The definition of ‘social justice’ is imprecise. That’s where the rub begins. It has precise meaning only for its user, is what the user wants it to be. So, can it be precisely defined? Perhaps, if we focus upon its application.
In his 1999 book The Quest for Cosmic Justice, Dr. Thomas Sowell wrote, “In politics, the great non-sequitur of our time is that 1) things are not right and that 2) the government should make them right. Where right all too often means cosmic justice, trying to set things right means writing a blank check for a never-ending expansion of government power.”
That explains the ultimate objective of social justice: a never-ending expansion of government power [emphasis mine].
