Justice vs. Social Justice

Here's the best quote I've ever read about the two. If you have a problem with the source, get over yourself, expand your horizons, and hear the truth of the words:

By the way, there's a huge difference between "justice" (government acts to ensure equal treatment before the law) and "social justice" (government acts to redistribute resources to those it feels are more deserving—and more likely to vote for said government). Conservatives view the latter as distorting market incentives that drive growth and prosperity, and fostering dependency that produces social dysfunction.
