Is There Such a Thing as "Social Justice"?

Social Justice is a universiality of some "moral" determinant. It doesn't define life in various ways of forms of value. It limits life in definition. Thus, it undermines justice, itself!

The moral concerns of poverty, global warming, "the greater good", or other social concerns are various and dependent on personal goals, values, convictions, understandings, vision, gifts, etc. No one should, or can determine these for another individual. Otherwise, there will be oppression, limitation to choice and a hinderance of academic freedom and values clarification.

So, there really is no such thing as "social justice" as a universal. Social justice has to be defined by someone or something, which limits diversity of "voice".
