But happiness? Has anyone compared them to let’s say the Pygmies, the Mennonites, the Amish? I’m not saying one way or another, but I don’t see anyone asking about actual true personal values. Maybe they are miserable. But maybe they aren’t.

Feel sorry for those that have to live there when a few miles South, is a fully modern and prosperous country called Republic of South Korea.
