Fair; not just

The issue is justice. Try this thought experiment.

Three people meet at a restaurant. Two of them are hungry and decide to get something to eat. They have their meal; time to pay the bill. They decide that the third person should contribute equally to pay for lunch. She objects, but the other two manage to get her purse and extract the money for her “fair share”. Does this seem just to you? This is how government works.
