    Is Social Justice legitimate?

    Especially the part about equality of outcome? This seems to be used for justification of wealth redistribution.

    It is in cases where the health of the country is at stake, otherwise, no.

    That's my take on it, at least.

    I screwed up the poll on this one. Please go to http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...egitimate.html and hopefully the mods can delete this one.

    We should use capitalism where possible and social institutions where necessary.

    In terms of wealth distribution. It should not be use for justice as much as making sure everyone has enough opportunity that the potential Einsteins and Bill Gates of our society do not end up trapped in some ghetto, unable to make real social contributions which help everyone.

    At least that's how I see it.

    I voted no, stealing to give to others who didn't earn it is wrong and so is discrimination
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I voted no primarily because it restricts the ability of individuals to reach their full potential and creates a false sense of security and reality regarding what is required of individuals to live. Life ain't a free ride.

    Justice is in the eye of the beholder. Of course, most peoples' definitions of "justice" correspond with what is most likely to benefit them.

    No, of course not.

    "Social justice" is nothing more than a term used by the Left to disguise their unjust theft of property and freedoms.
