Civil disobedience
All men recognize the right of revolution; that is, the right
to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government, when its
tyranny or its inefficiency are great and unendurable. But almost
all say that such is not the case now. But such was the case, they
think, in the Revolution of '75.(10) If one were to tell me that this
was a bad government because it taxed certain foreign
commodities brought to its ports, it is most probable that I should
not make an ado about it, for I can do without them. All machines
have their friction; and possibly this does enough good to
counterbalance the evil. At any rate, it is a great evil to make a stir
about it. But when the friction comes to have its machine, and
oppression and robbery are organized, I say, let us not have such
a machine any longer. In other words, when a sixth of the
population of a nation which has undertaken to be the refuge of
liberty are slaves, and a whole country is unjustly overrun and
conquered by a foreign army, and subjected to military law, I
think that it is not too soon for honest men to rebel and
revolutionize. What makes this duty the more urgent is the fact
that the country so overrun is not our own, but ours is the
invading army.(11)
