When I ask my friends if they feel happy, 9 out of 10 say no. When I ask them the reason, the answers are always the same: Someone does not have a car, and he thinks that when he buys it, he will be happy, but he does not understand that he is needed in this car because of advertising. I will ask another, he is not happy for a similar reason - he is NOT rich, but he wants to become one, he does not have a poor family, and he never goes hungry, he has a mother and father, he has a free education, and so on.
I will ask a third friend, and he will answer that he does not have a girlfriend, he is often sad about this, he does not realize that a person does not need someone or something to be happy here and now. Modern people are just victims of good marketing
