It’s interesting to think about current “self-help” trends. So often the “help” is framed within capitalist standards:

How do you make yourself better?

By becoming “happier.”

How do you become happier?

By buying more things. (like the self-help book!)

How do you buy more things?

You make more money.

How you make more money?

The wheel could turn forever. But the emphasis is the person being a part of an economic process. But what is happiness? And does it actually aid in a more meaningful life?
