Precious Nonsense from the WEF 'Experts'
But, but - they're experts! You HAVE to trust them!
Wonderful news! The James Bond villains over at the World Economic Forum have declared you don’t need to live a happy or meaningful life. And if you think otherwise, well, here’s some edu-muh-catin’ for ya. As life gets tough in times of austerity and tyranny, we all need to keep “expanding our views of what makes life worth living”. See, what you really need is:
Hm, yeah, psychological richness. Just like mama said.
Wait, what are they talking about? Apparently psychological richness is:
A psychologically rich life is one characterized by 'interesting experiences in which novelty and/or complexity are accompanied by profound changes in perspective'.
Ahh, I see. So I guess we have to welcome with open arms the rapid cultural changes they’re pushing, such as mealworm diets, “cozy” homes with “less open spaces”, smartphones implanted in our bodies by 2030, and the brain chips, which are totally going to cure depression. Yeah, sure.
Judging by the image they chose for this article it looks like we are expected to see eating bugs as the equivalent to the uncomfortable and rewarding challenge of climbing a mountain.
Cool. I always wanted to live out Fear Factor every day but without any chance of prize money. It’s not like I’d want to eat bugs for some meaningful purpose that could make me happy after all.
Remember, “psychologists” say it. So don’t ask questions.
