"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves." Abraham Lincoln. Every individual must exercise his right to be free in expressing his thoughts .He has to be unique and different.Each individual must believe in his \her moral worth. Society has to promote the exercise of one's goals and desires and so value independence . Each one must have the freedom to oppose external interference upon one's own interests by society or institutions such as the government. Advanced societies are chiefly concerned with protecting individual freedom against obligations imposed by social institutions .Each one must be provided by an individual specific rights such as the freedom from forced labor, the right to liberty and security, right to a fair trial, the right to defend one's self, the right to privacy, freedom of conscience, and freedom of expression. Modern societies supports civil liberties, or which emphasizes the supremacy of individual rights and personal freedoms over and against any kind of authority .Although some people think that they have to fit in, I believe that they should be unique and different.

Many writers have explored the theme of being unique and different in their literary work. For example, in Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell , Winston Smith sets out to challenge the limits of the Party’s power.It is a political novel that portrays a state in which government monitors and controls every aspect of human life to the extent that even having a disloyal thought is against the law.Winston feels frustrated by the oppression and rigid control of the Party, which prohibits free thought, and any expression of individuality. Winston dislikes the party and has illegally purchased a diary in which to write his criminal thoughts. He has also become fixated on a powerful Party member named O’Brien, whom Winston believes is a secret member of the Brotherhood. In addition, he has an affair with Julia a lady whom he loves.
