Superior piece of work which shaped me as a child. This quote by Carlos Fuentes describes the character precisely. “Robinson Crusoe, the first capitalist hero, is a self-made man who accepts objective reality and then fashions it to his needs through the work ethic, common sense, resilience, technology, and, if need be, racism and imperialism.”
