Interesting indeed. Today's progressives (liberals) no doubt have huge issues with Thoreau his individualism.



Henry David Thoreau (12 July 1817 -- 6 May 1862) born David Henry Thoreau was an American author, naturalist, transcendentalist, tax resister, development critic, philosopher, and abolitionist who is best known for Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay, Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state.

    Now that they own the joint, he is a criminal of the state and his writings anathematized.
