Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, delivered the commencement address at Smith College Sunday. I read it in passing out of curiosity and was so pleasantly surprised, that I had to re read it.
The reason why I was surprised is this: being a huge fan of American culture and history, there's one area of the american success story that does not sit well with me. Large corporations and how they have changed the way people view success. It might be somewhat hypocritical of me, because I indirectly benefit from their existence. It might just be the introvert creative in me, but I think that the «climbing the corporate ladder» version of success is the closest you can come to hell this side of our existence.
