What Hath Social Justice Wrought?

It is our duty to fight.

It is our duty to win.

We have nothing to lose but our chains.

 

So chant thousands of students at rallies and protests in universities all across the United States of America.

Except that none of these students are oppressed. Not a single damn one of them.

None of them are chained.

They are all students attending university in the most powerful and prosperous country on the face of the Earth.

An ocean of possibility stands before each and every single one of these young students, the likes of which can only be dreamed of by millions of children in war torn, impoverished or otherwise benighted parts of the world.

This is a cult.

These people are cultists.

This is what the Cult of Social Justice and Identity Politics hath wrought.

 

Postscript: To be fair, from the smirks of some of the students in the last video it does appear that they realise deep down that this is all a fraud, that none of them are “chained”, and that this huge collective tantrum from the most privileged generation in history is nothing but a massive insult toward previous generations who really did have to fight, win, and yes, even cast off their chains.

Sargon Of Akkad On Social Justice

Popular YouTube political/cultural vlogger Sargon of Akkad is the (infinitely more popular) video equivalent of this blog in seeking to sound the alarm as universities and students’ unions fall under the spell of the Cult of Identity Politics.

Readers who do not already do so should consider following his YouTube channel.

At present, Sargon of Akkad (real name Carl Benjamin) is drumming up support for a petition to end social justice courses being taught as legitimate academic subjects at university. Those who are interested can sign it here.

In the video shown above, Benjamin makes an entertaining (and cathartic) case that the social justice / identity politics community is little more than a cult, the majority of whose complaints bear little resemblance to reality and whose philosophy is not deserving of the official imprimatur of the academy.
