Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem

Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem clearly tries to show us that obedience which in our current societal set-up is regarded as a moral thing, is disputed and disapproved by Erich Fromm. He poses comparisons with what the first human beings in the bible capitalize book titles did when they were in the Garden of Eden. Disobedience here is shown to oppose what is put as law or even an order. If one is to oppose an order he/she is seen as an outcast or even disloyal. But as Fromm has depicted, disobedience sometime is prerequisite when the stipulated laws or directives are discriminative or unlawful. He then again continues to say that disobedience brings about freedom and an origin of history, since when one disobeys he is set free from a given lineage of orders and laws.
