It was poorly worded. This analogy is closer.

Like temperature in a large public building. The correct temperature is the one that makes equal complaints of too hot and too cold.
I agree that is a better analogy, however is there a reason that the cold cannot be given blankets and the too warm be given cooler clothing? Everyones happiness is still achievable.

You will then find people who hate the blankets, and or hate dressing with less. When you get enough people together anything you think of will post of someone.
It is the difference between living life from a glass half empty or glass half full perspective. You always receive whatever your expectations permit. Positive expectations 👌🏻
There is always a way for everyone’s needs to be satisfied. Assuming everyone can be happy is far for effective/beneficial than assuming everyone’s unhappiness.

Diminishing unhappiness is a better goal then increasing everyone's happiness, even though they sound the same they are not.

Like how science works by disproving instead of proving.
What you just said has a Glass half full/Glass half empty perspective.
The positive perspective alternative will always achieve a better result for everyone if it is what’s desired.

Since what is desired is varied then increasing happiness for one will sometimes decrease happiness for another.

That said happiness shouldn't be the highest standard anyway.
Fair enough although there is usually a means to create happiness for all. As with the room too cold/too hot situation. Cold gets warmer clothes/hot get cooler clothing. Everyone happy

Doesn't work in a public building. People wont want your handout clothes, or like being told what to wear.
Glass half empty perspective 😉
It is just as easy to assume that the cold will be grateful for the warmer clothes/heat and the hot will be grateful for the cooler clothing/AC

We are talking about public buildings in real life. We dont hand out clothes and tell people how to dress when they go to the mall.

This is how public buildings are actually managed.
