February 22, 2021

In Episode XXVI of Ill Literacy, Tim Benson talks with Stephen R. Soukup about his new book, "The Dictatorship of Woke Capital: How Political Correctness Captured Big Business."

Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Stephen R. Soukup, senior commentor, vice president, and publisher of The Political Forum to discuss his new book, The Dictatorship of Woke Capital: How Political Correctness Captured Big Business. They chat about socially responsible investing, the “shareholder vs. stakeholder” debate, and how major corporations have been taken over by progressives and how they use their economic leverage to change society to help match their values. They also discuss what those on the right—individuals, investors, businesses, and legislators—can do to help fight back.
