"Socialism" does not mean what the autocratic states claiming to be socialist say it means.  They claim to be socialist states to cover what they really do, serve themselves.  "Capitalism" does not mean what the autocratic states claiming to be capitalist say it means, for the same reasons and excuses.  "Capitalist" states use elements of socialism while denying it's socialism, and "socialist" states use elements of capitalism while denying it's capitalism.  One says Sociana has always been at war with East Capitalasia, and vice-versa, when they are the same thing.

Social Justice and Socialism aren't related terms by the way. Everything you like about the US is socialist, but very little of it is socially just.
Absolute bullshit - the best parts of America are based in Capitalism.  Socialism is cancer and a plague upon the world - see Venezuela for a country where Socialism was faithfully implemented.

And if you think America is "socially unjust," then I recommend an in-depth tour of several autocratic middle eastern countries for a slice of some real injustice.

If I have the characters correct, Alex is the one being blackmailed by his girlfriend. People who engage in blackmail are prone to other malevolent behavior. Just as Johnny Depp recorded Amber Heard, Alex should be recording his interactions with his blackmailer. At this point he has nothing to loose either way from making his own accusations toward her regardless of whether he recorded anything.

If you factor in the history of terms, you end up with some verbiage drift, but the core ideals remain constant, though repackaged.

The primary stretching of the definition of SJW to the attack on Bubble Town is in the shift from a Socialism specific politics to a more general Statist platform. We really don't have a complete enough of a picture of our villains to categorize them more specifically.

My question is WTF is something of this importance doing being covered by a simple password??? If I was running it it would be a two key system similar to a nuclear silo. At the very least I'd have two-factor authorization.... Uncle Rice has good ideas above. Good old fashioned time lock.

Social Justice, as opposed to Equal Justice, is the big smiley face mask Socialism puts on to sound like the good guy in the room. The SJW would be the virtue signaling proponent of Social Justice that suffers some mixture naivety, ignorance, and malice that seems to usually be a source of the very injustice they claim to be fighting. We would have to stretch the definition of SJW a bit to use that label on someone who would have caused this damage, but it might fit.
I'll partially disagree - this is what I'd expect from the future equivalent of Antifa.

As for rest - spot on.

I think its mostly that he doesnt know she stole the codes. He would turn her in a second if he had our perspective. But sitting in the hotseat he only has questions, fear and anxiety. A brainscan if such a thing exists would absove him. I wonder if he can volunteer  that as a defense.

Alex is definitely not helping himself here. Whatever he is being blackmailed with is small potatoes to what he is being accused of here.
