What makes one person want to harm another? One reason a person may want to harm another is to get revenge.

He does this by using a somber tone about the life of McMillian, as well as using a hopeful one when
Civil disobedience makes a statement. It is a tool that can be used to make a difference. Peaceful resistance to unjust laws helps a free society by allowing people to be heard without violence.

It would be unheard of to even write an essay on such a controversial topic without someone first fighting for the right to speak one’s mind. Peaceful resistance has many accounts of having a positive effect on society.
