“‘Happiness’ in Context”

hedonism: Word of the Day from Dictionary.com http://www.dictionary.com/wordoftheday/2017/05/28

“Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness”. Requires Work. Happiness doesn’t mean the “reckless debauchery” that the word Hedonism implies today. Always figured Happiness as envisioned by the Founders during the Age of Reason required Work and a sense of Responsibility, for the sake of Balance. IMHO.
