Are you happy?

Guess what. Denmark is the happiest country in the world, according to the latest World Values Survey published by the United States National Science Foundation.

The annual study surveyed people in 97 countrie and asked people two simple questions about their happiness and their level of satisfaction with life. The research indicates prosperity is linked with happiness. It does contribute but it is not the most important factor. Personal freedom is even more important, and it's freedom in all kinds of ways. Political freedom, like with democracy and freedom of choice. So as gender equality is also an indicator of happiness, as is rising social tolerance

It is a thing to ponder upon for our nation.
