Everywhere I look I see interdependence, among individuals, groups, species, and bio-systems. On the grand scale, we all depend upon the sun-which was born of the universe we are part of. We are born helpless and, if we live out a natural life, we often end up the same way. In between, for one example, city folk depend on farmers for food and farmers rely on city folk to improve farming technology. This is cooperation; it is not command and control.
