Spike posted a copy of Charlton Heston's Speech to the Harvard
Law School Forum and Pat posted some references to the "Heston
Speech" thread from February that I have not read.

I'll simply point out that there appears to be a contradiction
in Heston's position. On the one hand he seems to be celebrating
disobedience of Dr. King and the Founding Fathers but yet on the
other hand he seems to be critical of corporate interests promoting
the "disobedience" of individuals like "Ice-T". There is a hint
that one must disobey "Peacably, yes. Respectfully, of course
Nonviolently, absolutely." yet in the final analysis Heston seems
clearly in favor of violence where justified to revolt against
the oppressors.
