"My mother's friend worked on cruise ships in the 50's and 60's. She said 1st-class passengers were the most unhappy people on board. Defoe nailed it. Crusoe's father told him the state best suited to human happiness was 'the Upper Station of Low Life' - free from misery and hardship endured by the poor but also free from pride and envy of the upper part of mankind."
