Would you vote yes to open borders?
I vote no. I feel that socially speaking, it would be very difficult to manage a world without borders. Going by the concept of a democratic nation, there has to be a hierarchical system to governing. Therefore there will be decentralised clusters of control. What could happen, then, as they get further away from HQ, they reform into different groups of people with different mindsets. Given that each place or region already has its own culture and history, I feel that it would be more comfortable and easier for individuals to identify with their existing national identities than the concept of simply belonging to the human race. :)

What is happiness?
As with many of us who posted in this thread, I agree that happiness is at once a choice to look at the positives, to be content, a state of being. Personally, I also view happiness as consciously hoping, believing and acting. To consciously hope, both for myself and for others; to see the beauty in all things and appreciate them, living or not. Then to believe in these and that I have the ability to effect change and to act on it. Of course, it is not possible to control some things but I believe that in small ways, we can affect them. After all, we are only about six handshakes away from everyone else :)
