Daily Question 6

Do you want the world to become a better fairer place? Then why do you accept that some people don’t have to follow the rules?

When we are speaking of fairness among people then the first issue seems to me to be that everyone has to follow the same set of rules. Of course that does leave the question of who will enforce the rules. And how do we be sure that the person or group enforcing the rules doesn’t favor one person, or group over another?

Fairness is difficult because no matter how hard we try to achieve it we cannot be perfectly fair. But if we wait for perfection or try to achieve perfection by destroying the current system that will certainly result in much more unfairness.
