A Take on "Social Justice"
The term "social justice" is being used widely these days to define what is "the right thing to do" across the world. One mainly hears this from the liberal or progressive side of the political arena. It is also widely being promoted in our churches. But, what does it mean really?
Well, a look up definition is:
"Social justice is the idea of creating a society or institution that is based on the principles of equality and solidarity, that understands and values human rights, and that recognizes the dignity of every human being."
This sounds wonderful on the surface - hard to argue with. However, its connotation in today's politics (world and local) means something quite different. It embodies the concepts of an "Open Society" / "Open World" and a major redistribution of wealth and resources - by legislative dictate and/or force. It sees individual nations as roadblocks to achieve these ends and stresses that the outcome of everyone's efforts should be equal - not just that everyone has the right to pursue their desires.
The United Nations (UN) is a staunch proponent of social justice as defined by today's political standards. It would truly like to see a "borderless" world with centralized finances and a centralized government for all mankind. And, trust me "You Would Not Be In Charge!" (look up George Soros, the Bilderberg group, and the like).
From the United Nations' paper, "Social Justice in an Open World: The Role of the United Nations", we find this gem (Read the below quote twice to make sure you "get it"):
"Present-day believers in an absolute truth identified with virtue and justice are neither willing nor desirable companions for the defenders of social justice."
(see page 2 of the document for the above quote - a link to the document is found at the bottom of this offering.)
Further, the document stresses that "redistribution policies" are an absolute necessity to achieve the UN's vision of social justice:
"Social justice is not possible without strong and coherent redistributive policies conceived and implemented by public agencies. A fair, efficient and progressive
taxation system, alluded to in Commitment 9 of the Copenhagen Declaration on Social
Development,4 allows a State to perform its duties, including providing national
security, financing infrastructure and public services such as education, health care and social security, and offering protection and support to those who are temporarily
or permanently in need."
(see page 6 of the document for the above quote)
Be extremely careful with today's social justice. Make certain of the definition and intended implementation of any "social justice" you support - do thorough research before "buyin in" to anything! The freedom and liberty of us all are at stake.
