The Ways of the Lord are Not Fair

Nehemia discusses Ezekiel 18 & 33. Why did the Israelites say, "The way of the Lord is unfair" (Ezekiel 33:17)? What did they mean by, "The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?" (Ezekiel 18:2). Are children punished for the sins of their fathers? Can a person be forgiven for a life of sin? How does the prophet Ezekiel explain the statement in the Ten Commandments about God "visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children" (Exodus 20:5)?
