Autonomy allows everyone to have individual freedom; autonomy allows people to be as creative as they can to get something done. When people are given autonomy they are given independence, this is telling that person that they have been given full control to do whatever they want to make an important decision. I do believe though that too much autonomy can be bad and that you do not need full autonomy to make decisions and be happy. If someone is given too much autonomy then they can let the power go to their head and make stupid decisions, whereas someone with little autonomy may not have to make such a tough decision. Autonomy is great responsibility that should not be thrown around to just anyone or given out at full control.
People should be given out close to full autonomy, but there should be guidelines that they must follow. Equality 7-2521 expresses to us that when he works alone he can think more clearly and be more creative. Equality 7-2521 is able to build a light bulb by him self because his thoughts are flowing freely and he doesn’t have to worry about others’ decisions or thoughts. Clearly when Equality 7-2521 has autonomy he works better, as I believe more people would be successful when given autonomy. Additionally, I also believe that people don’t have to have full autonomy to make choices that will help make their lives better. Sita remarks that you don’t need full independence to be happy. Sita is not allowed to go out and search or date to find her husband, this choice is given to the parents. Sita is without autonomy here but agrees that her parents should be making this important decision, for they have more experience then she does in marriage. In conclusion you do not always need autonomy to make the right decision or be happy.
Everyone deserves to make their own decisions, for it’s their life and they should be responsible enough to make the right decisions for themselves. Albert shows us that only he knows...
