The Review of Love People, Not Pleasure (作业五)

The Review of Love People, Not Pleasure

Love People, Not Pleasure is adapted from the New York Times. The author of this article is Arthur C. Brooks, Who is an expert on the connections between culture, politics, and economic life.

The paper is mainly about contemporary life—happiness or unhappiness, and the author makes a thorough inquiry about the source of unhappiness and how to keep a happy life. At first, the writer cites the words of ABD AL-RAHMAN III, Who was an emir and caliph of Córdoba in 10th-century Spain. He was the supreme leader and had anything what he wanted—fame, riches and pleasure beyond imagination, but he didn’t feel happiness. It is the same to us. Then the writer analyzes why so many people feel unhappiness and the source of it—addicted to fame and wealthy. Next, the paper introduces another reason of unhappiness—lust, and gives two explanations about how it can be that these very things can give us unhappiness instead of happiness. At last, the author makes a summary that how to maintain an optimistic attitude towards life.

After reading, we know that the article is an adept and compelling view of the current world we live in, one which is rife with images of luxury and success; all broadcast and transmitted over a million channels of marketing. From aspirations of fame to social media, to the pursuit of money or any other dalliances that we can all be prone to chase, the author shares a complete and well-reasoned argument for a more spiritual life. In somehow, I strongly agree with what the writer says in the paper. Actually, we may be in the cycle of grasping and craving and we can’t get out it. We look for these things—material things, physical pleasures or favor among friends and strangers—to fill an inner emptiness. They may bring a brief satisfaction, but it never lasts, and it is never enough. The desire will become more and more, and the attendant pain will be also more and more.

We live in a society where is full of money, material, fame and temptation. Almost everyone pursues these. I believe that in life, happiness attained by success is differential, not absolute. That is, when you gain status, you become happier, and
