Answer:

The idea of freedom is always more relieving. As it gives an adequate breathing space to the populace. The human has been independent born individual and would alone die. But in between the liaison there is massive dependence that one is build up upon. The dependence on nature and the interdependence on each other. The idea of the world being a global village stands as a testimony to it.

In the fight against diseases that swept the general populations, the famines, colonisation, wars in all the negative sense when the world was taken over by the storm people around the world acted together. During tsunamis, nuclear attacks and disaster the entire world reached where it was needed. This helping hand reflected the high handedness and establishment of peace. This is inter dependence on each other.

The fight against terrorism or climate change can’t be achieved alone without multilateralism and the world cooperation. Thus, certainly world can achieve laurels independently where India’s culture and ethos, or the American way of life stands independent. But the interdependence lies in the learning from each other which again reflects interdependence.

Thus the recent pandemic is a reality that needs for the world to come up together and reduce the consequence of it and stand together to fight against it. Thus Eric Erikson viewpoints need to thus balance independence and interdependence on each other because we stand stronger if we are together. Thus domination of a country is worse than cooperation of all together.
