Re: “Heroes of civil disobedience: Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Aaron Swartz?

"And it's worth keeping in mind that the punishment Swartz would have had to accept had he been willing to go the civil disobedience route would have been no more than six months."

The civil disobedience route does not mean you accept a plea of guilty. You assert your innocence on the grounds that the law is unjust. And according to what his girlfriend Taren said last week at SXSW Aaron *was* being threatened with 35 years if he didn't admit guilt and accept the plea.
