Storytelling Mistakes in Social Justice

Food for thought.

Much of the social justice in my writing comes from either personal observation or prompts from fans with disadvantaged traits. But more recently, it's getting a big boost from social engineering.  I look at a functional society like Terramagne-America and wonder, with increasing detail, how the fleeping heck they make it work.  I have dug into their federal budget, their mass-transit maps, their park parameters, etc. looking for concrete details that I can highlight for replication if desired.  How do you make a society a nicer place to live?  That's the real social justice.
