Would We Be Happier As Germans?

Tom Geoghegan argues that most Americans would actually be happier under German style social democracy.  I tend to agree, as the post below suggests.  He makes this case in his new book, Were You Born on the Wrong Continent? and on his blog. 

Although, I am not sure if "happier" is the right work--perhaps "fulfilled" would be better.  I went hiking with Andreas Weigend not long ago, and we agreed that if it had been raining, it would have been much more fulfilling in a uniquely German sense.
