"the merriment of those whom men call happy is feigned, while their sadness is heavy and festering, and all the heavier because they may not meanwhile display their grief, but must act the part of happiness in the midst of sorrows that eat out their very hearts"

- Seneca, Letters 80.6

All paths seem to lead to emptiness. Enjoy the wisdom and humility in your post.

A very solid proof that concerns about a "filter bubble"-effect is wildly exaggerated is the fact that my stream here on G+ is smack full of news about Apple every single day. I would be so happy if I never heard a word about Apple again

It just means that info about apple is within your bubble... Unless you get a lot of celebrity news and Christian inspirational quotes too?

I was unfamiliar, +David G, with the term "identity politics". But now that I have found its definition I would suggest that you are being too gracious to Clinton supporters. Identity politics is why they do get it, and they certainly want it to stay that way. As an added incentive, +Laurice Mccoy, the media is still, it seems to me, dismissive of Sanders; nearly every commentary and pundit on the mainstream infers that in the end Clinton will dominate, and as the old Booker T. Jones song reminds us "Everybody Loves a Winner". Fear often prevents people from making a decision they know to be right.

"Do you ask what is the foundation of a sound mind? It is, not to find joy in useless things. I said that it was the foundation; it is really the pinnacle. We have reached the heights if we know what it is that we find joy in and if we have not placed our happiness in the control of externals. The man who is goaded ahead by hope of anything, though it be within reach, though it be easy of access, and though his ambitions have never played him false, is troubled and unsure of himself. Above all, my dear Lucilius, make this your business: learn how to feel joy"

- Seneca, Letters 23.1-3

Interesting!
 
The Independent goes "digital-only".
The Independent is to become the first national newspaper title to move to a digital-only future, owners ESI Media have announced. The move will capitalise on The Independent’s position as the fastest growing UK quality newspaper website, and will ensure a sustainable and profitable future.

"The much admired Republic of Zeno …is aimed at this one main point, that our household arrangements should not be based on cities or parishes, each one marked out by its own legal system, but we should regard all men as our fellow-citizens and local residents, and there should be one way of life and order, like that of a herd grazing together and nurtured by a common law. Zeno wrote this, picturing as it were a dream or image of a philosopher’s well-regulated society".

Plutarch, On the fortune of Alexander 329A–B (SVF 1.262, part) (Long & Sedley 67 A)

Introduction
Trained as a philosopher. Live with my two kids, Sikker and Kirstine, in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

I'm particularly interested in:

- Theories about happiness, wisdom and the good life - first and foremost the ancient Greek and Roman eudamonistic tradition as we know it from the writings of Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics.

- Human beings as social/political animals

- How we understand the life we live through the stories we tell

- Philosophical counseling

Apart from my philosophical interests, I'm interested in technology as a user who is very particular about his tools. Because of this, I occasionally write about Android phones and tablets and Chrome OS, Google+ and Blogger

Lots of delicious stuff in very lovely surroundings - but extremely expensive! 45 DKK for one very small cup of chai? And 35 DKK for a cookie? I think not. Not recommended because of the prizes
