Van Jones neither knows me nor loves me when he says, “I love the Tea party but I wish it didn’t hate justice so much.”
I love justice very well, thank you, Van. But you can take your social justice* and go home.
*Social justice is based on the concepts of human rights and equality and involves a greater degree of economic egalitarianism through progressive taxation, income redistribution, or even property redistribution. These policies aim to achieve what developmental economists refer to as more equality of opportunity than may currently exist in some societies, and to manufacture equality of outcome in cases where incidental inequalities appear in a procedurally just system.
