Ever considered optimism as a political act? Jess Lundie borrows this concept from Worldchanging’s Alex Steffen, and creates a guest post at Openly Balanced around the idea that the kind of optimism embodied in life at places like Dancing Rabbit is radical in this day and age.
Optimism? Radical? Jess looks at some of the major sources of contemporary unhappiness, and notes that very act of joining in community these days often flies in the face of contemporary culture… and that’s a big part of the declining life satisfaction experienced in some parts of the developed world.
A very thought-provoking post… thank you, Jess!
Feeling optimistic yourself? Why not act on it, and help the folks at Dancing Rabbit with their mission to teach others about community based in shared values, and hope for the future… make your pledge or donation.
