Yes. You said it in a nutshell.

Bears are great, wonderful expressions of nature and God's creation, but if you meet a Grizzy in its habitat, you best meet it with your eyes wide open and prepared.

The closing paragraph of the linked article said it all:

"...In the last analysis, it's a story about two young people who, like many other privileged members of their generation of Americans, went to a supposedly top-notch university only to come away poorly educated but heavily propagandized – imbued with a fashionable postmodern contempt for Western civilization and a readiness to idealize and sentimentalize “the other” (especially when the latter is decidedly uncivilized). This, ultimately, was their tragedy: taking for granted American freedom, prosperity, and security, they dismissed these extraordinary blessings as boring, banal, and (in Austin's word) “beige,” and set off, with the starry-eyed and suicidal naivete of children who never entirely grew up, on a child's fairy-tale adventure into the most perilous parts of the planet. Far from being inspirational, theirs is a profoundly cautionary – and distinctly timely – tale that every American, parents especially, should take to heart..."

Well, their self loathing and contempt for the very civilization that provided so much and offered them the choice to go bike in Indian country got them killed.

Stupid is as stupid does.

The End.

Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own …

The 'last analysis' paragraph puts the lie to this SJW's confused mind set.
