Rare surviving Khmer Rouge leader Khieu Samphan in appealing his life sentence for crimes against humanity plead to a United Nations supported court that his only fight was for "social justice" (archived). Of course the Khmer Rouge's atrocities were the natural end of the social justice agenda, an agenda which is returning to vogue in certain circles. The social justice agenda notably dismisses concerns over actual justice to instead elevate social equality as their first principle. In this way the Khmer Rouge was an exemplar! All are equal under the yoke, and the 750,000 to 3,000,000 who died1 in Khmer Rouge atrocities were the most equal of all!
The wide uncertain range persists because the Khmer Rouge was just that effective in suppressing the individual in the name of social equality/justice. ↩
