Conservatives are perceived to be at a disadvantage when it comes to social justice. We simply must get better at thinking and talking about it. And we have a lot to offer. Liberal progressivism is very flawed in its perceptions of social justice, and its policy prescriptions are often disastrous. It is no accident that after nearly a decade of the left's ascendancy, American society is bitterly divided and increasingly convinced that social institutions have been hijacked to enrich a few favored groups with both money and power.
Social justice is a goal that challenges every generation. It is never achieved completely, but we must keep trying. The holidays provide a wonderful opportunity to ponder this transcendent ideal of our Judeo-Christian heritage.
In a recent article in The Nation, Canadian author/activist Naomi Klein posed an important question/observation: "What does #BlackLivesMatter have to do with Climate Change?" (http://www.thenation.com/article/192801/what-does-blacklivesmatter-have-do-climate-change)
On the next episode of PR 13:20, we'll look deeper into Klein's inquiry, and discuss the similarities revealed when juxtaposing the issues of social and environmental justice, the affects of rampant police brutality and unchecked global warming, and the communities and nations most affected. We'll also look at where these movements intersect and appear to be headed, and what actions can be taken to ensure that systemic change does occur, and soon, because our lives do depend upon it.

When help hurts, it isn't help.
What could possibly be wrong with social justice? We like justice. We are social beings. Should not our communities be just ones? Author Elgin Hushbeck, Jr. maintains that social justice is not justice. When we pursue social justice, it is at the expense of true justice and in its pursuit of equality, social justice threatens liberty. It is a case of setting contradictory and incompatible goals. Hushbeck examines our current pursuit of social justice and how it has failed, while looking also at the scriptures we use in that pursuit and how we have misunderstood them. While we should care about our neighbors and find ways to ease the plight of the poor, social justice’s emphasis on redistribution is not only often unjust but it actually makes things worse. His prescription? Pursue justice and liberty without any adjectives.
