Martin Luther King Jr.

- I disagree with Martin Luther King Jr. when he says in his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” “… Socrates practiced civil disobedience.” I will use background information to set the stage, definitions of terms, and evidence drawn from King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, Plato’s “Apology”, and Plato’s “Crito” to show that, while Socrates’ actions were similar to and may have inspired civil disobedience, he did not actually practice it. Socrates was born around 470 BCE in Athens, Greece. He was a soldier in his early life and then devoted himself to the search of truth....   [tags: Civil disobedience, Nonviolence]
