Careful with "obvious"

If A, then B. If B, then C. Therefore, A leads to C.

Not really, but it's a comforting way to interpret a situation which, by all means, is quite linear.

Yet, both what we consider linear and obvious can be traps to a good interpretation of the world around us. That's why context plays such an important part, and each case is but a single case comparing to others.

Independence is such a great concept, both in personal and societal ways, because it helps us realize we can be who we want to be, not necessarily depending on others. Does this mean that not depending on others is the way to be truly happy?

According to the best communities (both on and offline), no. So, which is right?

Sorry, wrong question... why does any of these examples have to be absolutely right comparing to the other?
