Social Justice is a euphemism
Reader comment on: Nurse Union Chief's Communist Past

OxfordDictionaries.com defines Social Justice as:
Justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society.
and provides as an example:
individuality gives way to the struggle for social justice
This is on target. Social Justice places the welfare of the community (as determined by its adherents) ahead of the rights of individuals. It is a euphemism for Communism.
I find it surprising that Ms. Furrillo would describe the Communist Party as a movement for social justice only in that she is refreshingly honest.
