The world is becoming a happier place, a study published in this month's Perspectives of Psychological Science shows.
Data from national surveys conducted between 1981 and 2006, which were collated by researchers at the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research, showed that happiness was on the rise in 40 out of 52 countries.
University of Michigan political scientist Ronald Inglehart, the lead author of the study, said the upswell in happiness came as a surprise to researchers.

Bilderbergers / Central Bankers to MSM:
"Tell our sheep and cattle that everything is fine, and they are living in a "Happy Place"...
The Economic situation is fine...
The Food situation is fine...
The world is at peace and free of tyranny...
"You all be good little sheep and keep serving us."

The illusion of happiness is most sought out during times of personal crisis, or perhaps driven by bad news on a local, national or international level.
A false sense of happiness is also self generated oblivion.
In these times perhaps most people are quite 'happy' to remain oblivious to the reality that humanity is approaching a time of war, economic collapse, global warming, dwindling energy sources and food supplies.
Some people will find a way to be happy to the end!
