    Civil Disobedience, or peaceful resistance to unfair laws, positively impacts and is necessary in a free society. For an example, we need look only at the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s led by Martin Luther King Jr. The Jim Crow Laws that ravaged the South at the time were incredibly unfair towards blacks, and as such, protests were necessary.

One of…
