The Politics of Happiness – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Dr. Ben Carson

Money can’t buy happiness. But it can get you into the theater of the absurd. Donald Trump calls Ted Cruz a liar. Marco Rubio jumps in and also calls Cruz a liar. Cruz responds by saying that it is Trump and Rubio that are misrepresenting the facts. Jeb Bush tries to talk over Donald who grimaces and mocks. This quartet spends more time attacking each other than discussing the issues, a confederacy of prickly self-servers

John Kasich makes a reference to women in kitchens voting for him and that incenses the Republican Party. But Cruz is not done as he fi res a campaign offi cial for doctoring a picture. Jeb proves Trump to be correct when during a meeting Jeb begs the audience to ‘please applaud.’ This was perhaps the lowest energy of the campaign so far.  

On the other side Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are locked in a battle for every vote but Hillary faces credibility problems with those emails. Just when you think that the show couldn’t get any more banal the Pope enters the fray. At a Town Hall meeting in South Carolina Trump was asked why he called former President George W. Bush a liar. He deflected the question by saying that he couldn’t quite remember.

    Have some disagreement with this article. Don’t recall reading how happiness is defined. Years back I did some research on the question of happiness and learned what seem obvious. Happiness is a feeling. If memory hold one psychiatrist said it comes with the flow of certain biological chemicals (hormones, I in think) to certain parts of the brain to give the feeling or sensation. The flow of the hormones could be induced if one did a good job of pretending happiness.

    Money alone does not necessary make one happy but one is unlikely to be happy in America without “sufficient” money depending on the individual. Don’t matter where you live bills are always on time in the US. Difficult to be happy in a cold house or cannot afford to pay for utilities. All the factors listed in the article to bring about happiness correlates with income. Health, leisure, good living condition, good homes and so forth.

    Health insurance, which we all need, is a profit making enterprise……..geared for those who have the money to afford it, or the young who usually don’t need it. There is a market place for all these things in material America, and we need money to buy them. In fact the ads on TV offer these things for sale but rarely tells the young how to sacrifice for a good profession so they could be able to afford them
