The problem is not the presence of dependencies, but the number of dependencies. Instead of using a single framework and then writing the things missing in this framework, many programmers will import a package for each minor piece of code.

Leaving aside the security issues (without reading the code, how do you know that the package doesn't contain malicious code in addition to the useful stuff?), the maintenance overhead of so many packages tends to be prohibitive. I would prefer to use fewer packages, and not have the headache of working out whichg version of X is compatible with Y, etc.

I won't comment on the practice of some developers of making breaking changes to their code - either by renaming functions or by changing the functionality of existing functions. Any such comments would not be KSS.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
