Video: Barbara Ehrenreich "Smile or Die"

One of my fave writers, Barbara Ehrenreich, narrates this RSA* video as an unnamed cartoonist draws. She talks about the pitfalls of positive thinking. This relates to her 2009 book BRIGHT-SIDED: HOW POSITIVE THINKING IS UNDERMINING AMERICA.

The video is part of the RSAnimate series.

*The RSA: an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges. Through its ideas, research and 27,000-strong Fellowship it seeks to understand and enhance human capability so we can close the gap between today’s reality and people’s hopes for a better world.
