What we measure, matters. So why not measure happiness? If everyone is striving for it, and the point of life is to have a measure of happiness, why does it get lost in the shuffle? Imagine if one of the key indicators each night on the news was the Gross National Happiness. How might that change things?
Did you know that our property is supposed to revert to the state after our death? Our Founding Fathers deliberately designed property to be “on loan” in order to prevent a royal class, or a class of the ultra-wealthy. Imagine how different we might live our lives if we considered ownership temporary.
