Civil disobedience – Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862) was american writer, philosopher and supporter of civil disobedience as the only way that the individual can fight against the growing and unjust state power. Thoreau was a controversial writer, but today we can learn a lot from his essays, especially in this time of growing state power. One of his essays that inspired me is “On Civil Disobedience”, where he explains what civil disobedience means and why it is important to question the state and the role of the individual in it.

Here is the audio book by Thoureau “On Civil Disobedience”:
