Great Perspective

March 4, 2009

Everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy!

I lifted this link from Cafe Hayek.  This video of comedian Louis CK on the Conan O’Brien show is funny and true.  He reminds us of how great we have it, yet it’s never good enough for this generation of “spoiled idiots.”

He marvels at flight: “You’re sitting in a chair in the sky!”  But this generation whines because the chair doesn’t tilt back enough. 

Watch it.  Then watch it again.  He nails it.  We take so much for granted.  I didn’t realize how much we took for granted until I started traveling to Mexico and saw that poverty means something completely different than what it means in the U.S. and just how far we’ve come in the last 100 – 200 years.
