Imagine you were someone who could do whatever thing for his own personal gain. How could the feeling of taking over a certain part of the world be like? Wouldn’t it be nice to realize that you have the supremacy to do everything? All of this is generally considered a fantasy of mankind. There is no man or women that can do all. There was one fellow, who had this feeling, of conquering a certain space from which not many people attempt to do. This man, Chris McCandless, had been filled with hubris in his mind to conquer the outside part of society, the wild. Although his spirits for an attempt to accomplish this were so high, all’s not so well that ends not so well; which, in other words, came forth the death of Christopher Johnson McCandless. This man, was a man who, unlike many of us, thought that by following his hubris, and conquering nature by living there a long time all by himself, he would be considered a man who had the capability to conquer almost everything. Chris McCandless was a very unconventional thinker, has the spirits of adventure, and enjoys freedom. Plus, from every part of information that we have acquired from Jon Krakauer’s Into the Wild, we must assume that it is Chris’ own hubris that leads him to his own certain demise, because what if we assured that the flaws of society today lead him to his loss of life? More than one person like Chris should’ve been mentioned that their scenario’s were very similar or the exact same of Chris’ case that he himself had possessed in his life.
First, Chris was an unconventional thinker, which meant that he never conformed to specific pieces of society. He merely takes ideas from his readings and uses them to be the owner of his philosophy. Not everyone would use ideas that come from people that were never popularized or anything of the sort. Chris, on the other hand, was someone who wanted to share his own perspectives on society and have many people think what he thinks. For instance, he speaks with a man named Ronald Franz, whom he had taken care of Chris when he first met him on Chris’ journey to conquer nature. Chris explains, “Don’t settle down and sit in one place. Move around, be nomadic, and make each day a new horizon.
