City council tried to fluoridate the water. The woo community marched in the street, held an election, and blocked the measure.

A local capitalist owns a lot and allowed a tent city to operate there. They have accrued fines into 6 figures.

On a related note, we have a "no stopping" ordinance on the sidewalks. Also, there's code against unpermitted structures, which includes putting a tarp over you if you're sleeping on the streets. The old mayor stopped enforcing these ordinances. Camps went up. People in houses raised hell. Camps got swept. This in a VERY liberal city.

I'm glad you had specific examples. I tried to think of some, and then I got overwhelmed because everything here is stupid.

The old Portland was poor, and therefore very liberal. The new Portland pays lip service to liberal ideals, but there are a lot of people with money here and first and foremost they wish to remain comfortable, which means not having to deal with the complaints of brown people and poors.

When I think of social justice, I think of it in the general sense. That all people should be allowed equal treatment under the law, whether these be considered "just laws" or "unjust laws". If all people are treated the same the the laws of the land, then in my view "social justice" has taken place.


Then you do not believe in social justice and are in fact a shitlord.

Is it a religion, that I have to believe?

I can see that in place of answering any pointed questions ITT, you're intent on wanking all over this topic.

Thanks for that, you never know whose threads to ignore at first. This is super helpful!

I know better than to tell a libertarian piece of shit they "have" to do anything.

Another banal, undereducated "freethinker", I see. They must be reproducing asexually.

Well if we were really thinking freely, we would just redefine every word we wanted to use, or make up our own entirely.

I'm not sure what's wrong with equal treatment under the law.

I am sure there are whole libraries full of books filled with things you aren't sure about.
