What makes you happy, 4Taba?
Serious question actually: what things really get your mood up and give you energy to face each day?
Furthermore, where do you think happiness in life lies?

It goes beyond that stuff. It's not that there are problems, it's that there are obvious things in everyone's life that make them miserable and they don't acknowledge it.
Take the workforce for example. Does anyone actually believe that a 40hr workweek was some magic number that some geniuses in a think tank came up with to create the perfect balance of life, progress, and work? Does anyone actually believe that number just so happens to optimize practically every single job out there?
No. It really might as well have been a number chosen at random. Our society stabilized itself around that number, but it could have easily been 30, or 20.
In fact, I would even argue that some lower numbers would create more progress. Especially scientific and cultural progress.
Another way to put it is, we are still living in a survival-based system. The game of life is literally just a survival game. Despite all our technology and advances we're really not that far removed from our hunter-gatherer ancestors (and believe it or fucking not they actually worked LESS than the average person today does). You stop working you die.
The dreams of the average human being go no further than survival-based dreams and instincts. It's just boring, tedious, and sad.
Almost nothing in this world is even actually built to make you happy. That's only the secondary motive, with the primary motive being money, which is just more survival shit. That includes movies, shows, and even music to some extent.
