    If we quit the harmful silly INVALID happiness, we can easily have a happier, just, ecologically sustainable society and stop materialism and corporate greed.

    Wrong?

      Since you ask....I do not think/feel that you are "wrong". and I think I understand your message. It does feel, however that you are pushing your idea of "INVALID happiness" to the point of feeling like "spam" on the TED sites. I am aware that you have certain criteria for what is valid or invalid in a person's life. We cannot judge for another person what is "valid happiness" or "invalid happiness". There are some very good talks on TED addressing happiness....what that is and how to achieve it. It might be helpful for you to incorporate your idea with some well established ideas regarding happiness.
