The website for this community has the words'When injustice becomes law,resistance becomes duty'these are very good words,whose are they?I suppose CRTs response would be 'Resistance is Futile'.

That quote is all over the internet, used as a rallying cry by a multitude of anti-governmental sites of all kinds

 

I cannot find the context in which Jefferson first said it

Also (to me) it seems a slightly bizarre use on the K&A Boating Community website.

 

To me Jefferson was saying it is right to resist laws that are unjust?

 

Surely it is the view of those behind that web-site that the laws that govern CRT actually allow what they want, but that it is CRT's interpretation of the law that needs resisting?

 

It doesn't seem to be the same thing at all to me!

 

Somehow

 

"When the law is interpreted unjustly,resistance becomes duty"

 

doesn't have the same ring, though.

Good, but I would say 'when the law is unjustly interpreted,resistance becomes a duty'.

 

Google says Thomas Jefferson.

 

Not that Jefferson ever had to tackle CRT.....
