Not Woke Anymore

Post by Col Hogan »

A women’s studies PhD has been faking it for over almost two decades as she realized that Critical Social Justice ideology is destroying American society...

I’m sad to say it, but I believe that Critical Social Justice ideology—if not beaten in the war of ideas—will destroy the liberal foundation of American society. By liberal I mean principles including, but not limited to, constitutional republican government, equality under the law, due process, a commitment to reason and science, individual liberty, and freedom—of speech, of the press, and of religion. Because Critical Social Justice ideology is now the dominant paradigm in American academia, it has flowed into all other major societal institutions, the media, and even corporations. Far from being counter-cultural, Critical Social Justice ideology is now the cultural mainstream. A diverse spectrum of liberals, libertarians, conservatives, and all others who, to put it bluntly, want the American constitution to continue to serve as the basis for our society have to team up to prevent this ideology from destroying our country.

Exactly. It's why she writes under a psuedonym.

Social Justice means different things to different people.

This is what I think of as Social Justice, someone going after people because they look different or have different beliefs. Luckily this guy was convicted.

I've only done informal studies of women. But I'm sure I came up with the same conclusion. They're all fucking nuts. :coffee:

FWIW, when I was on our church parish council we had a social justice committee. They were in charge of charity work. I like that definition.

How would you describe the way the word "justice" is used there?
Charity work has nothing to do with rights or law, at least not without stretching things pretty far.

OK. But that is probably a minority definition of the word, especially when based on a minority definition of the word just.

I'm not sure your point. Gil said different people had different definitions and I gave an example of one.

I basically took my wife’s African American Studies class for her, researching and writing all the papers without ever attending a lecture. She got a B.

Meh. I just think that term, in that particular case, is not the best match for what is being done. It's not incorrect. It's just that it is using a minority definition of the word.

Kind of like "Football". :lol:

Doing the worker of a social worker, basically fits the definition of a social justice action. Caring for others.

Social justice must be founded on care for others, pope tells judges
