I agree with the well rounded education idea. That was my belief when I first began (still is actually) but not for the education system itself.
I apologize for hijacking this thread.
My intention was not to be about me so to speak but to express a possibility as to why someone may have chosen to get off the grid.
I realize that this young man had some issues so to speak, and that was some of the reason he died but, I can see how some would romanticize what he did and even possibly envy him in some way the fact that he was able to make that choice (not to die of course)
I would more like to go, as I mentioned earlier, the route that our Dave Peterson did after I retire, and financially I would be able to (if I still have a pension by then). But, not so sure my much better half would go along with it….:shock:
