Are there means for making the Jews happy and more useful in America?

Historian Albert S. Lindemann writes in Esau’s Tears: Modern Anti-Semitism and the Rise of the Jews:

A decade before the Revolution, the Metz Society of Arts and Sciences had offered a prize for the best essay on the question, “Are there means for making the Jews happy and more useful in France?”

What brave soul would offer a prize for such an essay today in America? Even as hyper-useful and as hyper-happy as we are today, surely Jews can be even more happy and more useful in America?

Chaim Amalek: “Jews are not here to be happy, but to do mitzvas. The best place for a Jew in gallus to be a Jew and do mitzvos is inside the Torah Corral, suitably policed by guard dogs (goyim on horseback). The goyim should pay yidden to sit and learn all day inside the Torah Corral, with the rule that Yidden would never be free to leave and would be fed by the goyim for their protective work learning and praying.”
