look up any word, like tbt:
 
1.
A moment where an individual sees through the blasphemy of a given or spoken rule in a situation, and in a fashion resembling the philosophy of Henry David Thoreau, speaks against the rules or laws set on the situation often in the name of justice.

A potential form of anarchy for a just cause. The basic use of a Thoreau moment allows the individual to stand up for their rights when they deserve it most. Despite the parallel structure in diction, this is not to be confused with a nigga moment.
Security guard(across the hall): HEY! YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED IN THE HALLWAYS!
Person(getting something from his locker): But...I have a pass! And I need something from my locker!
Security guard: IF YOU DON'T GO BACK TO CLASS NOW, I'M SENDING YOU TO THE OFFICE!
Person: But...I'm not a delinquent! And I didn't do anything wrong!
Security guard: I'M SENDING YOU TO THE OFFICE! YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE HALLWAYS RIGHT NOW!
Person: Fine then, I'll talk to the principal about this, because this isn't right! An unjust law is no law at all!
