Sabir, let me get this straight - you criticise the author for an unnuanced conception of social justice, and then go on to equate it with communism? In your words, 'let me make it simple for you'. A communist society is one in which the state owns most of the economy and private enterprise and competition is banned. 'Social justice' can mean a number of things to different people, but it doesn't belong to any particular political or economic ideology. You can be a staunch capitalist and campaign for social justice, as no doubt many of those participating in the demonstrations will tell you. It's simply to do with wanting a more equitable, meritocratic society. Social democracy in Europe has long been a pro-market, anti-communist political movement that nonetheless advocates robust state intervention - NOT the same as ownership - to curb the ugly side of unfettered capitalism. Or is that just another 'very effective euphemism for communism'?
