Are humans beings estranged in essence by nature or anti-social creatures? We ponder this question many of times wondering if we just thrive in society by nature or we just anti-social individuals.

I do not believe so, I think that we involve our selves in every aspect of the world. From the littlest detail to the biggest factor.
