Many terms cannot be conveyed in English and the concept of Schadenfreude, now, if not a household word in English, is widely used in the English speaking world.
However the CONCEPT of Schadenfreude is misunderstood by all but those who have been raised in Germany, who do know precisely what this term means.
English speaking people who are are not familiar with German culture who have been told that Schadenfreude simply means deriving pleasure from the misfortunes of others are mistaken.
The concept of Schadenfreude is much more focused and precise than this. NOT that Germans or those familiar with German culture who may or may not speak German but who have lived in Germany or in some German community will know what the REAL meaning of this word is.
NOT that the notion or pleasure of Schadenfreude is only something that German's feel. NO NO NO...any one from any culture living anywhere no matter what language they speak it is possible and does enjoy what I shall clue you all into what Schadenfreude is all about.
This episode deals with the real concept of Schaenfreude that some people not many but some find most likely by accident that fills them with great pleasure as it gradually grabs hold of them.
Fascinationg and as i said NOT unique whatsoever to the German mentality...it is universal...stick around, the topic for this show just might intrique you and shows a darker side of some people's personality. Very dark indeed.

“This is one of the best books that I have ever read on any emotion, but envy especially. . . . Gressel covers a remarkable range of scholarly work on envy, from religious treatments, tough psychoanalytic ideas, to contemporary experimental work in social psychology. He weaves his consistently innovative analysis of these perspectives with well-chosen interviews with people who speak frankly about their experiences with envy. These interviews, as well as candid accounts of his own struggles with envy, help keep Gressel’s analysis grounded in the everyday world.”
—Richard Smith, author of The Joy of Pain: Schadenfreude and the Dark Side of Human Nature, professor of psychology, University of Kentucky
Envy is a universal emotion, yet people are very reluctant to confess their envy of another. In Embracing Envy, Josh Gressel suggests it is our shame at admitting we feel inferior to another person that keeps envy so hidden. Through interviews with everyday people, reviews of mainstream psychological research, and lessons from wisdom literature, this book delves into how envy can be seen as meaningful and useful in our daily lives.
A few days ago I was talking a women I know about our children returning from university for the summer. Our daughter is finishing her thesis but I thought it polite to ask if her son had found a summer job. Oh, she said, he's working for the (town unnamed) Golf and Country Club. It's VERY exclusive. Imagine that; very exclusive.
I realized I'm not polite- because my first impulse was to think she must be pulling my leg. But her expression revealed she was completely, competitively serious. Graham you wouldn't think that way if you were a member! Wrong oh wrong. That shite was edcuated out of me when I was a boy; when I had the opportunity to be well schooled. Did you know, some people feel a deep need to display their wealth? The germans called it schadenfreude- pleasure derived from other persons discomfort. I know we have to dumb it down quite a bit to grasp this process. The ethos of the capitalist experiment of exploitation is one of ambition and goal directed accumulation of wealth. Modern work is not without criticism but it can be said, before the industrial revolution life was dire for more of us. Having a reliable source of drinking water and food is better than dying. Yet millions are dying while a fewe live lavish lifestyles. I'm not saying wealth isn't without purpose but it's out of control. Bragging about the exclusivity of life and displaying wealth is just tasteless. There was a time in ancient Rome when hurbis- arrogance, self-importance, egotism- was outlawed. The world wide occupy movement voicing concerns about the gap between haves and have nots is today showing us what comes when we tolerate it. It might be an odd version of meritocracy but exclusive? If freemasonry was exclusive would it be of philosophy and ideas or wealth?

Dean Roberts - I was born in 1939 got kicked out of school at age 16 Was given an early discharge for the Navy in 20 got married at 22 and had two children within three years. Some time in my late 20s I started to read and study Marcus Aurelius book meditations and think and grow Rich by Napoleon hill When my parents retired from the family steel rule die business in 1976 we were doing around $100,000 a year in sales. By 1981 my company had become the largest manufacturer of diecut dollhouse kits in the world we were doing about $4 billion in sales with over 40 employees. I had the good fortune to attract some really great people that took full responsibility for all the day-to-day operations. This enabled me to travel study meditate exercise and play way too much tournament poker. So now in the final stage of my life I would like to share with younger people some of the useful things that I've learned over the years. My daughter son and grandson are operating the business today it's Greenleafdollhouses.com

In a week that saw more outbreaks of domestic terrorism, school shootings, continued faux outrage at the Bergdahl release -- a ray of political good cheer: Eric Cantor lost his primary bid for re-election. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills are no fans of David Brat, the Tea Party free-market economics professor who defeated Cantor... but they can't help enjoying a small moment of schadenfreude over this development in this week's political discussion from the progressive point of view.
