    Are there any groups or individuals who have earned their privilige, or is all privilege the result of injustice?
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I dont believe privilege is a good thing and it is not the same as just desserts but I dont think it all arises from what most people refer to when they are talking about injustice.

    No one is going to give it to you.

    You have to take it.
    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
    - Edmund Burke

    I think being aware of your privilege helps you come to smarter, more informed conclusions. I don't think anybody's opinions should be invalidated due to their privilege unless they're ignoring that fact.

    I agree very much with this post about your opinion on Salome.

    I'm curious how much of an advantage, in percentage terms, people think any particular privilege is worth, to justify the amount of fuss and attention the concept generates, and the sacrifices (whether in terms of liberties, or aggregate utility and competing civic virtues) many advocates propose as a means of rectifying it?

    I might refer to what you're talking about as status rather than privilege, although status can confer privilege.
