Social justice is not justice--it is a dogma that divides society into identity groups and foments division, anger, and desire for vengeance.

Unfortunately, social justice has permeated America; and as it turns out, it is not a philosophy that appeals to the better angels of our nature. In practice, social justice is outright disdainful of the blind, unbiased justice toward which Western civilization has striven since its very beginning. Social justice advocates would argue that blind justice is a utopian objective, a myth clung to by naïve children.

The social justice creed is shaping our every daily interaction. It influences how businesses structure themselves. It is altering how employers and employees interrelate. It has utterly transformed academia. It is remaking our politics with alarming swiftness. And there are consequences for those who transgress against the tenets of social justice and the self-appointed inquisitors who enforce its maxims.

In Unjust , Commentary Magazine associate editor Noah Rothman deconstructs today's out-of-control social justice movement and illustrates the lasting damage it has had on America's politics, culture, education system, and future.

This sounds to be an interesting read - - - opposite of my opinion of every Evergreen College grad I've ever met - - they appear universally incapable of holding a coherent adult-level conversation or discourse.
I am reminded by a slew of recent stories [which I consider most obscene] on NPR, ABC and CBS, suggesting sympathy for ISIS, and inferring that ISIS mothers should be allowed to return to their countries of origin so they may have their ISIS babies, including one mother whose two previous children died - - of malnourishment the the talking head claimed, when it was obvious they died because of their sociopathic and irresponsible ISIS mother!
One supposes these non-news stations have the so-called right to report this, since it was Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation [FOX] which successfully litigated at the federal court level for the // right \\ to fictionalize the news and fire any employee who did not go along with them.
[The days of evil ones slaying innocents, then propagating all over the landscape should be over!]
