Instant Gratification

 "I feel like in America, our happiness levels are much harder to get to because we are used to instant gratification all the time." I agree very strongly with this, and believe that rather than thinking about the human race as a whole, I often think about Americans and their relationship to evolution, and their ability to feel happy. I find myself wondering about antidepressants, and chemical relationships in the brain and everyones constant desire to "fix" something that must be wrong because we can never be satisfied and happy! Is one of the reasons that Thassa makes us so frustrated is because she is focused on the present like is said above? I'm not sure...
