It’s not like I hate them or anything. I just can’t see them. I can close my eyes and form my sister’s face behind my eyelids, but not my parents’ faces.

Chris McCandless, whose story is analyzed in Into the Wild, by Jon Krakauer, is a young adult who decides to leave his known habits and material belongings behind and live a completely self-sufficient life in the wilderness, a choice which ultimately leads to his death. In doing that, he also forfeits his family and friends. With that in mind, a question can be posed regarding the ethics of said behavior.

At this time Ransom tells his colleague, Devine, to let the boy go. Devine releases the young man, drugs Ransom, and kidnaps him instead of the boy. Ransom sticks to his word and returns the boy to his mother, but at what cost to himself? Now, everyone can agree that to be virtuous is to be one who makes an active choice to follow a high moral standard in all circumstances.
