Unfair feedback loops

one set of societal problems that i feel is often overlooked, especially by the political right, comes in a form i like to call unfair feedback loops. this is any situation where an originally fair interaction produces (often as a side-effect) conditions that augment its ability to happen again beyond fairness.

there are many examples:

the common element between these situations is that further interactions could still happen to a "fair" amount, but they gain a bonus from having happened in the past, which makes their reoccurence more likely/numerous than is justifiable.
