His rebellion against society is not one of hate, rather a rebellion of anger towards those who do not accept him. His teachers and father do not allow Paul to be comfortable in his own skin, forcing Paul to obtain only small windows of happiness.
Would you go above and beyond like Chris did to be himself and run away with no word left behind? How would you feel leaving your family with that speechless pain? Chris felt he did not belong anywhere in the society the world was placing him to be.

This would enable him to do bad things but still look good to the public. A hero would never do something like this. He is basically just tricking everybody into thinking that what he is doing is good. If he was a hero and not a robber baron he would actually help everybody in need and not hide the bad thing that he has done. For many reasons Andrew Carnegie was not a hero but a robber baron.
Chris displayed his arrogance all throughout his journey. His arrogance from the start was that he didn’t rely on Human materials. Humankind may not make things perfect every time but they make things because they need them. So Chris was being very arrogant by not using the things created just for his purpose by thinking he could do everything on his own and in the end that was what got him killed. But by the same standard anyone can understand Chris’s thinking.
The innocent actions some take later in life will reward some, and deteriorate others. Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, by J.D Salinger delays his evitable process of growing up partly because of the tragic events that transpired earlier in his life and his ignorance to reality. However , Chris Mccandless differs from Holden in the fact that he fully understands reality but protests to greed of humans and the material possessions of man and still facing the gruesome consequence of his immaturity.

Empathy is also not evident as Sean begins to kick Will out of his office when he gets frustrated and does not act understanding of his feelings. The whole process seems like constant bickering between two friends. It is not the ideal therapeutic alliance, but it producd a desirable result, which is overcoming difficulties and achieving personal growth. I would not change anything in the film, because the therapeutic process is appropriate because it’s fictional and it works well with Will’s character and personality. Sean constructs a strategic therapeutic process that subtly helps Will without being apparent because Will is not the type of person who would admit needing help.

Above all Chris McCandless was an arrogant man. He refused many offers of help he got under the ground of that it was cheating. His arrogance led to him taking unnecessary risks which led to him encountering many hapless events. A quote from Into the Wild, his sister Carine said, “ Chris didn’t think twice about risking his own life, but he never would have put Buckley in any kind of danger (Krakauer 128). This really shows that without a person to keep a handle on him, to give him a conscience about what he was putting himself into, he was really the only one credible for his ultimate demise.
