What do you hear little children say all the time – “it’s not fair”. But we thought that you were not supposed to grow up and learn that life is not fair – nor is it meant to be!
I hear Democrats, President Obama and others using versions of this phrase on almost a daily basis now.
Not wanting to go into all the individual points this phrase is used for I want to just deal with the concept of “what is fair”.
When I have children the phrase “That’s not fair!” will be anathema in my house. It will carry a far worse punishment than any four letter word uttered in my house.
Maybe if we trained our children to stop expecting “fairness” we could actually raise a generation of effective politicians.
