Thoreau and Civil Disobedience

Open Culture has a post titled Henry David Thoreau on When Civil Disobedience Against Bad Governments Is Justified: An Animated Introduction. They conclude, "Politics, as history occasionally and forcefully reminds us, is negotiation without end, and sometimes negotiations have to get ugly." Watch this short 5 1/2 minute video explaining that we have a duty to protest:


  1. I keep going to my friend Sally's to watch the videos you have. This is even more appropriate today. Seems Thoreau was speaking to us this very day. The similarities were too great to pass off as coincidental. GOOD choice!

    1. There have been protests every day since the inauguration. He has yet to reach out to any of the protesters :(
