When the Pursuit of Happiness Goes Unexamined
Love this article! Thankfully, I can't say that I was ever striving to find the elusive Pursuit To Happiness. So much negativity was built into me that just the realization that I was "enough" was seen and felt as success.
The pursuit of happiness is not meant for all. Marxists want to bring the depression that's lived in so many other countries where only elites flourish. I believe The Founding Fathers had it right all along. They were most likely the most illuminated men of their time, specifically for the purpose of which they set forth to create: A New World with new ideas. The idea embedded in the Constitution are of course still up for debate, they are written in an ingenious way which does allow for some evolution. Also, I do not think the current political paradigm applies to the Founding Fathers, but they were all clearly in favor of limiting control and power of central governments. In today's world that equates more to conservatism, but limiting the power of central governments did also apply to classical liberalism, which is why the country did so well up until now: because the left and the right used to agree on the most important concepts that held our society together.
