    Because justice and virtue lead to gulags guillotines or something.

    I suppose it depends on your definition of "social justice".

    It's also a shit load more profitable so swings and roundabouts I guess.

    You've been struggling to understand this shit for so long, I think it's been explained to you enough times that the onus is on you to fucking figure it out.

    The definition seems to change from person to person and incident to incident

    The only consistent thing is that it's used to shout down people for caring about things

    You can straw man a lot of things that way. I don't think you care what it means, you just don't like people applying it to you. You whine about it constantly and go on about how you just don't understand what it means. And when you get an explanation, you ignore it. If you had a point, you'd ask questions or make an argument.

    "why is being a proponent of social justice or virtue a bad thing" is an argument against a straw man. You're either so stupid you think this is what's being said, or you're leading people on.

    Do you see the U.S. Prison system and the Soviet Gulag systems as equivalent, in terms of how one got there, and how one is treated once there?

    Nope, gulag was preferable because it wasn't based on race

    Was gonna say, talk shit about gulags as much as you want, it's irrelevant tbh, the US prison system is a horrible mess bordering on slavery all on its own with how much profit they make.
