The Happy Movie is upon us

Things must be grim indeed in the country where the ‘pursuit of happiness’ is regarded as a right for this to have garnered such hype. Now the United States feels obliged to tell the rest of the world how to be happy.

Has anyone seen it? I haven’t yet. When I have my critique will appear here.

In the meantime: forget about ‘pursuing’ happiness—that’ll only make you unhappy. Happiness is a side-effect of doing worthwhile, virtuous things with and for others. Try that instead.

I’ll have more to say about the happiness business.
