The problem isn’t that life is unfair; it’s your broken idea of fairness.

You may hate this. It may make you sick. Reality doesn’t care. You’re judged by what you have the ability to do, and the volume of people you can impact. If you don’t accept this, then the judgement of the world will seem very unfair indeed.

I tell my kids there are three rules to a happy life:

1. Your life is hard, so is everyone else's;
2. Your life isn't fair, neither is anyone else's; and
3. Nobody cares.

There are two subsidiary rules:

4. Quit your whining;
5. Don't be an a**hole.

Zero tolerance is the politics of the lazy. All it requires is that you do nothing and ban everything.
