Ode to Joy

We sometimes wish we had a magic wand we could wave over our head and make everyone around us happy. Unfortunately, such a device does not exist. Not even Jesus had such a luxury. Notice how he died forsaken even by his closest friends. Our "culture of consumer happiness" is an illusion and will soon be exposed as such. Once we get over the shock we may move on a to a more appropriate human aspiration: Joy.
