All Crusoe’s father ever wanted was for him to be a good, middle class guy but that just wasn’t enough. Robinson wanted nothing more than to travel the world by ship but he struggles against the power of both his father and God. He decides to disobey them both and go out to sea anyway. The Puritan arrangement was when the father viewed as Gods representative because he rejected his father’s advice also. In some ways, Crusoe is even committing Adam and Eve’s wickedness of rebellion but as for Adam and Eve, disobedience develops out of impatience and dissatisfaction with the position God has assigned them.
