” Researchers at the University of Michigan said Denmark’s prosperity, stability and democratic government placed the country at the top of the rankings, with Colombia, Canada, Puerto Rico and Iceland all in the top 10.
The United States — the world’s richest nation — ranked 16th among 97 countries, while Britain was placed 21st.”
As of 07/02/2008
First off, I’d like to congratulate the citizens of Denmark for being able to live happy lives. Now my next phase of action is to figure out WHY!
Ronald Inglehart, a political scientist at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research, stated
“I strongly suspect there is a strong correlation between peace and happiness”. I second Mr. Inglehart’s thesis with a big “yeahhh!”. I couldn’t imagine that there would be a stronger relationship between happiness and horrible war & famine, lol.
So, my task is set to do some more research on Denmark, and see if Un World can dig up any additional data. Wish me luck on this one.
What would I do?
How would I take steps to ensure the rest of the world feels such a high level of happiness? Well, first we’d start off with two crucial keys: 1) Peace and 2) Economics. Each and every member of society would need to have opportunity to achieve economically. Not the bullshyt “U.S. version of opportunity” that statistically marginalizes your quality of life based on Zip Code and the Income of your parents. But ACTUAL opportunity granted to all people, regardless of who their parents are, where they grew up, what race they are, or what their sexual preference is. This would instantly knock out a shyt load of hatred & violence.
