We should be capable of being independent for our basic needs. We are socially dependent as humans and should not shut ourselves off from others.
There is an African philosophy, Ubuntu, that basically states you can not be fully human without human interaction. We are a combination of us and the effects of interacting with everyone we have ever met. It is an interesting idea that I have come to love.
love this answer :-)
:) I'd love to claim the idea as my own but I only observed the philosophy and appreciated it. I heard Nelson Mandela give a speech about it once. Have a look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODQ4WiDsEBQ
