Idealistic Young Man “Flies Too Close to the Sun” – Could Have Been Me

My son Joseph has a YouTube channel of his own, and his special interest is history. His most recent video tells the story of Chris McCandless, a young man who I describe as “flying too close to the sun” philosophically speaking. He had the same kind of mistaken ideas about the natural world being a kind of Garden of Eden that many people today have (and I used to have). In Chris’s case, he ended up paying for this philosophical error with his life, but only after he realized the truth near the end. Click below to watch and see what happened.
