Read full description of the books Disobedience and Democracy: Nine Fallacies on Law and Order:So basically, back in the 60's, an associate Justice of the Supreme Court wrote a pamphlet about Civil Disobedience in response to all the upheavals of the time. His name was Abe Fortas. His argument was essentially that disobedience was acceptable only if it didn't go directly against the laws of the country.
Another guy named Howard Zinn read it, got really pissed off, and wrote the book I am now reviewing.
It's pretty much 124 pages of Abe Fortas getting bitch slapped.
Zinn, though especially radical at times, does make some very compelling arguments such as: "how many lives does it take until a law becomes unjust," and "disobedience ensures the health of democracy." He's an excellent writer and extremely educated. I may have a slight intellectual crush.
At the end of the day? Zinn gets the big thumbs up from me.
