Wonderfest - Pleasure vs. Happiness: The Neuroscience & Sociology of Two Goods

The Declaration of Independence proclaims our right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," but not to the pursuit of pleasure.

What has caused the twin epidemics of these emotions' negative extremes: addiction (from too much pleasure) and depression (from too little happiness)?
