Someone who expects to suffer for his beliefs, and is willing to do so 
is a sincere practitioner of civil disobedience.

Which Bill Ayers, Aaron Schwartz, Thoreau, Ghandi, Greenpeace, and the 
rest, transparently were not.

In practice, 99% of civil disobedience is Pussy Riot tearing down 
someone else's crucifix on someone else's property.  The message is "You 
have to obey our laws, but we do not have to obey even our own laws".
