Henry David Thoreau: If the...

If the injustice is part of the necessary friction of the machine of government, let it go, let it go: perchance it will wear smooth,-certainly the machine will wear out. If the injustice has a spring, or a pulley, or a rope, or a crank, exclusively for itself, then perhaps you may consider whether the remedy will not be worse than the evil; but if it is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter- friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong which I condemn.
/Henry David Thoreau/

We lived a very quiet life. We'd never go out. We once went to that sex orgy, and I didn't like it, and that was that. And there were maybe one or two cocktail parties.
