You can't make people happy by law. If you said to a bunch of average people |
two hundred years ago "Would you be happy in a world where medical care is
widely available, houses are clean, the world's music and sights and foods
can be brought into your home at small cost, travelling even 100 miles is easy,
childbirth is generally not fatal to mother or child, you don't have to die of
dental abcesses and you don't have to do what the squire tells you" they'd think
you were talking about the New Jerusalem and say 'yes'.
