|Morozov I 204
Civil disobedience/Dworkin/Morozov: Ronald Dworkin (...) has argued that the right (to civil disobedience) stems from all the other rights we have to challenge the government. So if a law violates a law that is important for our dignity or another personal value (...), such as freedom of expression, we have the right to disregard it. The considerations of benefit are irrelevant here; the expected uselessness of our protest does not deprive us of this right. (1)
Morozov: other authors have also addressed this topic. (2)
Morozov: it is a question of whether our smart digital environment makes such forms of protest easier or more difficult.
