The Unknown Citizen In "The Unknown Citizen," Auden is implying that people are statistics and easily conformed to the normality of society. Throughout the poem, Auden portrays the character as being an all around normal citizen and "one against whom there was no official complaint." In lines 4 and 5, the speaker describes the character as a "saint" and "for in everything he did he served the Greater Community." He served in war, never got fired from his job, popular with his mates, and "normal in every way." Auden develops the theme by describing the character's life through the research of different bureaus, researchers, and psychology workers.
Samson Low was a captain of a ship owned by the Green Star Line. He is a stickler for rules and the proper code of conduct. When writing to his company, he reminds them of "the complete absence of disciplinary action against me" (271). This serves to highlight that he has never been in trouble or broken the rules.

He told me that Takoma Park was a very a quiet neighborhood and does not have too many crimes occurring. He expressed his love for his co-workers and how they have been working in a team to achieve many difficulties that may arise in the community. For instance, during our patrol we had a call concerning a man who was very violent and was causing a lot of trouble in his home. Just a few minutes after the call it was amazing that all the officers were at the scene and trying to preserve peace. Furthermore, Officer Carl works around only the jurisdictional boundaries which he was sworn to serve and maintain peace.
Born a clean slate, he was of no harm to any living being in his midst. Not even the life of an animal was taken for the sake of his ravenous appetite. The love he grew for the De Lacey family came even after having been attacked by villagers, simply for the threat his anatomy seemed to pose. Affected, yes, but not tainted. To refer to him as a monster as of yet would be unjust as he was still his true, unsullied self.
However, when I left work I still had the same mindset interacting with family, friends, or strangers. I learned that the mature, adult thing to do was show respect towards everyone, even when I was in a bad mood or they did not reciprocate the respectfulness. At work I often helped customers who were impatient or rude, and I had to stay calm and polite no matter how offended I felt. I could no longer go into a childish, temper tantrum and had to keep my poise. I carried this attitude through to my everyday interactions with people and enjoyed being courteous; a mindset that led me into adulthood.

Quotes from Huxley sufficiently prove this, for example when Huxley stated “They 're well off; they 're safe; they 're never ill; they 're not afraid of death; they 're blissfully ignorant of passion and old age; they 're plagued with no mothers or fathers; they 've got no wives, or children, or lovers to feel strongly about; they 're so conditioned that they practically can 't help behaving as they ought to behave. And if anything should go wrong, there 's soma. " (220).
