Talk:Civil Disobedience (Thoreau)
I think maybe "Civil Disobedience" could be the title of a theme article, and so I titled this "Civil Disobedience (Thoreau)" as it is on Wikipedia. I hope this was the correct way of doing it. I've also seen this essay go by "On The Duty of Civil Disobedience" and "Resistance To Civil Government". Maybe redirects are in order? --Teabeard 19:08, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
favourite quote - surely not imagined
From memory (having lost my copy of the text) (one of my all-time filetverlitz) :
"For how can he remember well his ignorance, which his growth so requires, who has so often to make use of what he knows?"
I'm quite sure I got this out of "On the Duty of Civil Disobedience" by Henry David Thoreau. It seems to me this would resonate strongly for
many teachers in the U.S.A. today.
