He refused to serve in the United States Army during the Vietnam War as a conscientious objector, because “War is against the teachings of the Holy Koran

“Muhammad Ali, Boxing Legend And Anti-War Icon, Dies At 74”. The Huffington Post. N.p., 2016. Web. 13 June 2016.

Gay, Jason. “Muhammad Ali Shook Up the World; the Legendary Boxer Called Himself ‘the Greatest,’ which was both a Garish Boast and the Flat Truth.” Wall Street Journal (Online)Jun 04 2016. ProQuest. Web. 19 June 2016 .
Biography: In the chaos following his first career-making triumph over Sonny Liston in Miami in 1964, Muhammad Ali–still then a 22-year-old from Louisville, Ky., named Cassius Clay–found his way to a microphone and camera in the crowded boxing ring and bellowed five words that announced his loud arrival:
“I shook up the world!”
The final decades of Ali’s life would be less confrontational than the earlier ones. Ali was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1984 at age 42, which would cause tremors in his limbs and eventually still his expressive face. Ali would continue to make public appearances, no longer a whirlwind of contentiousness but a beloved legend, most memorably at the 1996 Olympics, when the 1960 gold medalist appeared at the Opening Ceremony in Atlanta and lit the flame. Though Ali’s voice was diminished, his sense of humor remained intact–there was the hilarious “60 Minutes” episode in which a prankster Ali pretended to fall asleep and throw drowsy punches at correspondent Ed Bradley.

Rule: Kaczynski’s ideas, however, described in a manifesto entitled, “Industrial Society and Its Future,” cannot be dismissed, and are increasingly important as our society hurtles toward individual disempowerment at the hands of technology and political forces that erode autonomy.
Consequence: Kaczynski, while reprehensible for murdering and maiming people, was precisely correct in many of his ideas.
Chase, Alston. “Harvard And The Making Of The Unabomber”. The Atlantic. N.p., 2000. Web. 13 June 2016.
Biography: In the fall of 1958 Theodore Kaczynski, a brilliant but vulnerable boy of sixteen, entered Harvard College. There he encountered a prevailing intellectual atmosphere of anti-technological despair. There, also, he was deceived into subjecting himself to a series of purposely brutalizing psychological experiments
Rule: Ted Kaczynski. According to the conventional wisdom, Kaczynski, a brilliant former professor of mathematics turned Montana hermit and mail bomber, is, simply, mentally ill. He is a paranoid schizophrenic, and there is nothing more about him to interest us. But the conventional wisdom is mistaken.

Ford, Peter. “China Harasses Family of Nobel Peace Laureate Liu Xiaobo.” The Christian Science Monitor: 7. Apr 23 2013. ProQuest. Web. 19 June 2016 .
Biography: Nobel Prize winner Liu Xiaobo’s brother-in-law went on trial for fraud Tuesday, the latest in a string of Chinese dissidents’ relatives to be subjected to official harassment and persecution.
Rule: “Persecuting relatives is part of the arsenal deployed against dissidents, critics and whistleblowers as a matter of routine” in China, says Nicholas Bequelin, a researcher for Human Rights Watch in Hong Kong. “It is very much part of the repertoire of political repression.”
Consequence: Liu himself is currently serving an 11-year jail sentence for inciting subversion after helping organize a pro-democracy campaign called “Charter ’08.” Now his brother-in-law, Liu Hui, faces 14 years imprisonment. The three-hour hearing in a suburban Beijing court ended without a verdict.

Biography: writer Liu Xiaobo was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize
Rule: At its core, Charter 08 asks the Chinese government to honor rights enshrined in the Chinese Constitution. The government has already signed the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and ratified the International Covenant on Economic and Social Rights. In a recent interview with CNN, premier Wen Jiabao acknowledged that “Freedom of speech is indispensable. . . . The people’s wishes for, and needs for, democracy and freedom are irresistible.”
Consequence: Today, more than at any other time in history, the world looks to China as a leader. China has a chance to show that it is a forward-looking nation, as it has been for thousands of years. If it keeps Liu behind bars, the Chinese government is no more progressive than the ever paranoid and closeted Burmese junta, the only other regime with the gall to lock away another recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, Aung San Suu Kyi. Release Liu, and China continues its impressive emergence on the world stage. Beijing helped keep the global economy afloat amid recent crisis; now it can show the world that it has the confidence to face criticism and embrace change.
