Civil disobedience against caste is not merely a right but a profound duty.
Civil disobedience is urged not to destroy the United States but because the government is now poorly organized to achieve democracy. The aim of such a movement always will be to improve the nature of the government, to urge and counsel resistance to military Jim Crow in the interest of a higher law—the principle of equality and justice upon which real community and security depend.
When he asserts that civil disobedience is a duty, we most certainly understand that he is actually committed to the duty himself. We thus understand that in practice he stands against the claim that there is a binding moral obligation to comply with the law merely because it is law promulgated by the territorial state.
Notice as well the source to which Rustin attributes the duty to disobey caste. One can be said to have a duty to comply with the higher law; and the aspect of the higher law that is relevant is the principle of justice and equality.
Equality is of course the positive state of affairs that Rustin juxtaposes with caste, that is, a hierarchically and horizontally divided society. Caste rends the fabric of community—it obstructs or opposes justice. But to an extent the effect of his conception of equality on his understanding of the role of the state is already on display in the above, where he asserts that the principle of justice and equality is the value that government ought to serve.

And this principle of justice and equality is democracy. But when Rustin invokes the term democracy he is not talking about a form of government. For him, a government is not itself a democracy. Rather it is an entity that ought to cultivate democracy. This might appear an odd formulation, yet it registers an important nuance. It allows Rustin to contend that government should be an instrument for democracy.
Thus government, for Rustin, is an instrumental value and thus subordinate to human needs. Political disobedience, properly understood, is motivated by an interest in serving a higher law and that law is not identical with the positive laws of the territorial state.
This is a commitment that he never abandons. Throughout the s and s he emphasizes the practical indispensability of direct action and political disobedience and stresses the merely instrumental value of government and formal democratic procedure.
