Civil Disobedience

This writing is all about how he hates government.  The very first line says "That government is best which governs least".  This writing is very political and hard for me to understand because of that.  The author says many quotes that i think are very interesting.  In the first part of "Civil Disobedience" the author says "all voting is a sort of gaming".  He compares voting to playing checkers.  I think he is saying that voting is pointless but I'm not sure. 

The main point of this writing is to bash government i think.  He does talk a lot about right and wrong through out his writing. 


  1. I thought the writing was also a little hard to understand. I also liked the part where he was talking about voting. I think this applies to today's voting as well. It's not always as clear cut as it appears to be.

  2. Was this clarified in today's discussion? What questions do you still have?
