I regard happiness as chimeric and temporary, akin to pleasure, and I tend to agree with the saying ‘we were not put on this earth to be happy’. The evidence regarding happiness, rather than emotional distress, is anyway not very sound. My focus is on why we are so fucked up, not with dangling a false promise of the possibility of happiness. In short, my new theory is that the nasty form of politcal economy that i call Selfish Capitalism caused an epidemic of the Affluenza Virus, accounting for much of the increase in distress since the 1970s.
