Fromm--Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem
I've found a full text copy of Fromm's article for Wednesday's reading, so here is the link to "Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem." What do you think of this idea that, according to the mythology of many cultures (keep in mind that by "mythology," Fromm means "a system of beliefs"), the human race began through an act of disobedience? Does this change the way you feel about disobedience vs. obedience? Can you think of any other important historical events that began with acts of disobedience?
