Although he did explain some of the reasons for doing so no one knew what was the exact point that made him have a belief that society was not needed.

I agree with his interpretation of how to live the happy life because one cannot help another at the expense of their own happiness. As Dalai Lama once said, “Happiness is not something really made. It comes from your own actions.” Russell writes “the happy life’’ from the point of view of a hedonist and a moralist.
McCandless is a caring and modest person while he was been thoughtless about his trek as Krakauer reveals throughout the book. Krakauer portrays Chris McCandless as a person in the world who did not wish to ally with society and wanted to flee from people to become unrestricted of rules of society. Also, he did not feel attached to his community and people so he decided to escape from public as much as he could. Therefore, McCandless can be called as unintelligent, but his journey proves how humble and warm- hearted he is as a person. Can it be said that McCandless found himself before his death?
The rest of society’s relation to conformity is that they follow the norms and not question its impact on their daily life, whereas Leonard Mead doesn’t question the norms, he just does is his norms which is totally different from the rest of society’s but repeats them.

Equality 7-2521: The Individual “No one should part with their individuality and become that of another” (BrainyQuote 5). William Ellery Channing, a poet and preacher, stresses the significance of staying true to oneself and not being succumbed to be another being. Similar to Channing’s statement, Equality 7-2521 found the importance of embracing the freedom to think, isolation, and individualism in the midst of being in a collective society.
