Or, how to 'long tail' a phone conversation you're eavesdropping on but can't hang up the receiver because they'd hear the click and find out.
Podcast of the April 24th 2010 show, "The World on a String".
This Week on A Translation of WireTap with host Jonathan Goldstein - is happiness all in our heads?
In a place where all our needs are satisfied, has happiness become unachievable? With no essential struggle now necessary for life or liberty is the pursuit of happiness now just an existential game? Are the prisons of our minds the only prisons that really matter?
What of the oppressed amongst us? Is our happiness also offering a helping hand to those stuck in boxes of their own making?
What of those who will not free themselves? Is freedom from unhappiness a responsibility to imprison those who will not free themselves? Perhaps torture... Should we torture those who will not be free, until they admit they are happy?
Or perhaps happiness is the freedom to choose a life path - and it's consequences.
