Independence and activity

“People appear to live the happiest lives in free, democratic societies, and the strongest correlates of happiness are independence and activity. This may seem strange if one thinks of happiness as mere sensory pleasure or contentment, but it fits the view of happiness as a signal of human thriving.”
- Ruut Veenhoven, source
