I have gotten on to a side track here on the University of Maine, which is a major recipient of funds from the legislature's redistribution of wealth programs.
As mentioned previously Peter Pitegoff, the current Dean of The University of Maine Law School, is on the board of the Coastal Enterprises Incorporated whose mission statement includes the words "…all to achieve social and economic justice within sustainable communities."
Peter Pitegoff's bio contains a similar statement, stating that his focus is on social and economic justice
In Maine, Pitegoff is advancing the Law School through new program development and engagement with diverse institutions. He has positioned the Law School to expand upon its pivotal role in law, policy, and economic development regionally and in Maine and to achieve a higher profile on a global stage. Curricular innovation is bolstering a historically stellar teaching institution, faculty research kindles scholarly exchange and publication, and public service pervades the organizational culture. With a focus on the environment, ocean and coastal issues, social and economic justice, health policy, and more, Pitegoff is working to identify the Law School as a destination point for students, faculty, scholars, lawyers, and policymakers from near and far
....... In 2006, the presiding officers of the Maine Legislature appointed Dean Pitegoff to the advisory committee on legislative ethics.
The phrase "social and political justice" represents a specific political movement. It is not within the scope of the current post to define it, but one can get a general idea by reviewing the table of contents of the the link below. Today the phrase "social justice" or "social and political justice' is largely associated with the radical left which desires to transform the American political system into socialism. The identification of these specific phrases is so generally known, that it is hard to believe that one can use these words without understanding that they will be identified with the socialist movement within the United States of America.

Many confuse the distributive principles of justice with those of charity. Charity involves the concept "to each according to his needs," whereas "distributive justice" is based on the idea "to each according to his contribution." Confusing these principles leads to endless conflict and scarcity, forcing government to intervene excessively to maintain social order.
