Individualism & Morality
Individualism is the idea that being independent and self reliant, will create freedom for you to control your own fate. I believe in this because it gives us more belief in ourselves, instead of being forced to believe the government or society. It makes you a better individual overall. Us Transcendentalists believe the best thing anyone could do for themselves is to explore their mental state of mind. When you listen to yourself, you gain a sense of freedom that is personal according to your thoughts and beliefs.
Morality is the system of choosing things that are right or wrong, good or bad. I believe in this transcendentalist belief because we are judged by our moral beliefs. In nature, we are never done growing mentally. Our choices will always reflect our morality, because of the choice we decided. Morality makes you a better individual because it holds you reliable for the decisions you make.
