Analysis Of Walden By Henry David Thoreau

271 Words2 Pages
Thoreau is trying to say that each individual person is programmed differently. He is absolutely correct in regards to the fact that everyone wants to live their live different then their companions. Not everyone wants to be the exact occupation when they are older or people do not live exactly the same, which ultimately makes us humans. Humans are individual molded by a greater being, God in my religion, to be different. So it just makes sense that each individual has different aspirations and different actions to obtain them. However, what is wrong with society is that people are trying to mold others into being just like each other. Everyone nowadays has to learn the same way, know the same stuff, and be someone that they truly are not. Our country is based off of the belief that everyone has the right to be who they want to be and what they want to believe in. This belief is overshadowed by the ignorance of the people who run the country. The ignorance that they think they know what is best for everyone and that everyone should live their life by their standards. I am not trying to condone the fact that some people do not have the ability to make a rational decision for themselves and for others.
