Is Switzerland really better than South Africa then?

From a lot of what I've read on this forum it seems that many people are not ecstatic about living in Switzerland, IF they are not really well off?

A lot of South Africans (I mention S Africans because I am one) and other people too- say things like, SO WHAT IF
  • A nice piece of meat is almost unaffordable
  • One needs to stay in a tiny apartment in a high rise block
  • Even good quality fruit and vegies are unaffordable
  • The weather is not all that
  • We cannot afford to eat out at a restaurant
  • You have to do your washing in a communal area
Who cares about the above, because we have:
  • Stunning scenery
  • You can ride your bike around
  • You are SAFE to walk around at night
  • The schools are great
  • Insert any other positive things about Switzerland
Yes it's all about choices, but it's damn difficult. What is life without the first series of points mentioned?
