To be fair
Viewing the photos and videos from Facebook has got me thinking.
If one day we become the benefited, will we turn up like today for a better democracy?
Are we the same people driving madly on roads and put other people's life at risk?
There are always things in life that are unfair to us and to others.
When we're born to be the benefited, we often take the advantages made to us for granted.
And for things that hurt us, we rebel, protest, we ask for a change.
When we say "we want a better future", how many of us sincerely put other's happiness beyond ours, or are we simply mean "I want a better future"?
And how many of us actually willing to sacrifice our happiness in order to make the world a better place?
In the biological world, competition for the limited resource is a law.
We can't be better without making someone else worse.
We often admire Heroes that save the mankind, but human politics don't work the ideal way.
Leaders can't win support without first punishing enemies into a worse state.
Just like most heroes in movie that smash building and cause serious car crash before they win the final battle and save the world, justice sometime comes with great cost, and the injustice for the victims is often neglected.
Rules that seemed to make humanity better are always flawed in some points and might not be better than yesterday's rules.
Communism leads to low productivity, capitalism leads to inequality, monarchy system makes incompetent leader, democracy makes cronyism.
Laws, like computer programs, are subjected to attack.
There must be people that exploit the loopholes.
When laws improve, the hackers move forward.
And when laws get sophisticated, ordinary people are the one suffered most, because under the law that no ordinary people can understand, the smart exploiter can easily camouflage himself, thus undetected.
Fairness has seemed to be a subjective term.
We all born with different principles and priorities in life.
It's hard for us to all agree on the same set of rules.
Tolerance is what we have for things that're unfair.
Politician becomes the master of tolerance controller.
They try to find the optimum point.
Sometime, they remain good for a longtime and sometime, like today, all hell breaks loose.
There is only one thing that I truly believe in -- that's the education.
Only when we become smarter, we become less vulnerable to the exploitation of our leaders.
