Consider the actions of the Sgt. in The Rising of the Moon and of Antigone in Sophocles’ play.Do you think these characters’ actions are justified?Is violation of the law ever justified?Under what circumstances is an individual justified in resisting social order through civil disobedience? (Keep in mind during your discussion that “civil disobedience” typically refers to non-violent action.)As you discuss these works, remember their historical contexts: Thebes is neither a democratic republic in our tradition or a theocracy; the English government the Irish Sergeant works for is considered by many of the Irish people as an oppressive occupying force.Given these contexts:Would a police officer’s actions be justified if he were a Frenchman working for the Nazi government that had occupied France in WWII. If he were required to capture a member of the French Resistance secretly fighting against the Nazis, would he be justified in letting the man go? How is this hypothetical situation similar to and different from the Sergeant’s situation in the play?Likewise, would a mother who, based on her religious beliefs that reject medical care in favor of prayer, refused to seek medical care for her diabetic child be justified in her actions? What if she defied a court order to prevent her daughter from receiving a doctor’s care? What if the girl died? How is this hypothetical situation similar to and different from Antigone’s situation in the play?
