Because it sounds “nice.”
Leftists on the ground think they are fighting corporations, but their social agenda helps corporations expand internationally, and therefore become even more powerful.
Who says? Google does.
Today, Google announced their ‘Legalize Love’ campaign, which aims to influence local laws regarding homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Google plans to begin throwing money around and “exerting pressure” in Poland and Singapore, where its always benevolent eye of Sauron apparently discovered “homophobia.”
- Google’s Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe said: ‘We want our employees who are gay or lesbian or transgender to have the same experience outside the office as they do in the office. It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work.’
- Google will work with other organizations to lobby the governments.
- Palmer-Edgecumbe said: ‘Singapore wants to be a global financial center and world leader and we can push them on the fact that being a global center and a world leader means you have to treat all people the same, irrespective of their sexual orientation.’
- ‘What we have found is that a partnership between corporations and the US government is very powerful.’
The “progressive” left bleeds credibility when it cries about massive corporate influence in government, and then cheers on “ambitious” corporate initiatives designed to grow profits and increase influence by “pushing” countries to do whatever corporations want.
Global corporations find it inconvenient when groups of people want to determine their own values. Corporations want to be able to move
operatives employees around the globe at whim to maximize their profits.
Different roles for males and females are problematic. In the global technocracy, humans are “skill sets” and it serves corporate interests to make males and females interchangeable in every way.
The left wants massive corporate involvement in government whenever something sounds nice, and it wants global corporate money out of politics whenever corporations influence governments in a way that somehow hurts people or sounds mean.
This is hypocritical. You can’t have it both ways.
Either you want corporations to guide public policy by waving money around and making threats, or you don’t.
If you help global corporations get bigger, gain more influence, and undermine the self-determination of nations, how will you be able to stop their influence when you decide they’ve gone too far? Who will tell them they are “too big?” Who will stop them when they have “too much power?”
Certainly not the governments who are already in their pockets, because you applauded them for “pushing” nations to do what they want.
Endorsing corporate coercion under the banner of “human rights” makes the left pro-corporate.
The left needs to be told that. Often.
What a bunch of suckers.
