Some people think individuals are more and more dependent on each other. Others believe we are more and more independent. Discuss both views and give your own opinion

Nowadays, there are different opinions about whether
people
are more independent or not.
This
article will discuss these two perspectives. On the one hand, it is true that today's
people
live a more self-reliant lifestyle than ever before. the main reason for
this
trend is because of the development of technologies, especially the Internet, which provides easy access to various knowledge and skills.
Accordingly
, help from teachers and senior workers is no longer necessary for both students and junior staff, and most
people
are able to achieve their assignments on their own.
Moreover
, a growing number of
people
are addicted to online activities,
such
as playing video games and watching TV programmes. they prefer interaction with computers rather than communication with others. Obviously,
this
trend causes a great gap between family members and friends.
On the other hand
, it is
also
true that nowadays
people
became more dependent on each other on a global scale and from the aspect of industrial production.
Firstly
, with the development of globalization, our world has become a global village.
As a result
, cooperation among countries becomes common and necessary.

and produce and manufacture goods in developing areas because of the lower cost of raw materials and labours.
Furthermore
, because of the standardization and industrialization of production in modern societies, each individual only plays a small part in the whole working process. In another word, every job or achievement needs the contribution of a huge group of
people
from various fields. In conclusion, on a smaller scale,
such
as in families, workplaces and schools,
people
become more independent than ever.
However
, on a larger scale,
such
as throughout the whole world and the whole society,
people
get closer relationships with each other.
