Levison/Eng.  310 ESSAY THREE: CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE  Research and argument essay Readings: 1. James J. Lopach and  Jean A. Luckowski: Uncivil Disobedience: Violating the  Rules for Breaking the Law pp. 251-256 (the blurb and  paragraphs, 1-6) 2. Erich Fromm: Disobedience as a Psychological and  Moral Problem  pp. 245- 250 (the blurb and  paragraphs, 1, 2, 4, 5, 7) 3. At least two articles you find yourself from the databases  or  an article from a  website and  an article from a database. You may need  to keep searching  until   you find enough  articles. Essay Assignment Three  We are always told to obey the law and that disobedience is wrong. However,  there have been examples in history when people disobeyed  the law because  they thought the law was unjust or because they wanted to change society in  some way.  Should people disobey  the law in those situations? Answer this question,  using as an example one  group which recently  did an illegal activity (or one  that people might consider unwelcome) in order to change a situation they felt  was wrong. Your essay must consider both sides. Support  your  point of view using your  own  ideas, those in the assigned  readings,  and  ideas you find in your research. But all facts you use must be documented: the information  for this essay will come only
