Is it because we are afraid that we wouldn't really be happy? If so, we might
question whether we ought to think of happiness as simply feeling pleasure or
being satisfied with our life. Perhaps it requires more than how we experience life
. On the other hand, maybe we are willing to grant that the machine would, in fact,
make us happy, yet we still wouldn't want to live that kind of life. If this is the case,
we are assuming that there is more to a good life than being happy. Nozick
claims that ...

must do well enough to make life well worth living. And most of all, it requires
acting reasonably well. A good life is a life well-lived, and well worth living.
Prospects for a good life There is a happy moral to this account of the good life:
the good life is not hard to get. The well-being side of the equation, after all, is
very undemanding. Even the average Charlie Brown, for whom things rarely go
well, can still have a life well worth living. Most of the time, life is awash in small
pleasures: ...

22 According to Consequentialism, the moral value of an individual action is
determined by the amount of good it produces; that of a life as a whole then by
the aggregate (net) of the values of the actions performed during it. Mother

So when I say “good enough” about my watch, and the rest of my family's very

very much living the good life. Our “good enough” lives are very good indeed. To
spend a single second bemoaning that my watch is not a Rolex would be simply
absurd. Economists tell us not to let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

greater equality) is a future generation B in which the same number of people
exist as in A+ and all ...
