    Please take not of the last phrase of my comment..... "...and are willing to incur whatever consequences come from their actions." Those consequences could very well be physical injury, imprisonment, loss of rights, etc... depending on what you are campaigning for, and what methods of civil disobedience you choose to employ.

    Fully agree..
    There are times when civil disobedience is necessary (rights of minorities for one) but not just for the sake of it - without good reason..
    Also, it takes time for man to progress...Potential rioters should know this and be careful, lest they lose support..I think this happened with the Occupy Wall Street Movement......

    These people were able to achieve much , much more than the John Browns of CD (civil disobedience), but I would still support a Brown, I think..
    The problem of today, IMO, is one of a lack of communication, a lack of truth, openness, honesty..and these are extremely difficult to "repair".
