    Learn the true meanings of social justice, which is equality in distribution of resources as per need of each individual, not just distribution of equal amount of sources among all individuals. For example, a grown-up person's food need is greater than a child, and you should serve each of the two as per their requirement, not just treat them equally. If you distribute one bread to each of the two, one is likely to stay hungry while other will waste the food.
