The New Axis of Evil

Here is a truly smart Millennial: Vivek Ramaswamy, summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard College with an A.B. in biology and a J.D. from Yale Law School. Credentialed in addition to competent: founder of Campus Venture Network, a technology company acquired in 2009 by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation,  partner at QVT Financial where he managed the firm's biotech portfolio, and founder of the biopharmaceutical company Roivant Sciences where he served as CEO until this year when he stepped aside and now serves as executive chairman. Author of just released Woke, Inc: Inside Corporate America's Social Justice Scam.

And he’s only 35. So basically just another over-achieving child of immigrants brought up in a small town in Ohio.

His book exposes America’s real axis of evil: woke millennials and big banks. He described this evil empire last night for Tucker Carlson in lightening speed. (begins at 21:01)

Closed captioning couldn’t keep up with him so you may need to watch twice. Here’s my abstract:

When a  bunch of woke Millennials got together with a bunch of big banks they gave birth to ‘woke capitalism’ which they called Occupy Wall Street and immediately put for up for adoption.

At that point Wokeness became supercharged with the potency of capitalism and moved from a fringe theory in the academy to an alarming and powerful force in the marketplace.

It was an arranged marriage based not on love but rather mutual disdain which quickly moved to form a threesome with China to advance all parties needs, wants and desires. It is being used by China to undermine the moral standing of the U.S. on the world stage. This allows China to play us like a Chinese mandolin; they roll out the ‘red’ carpet for firms like Nike, the NBA, Marriot, and Disney that agree to openly criticize the U.S. and keep their yaps shut about China’s human rights abuses. Otherwise, they will be met with a Chinese wall prohibiting their companies access to the market.

The birth of this woke industrial complex is 10 times more frightful than Thomas Hobbes government leviathan and not the least bit benign. Imagine when the two combine: the mind explodes.

Ramaswamy explains the basis for his book further here.

Wokeness has remade American capitalism in its own image.

This new trend has created a major cultural shift in America. It’s not just ruining companies. It’s polarizing our politics. It’s dividing our country to a breaking point. Worst of all, it’s concentrating the power to determine American values in the hands of a small group of capitalists, rather than in the hands of the American citizenry at large, which is where the dialogue about social values belongs. That’s not America, but a distortion of it.

I sense this very intelligent, very serious young man will serve a very important role in America’s future. I know I’m getting his book in order to further educate myself on how to fight it.

Oh, and for the record:

trump was right

Especially China.
