Two hundred years ago, David Henry #Thoreau was born in the town of Concord, Massachusetts. He later preferred his name as Henry David Thoreau. Here are some excerpts from his famous essay "Resistance to Civil Government, or Civil Disobedience":

"If a thousand men were not to pay their tax bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State to commit violence and shed innocent blood."

"Unjust laws exist; shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once?"

"All voting is a sort of gaming, like checkers or backgammon, with a slight moral tinge to it, a playing with right and wrong, with moral questions; and betting naturally accompanies it."
