“Social justice” or injustice is identity politics, a political tool used by leftist radicals to divide and conquer. For example, who is at fault when week after week black men are killing other black men in Chicago? If there were an actual behavior or policy of “social justice”, then that society in Chicago would clean up its act, would be able to clean up its act. Instead, an ongoing crisis is needed by politicians and BLM cronies; that society is being manipulated.
The kneeling NFL football player is a victim of that manipulation too. And now so are Nike shareholders.
But, like so many similar political issues, the real problem – the injustice – is never fixed because politicians and their cronies, despite their rhetoric, need the issue to be ongoing in order to incite and divide the public and build their constituency. This is how community organizers like Obama work.
“Hegelian dialectic, usually presented in a threefold manner, was stated by Heinrich Moritz Chalybäus as comprising three dialectical stages of development: a thesis, giving rise to its reaction; an antithesis, which contradicts or negates the thesis; and the tension between the two being resolved by means of a synthesis.” -wikipedia.
In the Hegelian manipulation, the real problem and the real solution to the problem are never discussed. Instead, the viewer, reader, listener is presented positions to distract them, while making them believe that they have considered the issue and made their own decision. (It’s much more difficult to get someone to listen when they believe they have already considered the issue and made their own decision.) However, the real issue and solution are outside the box. “Social justice” and politicians are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
