Fair is Fair . . . Sometimes

I believe in the Golden Rule – The way I treat other people is exactly the way I will be treated by other people. If I treat everyone I meet with respect, honesty and fairness, I will receive respect, honesty and fair treatment from others . . . . But sometimes the world just isn’t fair . . . . Sometimes the rules I must live by are not fair . . . . If I treat everyone fairly, why must I respect rules that are clearly not fair? If the rules that I am told to follow are not fair, must I obey them? What will happen if I don’t? What will happen if I do? Johnny Long is a high school sports hero, tossing basketballs at the hoop better than any 1951 player around. He is headed for a sports career that will certainly bring him fame and fortune . . . . If he can live by rules that are clearly ‘not fair’. . . . But if he does not obey the unfair rules, he may find prosperity even more quickly! In 1951, much like today, college sports players do not share in the great wealth that a winning sports team can bring to a college . . . . . And betting on sports games was big business even long ago in 1951 . . . . . Is it fair that college sports stars cannot share in the money that their performances generate? Johnny Long has a father in a medical sanitarium, no mother, and a little brother to support, and no family wealth to help out. Money is tight . . . Very tight . . . And Johnny wants to not only support his little brother with nice things, but also has dreams of dating and marrying a beautiful young girl he met. If the rules were fair, his record-breaking sports abilities would provide the money that he thinks he needs . . . If the rules were fair . . . . But like many times in life, the rules are not ‘fair’ . . . What is the right thing to do when the rules are not fair? Which decision will lead to prosperity? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
