The power of mandatory optimism vs the power of realism and collective action… what do you think? #ehrenreich #collective #mandatoryoptimism

I love this cleverly animated video narrated by author and political activist Barbara Ehrenreich entitled “Smile or Die”… in it she talks about how ‘mandatory optimism’ in the corporate and political worlds has lead to delusional thinking and ultimately to the recent undoing of our economies.  Ehrenreich, rather, advocates for ‘realistic’ thinking and the ‘power of the collective’ to solve world issues.  What do you think?
