In my previous article on “Social Justice”, I began to expose the “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.” I am referring to noble sounding, but ill-conceived, government initiatives that insidiously displace individual rights and freedoms with collectivist goals. This can be expected as evidenced by the fact the insignia for the Fabian Socialists is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Certainly, everyone wants “justice”. Our Pledge of Allegiance ends with the words “with liberty and justice for all.” However, the mischief begins when the word “SOCIAL” is inserted in front of the word “JUSTICE”.
America was founded on the concept of liberty and justice for each and every individual, and our declaration begins with the premise that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
Although we are created equal, there are no guarantees of equal economic outcomes under our free enterprise form of economy and government. Find a country where everyone is economically “equal”, and I’ll show you a government where nobody has any freedom.
The Social Justice movement works from the basic premise that global free-market capitalism is “unsustainable” and is the source of all evil because it does not lead to equal outcomes.
I know what you’re thinking–“whoa commissioner, you had me until then… but it sounds a little over the top to me.” You want evidence.
Okay, let’s start with the various definitions of social justice that seek a form of egalitarianism, i.e. equal, outcomes for all.
Next, we have Mr. Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America. Transform into what?
Have you ever seen the Common Core Transformative Matrix? Of course, you should be asking the question… transform our students from what into what? Well, it looks somewhat like a four leaf clover. The topmost leaf has the destination.
Want to know what it says? I’ll give you some hints. It doesn’t say “God”. It doesn’t say “The Constitution.” It doesn’t say, “America.”
It says “Global Citizen.”
So what’s a Global Citizen? It is a euphemism for ‘godless government-state citizen’ that places the collective above liberty, above free-enterprise, and above God. It targets vulnerable children who do not yet subscribe to the principles of individual liberty and unalienable God-given rights.
Don’t laugh. It’s happening as we speak. I know as a fact that an exercise called the “Privilege Walk” is being taught throughout our colleges, and within local public schools. Students are lined-up side by side and asked a series of 25 race-baiting and subtle but anti-Judeo/Christian questions that go something like this:
If you are a white male, take one step forward.
If schools are closed during holidays that align with your religion, step forward.
If you are a minority, take a step backward.
If your parents do not have a college degree, take a step backward.
In the rotting carcass of failed progressive-left federal education doctrine, class envy, anti-white bias, and anti-achievement exercises are presented as a means of promoting Social Justice. In reality, the Privilege walk is little more than a classic anti-white male, anti-capitalist exercise, designed to evoke negative emotions against those who have enjoyed individual success. As Obama said, “If you own a business, you didn’t build that.” If you own a successful business, you should bend the knee and pay homage to the collective and your government.
It is classic Marxist class warfare… subtle but effective.
Ayn Rand, author of Atlas Shrugged, perfectly indicts this mentality: “The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those that deny individual rights cannot claim to be defender of minorities.” Yet, that is exactly what the Social justice movement does. It strips individuals of self-identity and treats them as members of a victim-class. This is called “Identity Politics.”
If you’re lucky enough to belong to a group that is in political vogue with politicians, you may reap government benefits, or even a college admission.
If you belong to the wrong group, which usually consists of either Caucasian males, or business owners, you’re in trouble. Supporters of free-market capitalism are “unsustainable.”
So go ahead… take the Privilege Walk, and feel guilty.
