Social Justice

A Quote by walkabout on rights and social justice

The surest way to take away the rights of a group is to conceive of them in the abstract, as an amorphous blob rather than a collection of individual persons.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on social justice, social responsibility, community, independence, people, self, and solitude

My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities.  I am truly a "lone traveler" and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude - feelings which increase with the years.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Alfred Austin on freedom, charity, life, faith, helping, social justice, right, right and wrong, hope, and action

Is life worth living?
Yes, so long as there is wrong to right.
So long as faith with freedom reigns and loyal hope survives,
And gracious charity remains to leaven lowly lives;
While there is only one untrodden tract for intellect or will,
And men are free to think and act,
Life is worth living still.

Alfred Austin (1835 - 1913)

A Quote by Christina Baldwin on social justice, environment, revolution, peace, progressive, and circles

We need a revolution in the West:  not violent overthrow, but a willingness to take responsibility for the course of history being set forth in our names.  We need a revolution determined to activate broad, inclusive social change.
