Mandating a perfect world
As if that were possible. There’s a difference between the Christian duty to alleviate suffering and injustice and the left’s (and what is passed off as the right’s) perfectionism, the result of which invariably is far from that ideal.
Social justice, in the catechism of the socialist religion, is no more than an exertion of raw power to force people to conform to what liberal-progressives believe conditions ought to be.

Forced equality
[of outcome — equal opportunity is moral] was the mode in the world’s first socialist political state, Revolutionary France.
I think of that every time I see somebody who still has a Che Guevara poster or T-shirt.

From RR.
Socialism is workable only in heaven where they don’t need it and in hell where they’ve got it.
