality and desegregation.
While MLK and the SCLC focused on nonviolent demonstrations to gain support and advocate for civil rights, the NOI worked to create isolated communities and institutions for African Americans with a more liberal use of violence. The key to the SCLC’s demonstrations is the nonviolent method. In his book, MLK stressed the importance of having no violence no matter the result or consequences. In explaining this approach, he claimed that “[The African American man] was unarmed, unorganized, untrained, disunited and, most importantly, psychologically and morally unprepared for the deliberate spilling of blood” (30). As a result, the SCLC trained its volunteer demonstrators to not retaliate in any case of abuse against them and accept arrests in order to gain support and attention.
We should protect everything that people say because it's their right to say what they believe and if we take that away we are no different from North Korea or Cuba. Depriving people of what they can or can't say takes away the whole ideology this country was born of people started a revolution for what they believed so we shouldn't take it away. The only time that we should stop protecting people of what they believe is when there is a violent outbreak like the attack in Charlottesville. James Alex Fields, Jr is a prime example of what free speech isn't because speech is not going out in your car and ramming it into a group of people this when the government should step in because that is no longer speech in a peaceful way you are harming people for stating there own opinion(Pearce). Some people try to take justice into their own hands like Based Stickman AKA Kyle Chapman who went to a Trump rally and starting assaulting people with a flagpole and he was then taken to jail on suspicion of a felony with a deadly weapon(Chang).
when we examine these facts a little closer we can see that these facts show a broken system leading to a death verdict determined by a group of people given a short one-sided story. We can begin by looking at the argument of the deterrent factor this is one of the biggest and most popular reason many people claim reason to uphold the death
In the book To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee used conflict, character, and motif to convey the theme of people often defend their family’s honor, through violence. Scout learns that we don’t always have to use violence to fight for your family. Yes, we sometimes get tired and we lose control of ourselves, but let’s use our heads instead of our
“I support the death penalty because I believe, if administered swiftly and justly, capital punishment is a deterrent against future violence and will save other innocent lives" (Bush). George W. Bush is trying to emphasize the importance of the Death Penalty because it contributes to many factors in society. The Death Penalty is an action that is taken upon by the Government, which legally terminates the life of a convict due to his heinous crimes. There are many groups and individuals who have different views on the Death Penalty, although, it creates a huge impact towards the ones affected by the case. Those individuals who are against the punishment don’t realize how crucial the crimes that convicts commit and the amount of damage they have caused.
Although this punishment still exists, some people seem to agree and some people seem to disagree with the use of it. Some people might believe in revenge and that is also why some people might believe in the death penalty. Especially if murder was the crime that was committed; the loved ones of that family might be for it because they are so mad and devastated about the crime that was committed. This reasoning can also relate to the saying, “an eye for an eye”. It is also said that capital punishment is mentioned in the Bible; “it clearly calls for capital punishment in the case of intentional murder” (religion.blogs.cnn.com).
Martin Luther King Martin Luther King harped on civil disobedience for any moral arguments. Treating citizens differently based on skin color was nefarious, King wished to speak out to change but insisted on non-violent acts to do so. He expressed his thoughts in the “I Have a Dream” speech publically in a passive fashion. This passionate, positive and encouraging speech flourished King’s views and changed the American government’s unjust laws.
Civil disobedience is defined as the refusal to comply with certain laws or to pay taxes and fines, as a peaceful form of political protest. Antigone, written by the playwright Sophocles, depicts an act of civil disobedience when Antigone goes against what the King of Thebes; Creon, said because she believes that the action she will undergo is more important than the law. A similar action is carried out in “ Letter From A Birmingham Jail”, written by Martin Luther King Jr. Each of these pieces are prime examples of civil disobedience because they are both peaceful protest against the law.
“For those who understand witchcraft, these people are merciless that they are out to kill innocent people. We deserve the government t protection but it has turned out that our government defends such serious crimes in the society. We still want the two ladies to be paraded publically and taught a lesson,” he added. However, area OCPD Benjamin Kimwele defended the police saying they acted to ‘protect’ the rule of law as outlined in the constitution.
He wanted to remove the symbol associated with violent acts. With this said, Obama’s main purpose of giving this eulogy was to pay tribute to the victims, make a call to action for continued racial progress, and unite a community after a hate crime. President Obama
Peaceful resistance to laws has a positive impact on a free society. This allows the people of the community to have a say so in which the society is ran. Some people say peaceful resistance is to keep the government in check. Civil disobedience can change the society and raise awareness to disparities. Peaceful resistance is very productive to uphold a free society.
