I’m not optimistic that any revolt of the corporations will come. Their leadership is part of a cultural elite that has perpetrated this disaster and found numerous ways to profit from it. But Katya Sedgwick does find signs of hope in Union Pacific’s response to legalized looting in California.
As ordinary people have adjusted to rampant criminality, San Francisco-based corporations have behaved in a most cowardly manner, choosing to virtue signal over serving their presumed missions. Corporate America embraced BLM in the wake of George Floyd riots, and big money rarely speaks out against the chaos imposed from above. Some wholeheartedly support it. For instance, in 2018 Salesforce aggressively campaigned for San Francisco’s Proposition C, which levied a tax on businesses to eliminate homelessness. The measure was approved by the voters, but the city’s mayor recently declared a state of emergency, in effect admitting that the so-called “homelessness crisis” is not an economic issue but a law enforcement one.
At a time when the inbred corporate culture bows down to every diversity, equity, and inclusion dictate and guards their elite status with woke jargon, it is nice to see that there exists a corporation that has stuck to its frequently misunderstood mission, to deliver goods to customers.
Sedgwick is referring to Union Pacific which has directly challenged Chesa Boudin and the entire criminal justice reform culture of criminal impunity.
I find it refreshing that there is a corporation in the United States willing to command resources to defend its own purpose, she concludes.
The question is how bad do things have to get before corporations start to revolt against the social justice regime they’re subsidizing?
