I think that Thoreau's arguments on Civil Disobedience are still very relevant today. Civil Disobedience will never become obsolete. Man has always oppressed each other in some way. Opposition against the status quo and legal law is a fundamental right of people. Non-violent civil disobedience is often more effective than violent methods. Like Gandhi, Thoreau, or Martin Luther King, people must also be willing to accept the consequences of their quest for change.
