True, western societies are much better off materially than they were 40 years ago, but why is there so much crime, vandalisim and graffiti? Why are divorce rates so high?

Why do studies in most developed countries show that people are becoming unhappier? - Richard Tomkins, 2003.
It's a good read, full of scientific studies but easy to understand through his examples.
