Leftist Social Justice:
Government enforcement of economic equality at the expense of equality of economic rights - where some men (the men of government) may do as they please with other men and the product of other men's labor - to redistribute the product of their labor, first to themselves, and then to other men in return for votes.

Traditional American Social Justice:
Government enforcement of equal economic rights at the expense of equal economic outcome - where each man may do as he pleases with himself and the product of his labor.

According to Abraham Lincoln Leftist "Social Justice" is tyranny and social injustice, and traditional American Social Justice is - Social Justice.

"With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name - liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatible names - liberty and tyranny." Abraham Lincoln
