In the ending of Chapter 2 Thoreau states that he wants to see through all the opinion and bias in newspapers to get to the truth. In his conclusion (chapter 18),Thoreau asks us to wake up from the lies, bias and agendas of the material world. Like Chapter 2, he asks us to seek the truth through contemplation and living deliberately in the natural world.
