Civil Disobedience By Henry David Thoreau

Civil Disobedience

Henry David Thoreau


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 21 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1849.

Description

In this essay, 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.
