Listing the best civil disobedience quotes is easy. Anyone can do it. I just did it. But it takes a great deal of tact to endorse its practice.
On the one hand, I do believe civil disobedience is a moral response to an immoral state of affairs; on the other, I hardly need some boneheaded misanthropes with a pile of bricks and a lust for shop windows to go blaming this article for their poor life choices.
Is it civil disobedience to create a ruckus for the sake of disrupting the status quo? No – even if your intentions for burning down a broad swath of Main Street are as pure as the driven snow, the act would amount to mere vandalism. It’s better to leave blowing up urban centers to the experts who allocate your tax dollars.
Civil disobedience is when you refuse to obey unjust laws or pay unjust taxes or fines. Whether or not you deem a law unjust depends wholly on your philosophy. For example, I do not believe that gun control is moral, let alone Constitutional, which is why I decided to become one of the tens of thousands of Americans who lost their entire gun collection during a freak boating accident. Likewise, I do not believe that taxation in any form is moral. That is why I legally changed my race to Irish Setter and bark whenever I see census takers approaching.
A word of caution before you go out civilly disobeying the government: It’s dangerous to do it alone. If you’ve got a lot of followers (or, if you’re not charismatic, are one of a lot of followers), then you’ve got a good chance at starting the 21st Century’s Salt March. But if you’re just some guy in a cabin who doesn’t want to fund wars of imperialism, then you’d better hope you look good wearing orange rompers.

NEW DESIGN: THE ANTI GOVERNMENT
CHECK OUT OUR ANTI GOVERNMENT COLLECTION
Let us tell you how democracy works. They plaster on $2,000 suits and bleach-whitened grins, read focus group-approved platitudes off a teleprompter, and run local TV ads showing them enjoying time in gazebos with their Hallmark greeting card-perfect families. You pick the one who seems the least abhorrent and fill out the little bubble next to their name in a plastic booth.
They then proceed to do whatever the hell it is they’ve been bought and paid to do, chiming in occasionally to praise the community they’re elected to serve and would gladly steamroll into a parking lot if their benefactors willed it. That’s how democracy works.
But you filled out the little bubble next to their name, and they’re grateful to you for that. Be sure to do the same thing again in two years.
In so simple an image, our Anti Government Canvas illustrates that the desires of a few politicians vastly outweighs those of the American people. Wear it to show that you haven’t been fooled by the endless torrent of empty promises. They only need you for all of about two seconds, and buddy, you don’t need them for even half that long.
