Mexicans Are Now Happier Than Americans

The World Happiness report finds that Mexicans are happier than Americans:

How can this be possible?

It might have something to do with the fact that social mobility is much lower in the U.S. than in many other developed countries, and that modern Americans have no more social mobility than in medieval England.

Or that inequality in America today is twice as bad as in ancient Rome, worse than it was in apartheid South Africa, Tsarist Russia, Gilded Age America, modern Egypt, Tunisia or Yemen, many banana republics in Latin America, and worse than experienced by slaves in 1774 colonial America.   Indeed, economist and inequality expert Thomas Piketty notes that – for those who work for a living – the level of inequality in the U.S. is “probably higher than in any other society at any time in the past, anywhere in the world ….”

Or that Americans .

Or that we’re the most spied on people in world history.

Or that we’ve lost virtually every right guaranteed to us in our Constitution.

Or that our politicians are so insanely corrupt75% to 79% of Americans say there is widespread corruption – that most Americans that neither party represents their interests, and 3 times as many Americans supported King George of England during the Revolutionary War as support our OWN Congress today.

    If Americans will not stand up for their right to not be ripped off, lied to, shot by police, sent to fight wars based on lies, cheated, poorly paid while overworked, spied on, taxed illegally, imprisoned for non crimes and sometimes the evidence used is fraudulent but he prison system is now a for profit system. Treated by a medical system that kills hundreds of thousands a year, murder in regular english, not told about actual cures for disease in the name of money, and on and on and on, then they have no reason to expect to be happy. In fact if you will not fight, you no reason to expect o live in this environment. We have a system that is more violent toward Americans than it is to our supposed enemies.
    Owning guns and bullets will not make you free. Being willing to fight for your freedom even if it means you may die, that will help secure freedom. Punks are never free.
    Americans are more enslaved now than anyone has ever been, but they are too dumb to know it, and if they do know it they are too afraid to do anything about it.
    So it is no surprise everyone is happier than Americans. If you want to be free and happy do not count on the police to arrest the corrupt puss in your gov, or your banks, the police are there to protect these folks. It is not a saying it is the truth. You must secure your own freedom.
    I keep hearing people call themselves patriots, but since nothing is being done to stop this rampant corruption on every single level, I wonder what that word means in the new speak.
    When Germany occupied other nations there were resistance fighters who made their life harder every day. Many died. They did not give up. In America we have nothing. And make no mistake we are occupied. Most of your so called reps have sworn to put Israel first, a foreign nation comes before you, and you do not matter at all, can’t you tell.
    You will never be free until you effect your escape from this Oligarchical Prison. Enjoy your sadness and pat yourself on the fact because you have allowed yourself to be fucked so hard it should be in the book of world records.

      Correct! That is how Europe got rid of the Nazis – they called it resistance. America only did what it does cowardly now – it bombed civilians.

    America is a slave station.

    Who we choose as our heroes tells us who we are. Amer cans want to be slaves. Their heroes are military orders Obeyers.

    I would not mention the elephant in this room since I wish to keep posting. It is obvious why, when speaking of Mexicans and Americans, Americans are so unhappy.
