5 Goals of Protest

“If we consider the ethical issues that have given rise to the forms of civil disobedience…we find that the specific goals of protest are few in number. It is true that in most of these forms of disobedience the protection of human dignity and the promotion of self-determination are involved, but the social and per­sonal values may be reduced to five, namely, equality, due process, the rejection of certain types of violence authorized by the state, the protection of private morality, and certain eccentric religious sensitivities.” — JLA, Civil Disobedience
