But as I mentioned, "fair" is by its very nature unpleasant. You can never "win" in a fair scenario. Fair is when everyone loses.

Laws are created to try to generate fairness, flawed as they were. Because if you think absence of law is fair, you haven't been to a lawless land.
Law being unfair doesn't necessarily mean no law = fair. And I have lived in a (nearly) lawless country in the Pacific Islands for 2 years. I can tell you from my experience that the lack of law in no way makes the country a bad place to live.

If laws do not benefit the majority of the people in a democratic society i'd say by democracies very premise that those laws are unfair yet still just.
