I was going to say cynicism as well.
Depression? Many who are depressed see no happiness anywhere.
The word that came to mind was "Philistine" but that's more like "uncultured" or "unable to appreciate culture". I also thought "blind" and a Margaret Cho quote:
“Just because you are blind and unable to see my beauty doesn't mean it does not exist.” :)
On my estimation that word would be"death". for there is no way a seeing person cannot visualize beauty in life every day.
The two that came to my mind were "jaded" or "disillusioned".
