Is Fair, Enough?

Tuesday 5th August / posted by Chris Wheeldon

There’s much in life that doesn’t seem fair – and completely beyond our control or within our grasp to do anything about.

The treatment of people fleeing a brutal life and looking for a good one here. The killing of kids simply playing soccer in Gaza. The destruction of an aeroplane transporting innocent souls to faraway places to see people they love.

These events aren’t fair. Fairness – it’s an elusive concept that seems simple to strive for but difficult to achieve.

Human Rights Lawyer Julian Burnside has been thinking about fairness and will deliver a sermon On Fairness for The School of Life.
