Abstract:

What are our responsibilities in the face of injustice? As Candice Delmas argues, we have a duty to resist injustice, which is more important, sometimes, than our duty to obey the law. Drawing from the tradition of activists including Thoreau, Gandhi, and the Movement for Black Lives, Delmas conceptualizes and defends uncivil disobedience and explores its practices and limits. Delmas turns the traditional arguments for civil disobedience on their head, and lays out a clear argument for the duty to go beyond that to resist injustice, even by uncivil means, when necessary.
