What exactly is this “Social Justice” South Africa is talking about? It is the "Fundamental Change" that Obama is foisting on this country as you read this. It is a concept of equality that involves an economic equality of outcome dreamed up and manufactured for all participants in a society. This comes in the form of socialism or communalism. It comes in the form of income redistribution through taxation, welfare, monetary policies, and is mostly progressive redistribution from the rich to the poor.
Obama already is a proponent of their Universal Healthcare System that will start this April when every citizen there earning above a certain income will be required by law to make a contribution to the National Health Insurance Fund. It will not be possible to opt out of this responsibility. Sound familiar?
The South Africa Bill of Rights also creates a welfare state and bestows rights to “sufficient food and water and social security, including, if they are unable to support themselves and their dependents, appropriate social assistance. The state must take reasonable legislative and other measures, within its available resources, to achieve the progressive realization of each of these rights.” This is a nanny state to the extreme.
Democrat appointed liberal judges here can get guidance from these provisions in making legal decisions in America. “When interpreting the Bill of Rights, a court, tribunal or forum must promote the values that underlie an open and democratic society based on human dignity, equality and freedom; must consider international law; and may consider foreign law.”
This foreign law interpretation use in South Africa's Constitution is already a favorite of Justice Ginsberg, who said in a speech at American University,
“ …why not the analysis of a question similar to the one we confront contained, for example, in an opinion of the Supreme Court of Canada, the Constitutional Court of South Africa, the German Constitutional Court, or the European Court
Can you think of one situation from global warming, to taxation, to voting, to gun rights that you would personally give a damn about what foreign Constitutions say or how foreign courts have ruled? We don’t think so.
