robomatic BS: time to change US flag (53* d) RE: BS: time to change US flag 30 Apr 21


Mr. Red:

I like your response, no need to grasp any more. But then we'd be in 'heaven' so presumably have no needs.

I loved that Browning quote because it's a simple way to distinguish between ideals and realities.

WV: I think that 'fairness' IS one of those ideals that must be distinguished from realities. I don't think we can agree on what is fair. Or, maybe more realistically, getting to something we can agree is fair will take more time and effort than is gained by putting it in force. After all, the 'law' isn't really fair. At it's best it is 'consistent'. And often when the cry of 'unfair' is raised, what it really means is a law or policy that it not enforced consistently. Which brings us back to regulations. So I endorse the last line of your previous post. And I think a definition of 'fair' comes from when regulations appear to be working, and the perception of fairness is obtained.
