Happiness Index!

I would love to see some data in the gapminder included on the Happiness Index for each country!

  • I’m Happy
    Happiness comes from freedom and independence.
    Freedom of fear and hate.
    Freedom of dependence from increasingly complex, fragile, destructive and inaccessable systems.
    Freedom of borders between our cultures, religions, genders, ages, healths. welfare, origins, histories, ...
    Are we all free to feel and thrive towards a freedom from borders, bad feelings and unhelathy dependence?

    I think we have no freedom to choose this, as happiness is a compulsory goal.
    We are happy when we know that our lifes are possible and not in danger.

    Right now we qualify to be listed as an endangered species, since most of us would feel their survival being threatened in the wild.
    Happiness according to human nature?

    "You happy me happy" applies to the whole community of life.
    Our actions effect the rest of the global community. We can continue "doing bad" or we can continue doing good.
    Do we even have a choice?
