Rezension ǀ Was wäre ein selbstbestimmtes Leben? — der Freitag
Rezension Michael Pauens und Harald Welzers Schrift "Autonomie" verteidigt den Mut, sich seiner eigenen Autonomie zu bedienen [...] Zwischen derartigen Gewissensfragen erstreckt sich der Handlungsspielraum, um den es Michael Pauen und Harald Welzer in ihrem Buch "Autonomie. Eine Verteidigung" geht: Selbstbestimmung trotz Gefahr für das eigene Leben und das der Liebsten, innere Unabhängigkeit und Mündigkeit trotz der Gefahr der sozialen Isolation. Diese Erörterung ist so notwendig wie schwierig. Denn so notwendig und wertvoll Autonomie auf der einen Seite ist, so schwierig zu begreifen ist sie auf der anderen. Zwei Beispiele unter vielen: Handelt ein Veganer autonom? [...] Autonomie, so die Prämisse von und Pauen/Welzer, sei erstens eine Errungenschaft und zweites als solche stets wiederherzustellen. [!!!Autonomy im Rahmen der Gesellschaft!!!: Job, pay tax, shop, etc] //&! youtu.be/NKAevgGvqjw << also on delicious. &! youtu.be/csIW4W_DYX4 - Human Virtues!

Paris climate summit: UN negotiations 'need redesign' - BBC News
[ only bottom up works ... till the tide is big enough. same with health and fitness (which in part has to be about looking good/fit). self-esteem. ] The UN climate negotiations are heading for failure and need a major redesign if they are to succeed, scientists say. The pledges that individual countries are offering ahead of the Paris climate summit in December are too entrenched in self interest instead of being focussed on a common goal. The researchers say the science of cooperation is being ignored. Instead, they say the negotiations should focus on a common commitment on the global price of carbon. This means countries would agree on a uniform charge for carbon pollution, a scheme that would encourage polluters to reduce their emissions. The comments from researchers at the University of Cambridge, UK, University of Maryland, US, and University of Cologne, in Germany, are published in the journal Nature. //&! bbc.in/1jYOUtz

The more you pursue happiness, the faster it runs from you | Zach Stafford | Comment is free | The Guardian
Psychologist Iris Mauss at the University of California, Berkley found that the pursuit of happiness might just leave you worse off. “Wanting to be happy can make you less happy,” said Mauss in an interview with livescience.com. “If you explicitly and purposely focus on happiness, that appears to have a self-defeating quality.” [...] In her studies, participants who were not happy would begin blaming themselves for feeling sad. They thought it was an immediate flag for their failure, making these negative feelings even more counter-productive. The people who accepted these negative feelings as normal, however, were much happier in the long run. So, accepting your sadness could actually make you feel good. [...] For Darwin, emotions were very much tied to surviving, which requires more than just happiness. [...] Be open about how you’re feeling, don’t try to hide behind it or conceal it. // &! keeping a diary talking to and about yourself compassionately.

W. Keith Campbell: The Narcissism Epidemic - YouTube
Social Media = an instant in ones life. not ones life. but this disclosure isn't written in there. under pictures, videos, tweets. + Environment of status symbols, status anxiety, debt fueled (zombie) consumerism. Fast Fashion. Throwaway society. At large not being sustainable. Status quo. Living in the now. Binge Drinking. Keeping up with the John's. Millennials - everyone gets a trophy, even for participation. ... this environment creates a need to display being happy and successful and having everything in life. [...] abundance of digital gossip. whether its whatsapp/sms in own circle at large and in the tabloid [...] 'Narcissism predicts leaders, but not whether they are good or bad.'

YT is for entertainment, thus comes the painful compromise - optimizing content for pagieviews and KPI's. etc etc // YT Stars are not artists.

Facebook is bad for you: Get a life! | The Economist
>> People posting only the best things in their life. << The Economist reported in 2013 that people tend to grow more depressed the more time they spend on Facebook after volunteers in a University of Michigan study had their activities and emotions tracked by submitting reports about both five times every day for two weeks. The finding: people who spent more time on Facebook were more depressed than those who didn’t. “A volunteer’s sex had no influence on these findings; nor did the size of his (or her) social network, his stated motivation for using Facebook, his level of loneliness or depression or his self-esteem,” the Economist said in its report. “[Study organizers] Dr Kross and Dr Verduyn therefore conclude that, rather than enhancing well-being, Facebook undermines it.” ( source http://pando.com/2014/06/17/facebooks-slingshot-brings-some-authenticity-to-the-worlds-most-disingenuous-social-network/ )
