We should see most critics of our society for what they are: profiteers selling a new form of slavery.

Social justice, or what pretends to be social justice, is big business. Think of all the journalists, lobbyists, politicians, academics, professional activists, etc. who make a living talking about what's wrong with this country. They sell dependance and oppression. They would have to find real jobs if we just stopped listening to them, formed our own opinions and embraced more positive attitudes.

I have the highest respect for those truly committed to social justice who put their money and lives where their mouth is. There is plenty to be done. But we don't need those getting rich convincing other people they are victims and need their help.
