This isn't meant to be a religious discussion, though any opinion is of course welcome.
I was just wondering what some other people make of the idea wherein someone could be set upon by suffering throughout their life, regardless of moral character and also things like effort, learning and revision of approach to success.
I'm also not particularly referring to the life of suffering in something like the Buddhist sense where 'life is suffering' and it is something which must be overcome by everyone. I'm trying to contemplate the kind of situation where regardless of effort there would be failure, disillusionment, detestation among one's fellows, and all of that lovely kind of stuff.
Does anyone have any takes on this idea?
