Arthur C. Brooks meets Angela Davis

Arthur C Brooks meets Angela Davis at Shiftschool


In times when everyone thinks they have the truth it’s finally time to listen again – on both sides of the supposed spectrum. What happens when we lump activism and the classic search for meaning together?  That’s why we let the symbolic figure of the Black Power movement and the New Left Angela Davis talk to the Happy Life Expert with a conservative heart Arthur C. Brooks

Arthur: “The more control you have over your life, the more responsible you feel for your own success – or failure.” 

Angela: “The idea of freedom is inspiring. But what does it mean? If you are free in a political sense but have no food, what’s that? The freedom to starve?”

Arthur: “The key to happiness is not being rich; it’s doing something arduous and creating something of value and then being able to reflect on the fruits of your labor.”

Angela: “I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change…I’m changing the things I cannot accept.”
