If you ask me: Why is life so unfair? I will tell you simply to look to living nature to understand the nature of life. In all things, we must first be honest with ourselves. When a pack of hyenas ambushes its prey and starts eating the poor animal while it is still conscious, this is nature at work - and we recognize it as such. Nature is a striving for continued existence; and, in nature, one living creature’s existence comes at the expense of another’s.
