People think they are happy because society makes them feel that way. Because of lack of knowledge, society doesn't know any better. Also, society keeps people from feeling sadness buy burning people as soon as they die and keeping people from remembering attempts of suicide.
In the story most people in the society believe they are content and don't question much. Montag is originally like this but a girl named Clarisse opens his eyes to the troubles in the society. He and Clarisse are one of the only few who realize how awful their society is and have a hard time convincing others of this.
In society, people have tricked themselves into thinking they are happy because of government issued devices like television and Seashells. This causes society to think that entertainment is all they need to be merry and that books aren't necessary. Because books are the only things that contain knowledge of life, society also doesn't know about the disaster they are bringing on them.
In the society people are dehumanized by having no emotions or feelings. They are apathetic to important and devastating evens such as the war and death. The society dehumanizes them by taking away their basic human qualities.
