Civil Disobedience : Destroyer or Purifier of the American Dream (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Civil Disobedience: Destroyer or Purifier of the American Dream The Iron Law of Decadence is that tendency of all organizations to maintain themselves in a status quo at the expense of needed change and innovation. It can be seen raising its head often throughout our history and would, if it could, tear down our institutions. Possibly Jefferson's statement on the necessity of regular rebellion takes on added meaning when we consider that many needed revisions to our laws have come only after a series of acts of civil disobedience. There are numerous examples of this in our past history.. Perhaps a few examples may be use ful at this time.
