Corporate Capitalism Versus Human happiness

Happiness, or at least the search for it, is a human right. It is in America anyway, where at birth the founding fathers boldly stated in the Declaration of Independence that, "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" are “unalienable rights”, given to all humanity by “the creator” and which government is duty bound to protect.
