Fairness is Unfairness

Fairness is Unfairness

We witness the quotidian injustice: calamity befalls good guys, incarcerated heroes, lazy men continue to win, good men were killed in wars.

We continue to uphold this misguided existential belief that people will get what they deserve at the end. Everything is destined to fall into place. Good guys will end up happy and bad guys will fall into an abyss. Except that, this utopian ideology never happens.

What seems fair to you could be unfair to others. The world is not unfair or fair. It is just as it is.

It is vividly disturbing, but don’t expect fairness in every situation, for the vast universe itself is full of randomness.
