He said “ I wanted to live deep a suck all the marrow out of life”. By that statement he is saying that everyone gets this only life so get the most out of it as you can and not let the little things slow you down. He stated that “ we all still live meanly like ants” meaning that life should be simple but the people around us still try to make each others life difficult. He has stood by what he has said by making his own life simple by living in a cabin out of town and away from people using the land. Thoreau was angus believe
(x) In order to feel guilt, one must be residing to a set morals and violate them. However, since “all values have to be gained and/ or kept by men’s actions” ,(Selfishness), Equality had been following not his individual moral code, as he had not developed his own morals, but the group morality of his society. Ultimately, Equality still believed in his society, as it was all he had ever known. “Tomorrow in the full light of day, we shall take our box and leave our tunnel open, and walk through the streets to the home of the scholars. We shall put before them the truth.

Equality’s road to individuality begins with standing up to his oppressors and learning that thinking for one’s self is the only way to happiness and success. To begin, Equality’s road to freedom begins with finding the underground tunnel system. This is where Equality begins to explore his individuality. He steals candles, flints, knives, paper, glass vials, powders, acids, and even manuscripts. He is breaking the law by taking these things, but he is curious, which is where his individuality stems from.
He did what he wanted to do no matter the consequences, like he when refused to talk to the high power people when they asked where has he been, stole things for himself to use in the tunnel, like candles, flints, knives, paper, glass vials, powders, acids and even manuscripts. He also escaped prison when he was caught for breaking the laws that he committed. The reason for the author to included these things is to show that people is all different and people can also change no matter who they are. Everyone had little bit everything in them as well, a little curiosity, intelligence and bravery. Another reason for the author to put those characteristics in this Prometheus is to have people think they have these characteristics or want these characteristics.
McCandless chose to do the unconventional, making people think he was either foolish or brave and determined, but ultimately he was justified for doing what he did. Over the course of Chris’s life, he suffered many abuses at the hands of his family, like many others across the world; however Chris had no interest in being told what to do with his life, wanting to live life “freely” he wanted to live life making his own choices and not having anyone telling him what he can and can’t do. Just because he chooses to live his life differently doesn 't mean he was dumb or reckless. No one from Chris’s family had any idea what “his plans were” he has not spoken to his family in a couple years (Jon Krakauer 6). McCandless choose to no speak to his family because of they way they acted, they always fought, they always told their kids look at what your mother and or father is doing, Chris had a really hard time in forgiving his parents and he way they always talked about money just made Chris feel like money ruled the world; Chris wanted a whole different lifestyle
But we haven’t seen the changes for Equality who’s supposed to be the strong man who protects his family and do all the work. Until he says “We did this work alone, for no words of ours could take the Golden One away from the big glass which is not glass” (Rand 92). This is not only showing Equality’s change, of doing all the hard work and all the hunting, but also another snapshot at the “new” Liberty and how she loves looking at herself in the mirror. ( conclusion sentence ) In the beginning the relationship was still unknown and Liberty and Equality had just met. As the book moves on Liberty is more submissive, and Equality became stronger and more selfish.
His rebelliousness also backs up Vonnegut’s feelings about freedom. If Harrison was never rebellious or had any rebellious thoughts, he would have stayed in jail and never would have tried to break free. However, Harrison experiences those thoughts and feelings throughout the entire piece, which allows him to chase after his freedom. The fact that he has the urge to pursue freedom, only proves the fact that sometimes people need to take risks to acquire
The Talib did not care because he was like that when he was young. He liked torturing people and beating them up. “I closed my eyes and covered my face with my hands” (Hosseini 271). It may look like the author is for man’s inhumanity to man, but he is not. The only reasons he brings up all that happens, is to show the readers what is happening in the world and how some people are completely oblivious to it.
He preaches that everyone is a person and every person is entitled to their own unalienable rights in which nobody can deny. Although it is not his place to settle disagreements, it is his duty to make sure both sides are fully educated with accurate and up-to-date

Personal Reactions: I liked how Lev’s character was developed throughout the story. Lev’s main focus in the beginning of the book is to escape from his “kidnappers” and be tithed like his parents wanted, but he is so focused on obeying his parents that he doesn’t notice the people who he thinks kidnapped him are trying to save him from being unwound. As the story progresses it’s obvious Lev no longer feels the same way, this is shown on page 226 when Shusterman states, “Once he landed in the safe-house network, he quickly made it known that he was not a guy to be trifled with. He didn’t tell them he was a tithe. Instead, he told them his parents signed the order to have him unwound after he was arrested for armed robbery”.
Equality belonged in the Home of the Scholars, and he knew it. He emphasized this desire when he said, “We wished to be in the Home of the Scholars. We wished it so much that our hands trembled under the blankets in the night, and we bit our arm to stop that other pain which we could not endure. It was evil and we dared not face our brothers in the morning. For men may wish nothing for themselves.” (24) Equality knows he could contribute to his brotherhood, and he knows that his mind is more developed than, his brothers.
