Publisher's Summary

On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, called Civil Disobedience for short, is an essay by American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau that was first published in 1849. 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 (1846-1848).

outdated and anti social.

The book is a discussion about the fight of a man against taxation and statehood. While some of the points are correct, most of the points scream anti social behaviour and the disassembly of society.
