“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence.
In fact, it is considered by some as part of one of the most well-crafted, influential sentences in the history of the English language.
These three aspects are listed among the inseparable rights of man.
Despite this, as I suppose, it would perplex a visitor from Mars whether we human beings really want what we say we want – life, liberty, and happiness.
This is especially true if the Martian were to drop somewhere on our stock markets, and examines the behavior of investors, speculators, analysts, and fund managers.
He would no doubt question the intelligence of the planet’s inhabitants, and would wonder…
“Do these guys really want life, liberty, and happiness…the rights they have been wanting for ages? They seem to be hell-bent on destroying themselves through their foolish actions! Is this the way the entire humanity works? If yes, I must thank my stars for being a Martian and not a human!”
