ANN ALTHOUSE: WOMEN ARE unhappier than ever. Despite all those choices:
Oh, how I loathe this liberal meme about choice and happiness! Though liberals believe fondly in “the right to choose,” they also love to say that choice makes us sad — but they only seem to mean that choice in the economic sphere is bad. (Notice how it softens you up to accept the crappy car the government wants you to drive and the good-for-everybody health care system it would like to provide.)
Anyway, why are women so sad? I think it’s because we think about our feelings so much and care so much about being happy.
Nothing is worse for happiness than a cultivated sense of entitlement.
