In it, Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican-American War.
A must read!
In hard times, a reading like this one can influence an individual greatly and "civil disobedience"is one of many of Henry's profound essays.
Also iBooks is amazing, thank you.
Exposition on the relationship of Government and The Citizen
A quick read that elegantly shows American Government is supposed to SERVE The People, and a reminder that all political power flows FROM The People.
A bit anarchistic at times, but the principals hold up in contemporary society.
