I Don’t Think This Is Right

Again, I don’t think this is right.

I could be wrong.

But I’ve always understood “happiness” as it appears in the Declaration to be poorly translated Greek for “flourishing”– as in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of a Good Life where one achieves one’s potential and stuff.

And I assumed the Framers, especially Jefferson, understood ‘happiness’ this way.

I’m going to look into this.
