Friendly Noncompliance Wins Against TSA Bodyscan / Groping

20 Feb

Farm Wars tells a successful tale of a courageous individual taking time and risking jail to stand up for his rights–to pass through the airport without being groped or radiated. He calmly and confidently stayed true to his inner feeling of what is right and, after sifting through the officials’ fears that are the root of this loss of freedom, is allowed to pass through unadulterated. I suspect that the individual was especially effective because he did not antagonize the officers, but simply held firmly to the outcome he believed was in his right. If such noncompliance were to catch on, society could quickly rid itself of this bodily assault. I think this is a great example of how calm nonviolent noncompliance can restore our unalienable rights.
