Humans seek dominance, as a societal and socially dependent species, humans must create an empire that encompasses one’s beliefs, dreams and visions of the perfect world. People will segregate themselves from the truth if they have to, if they do not want to see ugliness (qualities or characteristics that they dislike in certain forms) they must lock others away because they are simply not normal, simply not within accordance to society’s standards. Prejudice is within everyone, there is no equality, we as societal and instinctive yet logical and philosophical creatures are chained to judge one’s behavior, actions, beliefs, sexual preferences, physical appearance, religion, personality, race, species and etc. We will exterminate or lock or segregate anything that we will fear of, because it is a threat to ourself. We believe things because it is meaningful (being a power as a majority, giving us a hobby to do, raised differently) , it is meaningful to ourselves, our hate of others, other dislikes, our tastes, our preferences is what makes us us, the perception of us by others is important, and what we think of ourselves, as sentient and philosophical creatures is important.
Happiness could be when humans are able to express themselves and make themselves meaningful among others or are able to fulfill their human nature and than die off as said above.
Life is what you make it. If you look at it from a far distance, it could be said to be meaningless. It's meaning is ultimately what you decide it will be and if life is actually life or will you live on after it is believed that you are in the state of death is questionable. The meaning only exists if a consciousness interprets it.
