HUM105 Great Ideas of World Civilizations
Discussion Forum 5
When is rebellion necessary?
Here is our 5th Weekly Discussion Forum.
Do the assigned reading  M. L. King, Ursula Le Guin) and, this week, watch the short videos I’ve posted links here and in the Materials for the Four Units in Unit 2: “Stanley Milgram’s ‘Perils of Obedience'”, and the “Solomon Asch Experiment on Conformity” As you’re doing the reading and watching the videos, please think about the question below. Then, sometime between now and next Thursday, March 7th, 11:59 pm, post your first response, including a quotation from the readings and a reference to something in at least one of the videos. Finally, by next Sunday, March 10th, at 11:59 p.m., post at least one response to a classmate. As before, make sure you do at least one of the following for each of your two posts:
Be the first to post an answer to the question. (You get extra credit if you do!)
Agree, but then add to what someone else has already said.
Disagree with something already said, but explain why you disagree.
Add a new element or new idea to the discussion.
Again, do not just agree, disagree, go off on an unrelated tangent, or base your argument on “It’s just my opinion”. Give reasons.
Here’s this week’s question:
   Most of the time, we agree that obeying the law in general is right and moral, and disobeying the law is wrong. But sometimes, things can get complicated, and we can find ourselves objecting morally to a particular law or a particular legal authority.  At what point do our objections rise to the level at which we have a right, even a moral obligation, to refuse to obey?  How do you know when it is morally acceptable or even necessary to rebel against legally designated authority?
As in the past, make sure you post at least twice – the first by Thursday night and the second by Sunday night.
