The creation of countries, end of segregation, women's suffrage, etc. can be credited to disobedience. America was created because we disobeyed England; we thought that taxation without representation was unfair. Our motive was freedom and justice; the outcome was American people with more rights. In the 50s and 60s, people of color and allies protested segregation with “sit ins”. They disobeyed the laws of segregation and sat in restaurants or other locations designated for white people.

There were also protests against Condoleezza Rice speaking at Rutgers University because students disagreed with her views. Cutterham also uses the example of O’Neil’s Spectator article. He states that universities should share the goal of protestors: to create an environment where no one feels threatened or belittled.

“If I tried to get away with it,” said George,”then other people’d get away with and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else.

Voltaire understood that a country that is diversified gains more than a country that is isolated and that does not accept differentiation. As a result, Voltaire 's ideas impacted our society today in the United States because the United States constitution allows freedom of speech. While many people to this day are still not tolerant of the other views that people have, a change can be made by teaching others that tolerance allows a person to grow and ultimately strengthens society. The exposure of other cultures also helped the United States to be a more tolerant country. This ideal society is also possible in other countries that do not have as much freedom legally as well by having leaders of countries that have freedom speak with the leaders of countries that do not have as much freedom, since exposure to foreign cultures increases the possibility of tolerance.

John F. Kennedy once said that "it ought to to be possible... for every American to enjoy the privileges of being American without regard to his race or his color." The Civil Rights Movement, which began when the infamous Rosa Parks was harassed by the police when she refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger, was just one campaign that fought to bring Kennedy 's views to life. The Supreme Court also had a hand in the equalization of the races in America, but it was not always positive. The Supreme Court has influenced the views of civil rights advocates throughout the years: Dred Scott vs. Sanford, Plessy vs. Ferguson, and Loving vs. Virginia. To start off, Dred Scott and his wife lived in Wisconsin with their owner, Dr. John Emerson.
This laziness to deal with others lead to the government to destroy the ideas of different thinkers than what is considered normal to them.

Articles such this one that tell horrible myths about GMOs has resulted in people to fear genetically modified organisms without genuinely understanding what the are.

That protest gained worldwide attention and it made its mark by telling the world that equality is for everyone. The city officials could not pretend that the Civil Rights Movement isn’t a big deal (Gilmore). The U.S. Department of Justice had to step in and help end the protest on May 10. The SCLC and the local government reached a deal where the city would desegregate and release the children from jail, only if the SCLC would stop the protests and boycotts (Children’s Crusade). The whole protest was a turning point in favor of the Civi Rights Movement (Gilmore), and it inspired the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom campaign and the Civil Rights act of 1964 (Children’s Crusade).
