That is Walter Williams’ argument in this column. Civil disobedience is merited for laws that unconstitutionally restrict freedom. That was the case with regard to the Fugitive Slave Act in the 1850s (which state officials in Wisconsin openly defied and refused to cooperate when ordered by the Supreme Court to enforce it, a point Tom Woods makes in his book Nullification) and will also apply with regard to Obamacare if it is upheld by the Court.
