Fairness is a quality most of us aspire to protect. There are many ways that a balance in life can be measured. It takes a fair amount of wisdom to make everything fair.
Much of our society is based on equality and fairness. Often the biggest complaint of the public against a public decision is when it's perceived to be unfair. Even people unaffected by a situation will go to the extreme to stand up for fairness.
I suppose that's fair. Is everyone happy?
Amos 5:24 (MSG)
24 Do you know what I want? I want justice—oceans of it. I want fairness—rivers of it. That's what I want. That's all I want.
