According to The Refuge, “an estimated 79,000 young adults and minors have been sex trafficked in Texas.” That’s just in Texas.
Where are the social justice leaders? Are they too busy rewriting American history, as in the 1619 Project, to take to the streets? Maybe they are out tearing down statues and don’t have the fortitude to deal with the living horrors taking place under their noses.
Instead of hating America, the social justice movement should focus on human slavery. Their silence on the subject is telling, to say the least.
For many, including me, it often feels like the world is falling apart. Yeats seems like a prophet in his poem “The Second Coming.”
“Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming!”
It is time for those whose convictions are founded upon the best of Western culture to call forth a passionate intensity and combat the evils that men do.
BLM and its ilk are right about one thing: Social injustice abounds. We need real social justice warriors to turn the tide, not Marxists playing the part of virtue signaling ideologues.
