As a further aid to active reading, one would do well to adopt Emerson’s practice of copious note taking. As Richardson reports, “from almost everything he read, he culled phrases, details, facts, metaphors, anecdotes, witticisms, aphorisms, and ideas. 8776 Over his lifetime, these jottings added up to 785 notebooks and indexes (as well as indexes of indexes) — a comprehensive treasury of insights and thought starters on every subject that ever interested him, which could be tapped in forming his own reflections and writings.
Liberal thinking and free speech are vital organs in a democracy. The right to liberty, equality and fraternity are ideals incorporated in various democracies all over the world. These are the main pillars upon which the institution of democracy rests upon. These rights enable people to criticize governments on issues and policies which are not pro people. The government can be brought down and another put in place if the government become autocratic and arrogant. Moreover, the judiciary also try to check the government if it becomes coercive.
It has been argued by some that male cannot control sexual desires. Chemical castration has been suggested in such cases. This argument does not hold any merit. Also, if true in some cases, chemical castration is a temporary solution to a permanent problem. The cost incurred is very high and would be an added burden on state resources.
One of his favorite books, The Fruits and Fruit Trees of America , formed a similar feedback loop in which the botanical writings aided him in planting over one hundred fruit trees of his own, and both the text, and the experience of tending, pruning, and grafting his orchard, inspired reflections on the analogies between cultivating the soil, and cultivating the mind, as well as the way in which trees and men go through similar seasons of fertility and drought.
Lack of consistency in state policy regarding higher education has contributed to the deplorable state of higher education. The policy of higher education has been dictated by the whims of the ruling party. There has been no consistent policy for higher education. Mostly it has been a patch work and lacks consistency and is driven by vote bank politics as in case of establishment of new IITs and IIMs even though infrastructure for them is still not available after five years of their establishment.

The system of competitive exams also has a bearing on the higher education. Since there is no way to determine the quality of the educational institute, national level competitive exams like NET, GATE etc for admission into research institute are conducted. Also employment in public sector pays very scant consideration to the academic achievements thereby decreasing the interest of the students in the academic courses, which becomes just another qualifying criterion for entering the jobs. Lack of consistency in placement strategy is also seen as a reason for lack of interest in education which increases the dependency on govt. sector jobs.
“individual minds as well are not to be bound by the shackles of reverence for consistency, but they must be brave enough to contradict to-morrow what they have said to-day. Respect is due to the inspiration of the moment.”
The Occupy Wallstreet movement gave rise to similar Occupy movements all over the world like Occupy Canada, Occupy Australia. It has made people aware globally of the inherent tendencies of government to promote class interests. People have become more vigilant and are using their constitutional rights given by democracy to enforce accountability on government. Thus the chances of a similar meltdown happening in the future has been drastically reduced. In no sense can such a movement be termed as a failure.

“The mind is first only receptive. Surcharge it with thoughts in which it delights and it becomes active. The moment a man begins not to be convinced, that moment he begins to convince.”
