Is it acceptable to use civil disobedience to protest against the law? Do we have a moral right, and sometimes a moral duty, to engage in civil disobedience? Should we be punished when we do so? In this lecture, Kimberley Brownlee discussed the merits of this practice made famous by Thoreau, Gandhi, King, and Aung San Suu Kyi.
