Interesting “watchword” Muse. I wonder how their “happiness” compares with “the joy of the Lord”….? It seems their “world” is very “Orwellian”, in that whatever word they use, the opposite is the actual truth, so in this case “happiness” actually translates to be:

Did Ya Know? Happiness is the new watchword
Happiness, it is always interesting to discover what the newest watchword is for the globalist push for all nations to join in the long term sustainable green economy global transition, there’s even a UN drafted Covenant that would supersede nations’ constitutions that includes Happiness as an avenue to convincing leaders of communities and cities regions and counties of the wisdom of their proposals.

U.N.’s Day of Happiness strikes chord
[…]The day had a trending hashtag on twitter — #HappyDay — and its own website. DayofHappiness.net is led by Action for Happiness, an 80,000-member movement to promote happiness, and Cheers, a positivity and happiness app founded in Los Angeles.
“The U.N. declaring this day is punctuating a movement that’s been going on for a while,” says Farhad Mohit, founder of Cheers. “People are starting to question the way of measuring progress. More income doesn’t equate to more happiness – and it’s hard to argue with happiness, that’s not a bad goal.”
There was even a Hackathon for Happiness. The H(app)athon Project had people in New York, Indianapolis, San Francisco, Bogota, Tokyo, London and Oslo using the latest marketing technology to try and shift the world’s view of value away from gross domestic product.
“We want to create a personal happiness indicator that can teach people: You are worth more than money.” says John Havens, founder of the H(app)athon Project.
The International Day of Happiness was originally suggested by Bhutan, a country that uses the Gross National Happiness Index to evaluate their progress, rather than a gross domestic product (GDP) model.[…]

article from United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe
The UN and happiness
[…]Now why would the UN make a matter as private and subjective as happiness into a public and global one? And, why on 20 March? As with many a good fairy tale, the whole thing started with a king wanting the best for his country. In 1972 the king of Bhutan, a tiny and poor, yet happy Himalayan kingdom, grew tired of countries being measured by its gross domestic product solely, and coined the term Gross National Happiness (GNH).
Bhutan, a country with a very low GDP per capita, but ranked among the happiest nations in the world, then started efforts to put happiness on the global agenda. Last summer, the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted the resolution “Happiness: towards a holistic approach to development” http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=39084 , recognizing the pursuit of happiness as a universal aspiration embodying the spirit of the Millennium Development Goals.[…]
The UN and Happiness plan for we in the developed world is to mentally prepare us to embrace “a very low GDP per capita” such as “Bhutan, a tiny and poor, yet happy Himalayan kingdom”.
UN Agenda 21 wants an equally poor communitarian planet of nations going backward together into a “poor, yet happy” United Nations run world.

International Day of Happiness, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Gross National Happiness
The Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe – UNRIC provides information on UN activities to the countries of the region. It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information. Its outreach activities extend to all segments of society and joint campaigns, projects and events are organized with partners including the EU,
All of the above entities are being taken over from the peoples they represent by those who want UN Agenda 21 to level and standardize the all nations into an equality of poverty and dependence upon those few 0.000001% who have formulated this definition of “Happiness”.
Central banks and global corporations own the UN, they ARE the UN (just one example, remember the $10 billion dollars that Ted Turner donated to the UN?), and they are guilty of causing the lion’s share of, ” “The economic crisis, accelerating environmental degradation and growing discontent around the world” that is being blamed upon the 99.999999% of humanity who have been lead into this moment of growing global MISERY.
If the UN Agenda 21 achieves its “Happiness” goals there will be MISERY as never before experienced upon this world…..but………I cannot imagine that this insanity could ever be pulled off, yes, some of it has already been begun…….but really……….you can fool some of the people some of the time………..No, I think UN Agenda 21 will go down as another Utopian nightmare, it’s just too unnatural, never gonna stamp out life and light.
