Fairness is a social principle that we teach our children. “Treat people fairly,” we say. And we really mean it. The children will invariably learn that life is not fair despite of our desire to the contrary.
Take basketball for instance, taller is better; or fashion, beauty is preferred; how about wealth, more is desired. Life is not fair. So what is the point? You ask.
Just because life is not fair does not mean we need to acquiesce to it or make it worse. Heavens no. Take the life as it is and make the most of it. If you can bring some fairness to it by all means, do it.
