Today we start out discussing a new Pew poll that shows, contra Chuck Schumer and others, American Jews overwhelmingly approve of Israel and its efforts to defeat Hamas since Oct. 7. We then get into the latest World Happiness Report, which finds the U.S. ranking below the 20 most happy countries for the first time in the report’s history. What’s behind our recent unhappiness and why are Americans under 30 most unhappy of all? Give a listen.

    Teachers/professors: “OK, students, today we’re going to learn all about how you live in an irredeemably racist country, that is a force of evil around the world, and if you are white, you are racist scum, and if you deny that you are racist scum, it’s proof that you’re racist scum, whereas if you’re a racial minority or female, the deck is irrevocably stacked against you and you have zero chance in this society; next, we’ll discuss how if you feel the slightest bit awkward about your sexuality, it means you were born in the wrong body and should surgically transition; and finally we’ll talk about how the planet is getting so hot everyone will be burned alive by 2100. Oh, by the way, after the lessons, please take a moment to fill out this survey from Canadian sociologists wanting to measure your level of happiness.”
