"Not until that "peaceful person" breaks a law designed to protect the public at large."

First, I agree with you about "follow the money".

I also agree that most people who support unjust laws believe that those laws are just because they "protect the public at large"

I would argue that individuals have rights and responsibilities, not groups such as "the public" or "society".

For a specific example, consider a person who is siting in his living room drinking a beer during alcohol prohibition. Whose rights was he violating? I am saying that you cannot point to a specific individual whose rights were being violated.

Since he would not be a criminal today, the laws that made him a criminal were clearly arbitrary, unlike
a just law that prohibits theft.

Blind obedience to man-made laws is not a virtue. I would say that there is a moral obligation to oppose unjust laws that violate human rights.
