“Envy plus rhetoric equals ‘social justice’” (“Envy + Rhetoric = Social Justice”)

“Envy plus rhetoric equals ‘social justice’” is a saying that has been printed on many images. American economist and political commentator Thomas Sowell wrote this in his syndicated newspaper column on December 1, 1991.

I rarely disagree with Sowell but actually the formula is — Envy plus rhetoric plus robbery with state violence equals “social justice”
