Why does Holden want to be the catcher in the rye? What are the positive and the negative aspects of his fantasy?

Holden wants to save other children from what he's experienced..... to preservce their innocence. A positive aspect would be Holden's obvious compassion and desire to protect..... the negative would be the fact that it is impossible to protect the innocent, we can only buffer the transition.
