Have You Found Happiness Online?

Have you found happiness?

It's a simple question.


You, who have toiled and struggled to bring your dreams into this online world. Are you not the bearer of your own achievements? The champion of your own successes?

Your online dreams - they are yours and yours alone. They have not come to be simply through force of wanting. You've ushered them into this connected world through your own efforts - your own strengths have made them a reality.

Of course, that is not what "they" will say.

Your enemies will seek to discredit you. They'll look for cracks in your foundations into which they'll run roughshod, tossing seeds of doubt into every perceived crevice in the hopes that they may someday blossom into a garden of your undoing.

These seeds will find no purchase, for it is YOU that will rise; YOU who will stand strong.

And who have you to thank for your successes?

Not DreamHost. Surely not! DreamHost is simply a passage through which the vessel of your own ingenuity has sailed.

Should you thank the government? Surely not! The government plays no part in your innovations. Their role begins and ends at steeling the front door to your own brilliance.

YOU and you alone are the reason for your success. Cat sweaters are exactly that - cat sweaters - and nothing more. You have identified the market need with many late nights of research. You have knitted the sweaters with your own two calloused hands. You have built the online store in which to sell these sweaters and your bank account has prospered.

You now benefit from the inventions of your own mind, the products of your own hands, and the fruits of your own toil.

And so I ask again.

Have you found happiness?

If the answer is yes, then all is as it should be.

If the answer is no, then all is as it should be.

If this is confusing, don't worry. I don't really understand Objectivism, either.
