  • Willing to go the distance

    Christopher McCandless was a person that went for what he wanted and ultimately to him he died a happy life doing what we wanted to do and perceiving the wild that was out there to find, he was a go getter and not only spoke with words but also with actions.

  • Helped Less Fortunate

    Man, you never really see a person giving out food to the homeless. I would understand people not giving money since you don't know what they will do with it--but he helped the less fortunate, while many wouldn't. He handed out burgers, donated money to OXFAM, and even let a homeless man stay in a trailer by his home because nobody was occupying it. I don't know about you but thats pretty admirable to me.

  • A great man met his end the way he wanted it

    His home was toxic and abusive, it was only natural he would want to leave and make a life for himself, he lived a better life in 22 years than most people live in their entire lives, and that should be admired as his adventurous spirit took him on a journey of self discovery

  • Yes he should.

    He had the stones to do what many of us of thought about and don't have the courage to do. Yes he could have done things different, like bring a map, more food etc. But how easy it is to sit back and pick apart what someone should have done. RIP Chris.

  • Truth, Independence, Freedom

    His intent was to live totally free and to find himself. He was intelligent enough to know that it may cost him his life. He should absolutely be admired for his ambition to do things the earnest way and not fall into the norm of todays hand out society. I don't feel he made any mistakes as this outcome is one of many that may have occurred. You don't admire a person for how they died but rather how they lived.

  • Because i say

    This is why we can have nice things because mccandless was a nice guy who messed up. He wanted to experience the road that was less traveled by people. He wanted to live off of nature for as long as he could and experience what nature had to offer him.

  • Admirable qualities persevere regardless of results

    Christopher McCandless undertook a risky and difficult venture in an effort to enhance his life and improve his personal experiences and not looking for fame and gain. It is unfortunate that he made a mistake which ultimately cost him what must have been an agonizing and prolonged death. One regrettable decision does not diminish admirable traits that reflect human spirit.

  • He was unprepared.

    He was unprepared even after he was warned countless times by people that he met on his way to Alaska. He was selfish and didn't care how his actions affected his friends and family. Granted, he tried to leave the bus but was unable to but that wasn't until after he had hurt countless people.

  • Selfishness should not be cheerished.

    He felt no responsibility towards people who has raised him, invested on him, liked him. He had no sense of duty towards anyone. I see nothing admirable in a selfish act of a white priviledged man when millions of people in the world need help. He could die helping people in Africa, South East Asia, etc. That would make me admire him.

  • No, he was a crazy schizophrenic.

    He has somehow gained the attention of those who for whatever reason, that extremist libertarianism is divine. Hence, his quest for divine providence was righteous shot down by the intelligence of God and his omnipotent ability to thankfully control the outcome of lives. However this has the unfortunate effect of allowing the less educated pro-libertarians of this planet to have a 'martyr' to gather by.

  • No, it was a needless death.

    No, Christopher McCandless should not be admired because he died needlessly. People should not be encouraged to do things that they are not trained to do. In McCandless case, his unwillingness to stay connected to the world ultimately cost him his life at a young age. People should be more cautious than that.
