A history of happiness explains why capitalism makes us feel empty inside written by Sean Illing is a short transcript between him and Carl Cederström. They talk about happiness and how society promotes “a culture of extreme individualism and extreme competitiveness and extreme isolation” with capitalism. I was intrigued to read this article because of how relevant the contents are, because they talk about the society that WE live in. The human condition that this article addresses is is emotion obviously because it is about happiness. I enjoyed the rich vocabulary in this article because it forces you to be a little more engaged to understand its contents. This article is connected to pretty much every capitalist country and is definitely worth a read because of the insight it gives into your own life that you may not have realized yourself.
