Has America turned into a capitalist hell-hole?

It seems to me, most Americans care more about

money and "progress" than about being happy.  

Is that true? I understand we have to work to  

contribute to society; but I already have a  

hard-time working more than 30 hours/week.  

How anyone can work 40 to 50 hours/week after

driving through heavy-traffic is beyond me.   

What kind of life is that?!? I find that disturbing.  

Are there any countries that

don't put money above people?

    Yes, society's values today are more materialistically based.Geared for comfort through flash advertising and propaganda about security.Empires come and go.

    Capitalism is fine unless it's the unregulated capitalism, which we have now.

    That is destroying our nation and our Constitution.

    If you save and make good investments you can retire in your 40s or earlier.

    Or get a career you actually like doing instead.

    If you don't like working at all then your life will be miserable even if you work 30 hours a week for the rest of your life instead of 40. But everyone has to make money since everyone has to go out there and try to provide for themselves; just like a person has to work to survive in the wild.

    There are numerous ones. And like the US ,they are all protected by the US military, as they will not take on the burden themselves. 

    Everyone is happy, and everything is wonderful................until it isn't.
