Transcendentalism is an intellectual and spiritual movement in which the individual is encouraged to stress their personal connections with the universe, and this involves the concept of non-conformity (which should strengthen the feelings of individuality) and can be extended to apply to radical and unique ideas, such as those that Thoreau is stating here. His essay is essentially a criticism of the government, and I’d particularly like to note his dislike for slavery, since transcendentalism ties into early ideas of abolitionism, which likely were far and few between during the time. Thoreau’s confident criticism shows his value for his individual ideals, and thus connects to the Romantic movement.
