I think that peaceful

civil disobedience can be very effective in implementing change; however, for it to have a maximum effect, you need numbers. Just look at the gun issue alone....What if the vast majority of gun owners (potentially millions of people) just decided that rather than come out shooting if gun confiscation were to occur, they just decided to hide their guns and refuse to comply? What would happen to our legal system if all of a sudden they tried to run 20,000,000 people through the system who hid their guns and refused to give them up, and how many juries do you think would be willing to put someone in jail for this reason? It would overload and paralyze the court system. The same would be true of the income tax if you could get millions of people on the same page.

So, yes, civil disobedience could be very, very effective, but you would have to find a way to get a lot of people on the same page at the same time. Possible?....idk?
