  1. When is Rebellion Justified? Page 66 • Many young people harbor a spirit of rebellion—against parents, teachers, bosses, rules, or any situation that “just isn’t fair!” But how often do you attempt to explain your rebellion logically? In June of 1776, Thomas Jefferson and other colonial leaders had decided to rebel against British rule. But they needed to justify their dangerous action—to themselves, to the king, and to the world. • Think of several situations in which an individual or a group rebelled against a perceived injustice. The situations could be any of the following: • • local—an incident in your school or community, for example • • global—such as demonstrations against global trade policies • • historical—such as the American, French, or Russian revolutions
