Is Christopher McCandless a martyr?

Postby cpb50 » Tue Dec 13, 2016 6:02 am

Throughout the martyrological tradition, I find that there are 3 values that are characteristic of martyrs. (1) Martyrs commit acts of transgression or defiance (2) Martyrs hold strict values which they are willing to sacrifice for (3) Martyrs are a cultural product of stories and media. In my opinion, Chris fulfills all three of these requirements. What do you think?
