Dress Code "To renounce liberty is to renounce being a man"

By: Morgan Fraitzl

Jean Jacques Rousseau would not agree with schools not giving the students the freedom of what they want to wear. Rousseau did not like when people would contro; others. More specifically he did not like when people would take other peoples rights. Rousseau states:

"They are born men and free; their liberty belongs to them, and no one but they has the right to dispose of it."

What Rousseau is saying here, is that he wants people to be free and be able to let themselves do what they want. Rousseau does not like when other people take control of what someone else does. The fact that people are telling others what they can and can not wear would sound rediculous to Rousseau. "They are born men and free," That is what Rousseau wants to get across to others, and people controlling what others want to wear and feel comfortable wearing would not settle right with Rousseau. He wants people to be able to make their own choices. He also states:

"Each citizen should think only his own thoughts."

Imagine never being able to do something as easy as tying your shoe, without having to ask someone if you can. Rousseau wouldn't even want to imagine that.
