Here’s another video to getting you thinking – this time about the tyranny of positive thinking. Funnily enough, Barbara Ehrenreich – journalist, author and political activist – brings up the subject of a book called The Secret, which someone was onto me about only a few weeks ago – all rather scary and sick to be frank.
Mandatory optimism and cheerfulness drive me crazy so I’m delighted to have found this video and share it with you. I for one am tired of feeling I have to be positive all the time. I’m fed up with people expecting me to be up, positive and ridiculously happy on a constant basis.
Think about it, there is no better way of controlling dissent than blaming people for not having the right attitude, not being positive, not looking at the brighter side of life, it is a form of social control – you’re a failure if you look at everything negatively, if you’re unemployed, depressed, etc .
So free yourself of delusional positivity and get real
You can check out Barbara Ehrenreichs book, How Positive Thinking Fooled America and the World for much more on the tyranny of the positive thinkers
