To "Karma" or not to "Karma"

I'm a bit of a fatalist. I often think that life and the world itself is divinely "rigged", so to speak.

However, I don't subscribe to the notion that "whatever you mete out shall be meted out back to you in equal measure".
I don't think reality is quite that regimented in nature.

Frankly I think if God wants to "do you in" or "let you have it" He just will.
That it has nothing to do with whether-or-not you "did anything to deserve any kind of wrath"
---you can be perfectly innocent, but if it's "your time" you could, for instance, be walking down the street just minding your own business and still be shot on the street randomly for no reason
...or you might get involved in a minor altercation and end up getting arrested for a mere verbal insult or even just "looking at someone wrong".

But if it's a period when God's "favoring" you, you'll be reaping benefits without even having to make the slightest effort to "earn" them
---that if it's "not your time (yet)" you could probably (just about) commit murder or rape even and STILL get away with it.

I really believe that what you receive in life and what you put out is not always so proportional.
How else could one explain all the inequitableness of this world?
