Comment: I advocate breaking laws that violate our natural rights...

(See in situ)

I advocate breaking laws that violate our natural rights...

But I don't advocate getting yourself arrested by doing it in front of those that would deprive you of your rights.

What good are your second amendment rights, if you purposely get yourself arrested and have your weapons confiscated from you, your liberty taken from you and your ability to purchase firearms taken from you.

Here's another example: I think its righteous and commendable for people to avoid paying taxes, but I wouldn't tell someone to march into an IRS office and admit to it.

Would Adam be righteous in doing this?

Yes, he most definitely would.

Would he be wise do this?

Probably not.

Getting yourself arrested is not going to make you any more free.

I respect the hell out of Adam, and I would applaud him for doing this, but I don't think this is going to turn out well for him or anyone involved if he goes through with it.

Pick your battles, this isn't the hill to die on.

Timing is important in activism, and I don't think that this is the right time for this, we need to educate more people first.

I know we can all be impatient, but don't get ahead of yourselves.

In order for mass civil disobedience to be effective we first have to achieve critical mass, we aren't there yet, but we are getting there.
