B.The Mexican-American War
In his essay on civil disobedience "Resistance to Civil Government" (1849), Henry David Thoreau criticizes American social institutions, their practice of aggressive war (like the Mexican-American War) and their pro-slavery policies; and he also argues in favor of disobedience when the state is unjust and overrules people's consciences. The ideas of this essay were so valuable at the time that they later influenced notable figures such as Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr.
The correct answer is : D) The Mexican-American War
Explanation: Resistance to civil government deals with the role that the government should play in people's lives and explains when a person has a moral obligation to disobey the law. Thoreau believes that governments are useless and selfish. At the end of his essay Thoreau concludes that the government has not done enough to properly represent the people. He refused to pay his taxes, six years behind to protest slavery and his opposition to the war between Mexico and the United States.
The right answer would be D. taxes.
Henry Thoreau advocates that when you find that your government is using your tax money to finance something unjust (in his case, the Mexican-American war) or is prolonging an unjust situation (such as the slavery), the more just thing to do is to stop paying taxes, in protest, and face the legal consequences.
He states that if every person who is against war or slavery stopped paying his taxes eventually would bring a change on the laws, inciting the politicians on passing laws that favored they way of thinking.
