America is in trouble. There’s violence and looting in big cities, seething hatred between certain classes, and envy and jealousy fanned by socialists who promise to redistribute wealth. This isn’t the America we’re accustomed to. Social Justice Ideology fuels discontent. It’s based on grievance, blames institutions, and pushes for equality of outcomes. These are Marxist ideas. And it conflates disparity with injustice and oppression. Social justice activism is getting favorable treatment from many in the mainstream media. But this is because they’ve forgotten what America is about: That each of us has dignity and value, that we’re endowed with rights from God. The rule of law, protection of private property, and the ability to create wealth—all give us an opportunity that’s still the envy of the world.
