i agree and disagree that “that government is best which governs least” because for example, the U.S i feel has too little government. people breaks laws so often and they don’t care because it can result in only spending a few nights in jail. for example when the U.S had a prohibition, which means the made the consumption and sales of alcohol illegal. i believe that is a government with too much power, but then at the same time people would go drink illegally in speakeasies and only spend a few night in jail IF they were caught. so i think that is a government with little power. the people don’t take the government seriously. But there’s countries that have too much government power to a point where they will arrest you for things you say. places like China or North Korea where they censor what you read on the internet, you can’t say anything about the government and if you do they could kill you or arrest you for it. the role of the government “is limited only to those spheres of activity within which the individual citizen has the right to act.” when Thoreau “Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward obtaining it. . .” hes talking about a government that has dictatorship because if you speak out against it you will be killed or arrested. the fear that dictators push onto its people cause them not to speak up and live in fear. the role for civil disobedience today is the ways people protest against something like the government. there’s many forms of civil disobedience like marches, rallies, walk-outs, etc. today there have been marches for women’s rights, pro life, black lives matter, and many more. the most recent form of protest will be taking place in march for students to show they want something to be done to prevent school shootings. they will walk out of school, so its a walk-out protest, and stand outside for 17 minutes for the 17 victims that died in the Florida school shooting.
