Civil Disobedience Resistance to Civil Government is an essay by Thoreau that was first published in It argues that people should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that people 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.
