The Balance of Society and Solitude.

“Solitude is fine but you need someone to tell that solitude is fine.”

Honoré de Balzac

Since the vast majority of people moved out of the wilderness and into a more “civilized” society, the question of whether this was/is the best way for people to live has been in question.  Are we more natural beings that would thrive best closest to nature and isolation?   Are we more social beings that thrive best when our intellect and social skills are applied together?  Is there a balance between the two?

I’m interested in hearing others perspective on this in greater detail. Please leave yours in the comments below.
