I also see the concept as one of the greatest threats to freedom since what social justice types call "unjust" is merely the sum of so many people making free choices: what to buy, what to sell, who to hire, who to fire.It becomes "unjust" in their eyes when they simply dislike the outcome of these free choices, and of course, there's a lot to dislike about what free people choose. I don't understand why some of my favorite bands are only mildly successful while the most generic pop bands are enormously successful. I don't like it, but I can't call it "unjust" when this is just the consequence of people acting freely.The only way, then, to change the outcomes that result from freedom is to deprive at least some people of their freedom -- to force them against their will to make choices other than what they would have made. If we care about our freedom, then I'd think we should be quite opposed to the concept of social justice since it is one of the greatest threats to freedom.
If we applied "social justice" ideas to the dating and relationship world, then everyone might end up with a partner. The problem is that we'd have to use force, like forcing people into marriage against their will. We'd have to violent their freedoms and deprive them of the ability to freely choose their partners. And from my standpoint, that would be far more unjust (or just simply truly unjust) as opposed to the consequences that naturally occur when people are free to choose their partners.

You mean hate crime laws? Well in my opinion if a homosexual steals your wallet and you beat their ass that is not a hate crime but it is still considered one but if a straight person steals your wallet and you beat there ass it is not a hate crime. You see the flaw in that? Social Justice is not about equality of any kind it is only about favoring one group over another that is the problem with it.
@ArchEnemy The premise behind your example is flawed which is why the conclusion is flawed. No sane person and most certainly no court will consider it a hate crime if you beat up some guy (who just happen to be gay) after he stole your wallet.
@Starrk The prosecutor will. Your logic is flawed if you think a hate crime can happen to anyone but a straight white person.
@ArchEnemy No, they won't. Learn how hate crimes operate before providing your incorrect opinion. And you can stop with the "Woe is me" narrative. Playing victim wasn't cute 50 years ago and it most certainly isn't cute now.
@Starrk No you are incorrect because there are no hate crimes when it comes to straight white people. It doesn't happen proven fact! You are no different than other SJWs. Just a waste who thinks with emotion over logic. I am not replying anymore because speaking to you makes me lose brain cells.
Social justice is an oddly specific subset of justice
