"Why Social Justice Is Cancer": that is, the ideology of it, not the resultant
Lauren Chen explains “Why Social Justice Is Cancer: Identity Politics, Equality, and Marxism”
She doesn’t object to social justice as a natural result in a well-functioning society, but on it as an ideology.
She is right on in noting that the “social justice warrior” movement is about focusing on one’s identity as a part of a group and not as the self. Along with this is the ideology of “intersectionality”.
Everything in this ideology comes from the karma of belonging to an oppressor or oppressed groups.
In intersectional theory, people pay for the sins of others in their groups.
She recommends people educate themselves about what’s in the Communist Manifesto.
People are calling “social justice combat” a new “religion”.
She also mentions the controversy over people (perhaps particularly on the “Right”) being taken off Patreon recently.
