Default civil disobedience

Conn made the point that civil disobedience must necessarily be about breaking a specific law you believe is unjust. That's just wrong. Thoreau invented the phrase civil disobedience to describe his acts of protest, which were specifically not paying taxes. He wasn't doing this to protest taxes, but to protest slavery and the US-Mexican war.
