Does happiness come from what we are given or from what we give?

Happiness comes from what you earn and/or achieve.

If anyone gives you something of value grab it with both hands and be immensely happy.

The point Ben Carson is trying to make is that people will be happy to donate but upset to receive.

So, the logical interpretation of this dogma is that to increase your own feeling of happiness you're prepared to risk making the recipient of your selfish-generosity unhappy.

Then why do very rich people have a disproportionate suicide rate?

In other words, it's the extremes of either poverty or wealth that are associated with higher suicide rates.

Because most rich people are Nihilists. Soon enough, the rich Nihilists will kill the poor Nihilists or enslave them. That's you. What did you think Communism was being used for "burrito"? To make YOUR life better? Or THEIRS?
