"All schoolchildren should have "happiness" lessons up to the age of 18 to combat growing levels of depression, according to a senior Government adviser.I suppose you have to be a professor at the LSE to come up with such a perfectly stupid idea. Can you think of anything more anti-educational, completely pointless and illiberal as compulsory lessons on how to be happy?
Pupils should study subjects such as how to manage feelings, attitudes to work and money, channelling negative emotions and even how to take a critical view of the media, said Lord Richard Layard, a Labour peer and professor of economics at the London School of Economics."
You won't catch me taking any goddam 'happiness classes'. If they're doing grumpy classes, on the other hand, I think I'd be prepared to give those a whirl. Now say after me class, "What the fuck are you doing to yourself?"
