Fairness: The quality or state of being fair.
Unfairness: Marked by injustice, partiality, or deception.

Subjective: Based on or influenced by personal feelings.
Objective: Not influenced by personal feelings.

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” – Plato. Now, so too is fairness. Hence, subjective.
Fairness is always vulnerable to perception.
