In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn author Mark Twain uses Huck to demonstrate how ones conscience is an aspect of everyday life The decisions we make are based on what our conscience tells us which can lead us the right way or the wrong way Hucks deformed conscience leads him the wrong way early on in the chapters but eventually in later chapters his sound mind sets in to guild him the rest of the way until his friend Tom Sawyer shows up Society believes that slaves should be treated as property Hucks sound mind tells him that Jim is a person a friend and not property Society does not agree with that thought which also tampers with Hucks mind telling him that he is wrong Though Huck does not realize that his own instinct are more moral than those of society Huck chooses to follow his innate sense of right instead of following societys rules In chapter 16 Huck goes through a moral conflict of whether he should turn Jim in or not I was paddling off all in a sweat to tell on him but when he says this it seemed to kind of take the tuck all out of me 89 Right off from the beginning Huck wanted to turn Jim in because it was against societys rules to help a slave escape and Huck knew it But when Jim said that Huck yous de bes fren Jims ever had en yous de only fren ole Jims got now 89 made helped Huck to grasp the concept that there is a friendship in the making Even though Huck didnt turn Jim in he is till troubled by his conscience when the slave catchers were leaving because he knows it is wrong to help a slave Still Huck cannot bring himself forward to tell on Jim thus showing that his innate sense of right exceeds that of society Huck finds out
