Day 128 (positive project) Costa Rica Happiness


Here in Costa Rica, they don’t have a military. (I was going to stop writing there, as that’s really all the info you need, however…..) The United States has a military that costs $1.4 trillion a year. Costa Rica is one of the happiest nations on the planet. Speaking to a local, he says he is free, liberated, because of there being no army.
If every country needed no army we would surely be in heaven.

Here is a great Ted talk on the happy planet index by Nic Marks
