Woke corporations seem to be the new, hip thing to do if you’re a mega corporation. After all, you get tons of positive press for free from the mainstream media, and you can pretend to be the “good guy,” so to speak.
But are corporations really going woke because they care about LGBTQ+ rights or Black Lives Matter or environmentalism?
No, actually, for the most part, those corporations couldn’t care less about any of those topics, at least from a corporate standpoint (I’m sure that there are individuals in every mega corporation who care about woke political positions).
That information may be a relief to some readers of this site, but other readers may simply realize that it doesn’t matter why corporations are going woke if consumers still have to deal with the nonsense.
So, what is the real reason that corporations are going woke? Justin Haskins says that it’s profitable for them, and that’s the bottom line. Haskins writes,
Rather than resist these changes, large corporations and investors know they can benefit immensely from the arrangement. All they have to do is play ball by agreeing to adhere to the whims of central banks, governments in North America and Europe, and their political allies—most of which are left-wing activist groups and labor unions.
I know this might sound like a wild, right-wing conspiracy theory, but the evidence is quite overwhelming. In June 2020, the World Economic Forum, working with CEOs and presidents from large corporations, powerful bankers, international institutions, labor union leaders, and activists, launched the “Great Reset,” a plan to overhaul the entire global economy.
“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article about the initiative. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
How, exactly, will this transformation occur? Exactly as we are seeing it play out now. Corporations and banks will impose left-wing social justice policies on society, and they will be rewarded by governments, central banks, and investors, who, in turn, will also earn large profits from new streams of government-printed cash.
To sum it up, the influx of government cash into corporations from woke politicians and their governments is what makes going woke attractive to corporations.
In other words, not only do those corporations not care about you and me (we already knew that), but those corporations don’t even care about the people who would “benefit” from the adopting of woke policies.
Now, the questions is: How do we make it incredibly un-profitable for those corporations to be woke? What do you think? Tell us below.
