Be (mainstream) political, be happy?

Politics is associated with alot of things; change, corruption, power, debate, violence, protest, ballots, democracy, authoritarianism...but happiness?

According to this new research, being political is not only good for the polity of which you are part, but also good for you.

A major caveat though; activists whose political activities put them at personal risk of arrest, injury, or worse, do not seem to reap the 'happiness' dividend - read and find out why.
