Interesting pictures. I have less animosity for Putin than for Obama, as Obama is destroying my country, and Putin is more honest about getting rich at others expense. Anyway, I wanted to ask you an unrelated question. It seems as if much of our world economy is run on pretend games. In medicine, one can also become very rich selling illusions to people. I cannot do this and therefore haven’t become rich. How about in your field? Is there a role for selling fake happiness to people and are those who engage such better off financially?
Putin is a war criminal. He’s instigated Russian occupation and war with Ukraine that already claimed – officially – 2000 lives just on a Russian side.
Interesting topic, selling fake happiness to people.
I have a book of essays that’s called “Architecture of Happiness”; it touches on illusional one, too.
As to medicine and disillusionment of practitioners…I have just finished reading Summer House With Swimming Pool by Herman Koch. Try it and tell me your opinion
