My only problem with this is how you'd go about defining what a "bad law" is.

any law that makes a criminal out of a peaceful person

Pickpocketing, extortion and identidy theft are peaceful acts. Is it wrong to have laws against those?

How about the ban on public smoking?

How about bans on hunting in National Parks?

When did you say anything about people getting non-physically harmed? You just said "peaceable people" and by peaceable I assumed you meant "not hitting other people physically".

Obviously there are lots of non-physcial ways to harm other people aren't there? Learn to word yor statements more carefully in the future buddy.

We covered this stuff in jurisprudence, Gustav Radbruch said that when a law openly violates the justice principle then a judge or individual in right to strike it out or disobey it.  This guy spent time on the run from the Nazi's during WW2.  Other natural law writers supported the idea that for a law to be valid it must have the public good as its basis. brilliant eyecatching poster.

Just a different perspective: if laws are morally normative, which certain people believes, then all laws are good.

my point is that what is "normal" doesnt mean shit. a propisition is not true or false solely because a majority of people believe it to be so

Just adding, I'm saying that if laws are morally normative, then there can't be "bad laws", and people who disobey laws can't be "good people". I'm just pointing out a plausible, and perhaps already existent situation where "good people disobey bad laws" would make no sense.

Not necessarily. What you said applies to propositions like "2 plus 2 is 4". If 99% of the people on the world believed that 2 plus 2 is 5, that doesn't make 2 plus 2 really 5, it's still 4. But when it comes to propositions of morality, it's unclear whether we have have the same kind of objectivity we have with an mathematical equation.

That said, I'm not even talking about truthfulness and falsity. I'm talking about moral normativity, and in particular, a case where all things in accordance with the moral norm is "good" and anything in discordance with the moral norm is "bad". Hence if any set of law become the moral norm for that society, then for that society, disobedience of the law is morally bad. It really just is a different perspective of looking at the world, it's perfectly fine if you don't think laws should be morally binding on top of being legally binding.

fair enough, but i dont think morals are subjective, so for me at least, the proposition applies.

also, morals and laws are not ideas that always intersect, hence, i dont think its correct to say that "if laws are morally normative..." prehaps "if SOME laws..." makes more sense...

Well, it's not necessarily true. Unjust laws deserve to be opposed, but the whole rhetoric of "bad laws" often becomes rationalizing.

IŽd locate myself between council communism and communist anarchism. So, anti-authoritarian for sure.

while i personally identify with capitalism, in an anarcho society i think there would be room for different modes of economics... thats the beauty, i think, of anarchy... it allows individuals to decide for themselves what they prefer.

prehaps communal economics would work better in some areas... capitalism in another... or a hybrid of the two in yet another...
