‘The Myth of Social Justice’ (1988!)

US riots may cause new COVID-19 cases: expert - Global Times

They wouldn’t know what “justice” is if it came up and bit ’em in the glutes.

Wow! “Social Justice” goes all the way back to 1988! But of course it’s always been with us as an aspect of a fallen and deluded world, albeit under many different names.

James Sauer, writing for Chalcedon in 1988, hit the nail right on the head.


“The aim of social justice,” he declared, “is the establishment of the millenium–without God.” This has been true from the beginning, when the serpent said to Eve, “Ye shall be as gods.”

Now, 32 years later, America is convulsed with riots in her streets, all in the name of Social Justice. But as Mr. Sauer points out, the only relevant consideration, to Social Justice Warriors, is the utopian end: any means to get there are permissible.

It comes from Hell and it smells like brimstone.

  1. Social Justice and Political Correctness came on the scene about the same time. They both picked up steam around Obama’s second term, go figure. I’m going to be optimistic and say its reached its zenith. People are getting tired of it and backlash has been building for some time.

  2. I’m amazed at how many Reformed Christians who are involved with political thoughts have already responded to social justice in the 80s including Ronald Nash, and now someone over at Chalcedon
