Captain Fantastic

1:19 p.m.

I want to take a class about Captain Fantastic. I want to discuss whether Ben Cash is fair in his discussions/arguments, whether he's in the right or the wrong (about raising his kids the way he does), and if he does harm as a parent. Is it abuse? Is his iconoclasm valid or performative? Have we all had this fantasy of living in the woods the way he does with his family? Are the kids really critical thinkers, or are they trying to earn the approval of their father? Is their father mentally stable? There are so many things I want to discuss. This is a paper I would want to write.
