Why would he say that? Getting metaphysical, is fair a zero-sum game? If I get fairness in life, does someone else get less? Why would getting less fairness be a good thing? If there is entropy in the world of fairness, then like action-reaction, something else changes in the universe to compensate for my receiving fairness. What are the criteria or are there any? Is it just luck, chance? Oh well. C'est la vie.
