The north american lifestyle is just crap

It's almost like some unseen but intelligent force is weighing you down, smothering your attention with trivial obligations. To keep you from focusing. Focusing on something so immensely important, but for which you just can't form the words....
It's that moment of recognition when you realize that you are in a dream, RIGHT NOW, and that there's something terribly important you are supposed to remember when you wake up.... but you cannot quite remember...
Like, if you let it, it will keep you from ever attending to the things that really matter in life. Like you'll hurry up and spin your little hamster wheel until you drop, without ever really getting the chance to complete your mission, your true calling....

At least the movie stereotype we get is of people chilling with a big sombrero and a bottle of tequila.
Or perhaps people rushing across the border at night to pick vegetables - repetitive but salt of the earth work.
Why not move to Mexico?
Apparently Latin America is known for much poverty, but a high rate of happiness.
It just seems that so many people want to get to North America.
I just wonder why that is if it's all so bad?
I don't see masses of North American refugees fleeing to other countries.
So how can it be so bad?
