"I heartily accept the motto,--'That government is best which governs least;' and I should like to see it acted upon more rapidly and systematically." So begins Henry David Thoreau's argument about opposing the laws and acts of an unjust government. Published in 1849 under the title "Resistance to Civil Government," Thoreau states that no person's conscience should be overruled by any authority in the wrong. Thoreau's influential philosophy has been adopted by many great leaders of nonviolent resistance including Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.
