Over the past few years, I’ve noticed a disturbing trend among millennials who refer to themselves as “social justice warriors.” A trend which, despite its noble origins, has become not only a danger to society, but a blemish on real social justice. This trend I’m talking about corrupts feminism, stifles progress towards true social, racial and gender equality, utterly obliterates accountability on the part of those who are underprivileged and, worst of all, completely ignores and even prohibits open-minded discussions from taking place (without which, no change can ever come).

These revolutionaries, as well as the other 51 signers of the Declaration, were undoubtedly some of the most important, intelligent and impassioned individuals of their time in America. They believed that the rights of the people were not given by kings or by governments, but that they were inherent in all men.
