Take anything to an extreme and it becomes a problem. Care too much and you may weaken the recipient of your kindness. Analyze too much and you may become indecisive. So here's a question: At which point does detachment become unhealthy?
Let's set aside any examples of hermits and consider a normal person who, although voting and participating in civic affairs , seeks to maintain some independent perspective amid the hubbub of life and the sea of information. When does that quest cross a line and become counter-productive?
No answers here. Just wondering.
