There is more plausibility in the idea of a multi-dimensional continuum of protest, which recognises the complexities in such critical points of contrast as legality, violence, harm, communication, motivation, and persuasiveness. One is that disobedients deserve the same punishment as the ordinary offenders who breach the same laws. As Raz observes, non-violence avoids the direct harm caused by violence, and non-violence does not encourage violence in other situations where violence would be wrong, something which an otherwise warranted use of violence may. Thus in the 1930s, the Indian campaign of civil disobedience began.

In contrast to deterrence systems, monistic desert systems and communicative systems of punishment would only punish civil disobedients if, and to the extent that, they deserve to be punished. An even broader conception of civil disobedience would draw no clear boundaries between civil disobedience and other forms of protest such as conscientious objection, forcible resistance, and revolutionary action. Briefly, the right to civil disobedience could be grounded on something other than participation rights such as a right to object on the basis of conscience. People may be supposed to have a fundamental right against the government, such as freedom of expression, when that right is important to their dignity, to their standing as persons equally entitled to concern and respect, or to some other personal value of consequence. Whereas civil disobedience has developed as a positive term which many people apply to their own protests, terrorism is an epithet applied only to the actions of others. Some coordination of activities is required, says Rawls, to regulate the overall level of dissent (Rawls 1971, 3745). Thoreau, for his part, spent time in jail for his protest.
