    and anyway, the happiest, most fabulous place has to be Gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the Coral Sea Islands - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    It is enslavement of the willing though, they accept their role and even enjoy it, and I would dare say generally rather happy with their position(s?).

    Different priorities, culture, even racial make up can have an effect.

    Hell, we have people here that have made an entire industry out of stirring up feelings of perpetual unhappiness and oppression where none would exist otherwise.

    Anyone who tries to sell you something has a vested interest in making you feel unsatisfied with some aspect of your life. Generally, I see nothing at all wrong with this--like I said, it promotes improvement. But then there are those who constantly rehash and push things like class and racial division; this has become a problem, IMO. Most of these are politicians, in fact, but others as well.
