Live or Die: The negative side of positive thinking

| »

What’s wrong with positive thinking? Nothing per se – until you believe that the only way to survive in the world is to Think Happy Thoughts, no matter what happens or how shitty your situation may really be. It’s delusional, it’s dangerous, and it’s the subject of this magnificent video.

As a small sidenote, I kinda wish we could’ve seen the full whiteboard by the end of it. But, no matter.

Remember, folks: Realism is always the right answer.
