• What Is Wrong With Social Justice?

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.
