Happiness is nothing but a mere construct by government and society at Large
Cartoons, tv shows, movies, advertisements, performers, and even customer service. What do all these things have in common? We're surrounded by these things all the time, and they all portray a sense artificial happiness.
Take advertisements for example. In almost every commercial you watch, you'll see people beautiful rich people surrounded by friends and family while everyone is smiling and happy as can possibly be. Even something as mundane as cereal commercial has people waking up with perfect hair and running down the stairs like they just drank 12 cups of coffee. When in reality, your hair is messed up and your tired as shit to even barely walk.
So why do companies do this? Why do they portray people so happy all the time? Well it's to control you. They know happiness is impossible to obtain, but they tell you that if you buy this product then you'll be just like the people in the commercial.
Needless to say, people fall for this. They buy into this idea of owning this cool thing that will bring them happiness, only to later realize that they're still not happy.
The government has implanted this idea in our brains that you need to be happy in life. That if you're not happy, then you're not normal. We see this taking place in customer service all the time. Customer service fucking sucks. Dealing with shitty customers and coworkers all day while getting paid and treated like shit. Yet you always have to put on a fake smile, because if you don't then society will punish you for it. Maybe a customer will complain, or maybe your boss will scold you and you'll be fired. How can anyone pretend to be happy working this kind of job?
People start to wonder, “what's wrong with me? Why can't I be happy like everyone else”. Not realizing that literally everyone else also has a mask on.
