What is the true nature of "social justice" that the far left promotes? | Eastern North Carolina Now

Argentine president-elect nails it


School superintendant Cheeseman in his doctoral dissertation was concerned about "social justice", a term thrown around a lot by the far left, and that dissertation was written while he has been working for Beaufort County Schools.  Now, a foreign leader, Javier Milei, president elect of Argentina has given a very good definition of what "social justice" is and its danger to society.

Milei explained that "a society that obsesses with equality sooner or later becomes a society of looters and falls apart.  That is the story of Argentina.  Therefore the point is that social justice is unjust.  There is nothing more unjust than social justice.  What is the greatest achievement of liberalism?"

"Liberalism's greatest achievement is 'equality before the law'.  That is to say that the law is the same for everyone.  When you adhere to the idea of social justice, which means redistribution of wealth, what you are really doing is using the repressive state apparatus so you can take it from the successful and redistribute it capriciously according to the wishes of whomever is in power."


Cheeseman could learn a lot from President-elect Milei.

Growth????? The massive forced bussing ordered by Judge McMillan was a losing situation for everybody. The students bussed out from the predominantly black high schools to majority white high schools did not want to go, the blacks already there were caught in tricky, delicate, and uncomfortable situations due to resentments from the blacks being bussed in. For whites there was a lot of chaos that disrupted education.

These problems persisted beyond that first year. The very next year, the first white student walkout occured at South Mecklenburg. A white girl whose class was in the school library asked to go to the restroom and did. When she walked in, there were some of the Second Ward black girls in there cutting class and they jumped her, holding her down and beating her while she called for help. A student government officer was walking down the hall toward the principal's office, heard the cry for help, and went in and rescued her. The only student disciplined was the white boy who rescued the girl, who was suspended for going in a girl's restroom (different era, I guess!). The next day there was a student walkout and protest, which most white students and many of the rural blacks as well, from what I was told, participated in. Unfortunately, my high school German teacher, Mr. Idol, got fired over that. He had gone out for a pizza the evening before the walkout, and there were a bunch of students in the pizza place talking about the incident and what to do about it. Mr. Idol had agreed it was wrong to suspend the rescuer and not the assailants and suggested a petition to take to the school board. Apparently that was enough for the principal to blame him for the walkout and protest.

A couple of years later, bussing was still festering as an issue in the Mecklenburg County schools. When a bussing dispute arose in Boston, somebody got an idea to bring some students up from those schools to tell Boston that bussing was okay, and did so. This infuriated many other students who still were upset over bussing, and the next day, anti-bussing demonstrations broke out at all of the high schools and some of the junior highs in Mecklenburg County, and from the news footage I watched, there were both white and black students participating in those protests.

Judge McMillan paid a personal price for his radical social engineering court order. He was a member of the Myers Park Country Club, the most elite upscale country club in the county. My brother's girlfriend's family were also members so I heard the impact there. After McMillan's order, the rest of the members gave him the silent treatment, refusing to talk to him. He would try to talk to people he had known for years and they just ignored him like he was not there. He stayed away months, apparently hoping it would blow over but it did not. When he went back, he was still given the silent treatment. His ruling made him a pariah in the community.

Bob, you use the term "growth" and that might be an appropriate term if you used it in the sense of a "growth" that is discovered on a liver, kidney, or other vital organ. Bussing severely damaged the educational experience of all races. It is a very distinct issue from integration, something that was positive for education.

It is correct that the concept of "systemic racism" is a Marxist construct, promoted in recent years by Marxist-organized BLM. It is an integral part of "Critical Race Theory" which was developed by a group of avowedly Marxist law professors as part of "Critical Theory". Critical Theory was devised by Herbert Marcuse, a strident Marxist who was chief ideologue of the Communist Party of Germany in the Weimar Republic and fled to the US to become a professor after Hitler took over. At first Marcuse expected the proletariat to rise up and overthrow Hitler but when they did not, he concluded that divisions in society other than economic had to be created for the left to exploit, and Critical Theory is all about creating those divisions.

If Little Bobbie is not a card carrying party member, he is at least a fellow traveller, and my bet would be on the latter.

You have it ass backward, Little Bobbie. It is the Marxists who always play the race card. BLM, for example, was organized by a group of women who admit on video that they are "trained Marxists".

Ever notice how a racist will play the Marxist card to justify their behavior? They did it with MLK and they do it today.

"Systemic Racism" is the Woke term from "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing" - Bill Shakespeare.

. . . but spouting Marxist ideology like "systemic racism" DOES, and it also means you are NOT a "decent human being" because Marxists and their fellow travellers do not qualify for that label.

Being a decent human being doesn’t make you a Marxist.

"Systemic racism" is a Marxist myth pushed by Marxists and Marxist groups, and it is part of the Marxist concocted "Crtical Race THeory" You out yourself as to what you are, Bolshevik Bob, when you use that radical ideological term.

Even though I was young and born into it, I benefited from and still benefit from systemic racism that is part of our country. It doesn’t take 5000 words to say I’m sorry and will do better.
