Justice is about the individual. Social Justice is only about Group Justice where YOU are held responsible for anyone else that the Left believes to be in “your group.” Ben Shapiro nails this, and a LOT of things tied to it, in this short 3-minute video.
“Social justice…is an actual evil. … Add ‘social’ in front [‘justice’], and you’re inherently saying injustice is better than justice. … If you’re a member of a group, then you must pay the price for something that you didn’t do. Social justice suggests…I’m responsible for paying slavery reparations…even though all of my ancestors were busy getting killed by Cossacks in Russia at the time that slavery was taking place. And less than 5%…of white Americans alive today had ancestors who ever held slaves. Every white person in America, though, has to pay because of group justice. How is that just? It’s not. But it’s group justice. It’s social justice.”
Think Critical Race Theory as being the prime example of this – their claim that anyone that is White is automatically a Racist and an Oppressor REGARDLESS of what you have done in your life. We saw the genesis of this when Obama said this:
…that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country. Unfortunately, I think that recognition requires that we make sacrifices and this country has not always been willing to make the sacrifices that are necessary to bring about a new day and a new age.”
Remember, Obama went to Harvard Law while this evilness was being cooked up by his Marxists Professors and fellow sojourner classmates. This certainly has NOTHING to do with individual guilt or orthodox Christian theology. Even Alinsky, of whom Obama was a disciple, was a “group” Marxist as well.
Just as Shapiro said – the repudiation of the Western Classic Liberal notion of the Individual and regressing back to the Marxist Collectivist demand. Now you know where Obama stands – as well as all of his retreads running the Biden Administration (and answering Steve’s evergreen WRBA question).
And if you listen to what is now coming out of the White House again during this Obama third term and the emboldened Democrats in Congress + the new political appointees steering the Deep State, you should quickly realize that Trump was VERY correct when he said:
Afterthought: Now, juxtapose what Shapiro said versus what Florida University is doing. Change the culture, change the politics?
