Social justice often fails because one group of people alone rarely brings equal or ethical opportunities to another. Building stronger communities across differences inspires meaningful contributions from all. Yet some see current notions of social justice as flawed in that it presupposes that others are less mentally capable. You?
1. If social justice was not an option, would we better support and value each person’s unique intelligences to build diverse talented communities?
2. What mental alternatives, other than deficit models that often accompanies social justice efforts, would open genuine equity to diverse people?
3. When social justice efforts fail to fuse racial differences, what replacement practice would more effectively unleash human intelligence?
5. Could common ethical standards, practiced across differences – open more opportunities than current social justice does toward a stronger world?
Perhaps it’s time to look beyond the broken rules and foggy roles of social justice. Begin to envision amazing possibilities that exist when people build new neuron pathways toward greater good for all. What do you think?
I’d say the opposite of social justice is talent like this YouTube shows and it comes to the stage when leaders take time to listen and value a person’s genuine offering. Susan Boyle shows a dream at its best on Britain’s Got Talent. Whose talent have you supported or inspired lately? That could be the beginning of new opportunities for an entire community.
