The subject matter is primarily based on the great ideas and events of history.
    
Civil Disobedience
discusses Henry David Thoreau's arguments for civil disobedience:
the deliberate violation of laws for reasons of conscience. Thoreau's concept is based on the
belief that no law should command blind obedience and that non-cooperation with unjust laws
is both morally correct and socially beneficial. 
    
The Liberator
was a leading voice for abolitionism in the nineteenth century. Abolitionism
called for the immediate emancipation of slaves, based on the principle that individuals own their
bodies, labor, and the fruits of their labor. Abolitionists vigorously opposed gradualists, who called
for phasing out slavery over a long period of time; they also opposed colonizationists, who wished
to relocate former slaves in another country.
