In the film, Into the Wild, Chris wanted to be in a world where society did not control who he was. He wanted to be free and loved adventures. Id understand him because there are times when I myself want to run away without anyone knowing my destination, but to leave for such a long time and say not one word? He made a lot of mistakes based on ignorance and arrogance. I disagree because how can he just leave without calling and then dying when misused.
Calling someone crazy is one thing meaning they have that crazy side to them, calling someone just plain crazy is the other thing.You’re basically saying someone is doesn’t have another side to them. You can say he was insane all you want, but he was crazy and brave. If he wasn’t brave and he was fearful the whole time. He wouldn’t have found what he was looking for. He would go back home.
I believe Shaun Callarman whom focuses on Chris McCandless is quite harsh in saying Chris had no common sense and saying that he does not admire him for his courage when Chris McCandless was a brave, wise and intelligent man. He knew exactly what he was getting into when he started his journey on going to Alaska. I think that he wanted to explore the wild and experience a different life other than the one he had. I disagree with Callarman saying McCandless was bright and arrogant at the same time. He had no business going to Alaska but that was his tactic for getting away from society.
McCandless Journey to Death Chris McCandless was a well educated and smart man that was eager to leave everything behind and start a new life. McCandless believed that he would truly find himself in nature. He left his old life when the compassion to start a new life, but his arrogance and underestimations over nature caused him to walk into the wild unprepared. McCandless believed that he would conquer nature with his intelligence and academic abilities but he didn 't realize how nature worked until it was too late. McCandless visions of his reality Distorted his views which lead to his failure.
Some people might think in the opposite side that George should not killed Lennie because Lennie did not mean to anything. He has done it without knowing how strong of himself. Lennie made many troubles this might be because of his disability, but this is the reason that he deserves to live. He has done many thing that make George get into trouble and It is better if Lennie has to die because of George shoot him not the other. "All the time he coulda had such a good time if it was not for you” (Steinbeck).
There’s a difference between being ignorant and being intelligent, Chris was staying put on that line. He fell to either side every now and then, for example: burning his money was ignorant. He should have known better to leave with a plan more thought out than “Get to Alaska.” Man vs. Wild’s Bear Grylls, Survivorman Les Stroud, and Man, Woman, Wild’s Mykel and Ruth Hawke are all people who appreciate how fascinating nature can be as well as how great it is to be out in the wilderness away from civilization, but they also understand that they cannot go out ill prepared. Not only did they leave their life with materials that could protect them, nourish them, and help them stay alive, but they studied up on the possible problems they could face both major and very minor. From the beginning of his childhood Grylls was
Tom Brady claimed that he had no knowledge of the game balls being deflated and would give his full cooperation to the investigation; however, this was likely not true. In the NFL, each team provides their own footballs, so the biggest issue other than the simple fact of cheating, was that deflating the balls would have only benefited Tom Brady and the Patriots. Deflating footballs allows the quarterback to grip the ball easier, along with making the football easier to catch. This is especially true in tough whether conditions – like there were during this particular championship game. Even though Brady stated that he was not involved in this scandal, he acted very suspiciously in the days and weeks after.
When the captain responded by telling Collins that it is a risky trip, Collins was uncomfortable in his answer of saying that he will go nonetheless. The conversation was able to manifest the true intentions of Collins, a true hero with the essence of courage would be undaunted by the danger and will want to help for the sake of others. However, Collins was timid about his answer and was uncomfortable with his own response to his captain, showing that he does not actually want to get the water for his comrades because he was indecisive to his answer to the captain. Overall, Crane was able indicate the theme of the story by showing the true reasoning of his actions primarily through his conversations with his comrades and his
To prove that Stacey was really courageous he said, “ He’s hurt bad, Cassie. I gotta get him home.’ He turned away from me and grabbed his pants.” This shows that even though Stacey knew that he could very easily get hurt, he did it anyway. He showed that even though he can be scared, he will still do the right thing. It is really hard to do the right thing, especially when you know that the right thing could end up badly. To show that Stacey is really courageous he did a series of courageous acts.
Chris McCandless abandoned the modern world and chose the wild because he believed that he could improve himself through living in the wild, and found the true happiness of the life. McCandless abandoned his wealthy family because of his complicated relationship with his father, and he was ashamed with his father’s adultery. Therefore, McCandless believed that human relationship was not the only thing that forms happiness, instead a man’s connection with the nature brings joy as well. He also believed the habitual lifestyle was not what people were meant to do, and people shouldn't have more possessions than what they need. For this reason, McCandless traveled with little effects.
