Wherefore woke corporatists? 'The right has a saying: “Get woke, go broke.” It does seem as though it is sometimes the case that taking a woke leftist stance hurts the bottom line. Just ask Budweiser or Disney. And yet it’s seemingly done all the time.' Companies used to 'rigorously enforce “no-politics or alignment with causes” stance (see this). What changed?' Our education system changed and our privileged Gentry stratified. The Front Office used to be filled with folks that started on the factory floor and worked their way up. Executives used to be folks who worked through college doing manual labor. In this process they mixed and mingled and befriended a number of different cultures and social classes. No more. Now it's the gated neighborhoods, kids go to elite schools and then colleges on loans and never mix outside their circle. 'The people who are now rising to strategic decision-making positions in corporations came out of Academia bubbles where they never had to deal with a contradicting argument, or maybe even know one existed. They’re getting a rude awakening in the marketplace now, and so are their shareholders.' Yes. Deplatforming rather than debate makes everything a fight rather than a discussion. But, when a for profit company goes to war with their customers, unlike colleges who can punish those that don't regurgitate the propaganda, customers simply go elsewhere, which is why big companies hate competition, what they actually hate is US having choices, because then we can choose not to business with them. That is also why we do not want government in control of everything. Everything that government controls is more where you have no choice if they become dictatorial. 'the generation that is often in charge these days was educated, steeped, and marinated in leftist social activism as an absolute good and perhaps a required good. human resources departments have become completely dedicated to these things, as well; and the companies are afraid of threats and boycotts by the left if they don’t toe the leftist line.' I think all of those are having an effect, especially 1. What's new is the Right applying economic pressure. The Good Book says "Without wise leadership, a nation falls; there is safety in having many advisers." Proverbs 11:14 It's important to listen to a wide variety of views and for the various lawful factions within society to have a voice. That brings balance, and balance brings safety, prosperity and health. We could use more of that. Please discuss.
