  • OK I am better now. If life were fair everyone would have the exact same prent (experience) and school (experience) etc, the same opportunities , the same quality of health and you can go on. It is simply not fair. All you have to do is look at your neighborhood.
    The guy down the street drinks too much but passes out on the couch, the next one has a mother who locks her kid in the closet so she can take a nap, The next one is a decent family who loves thier 8 children and both parents work very hard to provide, the next family lets her two kids run all over the neighborhood while she is screwing the neighbor down the street, the next one is a SAHM with her 2 kids and loving and decent family, the next guy beats his wife at least 2xs a week and the police have been their several times.

    Can you honestly say that it is fair for the children on that street?
    We are born different. We have differnt "luck" etc

  • i have to agree with dardenella. the way that my instructor try to persuade me to change my mind was by saying that we are all dealt the same situations, and it all depends on how we handle them..

  • No, life isn't fair. It can't be. There has to be a balance. Where there is good, there is bad, happy/sad, life/death. Without that balance, without the challenges that life brings there can be no progress, no growth.

  • Fuck no. Have you ever lived a single day of life? Does anybody on the earth think life is fair? I doubt it.
