The other major disadvantage to the mainstream branding of social justice is that it's making the Right loathe us. From the point of view of a social conservative, social justice is the new normal in the public eye and especially on social media, meaning that their opinions appear sidelined, oppressed and unspeakable.
We need to squash the redundant notion that it is a subject purely for the linguistically capable elite, and open the doors to the less privileged. This subject is not limited only to language study; the ancient world is full of areas of exploration, so let's not pretend academic scholarship must be limited to linguistics.

The first reason why working class students should consider avoiding university altogether, is because it is bloody expensive. Tuition fees in the UK are already sky-high in comparison to many of the other European countries. Under a Tory government, there's a strong chance that tuition fees will get even higher by the end of the next parliament as well.
It's a budget of which young people and those working on the lowest incomes are the biggest victims. Don't let the piecemeal soundbite policies distract from that. It's a political master class in creating the perception of centrist policies while pursuing an ideologically right wing economic agenda that appeases those who turn out and vote, older people and the wealthy.
