Depending on what law they broke and how strict the law was should depend on the price that person should pay.
It depends on the level of the law. If the law is a strict law then maybe the person will be in burden that they cant fix. If it is an easy going law, then someone may have the chance to get lucky and pass. But in general no one should break a law as they are " Laws " for a reason.
Its what that person have done that must break that law.
how bad the law is how the restricting the law is.
I agree that a person who ever broke the law should follow the consiquinced. I also agree that if the law is more restricted then you should get more punishments them some laws that are not as restricted which you can get less punishments. On my blog I said that if you think the law is not right and you are getting a punishment for doing the right thing. Then I think you should get up to five moths for breaking a law. Can you add more senatences to your blog? How would people be punished for it?
I somewhat agree Laird but I also disagree. Because if you break a law and believe that the crime you commited is just, but only should serve a short sentence up to five months then most criminals would not serve the sentence they deserve. A lot of murderers believe the person they kill is just and if they serve up to only five months then who is to stop them from killing another person when they are released from jail if the sentence is so minor. Besides people who break the law know that they are breaking the law so they should be willing to serve the sentence because they know better. That is where we agree . But if people want a change in a laws then they should protest. Until there is change they should follow the law.
yes I know what u mean because if they know it was a low and they black it then they most know we they getting in to
whichever law they broke and how much restriction they put on the law should be viewed on a tax that a person must pay.
* I feel that you could have used a bit more detail and understanding.
* I feel like you get some content of what the question ask, but it could use more flavor.
* I agree to a point, but i feel you need a bit more understanding
* I disagree to a point, because its a person choice to break the law or follow it. Depends on the path they are put down or chose.
* What does the word " law " mean to you?
* What goes through a person mind to make them want to break a law?
Well if it is unjust law properly they should pay to go to jail for about 5 months because even though you know you where doing something in a right way. The people who made the law may not know there doing the wrong thing. Its still a law which most times people do go to jail for about a year or more for breaking that law but if you think its a good enough excused to tell the judge that law is considered to be wrong and the right way is this then you should get less of jail time. Considering you broke a law and for having a great enough excused. Could help change a law to make it right. Because in order to change the world from a better place. It has to started with one person. That person can change people perspective on what they see in the world they are living in.
They should fight the law or back down.
We should fight the law if it is unjust. If the challenge is to great then maybe they should consider backing down.
if you break the law then you become a hero to your town and will be supported and fought against
What do you think the proper place is to back down?
How much effort is too much effort when fighting a unjust law?
unjust law should be dealt immediatly. It might come to a point to where it might become too mcuh which means you might have to calm down.
i said this cause the law they break should cone with a consequences.
where the rest of the question?
Do you understand the concept of this question?
The person breaking an unjust law should be willing to pay the price for the law they are breaking. it is up to the people weather they save them or not. Breaking said law is an act of heroism. the people should be willing to help the hero. there are circumstances where the hero must die for the thickening of the plot. People see an unjust death and revolt against the rulers.
I feel that you and me believe that there is a price people have to pay when they break a unjust law. I think that people should have to be rebel unless it is a law that will affect the country, You and me relate on how people should have to revolt when the time is right. If me and you should start a revolution, you would be a great leader.
2 questions I have on your blog is How breaking the law is an act of heroism?, and Do you starting a revolution would be successful if there was no violence during the revolution?
They should be willing to pay the whatever punishment they get because most unjust laws are minor but enforced in a unfair way. But in my personal opinion if you know that you are doing something illegal and you get in trouble for it's your fault and you can't feel sympathy for someone purposely breaking the law. People should obey the law until they reform the law. For example Marijuana is illegal in Georgia and having possession of that drug isn't a big deal but people spend decades in jail just for possession. I don't personally believe that anyone should go to jail for an unjust law like marijuana possession;but if you know it's illegal and you have the drug knowing it is illegal then if you go to jail then you can't be in shock for being in jail. A sentence can lead to the death penalty
and justice is not guaranteed so if you break an unjust law whatever happens is your fault.
The price that a person be willing to pay if he/she breaks an unjust law is imprisonment,death, and their lives. They would risk imprisonment because they believe prison is better than living with injustice.They would also risk their lives because they need a way to get injustice out the country/world. They would risk death because they want to change the world's injustice problem.
In most revolutions,people risked their lives for change in the country. For example a revolution and is happening today is Black Lives Matter. They want freedom and justice for all black people. They are also risking their lives for this.
The price that a person has to pay for breaking an unjustly law depends on which perspective you look at the situation from. When I think about this question, the first thing that comes to my mind is Rosa Parks and the bus boycott. She was arrested and punished for the crime that she committed, in the government's eyes. But in the eyes of the people she was arrested for standing up for what was right. So with being said,I think the price that someone pays for breaking and unjust law is standing up for whats right to have a brighter future.
Well you just made me look at this whole thing in a different point.
I totally agree with what you said, it makes so much sense.
But in my response i talked about they should be ready to get the consequence no matter what. But you made me realize that you should have a purpose for doing it.
I want to ask you a few questions:
Do you think everyone should pay for a unjust law?
Why do you think people should pay for breaking the unjustly law?
I agree with the student i totally agree. Why? Because the Rosa Park situation was a good example of it what the question was asking. And going back to my blog I say me and the student had the same idea. It depends on the situation of what happens.Do you feel like even if the person did something wrong but it was right would you punished them? And if you was ever in that situation what would you do personally?
