"If the injustice ... 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." 
-- Thoreau, "Resistance to Civil Government"
