What dependency is

Some confuse people voluntarily working together to their mutual benefit and usually to the benefit of others, as dependency. Dependency is relying upon others to provide for you.

Our ancestors relied on voluntary cooperation for their safety and to provide food; our species wouldn’t have made it otherwise. Voluntary cooperation is wired into our human nature by evolution, dependency is a later development and not one of the better characteristics of our nature.
