Woke joke and disloyalty

CEOs’ Woke Joke: Surrendering To ‘Stakeholders’. I & I Editorial Board – “it’s a sad sign of the times when a group of people with such great financial responsibility sign a “pledge” that commits them to doing the exact opposite of what they’re supposed to do, in the only economic system that has ever delivered wealth and happiness to hundreds of millions of people.

“Workers not rewarded? Raise their pay.

Rapid change leaving your workers behind? Offer them better training. But please, no moral sermons.

By both law and custom, it is a corporate leader’s fiduciary responsibility to look after his or her shareholders’ interests. To do otherwise is a breach of the faith investors show when they risk their hard-won savings. To tell them they’re no longer the company’s main concern goes beyond foolish — it’s a danger to our free-market system.

The 181 CEOs who signed the pledge make a categorical mistake when they believe that serving their shareholders doesn’t advance a higher societal function. It does.

Those CEOs who signed the pledge might not have realized it, but they don’t get to make this decision. The people do. CEOs who impose far-left ideas on their corporations deserve to be sued by their cheated shareholders.

The New York Times Is Trying to Rewrite History to Fit Its Biases. Cal Thomas – “This is the stuff of totalitarian regimes where the media serve as a propaganda organ for the state, in this case the surging left wing of the Democratic Party.

“Not satisfied with practicing what used to be called journalism, it appears the newspaper’s ultimate goal is to change what is taught in public schools so that children will no longer think highly of their country because of the “stain” of slavery, a stain that has been more than paid for in blood and federal programs, which have attempted to lift some descendants of slaves out of poverty.

The Times’ attempt to shape history to fit its own biases is not journalism. If public schools follow its lead, they will begin to resemble schools in countries where freedom is not the prevailing tenet and antithetical to what the Founders gave us. America’s greatness eventually led to the freeing of slaves and a chance at a better life for their descendants.

Contagion, cont’d: Marriott cook latest to get arrested in nationwide wave. Ed Morrissey – “Excessive media coverage doesn’t make people crazy. However, the obsessive nature of coverage of mass shootings — and political exploitation of them — incentivized already-borderline people to tip over and use mass shootings as a way to express their malice and frustration.
