Social Justice = Slavery

Reading about all the young ignorant, uneducated, “millennials” who proudly label themselves “socialists” or “social justice warriors” (same thing) reminded me of a question posed by my old friend Professor Walter E. Williams in a speech he gave at my university several years ago. The question is: What would you call a system that used force, violence, coercion, and intimidation to compel one person to work for the benefit of another person or persons? Whenever I ask this of one of my undergraduate classes it usually takes about five seconds for someone to blurt out, “slavery!” Exactly. The class then becomes very uncomfortable and unhappy looking when I ask if there is any different between this and the welfare state or the “social justice” that so many of them have been indoctrinated into celebrating.

  1. I’ve been saying that this is slavery for years. To force/compel someone to involuntarily do work for someone else that is against their conscience is nothing but slavery. I’ve already told my kids that slavery is coming back. To expect it. It will in 15 years become socially acceptable.

    And this should scare the living hell out of anyone.
