In this essay, originally titled "Resistance to Civil Government" (1849), Thoreau argues for the right to refuse to pay taxes as an act of protest when government policy offends an individual's conscience. In 1845, Thoreau was briefly imprisoned for refusing to pay taxes as a protest against the Mexican War and slavery.
