Fairness

with 5 comments

“It’s not fair that I have to spend eight hours a day at a job I hate just to survive!”

“It’s not fair that my job at McDonald’s doesn’t pay enough for me to afford a two bedroom apartment all by myself!”

“It’s not fair that the CEO of the company I work for is a millionaire when I only pull in $30,000 a year!”

These are all common complaints made by people who are demanding that the government give them free shit (which is a euphemism for demanding that the government take shit from other people to give to them). When I hear such complains, I can’t help by acknowledge that we live in an indifferent universe that hosts an unfathomable number of things that could kill any one of us in less than a heartbeat for no other reason than because we, entirely unaware of what the immediate future held, chose to occupy a very specific space at a very specific time.

Knowing this I find people who whine about things being unfair rather obtuse.
