Libertarian flavor of civil disobedience

The more I read (and hear) him the more I like him:  Kevin D. Williamson on Bundy’s Libertarian flavor of civil disobedience.  I agree this will likely end badly – prison – for Bundy but I hope it brings attention to the issues.  Williamson does a nice job of briefly summarizing those issues below, but only hints at the corruption worth exploring around the Majority Leader and the solar farm.

(A)n individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.
