I believe a correct view of karma must incorporate the idea of
randomness.  I believe the correlation between acts and consequences
approaches 0 in the short run and 1 in the long run.  When people say
that life isn't fair, they're expressing the truth of the lack of such
correlation in the short run.  Wisdom is essentially keeping one's
eyes on the long run.
