Almost Totalitarian Happiness
There’s nothing wrong with those who have a naturally sunny disposition or who enjoy the odd self-help book, says Brinkmann. The problem is when happiness becomes a requisite. In the workplace, for example, where performance reviews often insist on focusing on positive growth rather than genuine difficulties, demanding displays of happiness is “almost totalitarian.” Brinkmann likens insistence on employee happiness to “thought control.”
Thank you for bringing this article to my attention Zoltan Buzady! Fake happiness is all around advertisements, articles, books, conversations. While it hasn’t changed for me, as joy is in my nature, observing this “happiness theater” is sadly reminding me about the hypocritic nature of the recent total control societies from the “Eastern block”. No, it doesn’t work, one can’t execute happiness orders!
As the author of the article suggests, feelings reflect life as it is and it’s not at all any single constant feeling! My list today relates to many different groups and relationships: started with disappointment, went through sadness, pain, and all this in between fulfilment and joy.
