Even though by the end of the novel, Huck still does not want to be a part of society, he has made a many choices for himself concerning morality. Because Huck is allowed to live a civilized life with the Widow Douglas, he is not alienated like his father, who effectively hates civilization because he cannot be a part of it. He is not treated like a total outsider and does not feel ignorant or left behind. On the other hand, because he does not start out being a true member of the society, he is able to think for himself and dismiss the rules authority figures say are correct. By the end of the novel, Huck is no longer a slave to the rules of authority, nor is he an ignorant outsider who looks out only for himself.

Huck is tired of this and exclaims, "all I wanted was to go somewheres; all I wanted was a change, I warn't particular" (2). When Huck is living with Widow Douglas, he feels confined and restricted from all of the rules that he has to follow. Throughout these events, Huke clashes against civilization, but he tries to be civilized by attending school. It's the complete opposite of freedom, which he wants. He escapes this when Pap kidnaps him, which sounds like a bad thing, but its's an escape from civilization.
But some realize that not everyone needs to be the same, so they break free from enslavement. There doesn’t need to be one way of living for everyone, despite how society pressures its subjects. Consequently the latter is to quit school and live life the way that one desires, but realistically it’s not going to accomplish anything. In reality, the best way to go about living is to conform outwardly, while inwardly rebelling. That’s why “A” conforms outwardly to others expectations so that inwardly he’ll detest his current life, for something better with Rhiannon, because it’ll do him no favorable outcome to live recklessly.
