Social justice is the idea that its wrong for you to have more than me,
so you should either a)feel guilty about it and give me an equal share,
or b) sit peacably by while I or some third party is justified in
forcibly confiscating it from you if you don't feel guilty about keeping
what you obviously don't deserve (cause you're a selfish, insensitive,
abusive, sexist, bigoted, racist creep), and I or some third party
obviously has a much better idea of how to waste it away on my own

Justice is what happens to you when you forcibly try to prevent me or
some third party from taking from you what I feel I deserve.
