I wrote on this sometime back, noting the objectives of social justice advocates going back a century:
- Suffrage (and other sex equality matters): affected 50% of the population.
- Civil Rights (affected 12–15% of the population)
- Gay Rights (affected 6–8% of the population)
- Transgender rights (affects 1–2% of the population)
Obviously, the social justice advocates are running out of things to be incensed about that resonate with enough of the public to matter. So, we’ve moved into more nebulous matters, such as “systemic bias” which probably exists, but can’t be measured, and therefore can’t be “fixed”, and therefore provides an endless source of issues to be agitated about. :-)
