Resist Unjust Authority


Any time someone tells you that even an unfair law needs to be obeyed, ask him if he thinks Schindler was doing the wrong thing

You assist an unjust administration most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil administration never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil.

A good person will resist an evil system with his whole soul.

Disobedience of the laws of an evil state is therefore a duty.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Non-Violent Resistance
