It appears Humanism has been co-opted by Social Justice, will it work?

Personally I'm perturbed. Every time I see SocJus make a fool of itself publicly once more, something else happens that shows it's spreading further.

Humanism is to my recollection the first attempt for FemSocJus to try to really assimilate a whole new label, though I could be wrong. They've usually been pretty attached to feminism and will denounce other labels as extensions of patriarchy or capitalism or whatever else, i. e pure evil.

But will it work? Humanism is going to be attractive to a lot of people because it's so broad and inclusive, but will the average person buy the snake oil this new Humanism is selling or will they arrive and realise that they just wandered into the psyche ward?

  • The problem with social justice is it naturally gravitates towards equality of outcome rather than equality of opportunity. When this occurs 'justice' can only be achieved by doing injustice to someone.

    • No. I'm not sure where you're getting "spiritual belief" from. Not that it excludes spiritual beliefs.

    • Well, I learned about it in my religion class so clearly someone else thought it was a spiritual belief.

  • Well, like I've said its a cult. Once the gay male ran fashion industry took on feminism in the 70's they made sure to incorporate themselves in anything from then on out , brainwashing women to believe they are our friends. Have you noticed the stupid people have been the loudest for the last 5 years.

  • The SJW's seem to suffer from ego deficits or are burdened by guilt and becoming the knight on the white horse makes them feel better. Unfortunately, they didn't take riding lessons and they have something backwards: it is the HORSE who should be wearing the blinders, not the RIDER!

  • Social Justice is the prevailing buzzword for Socialism that will guarantee equal outcomes for all.
    It's the "Everybody gets a Trophy" society which means nobody's trophy means much of anything.
    With everyone's paycheck being equal nobody has much incentive to produce excellence.
    Anyone who thinks Social Justice will work need only look to Cuba or Venezuela to see the results.

  • Humanist schools of thought are not actually as pure as people think they are. Humanism on the whole is rarely, if ever, a terribly progressive thought process since many humanists have "justified" their sexism or other prejudices with "data". In the broadest sense it is a vehicle for statistical hate just as much as it is for equality.

    • He says religion is mental illness yet his field was pioneer by a catholic monk,
      Honestly, if words come out of his mouth that aren't solely about genetics, its generally utter bullshit

    • Oh and calling everyone who believes in god a bigot,
      I'm spiritual but not religious and I believei n a god,
      I follow this rule
      Church: You know, Caboose, I used to not care. I just went along with orders and hoped that everything would work out for me. But after all thats happened to me, you know what I've learned? Its not about hating the guy on the other side because someone told you to. You should hate someone because they're an asshole, or a pervert, or snob, or they're lazy, or arrogant or an idiot or know-it-all. Those are reasons to dislike somebody. You don't hate a person because someone told you to. You have to learn to despise people on a personal level. Not because they're Red, or because they're Blue, but because you know them, and you see them every single day, and you can't stand them because they're a complete and total fucking douchebag.

  • People want to feel morally righteous. Sometimes they will come up with clever names for their agenda to help them do so. What constitutes justice is entirely subjective, of course. Many great thinkers have denied that a just society has lots of equality.
