We have a box of chocolate raisins in the house, courtesy of The Six and Lu (aka Grandma and Papa), and occasionally there is one that is huge. The kids simply love the huge raisins, and to maintain peace in the house, I have to make sure that if one gets a huge raisin, so does the other.
Okay, fine, doesn’t that actually prove socialism? Doesn’t that show the inherent need for “fair”? No, what it shows is that human nature is such that if a person doesn’t get what that person deems to be fair that they will throw a hissy fit and pout cause they didn’t get a big raisin, and they didn’t know they wanted a big raisin till she got a big raising, and now I want a big raisin, damn it! What it shows is that human nature is variable, that fair is inconsistent and that, if given the opportunity, people will totally scam both big raisins for themselves.
Humans aren’t fair. Claiming that a social, economic and political paradigm that depends on fair to work will ever be effective is like saying that pooping candy is a great idea so I think I’ll start doing that from now on.
There is no such thing as fair, and I won't be pooping skittles anytime soon.
You're welcome for that particular mental image.
