Since when does making money make you evil? All those woke people want you to believe you're part of the social problem just because you want to make a profit. This whole ESG is virtue signaling. If I (or anyone) want to upgrade to first class for that extra leg room with United Airlines, I should be able to do that if I'm willing and have the money. United makes a profit, I get what I want.
Here's part of the transcript of Andy Puzder, Senior Fellow at the School of Public Policy at Pepperdine University. He gave a lecture about what ESG is and why it's a problem. Full Video below.
"Why do millions of people invest in retirement accounts?
The answer is obvious: to have money to live on when they're no longer working.
The best way for those accounts to grow is to invest in companies that make a profit. Less profit for those companies means less money for retirement. This might seem like common sense but it's becoming less common, thanks to a new investment strategy called ESG. ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. If you're wondering what that means, you're not alone.
Generally, it means that a company's first concern should no longer be how much money it makes, but rather how much social good it does. In other words, get woke, or get shamed.
If you're an oil company, for example, you're out of luck because, by the nature of your business, it's assumed you're destroying the planet. Never mind that you're powering homes and hospitals. That doesn't count.
In fact, if you're a company just trying to make a profit, you're the problem."
