"Fair" Versus "I Win"

Repeating something from my Guide to the WSFS Business Meeting that is critically important to me:

Remember that “fair” doesn’t always mean “I get what I personally wanted.” It’s a deliberative assembly run in a democratic manner. That means that sometimes you don’t win, but it does mean that you and everyone else has to play by the same rules.
