The "happiness" in BNW comes at the expense of meaning or depth of feeling. They operate on disposable pleasures that have no link with suffering or pain. A world with another value would probably be skewed with a different set of problems. There would still be no balance and that in itself is the problems. Humans operate on a wide variety of emotions. The pleasure and the pain, the sacred and profane are what makes up our psyche. Disturbingly todays society mirrors many of the points in BNW.
