Why More is Less


Psychology of Excellence

Everywhere in the modern world, it seems, more younger adults than older adults report having ever been disabled by this new great (emotional) depression . . . Young people today have grown up with much more affluence, slightly less overall happiness, and much greater risk of depression, not to mention triple suicide . . . Never has a culture experienced such physical comfort combined with such psychological misery. (David Myers, The American Paradox: Spiritual Hunger in an Age of Plenty, New Haven, CT Yale University Press, 2000, 138, emphasis added)
