well it's more of an "intent" question.... you can't ever really achieve full fairness.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Uniformity. Freedom and Fairness are both Red Herrings. Freedom is worthless when it allows people to act in an inappropriate manner and Fairness is contrary to every bit of the natural world. Only Uniformity is a useful system for maintainance of society.
Freedom and Fairness are not muturally exclusive, and fairness is impossible to actual quantify and define. No answer.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Honestly the two can be the same thing. Without fairness there can be no true freedom. If there was no minimum wage fairness, discrimination law fairness, a right to work in fair and healthly conditions fairness, and if there was no way to the pusuit of happiness fairness there is no freedom you are just a slave to labor to barely survive in tyranny.
"Rome is the mob. Conjure magic for them and they’ll be distracted. Take away their freedom and still they’ll roar. The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the senate, it’s the sand of the coliseum. He’ll bring them death – and they will love him for it.” - Senator Gracchus (Gladiator)
These kinds of dichotomies aren't practical. What's the point of freedom if it isn't fair? What's the point in fairness if you're not free? You may as well choose between food or water.
I as I stated before, I don't think you can have one without the other. That's has a lot to do with the way I interpret each word, I'm sure. But, looking at it from a different aspect, you could ask: Are we discussing freedom of opportunity, or fairness of results? Those two are not necessarily the same as the other.
