Do you think that all failures are fair and justified?

No.  Not all failures are fair.  Sometimes we can fail through no real fault of our own, simply by bad luck.

Look at sports, for example.  There are any number of ways to fail in a sporting event that are not your fault.  You can step on a wet patch on the basketball court and slip or a sudden gust of wind can come up and knock your golf ball into the water short of its target.

Even in the "real world" the same type of thing can happen.  You can go to an interview and it can just so happen that one of your interviewers is in a bad mood and does not like you even though you do well in the interview from an objective point of view.

Because these kinds of random things can occur, not all of our failures are fair.
