This article explains almost exactly what I think and feel about this movement. I am really happy to see it articulated on paper.
The article is a bit long but it's well worth the read. It addresses the core issue of the far end of the social justice movement: rejection of logic, and use of emotional pleading. People actively seek to make you feel bad. Seeing the end goal and attempting to get there by any means necessary. The town I live in is very liberal and I have seen this type of thing happen several times, and it seems to be increasing with frequency. It's extremely disenhearting to see a movement that started with initially good intentions, to slowly dissolve into something grotesque and wrong.Originally Posted by excerpts
