Rebecca Tompkins,                 I feel like you either liked or didn’t like Thoreau, you either agree with what he is saying or you  don’t, I don’t really see a way that you could “sit on the fence” about him. Thoreau is very gutsy and likes  to speak his mind and call people out in his writing, but he also seems like he’s trying to convince his  reader’s  readers  to agree with him about the government and slavery. Thoreau definitely comes on very  strong, but throughout the reading I found myself captured by what he was saying and understanding where all his ideas were coming from.                   I could not imagine being a man looking for a job with Thoreau’s views on society and the  government. “Thoreau confronted a problem he would grapple with throughout his life: how to earn a  living without sacrificing his own freedom and autonomy” (Thoreau 792). In this quote it even points out

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
