In these times of social isolation and government encroachment, we can take some lessons form Henry David Thoreau’s Walden and essay Civil Disobedience.
Walden is a journal Thoreau wrote as he lived off on his own on the Lake Walden in New England. It was a time where he got away from society, which allowed him to see it clearly. It’s a great look at the society at the time, and we could learn something today as we are shut in as well.
Civil Disobedience is his essay on, well, civil disobedience. He talks about how he takes steps to push back against a government he finds unjust due to slavery.
If you’d like to read more about the mid 1800’s and the reasons one might disobey civil authorities, you can buy the book below.
