"The ingredients of happiness come pretty cheap."
What makes us happy? I mean, truly, genuinely blissful. A three part video series by PhilosophicalMedia explores the philosophy of Epicurus, a Greek philosopher who spent his life's work trying to find out what humans need to be happy. Surprise: It's not money.
Sit back and enjoy this well-produced three-part series on happiness, humanness and Epicurus:
Social injustice is a complicated topic, to put it lightly. It's definition, even, is widely debated. In fact, some people don't even believe that it exists.
As simply as I can put it, social injustice is when all people within a community are not treated the same, all other factors being equal. Social injustice is when the cute, bubbly, blonde girl gets a warning for speeding when the Latino man going the same speed gets fined.
Some would argue that social injustice is overblown. Many believe that all men are created equal, therefore they are all treated equally, and that with tough tugs of bootstraps, anyone can overcome anything they set their mind to.
I know this is a sensitive subject. But, what are your thoughts on social injustice? Can you cite any examples of what you consider social injustice in your own community? How do you define it? Do you agree that social injustice exists in this society, or do you disagree?
