You see the economic and social systems of America "as they are" and assume that's how it always has been, and always will be, and anyone who questions that is not just wrong, but is "un-American."

OR

You recognize that America and the world are subject to change, that maybe, just maybe, the views of those who defend the status quo are based on their privileged place in the status quo, and as long as there are people who are deprived of basic humanities by the economic and social system, there is no justice.


Which of these statements do you identify with more?
