Definition in my own words:
not wanting to do something that the law requires you to as a peaceful protest. Civil Disobedience Resistance to Civil Government Author: Henry David Thoreau
Title: Resistance to Civil Government
Argument: The main idea of this piece is to stand up for what you believe "I have paid no poll tax for six years. I was pulled into jail once on this account, for one night."
Appeal Types: Thoreau uses logos.
"When I came out of prison-for someone interfered, & paid the tax."
Thoughts on discipline: His thoughts on discipline is that he liked it because he saw it as making a point on not paying his poll tax to make a peaceful protest against the world.
"I felt as if I alone of all my townsmen had paid my tax." On Nonviolent Resistance Author: Mohandas K. Gandhi
Title: On Nonviolent Resistance
Argument: Making a point isn't as easy as it seems, it can result in many different ways.
Appeal Types: The appeals Gandhi uses is logos and pathos.
Logos: "Pride makes a victorious nation bad-tempered."
Pathos: "We alone suffer the consequence of our mistakes."
Thoughts on discipline: Gandhi thinks that they can be thrown into jail and it wouldn't matter because they are still making a point.
"Send us to prison and we will live there as in a paradise." Letter from Birmingham City Jail Author: Martin Luther King Jr.
Title: Letter from Birmingham City Jail
Argument: The main idea MLK is trying to make in "Letter from Birmingham" is the difference between unjust and laws."The answer is found in the fact that there are two types of laws: there are just laws and unjust laws."
Appeal Types: MLK uses logos and pathos. Logos: "Can any laws set up in such a state be considered democratically structured?" Pathos: "One who breaks an unjust law must do it openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept penalty.
Thoughts on discipline: He thinks that the people in jail for protesting and stuff are the ones who should be most respected for what they're trying to prove.
"I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him unjust, and willingly accepts the penalty by staying in jail to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is a reality expressing the very highest respect for law." Earth Evictions, Disaster Relief, and a Whole New World Author: Not mentioned
Title: Earth Evictions, Disaster Relief, and a Whole New World.
Argument: The everyday struggles of moving back and forth to different areas was apparently how things went down in New York after Sandy for the non wealthy who can't fix their homes.
"Life here involves a constant process of navigating between spaces where we organize and build community, and the ongoing displacements, when we are forced to flee from spaces where we have slept and connected, which are apart of life in this neoliberal city."
Appeal: Pathos: "'Kick us out the parks, we'll take the streets,' we chanted through the rally. 'Hey Bloomberg, Beware! Now Liberty Park is everywhere.'" Ethos: "I was excited because the day continues a push back against Wall Street we saw escalated by Occupy."
Thoughts on discipline: They don't really care much for discipline because they will get evicted from a place and move to rally elsewhere.
"And of course, a year ago this week, we were evicted from Zuccotti Park, by NYPD" Definition in my own words: not wanting to do something that the law requires you to as a peaceful protest. Works Cited Page:

Title:Civil Disobedience Rises in New York City, Across the Nation Over Arizona Immigration Law
Appeals: Ethos:"A red double-decker bus packed with tourists came to a stop in front of the Federal Building in Manhattan."
Pathos:"Stretching across Broadway in three neat lines, was a crowd of protesters blocking traffic and singing, "We Shall Overcome."
Thoughts on jail: They decided to protest with holding up signs outside of Dodger Stadium. "'This is not Arizona' read one of the protest placards." Two paragraphs of synthesis: Although some people may believe that Thoreau would think the modern example of civil disobedience would fit his style actually, I believe Thoreau would not be very fond of considering it was a rally of people with signs outside the Dodge stadium. Thoreau believed that he didn't need a crowd to make a point. Rather, he believed he could do it himself in secret.
Although some people may not agree that it's civil disobedience, actually it is because it is a group of people trying to make a point. The group of people may not have used Thoreau's idea of civil disobedience but it still counts. They used a peaceful way to be recognized without anyone getting hurt. So it has an edge of what Thoreau was trying to point out but not entirely.
