    Dr. King and the civil rights movement got civil disobedience exactly right IMO. Sitting at the "whites only" section and basically saying "We're people, we're here, and we're ready to do business" was very powerful. Rosa Parks had it right when she refused to move, hey she worked as hard as the person who got there after her, she deserved her seat.

    These are good examples.

    As long as it's actually civil and doesn't trample on the rights of others. The so called civil disobedience at Kent State involved burning down private property. The so called civil disobedience in NYC is killing profits for privately owned businesses in the area where the protests are taking place.

    One thing I've never understood is the boycott, if a company doesn't want to do business with a certain group and they turn around and say they aren't going to do business with the company then don't we come full circle?

    That's right, if someone misses work, he doesn't get paid, he might even get fired. That's definitely doing harm.

    If a small business loses profits and can't meet the rent, or the light bill, it might have to close down. The average small business is two weeks away from bankruptcy, so every day with no profit, puts that business one day closer to going belly up.

    The issue I have with boycotts, is how do you justify outting people people out of work, if you manage to force that business to close it's doors? At the end of the day, what's been accomplished? Working class folks are out of a job and the business operator cut his losses, took the money and ran.

    They hate capitalism. They have the fullbore support of the Communist and Nazi Parties.

    BTW, welcome back.
