Is “happiness” the ultimate goal in life? I really don’t think it is. I think “peace” is the goal. You can be unhappy with your current choices or situation and still be at peace with it, knowing that things will change. They change in time on their own, or through your efforts. Do “happy” people grow, change, or revolt? Is that why governments attempt to make the people happy? Can there be peace in anger, frustration, or boredom?
