Whoever wrote that is summarily acknowledging their own ignorance, and making excuses for decisions they haven't made yet and seem to expect to. I'd recommend avoiding people with that perspective.

Hmmmm I didn't get that at all, but to each their own!

What I can remeber is...
A since deleted link to a boring article that included a comparison between Trump supporters with skeptical views on mainstream climate science and backcountry goers that deny obvious warning signs of snowpack instabilities. Oh and a sinced edited post with a defensive tone justifying the since deleted link.

I really didn't like how the author implied that everyone will make the same mistakes as he (assuming it was a dude) expects to make, and that his badass crag buddies believe will be their, and accordingly everyone else's demise. Complacency is a real thing. However much to the chagrin of the article's author not everyone is as complacent as he and his friends are by allowing themselves to be that way. They get stuck in a rut, if they expect to expect to ignore said fact and continue to follow that rut, then they will. Obviously he is an inexperienced guide, that was evident by the way he described his experience.

After riding and working with some of the most experienced and knowledgeable guides around for several years I've learned some things, like how a professional guide would never leave their client(s) behind for the sake of showing off, so the client(s) is/are in the position to unknowingly follow their hasty lead. Of course, some situations are unavoidable and nobody is immune from making mistakes. Hasty demeanor however, is always avoidable.

Nothing wrong with sharing any articles, it is worth pondering and always good to discuss different perspectives. Even if any of us have different opinions.
