The law of equity demands the abandonment of fairness under the law, and substitutes equal duty as well as equal rights, in order to achieve liberty and prosperity.
“The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment, by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.” – Justice Louis Brandeis, Olmstead Vs. The United States 1928
Fairness by definition denies equity.
The only guarantee under a pure Democracy, is the tyranny of the majority, under the banner of fairness.
