In the past few months, I have realized one thing your happiness is not good for a Capitalistic Economy. Or should I say your satisfaction is dangerous for the Capitalistic Economy?

And to be more precise, happiness, in my view, is nothing but complete, total, and absolute satisfaction with what you have, where you are, who you are, and how you do things. It’s only when you are not satisfied (consciously or subconsciously) that you seek happiness in the external world. And I shouldn’t say this probably but ‘what the hell is happening in this generation? People are learning to be happy from a random YouTube video?”

This topic can itself turn into a book but let me tell you a few of my observations about happiness, dumbness, and the capitalist economy:

  • The entire system is designed very carefully to make you and me DUMB. Because only when we lose our power over ourselves, do we seek to find the solution to every problem in the external world. And don’t you think this is exactly what’s happening? Right from how to be happy to how to wake up early, people are finding every solution online. Which shows that you don’t consult anything with yourself. You don’t have that self-awareness and self-relationship to take your decisions yourself.

And this is where the money for the system builders is. By making you dumb and your brain handicapped, they make you dependent on them for everything.

  • If you are completely satisfied with your life as in what you have, and what you look like then you wouldn’t be buying the solutions to those problems. For example; If you are completely satisfied with how you look then you wouldn’t be buying the latest antiwrinkle cream or lipsticks that can make your lips look like fresh strawberries.

In simple words, this capitalistic economy first manipulates you into believing that there is something wrong with you and then tells “whoop, we have a solution” Then? Well, you work your entire life to buy the solution to a problem that you never had in the very first place.

And if that wasn’t enough, the growing use of social media platforms has introduced us to the lives of everyone, people we don’t know sh*t about…
