Essay On Can Citizens Obey Or Disobey Laws

Question

Should there be different moral standards governing ordinary citizens' duty to obey the law/ duty to disobey unjust laws and the duty of those who work for the state in a bureaucratic capacity to carry out or implement the law, their orders, the policies that are set by policymakers?

Note that this question requires a) taking a stand on what citizens' duties are (to obey the law unconditionally?  to disobey unjust laws? when?) and b) taking a stand on whether bureaucratic officials have duties that differ from your answer to (a) (and whether, how, why).  So you could say "Citizens have a duty to disobey unjust laws but bureaucrats have a duty to carry out policies even if they're unjust," or the other way around; and then your thesis would be "different standards."  You should object to that with an argument for "similar standards."  Or you could argue that "everyone has a duty to disobey unjust laws and policies" or "everyone has the duty to obey", and in either case your thesis is "similar standards" and you should object with an argument for "different standards."
 

Summary

The question belongs to Political Science and it is an essay question which discusses about whether or not different moral standards be there for citizens to obey, or disobey various laws and then bureaucratic capacity to implement laws, orders and policies. This has been discussed in the solution in detail.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
