Answer only 3 of these questions and each response should be 3-5 paragraphs. You will find the reading material starting on page 15 under "Week IV, July 25: Law, Ethics, and Civil Disobedience". Please disregard the "further research" section Explain the difference between law and ethics. Give an example of where civil disobedience is legitimate and might not be legitimate, giving reasons for your answers. Describe Thoreau’s concept of civil disobedience and how this 19th century figure was a key influence on later-day forms of civil disobedience. What does Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence require of us -- in everyday life? For it is a way of life, not just a political tactic; what forms of violence can you identify in your life and are you inspired to try to eliminate them. Is life better today in India or the US after the “victories” of Gandhi and King? Why or why not? Watch these two clips of King and Malcolm X and assess the fairness and validity of each argument. What final conclusions do you draw from these two contrasting viewpoints? Malcolm X Critiques Dr. Martin Luther King MLK Responds to Malcolm X’s Critique What is the critique of Denis Ranquort of Dr. King? How would you evaluate it? View this short documentary on the Gulabi Gang in India (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHl_nLDptV8) and critically compare their views and tactics with those advocated by Gandhi and King, on one hand, and Malcolm X on the other. Would the latter two denounce the Gulabi (Pink) Gang as “violent” in some manner and counter to the viewpoint of Satyagraha? Could their tactics legitimately be viewed as “violent”? If so, would they be “wrong”? Or would they be more accurately and fairly framed as something else, such as self-defense? Do they stray from the original teachings Gandhi tried to set, or is pacifism a dogma that needs change in many ways and do they provide a better and more realistic strategy to combat oppression and violence? Conclude with your own general and critical assessment of the philosophy and tactics of the Gulabi Gang. Would you support or even join them (if you lived in India)? Why or why not?
