When Does Obedience Become Wrong?
The goal of this video is to remind us that what is normal is not always just. Obeying Hitler in WWII would have been obedient but it would have still been wrong. Similarly, there are many acts we engage in (or are engaged in by our government on our behalf) that are also morally wrong. In these times, civil disobedience is the appropriate action.
Matt Damon, a lifelong friend of Howard Zinn and his family, read excerpts from a speech Howard Zinn gave in 1970 as part of a debate on civil disobedience.
