“It is a fact that people are happier in social democracies. It is a fact that people are richer, wealthier, closer, live longer, saner, better lives, in nearly every regard.”

Not to get to political here, Umair, but everyone but the Republicans and the greedy fat cats that they shill for and the gullible that they exploit have figured that one out. But keep on writing your wisdom, and very slowly it may begin to seep into the minds of those silly people that vote against their own best interest simply because they can’t get passed their own primitive tribal impulses — fear of the “other.”
