  • Smile or Die by Barbara Ehrenreich

    A beautifully acerbic take on the compulsory positivity that has overtaken American and, indeed Global, society over the last decades. Ehrenreich investigates the history of the phenomenon and the Stalinist way in which we are expected to police our negative feelings at every opportunity. Here is a wonderful RSA animate short of Ehrenreich explaining the book from youtube.
