Dear Paul, I'll bite and try listing items I might claim could bring 
extreme unhappiness to people.

1.  Inability to secure employment of any kind.
2.  Inability to provide food, clothing and shelter for one's family.

Once these basics have been offered to citizens, a glimmer of hope is 
given as well.  Yet this is what socialism manages to present to its 
citizens and at a basic level, a socialist form of government works.
Once something more than basics is required by a nation....that's when 
some states go down the toilet.
The ideal political structure for a state to adhere to is one in which 
the best of socialism merges with the best of capitalism.  Synthesizing 
a political venue shouldn't be thought of as impossible.   This 
synthesis could possibly relieve citizens of their extreme unhappiness.
