What are some examples of unfairness in "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson?
1. The idea that the town carries on the lottery for no other reason than tradition is unfair. If someone is going to sacrifice his/her life supposedly for the town's sake, there should at least be a significant reason for doing so--not simply because it's always been done.
2. Tessie's death is, of course, unfair. It is completely random, and she has done nothing to deserve the "sentence" of death.
