I saw this and thought "Hey, that is great. I love it when people can do things like that..." but then I reached that quote, and saw that these people are seriously deluding themselves.
That is a fundamental cleavage point between Leftists and Conservatives.
Leftists believe this crap, that evil is a "construct", all people are good, and only Poverty, Ignorance, and Disease (PID) cause people to do things that we see as "evil". If all those things could be fixed, there would be no evil.
Conservatives believe that evil DOES exist. And the founders believed that too, which is why they constructed the Constitution the way they did, in an attempt to account for that.
These people are deluded. I hope for a safe journey for them, but for that to happen, they need to take evil into account...or be lucky. These are the kinds of idiots who think hiking mountains in Iran is a wonderful thing, and are surprised to find out that there are people who want to do them harm.
Two vegan SJWs, insulated by parents and schools and the media and their fellow travelers, ignoring any possible advise from bitter, clinger Neanderthals in flyover country, take on the world on their terms. The full article enunciates the stupidity of these Darwin award winners as they stumbled from one warning signal to another that they should turn back. They thought they knew better. Any one on FR knows/knew they did not.
This explains their obsession with gun control as well. Guns are one of those "things" that make otherwise-good people do evil.
