"Dr. James Lindsay .. makes very clear that Critical Social Justice is not the same thing as social justice. He argues that the branding of social justice, which is how Critical Social Justice promotes itself, misleads people about the nature of that movement. More specifically, he explains how Critical Social Justice—the thing “inside the box”—doesn’t match the “social justice” image “on the outside of the box,” leading people to take up with a movement they wouldn’t support if they understood it more accurately. To convey this message, he reads directly from the Critical Social Justice literature wherein scholars and activists call Critical Social Justice by that name and explicitly explain that it is neither a liberal movement, as is often thought, nor the same thing as the “true commitments” of social justice. It is a virus that infects liberalism, and Lindsay draws upon this imagery to make his case (many months ahead of the current Covid-19 pandemic outbreak)."
