In just a very few words, all the way back in 1978, R.J. Rushdoony demolished the whole concept of “social justice”–so don’t bother to wonder why the Wokies don’t like him.
“Social justice does not exist. It is a myth,” he wrote. Sinners define right and wrong, so that for them sin equals virtue and lawlessness is law.
But the thrust of God’s justice is restitution and restoration, and taking responsibility for one’s actions. Any reading of Exodus and Leviticus will clearly teach that.
In “social justice” you just decide whom to blame and sic the state on him–the same state for which God’s laws don’t exist. And we can all see how that turns out, can’t we?
One comment on “‘Social Justice’ (R.J. Rushdoony)”
A good, short, and to the point message. Thanks for placing it here.
