When confronted with the cry “But that’s not fair!” some reply “who said life has to be fair?” For a comeback to that, try
“Who said unfairness must be tolerated just because it exists?”
As a human being, with the ability to think of “future” and the ability to learn from the past, the concept of “fairness” and my application of that concept is what differentiates me from the bare-bones reactive universe.
“The whole point of society is to be less unforgiving than nature.”
