Many readers such as Martin Luther King and Gandhi have been inspired by Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience, where Thoreau recounts his night spent in jail for tax evasion, and he tells the audience how his life was changed from the experience. Thoreau did not trust the Government with his money because he did not know what the Government planned to use the money for. He much preferred to pay the taxes or donate money to the projects that he himself thought worthy of his hard earned money. Thoreau used images such as the walls of the jail, the window in his cell, and the change that he went through during his night spent in jail to inspire his readers to live their lives freely and how they want to.
