Obedience is Immoral

Blind obedience is always immoral.  Obedience that isn't blind is often also immoral.  Everyone with a conscience recognizes the possibility that an authority can issue a command to do something immoral, and in that situation, disobedience is the only moral choice.

At what age ought we to confirm the natural suspicion in children of these philosophical truths?
