That the Danes consider themselves a comparatively happy people is unfortunately also a reflection of the fact that the population is unaware of the extent of intelligence radiofrequency surveillance. European commentators in the know agree that everything bound up with intelligence surveillance is particularly black in Denmark.
The American people, for example, is much more aware of - and healthily protesting against - the deep impact of homeland security on the ordinary American citizen tending, I suppose, for that reason among others to rate themselves as less happy than the Danes.
