Justice League

Things were so much simpler in the old days. If a citizen was brutally murdered, those who were actually responsible for the act were sought out and brought to justice. The only points of debate were generally in regard to whether or not the accused were guilty. Today, though, there is a leftist “Justice League” in town, and their take on things would make Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman awfully confused.

Pax Christi USA is a prime Catholic Left organization within the larger progressive “Justice League”. They are true seekers of “justice” in the world and have committed themselves to its advancement. Good for them, except that their idea of “justice” is quite different from that of the average person. In fact, they really hope to tear down our old “cultural” perceptions of justice, like those we learned from Superman, Wonder Woman……….and even the Catholic Church which Pax Christi USA claims to represent on some level. The heroes from the cartoon Justice League (along with our religious leaders and our parents) have taught us all about Retributive Justice. In other words, “If you do the crime, you have to do the time.” This sort of thinking is anathema to the “justice” seekers on the Left.

In my last article, I described how the Catholic Campaign for Human Development [CCHD] is using “Transformative Education” to indoctrinate the poor to be Marxist agitators. As noted, a sister theory to Transformative Education is Transformative Justice. Transformative Justice is a theory that is in contrast to Retributive Justice in that the “cause” of the crime is seen not as the will of the perpetrator, but rather the system which the perpetrator is a part of. Blame, then, is not attributed to the perpetrators but to the entire system, or community, from which the perpetrator hails. It is the Left‘s adherence to their belief in Transformative Justice which causes them to believe that the TEA Party movement is racist and that the Catholic Church is filled with sexual predator priests.  They cannot bring themselves to get their minds around the idea of blaming an individual person for individual acts of injustice. Rather, they prefer to believe that if a few examples of bad behavior are found, the entire system wherein it was found is to blame. While they experience mass ego, the opposition experiences mass blame.
