Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience

Overall, I think that, although Thoreaus essay was well thought out and written, it’s a touch too long winded for me.
I ended up reading the thing twice, to try and gain a better understanding. Although i like Thoreau’s ideas of the way people petition and argue, yet do nothing of great importance, means they achieve nothing. I think this is a good life lesson to learn and will certainly be using it towards something i may feel strongly about in the future.

Although I feel his meaning was clever and well achieved, i can’t say i particularly liked Thoreua’s Civil Disobedience 🙂
