Throughout They dumped an entire shipment of tea

Throughout history disobedience has
been seen as one of the most valuable traits a human can posse. Disobedience is
the action of wrong doing of a rule or a law. Throughout history, disobedience
can be seen as a valuable human trait. Though it can be seen that sometimes
disobedience is not an valuable human trait, disobedience if used intelligently
can be used for social progress as seen through the American Revolution, the
civil rights movement, Civil War, and through social norms.

Disobedience is valuable human
trait as demonstrated in the history of the American Revolution. The American
Revolution was the process in which America separated from Britain and declared
independence. The American Revolution would have likely never happened if the
citizens did not demonstrate their valuable human trait of disobedience through
protests against Britain. For example, their Boston Tea Party protest.  The Boston Tea Party was an act of rebellion
by the Sons of Liberty. They dumped an entire shipment of tea into the Boston
Harbor to protest the Tea Act of 1773. This action of disobedience helped lead
to the Intolerable Acts, the Revolutionary War and the overall independence
from Great Britain. Thus without the Sons of Liberty rebelling against the new British
law act, the Americans would have just continued on following Britain laws.
Until they had enough and tried to rebel again. Only through disobedience will
social progress be made. Another example of disobedience effecting social
progress is the civil rights movement.

Disobedience is a valuable human
trait as demonstrated in the Civil Rights movement. The Civil Rights movement
was the process in which to seek social justice for African Americans by giving
them equal rights. The Civil Rights Movement would have likely never happened
if the citizens did not demonstrate their valuable human trait of disobedience through
protests against whites. For example, Rosa Parks protest against racial segregation
laws. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat in the colored section of the bus
to a white man. When she was told again to 
move she refused and had to be removed from the bus by police. This act
of rebellion/disobedience lead to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, sit ins and other
forms of protests. Thus encouraging other African Americans to rebel from
racial segregation laws, thus starting the Civil Right movement. If Rosa Parks
did not disobey the racial segregation laws then likely no social progress
would have been made. However, Rosa Parks did not give up her seat, she
demonstrated that valuable human trait, disobedience. Therefore, social
progress was made and the Civil Rights Movement did occur. Another example of
how disobedience is truly a valuable human trait that effects social norms is
the Civil War.

Disobedience is a valuable human
trait as demonstrated in the history of the Civil War. The Civil War was the
process in which the confederate states fought for slavery and the Union states
fought to end slavery. The Union won thus ending slavery. The Civil war would
have likely never happened if the citizens did not demonstrate their valuable
human trait of disobedience through protests against the southern states. For
example, Harriet Tubman’s disobedience towards the southern states laws was what
founded the Underground Railroad. The Underground Railroad was an act of
protest against the Southern States slavery laws. However, Harriet Tubman was
not the only person working the Underground Railroad. Both people of North and
South helped transport slaves from the South to the North. Through these brave American’s
actions of disobedience, 1,000s of enslaved African American lives were saved.
It was only through the act of disobedience that saved those African Americans
and helped lead to the Civil War and overall ending slavery. Thus disobedience
will create social progress to be made. Another example of disobedience
effecting social progress is a personal experience about social norms.

 

 

Disobedience is a valuable human
trait as demonstrated in protesting social norms. There are two types of
disobedience, disobeying rules or laws and disobeying what is told. This
example of disobedience is about social norms. I have a friend named Briana and
she loved sports, especially football. However, around that time girls were
never thought to compete in football due to it being titled a male sport.
Briana eventually rebelled against the social norm of only males competing in
football by joining the football team. It was only through her human trait of
disobedience that got her to join the football team and break her town’s social
norm. Even though Briana did not rebel against a rule or law, she was able to
spark social progress throughout her community. By refusing to conform to her
town’s social norms.

All these examples at one point in
time followed the existing laws and no progress of what they felt was right occurred.
However, when they rebelled through disobedience they were able to follow their
beliefs thus initiating social progress to what they believed to be the greater
good.
