“The Pedestrian”, by Ray Bradbury, is a story about a world where technology has overtaken the minds of citizens and turned a pastime, walking, into something seen as outdated and abnormal. Unlike the other citizens in his town, Mr. Mead chooses not to pay attention to the unsaid rules, and embraces acting off his own conscious. He refrains from being drawn into a world blinded by technology and instead, chooses to spend his time walking.
