As I have been saying for the past fifteen years.
On the question of totalitarian humanism, one can theoretically be a cultural far leftist without being a totalitarian humanist, just as in past times one could advocate social justice for the working class without being a Marxist-Leninist. And one could have attitudes similar to those of the SJWs without necessarily being a totalitarian statist. Opposition to totalitarian humanism spans the entire spectrum from far, far, far Left anarchists (like myself) to the far Right (like my friends from the alternative right and neo-reactionary milieus). Unfortunately, a lot of anarchists get suckered by totalitarian humanism in the same way some anarchists and anarcho-syndicalists got suckered by Communism in the past.
Social justice warriors believe in an extreme left-wing ideology that combines feminism, progressivism, and political correctness into a totalitarian system that attempts to censor speech and promote fringe lifestyles while actively discriminating against men, particularly white men. They are the internet activist arm of Western progressivism that acts as a vigilante group to ensure compliance and homogeny of far left thought.
The true definition of SJW is up for debate, but most generally it has become a catch-all term that describes feminists and liberals who actively try to solve the perceived social injustices of modern society by organizing in online communities to disseminate propaganda, censor speech, and punish individuals by getting them terminated from their employment. They have also been successful at positioning themselves in the upper echelons of universities, media organizations, and tech companies.
SJW’s do not view all humans as equal
Using a “privilege” hierarchy, SJW’s calculate the worth of a human being based on perceived injustices or wrongs that group has suffered since the time of ancestral man, using selective and narrow interpretations of history. SJW’s elevate groups that they believe have received the least amount of “privilege” in the past, and then use internet activism in the form of mobs and community purges to target those who are determined to have greater amounts of privilege. The idea of privilege is so essential to SJW ideology that a common debate tactic they use is to say “check your privilege,” which roughly translates to, “you must immediately halt or change your speech because your ancestors may or may not have done bad things to women or minority races.”
