Recently on the Matador Network, an article was posted about four different ways to measure standard of living.

Today, the members of our non profit group, the Order of Mercy, held a neighborhood street clean up as we have done several times in the past two years.

We also met some members of a spiritual group who had just moved in and were giving a concert this evening. It was wonderful to meet people who care about keeping our streets clean, safe and loved (we live on the edge of a notoriously… Continue

According to an article on theage.com, New Zealand was awarded top place because of its low violence rate, decreased military spending, low homicide rate, and high level of respect for human rights. As for the Scandinavian nations, I have read multiple articles that claim Jante Law is largely, or, at least, partially, repsonsible for their… Continue
