Another example is, in the text it says, “If he hadn’t run out of whitewash he would have bankrupted every boy in the village. Tom said to himself that it was not such a hollow world, after all”.
At the beginning of this movie, Todd was just the new kid who wanted nothing more than to just blend in and make good grades. However, Mr. Keating takes a special interest in Todd to help him discover who he is and what he stands for. Throughout the film, Todd comes out of his shell, allowing the viewers to see and relate to who he really is. However, it is not until the very last scene, that Todd completely denounces society’s rules in front of the headmaster. He disregards all punishment and repercussions that might occur in order to figuratively and literally stand up for what is right, which in this case is Mr. Keating.

Being stranded on an island with no contact with society may not be a reality for many people. The longer people have no contact with society, the more they rely on their instincts to survive. This requires looser morals and beliefs, and as William Golding argues, even a descent into savagery.

There were various things McCandless could have done that would’ve changed his fate significantly. McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time, I believe he had no business going into Alaska.
