The World happiness map has just been published. No it’s not the deranged output of some new aged fluffy bunny attempt to induce a world wide appreciation of tree hugging (although the deep red areas are generally linked to the NAFB), nor does it anticipate the return in 2012 of Quetzalcoat the feathered serpent God of the Maya to create a harmonic planetary civilisation. No this comes from the University of Leicester based on UNESCO and other data. Several things come to mind on reading it – the main one being happy at whose expense. Come to think if it, it may be the return of Quetzalcoat: the Mayans were into blood sacrifice big time and the Aztec Emperor Moctezuma II initially believed the landing of Hernán Cortés in 1519 to be Quetzalcoatl’s return so maybe that is a warning to us all.
