Great read! My view would be that this state of denial/irrationality is because we're blinded by the need to engineer and measure solutions so that they can be fiscally sound. Well...until the economists/technocrats can calculate the externalities of unhappiness and lack of social well-being in a humane way...we will always come back to this impasse. Our policies and governance have been reduced to the non-human factors in order to be accountable. It's only logical that the outcomes they produce will negate the human perspective.
