Which is not evidences that they are similar.
Inductive arguments can be evidence for a proposition. Even so, the only variable is the quality of the social justice point at issue. That the standard anti-progress arguments are bullshit is constant.
The quality of the issues is a key point. Civil rights activists (CRA) back in the day espoused issues and ideals that were venerable. Today, the issues seem to be a characture, and as such derided, or or less, from all sides. There is nothing really coherent about the principles behind today's issues except, perhaps, that entitled white kids need something to do.
If anything, today's SJW will be remembered as the underground auxiliary that got Trump a second term.