Well i think it should depend on the law. Like if its a really matters about how big of a deal it is. if its a big deal then they should make the consequence a big deal. But if they are breaking the unjust law they should be willing to pay for what they did. Anyone should pay for something they did. If they didn't then anyone would do it. So if they break the unjust law they need to be willing to get whats coming to them no matter what.
I agree with your opinion a lot . Mainly on the comment about it depending on the situation and how big it is , I feel the same way. Our comments relate to each other in many ways and one of them are alike because we both think that the person should be able to take the challenge and/or consequence. You stated that “if they are breaking the unjust law they should be willing to pay for what they did”. Which sounds like mine where I said that “ if you are brave enough to break an unjust law then you are brave enough to face a consequence.” With that being said , if you were in someone’s shoes breaking an unjust law but it was for your rights do you think you’d deserve a bad consequence ? If so or if not what should it be ? Also if you were to break an unjust law what is the furthest you’ll go to breaking it ?
i agree with you on that. i like how make a big point of the whole thing. what i said is if that person think or know that law is wrong they should do or think they do right. and i also said it should depend on what the law is to make them get a consequence. would that person be doing something right or something wrong?
would they get less punishment or more punishment for breaking an unjust law?
The law that is broken is what makes up the consequence for the person. A person that broke that law should be prepared to pay the consequence. If they weren't ready to pay the consequence then they didn't think through of there action. If you knew what you were doing then why do it. If your going to break an unjust law be ready to get whats coming for you because nobody might not be there for you. People will have different opinions like Haemon and Creon.
I completely agree with you, when you said "if you knew what you were doing then why do it". i agree why do something bad if your not going to be ready to pay for your actions.
They should face the consequences of the punishment cause the fact that most unjust laws are sometime a little offenes but handled in a bad matter. In my eyes yo should know what you doing is wrong nd illegal it's going your faultt for miraculously breaking the law. People should obey any law until they the law is reform. People know not to do unperscrhibed drugs and they will still do it nd spend jail time for years.to me anyone shouldnt go to jail for an unjust law like unprescribed drugs but you must know it's wrong .
some spend life in jail
I think the person who broke the unjust law i think they should pay what they owe. If u know it was against the law and braking the law. Even if the law is a unjust law you still knew it was wrong to do and you knew you were gonna have to pay the price.
I agree with what you said. i think that your right when you said that if they knew it was wrong and they still have to pay the price. People should know what the consequences are going to be before they do it. I said that why break the law its the same thing your saying in your last sentence. I also said that they should be prepared to pay the consequence. Its also what u said in your last sentence that they have to pay the price. Would they have to pay the price fighting for something thats right? What would that person have to do to be right?
I feel that if you are brave enough to break an unjust law then they are brave enough to face a consequence so with that being said they deserve it because they can handle it. I also believe that if there's a consequence given then it should depend on how serious the law is. If it is serious then action should be taken.
If you're fighting for something as important as rights then you're doing the right thing . Getting punished for it will do nothing but teach you the rights and wrongs. They should continue what they believe in and get their voice out even though the consequences are rough. It could have a huge effect on the unjust law.
the price for standing up for what is right can be the ultimate price never stand up unless your ready to fall it is sad but true when people are ready to die for the right thing and if you arn't ready to die your not ready to fight for what you feel is true so you must be ready for the ultimate sacrifice.
i feel that if a person breaks an unjust law, they should be prepared for anything because you are bold enough to break a law so you are strong enough to handle the consequences,this is when you do something bad always expect consequences,like when a person commits a crime they have to deal with going to jail as there consequence.
What price should a person be willing to pay if he/she breaks an unjust law? Honestly I feel like if there was a bad reason for breaking the unjust law they should suffer the consequences to whatever it involved the broken law. But if it was something that was done for a reasonable reason there shouldn't be no price to pay at all. Why, because sometimes it takes for something that's very wrong is the only right in the moment. Like for example with the whole Antigone situation she was in the right no matter how someone see it. She feel like if she didn't bury her brother the proper way then it would be worse on her end than Crone. So she still did what was best was for her brother without worrying about the consequences. Also sometimes breaking the unjust law can led to something good you may never know.
hey Shy'nia,i totally agree with what you said about how there should be no consequences if the law that was broken is unjustly. i said the same thing in mine except i said that if there are any consequences to pay , it'll be for a good cause because even though a law has been broken, the victim has still stood up for whats right.
do you think there is any justice being served if the person has to serve some sort of consequences
do you think we still have any unjustly laws
If it was bad like in there for life I will say kill me. because being in there for life is not good. I will not won't to stall in there for life. If u got life then u dont have a life on more. Your life is gone u don't have a life. So take my life of me. That is how I feel about life in person.
i think it all depends on what kind of law that person breaks or how strongly a law is enforced. lets say a person was caught stealing but it wasn't heavily enforced then. it should be less harsh then lets say killing someone.maybe even if there was a good reason for breaking the law then that person should be given a pardoned.
Well i all depends on what that person had break. but if the law that you think is wrong like if you heard from the law that all girls are not allow to go to school that you have to do what think is right no matter what the law says. if that person did a bad thing it what ever that person did that had break that law they broke. to you if the law think the law is wrong you do what ever it take to make you think its right not what it is wrong. it all depend what depend if that person deserve it or not if it a bad thing or not. if that person willing to sacrifice to do what right or what wrong.
it all depends on what law they broke and how strict they is about that law , but if the law that serious then it would be a lot.
I think the price some people has to take should be on the same level of what they did to be in that situation . So if it was a like a horrible thing they did. That broke the law they should get the same repercussions . If u do something bad or not even bad but just against everything your suppose to do u should be responsible for the consequences. There should be no such thing of doing something bad but getting a good consequence.
