Stakeholder Capitalism: A Contrast in Principles

Stakeholder Capitalism

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” – Preamble to the United States Constitution

Greetings my fellow Americans!

In Part 1 of this paper, I highlighted the foundational principles of Stakeholder Capitalism, the ostensible brain child of Klaus Schwab, President and Chairman of the World Economic Forum, and central to the fundamental transformation of humankind and the world more commonly known as The Great Reset. A compare-and-contrast of these with the Principles of Liberty will be the crux of this Part 2, intended to lead us into deeper thinking about the fundamental differences between these worldviews, and how we may better evangelize the virtues of America to those who have either forgotten what truly enabled the United States of America to stand apart from all other forms of society and civilization, or have never been taught.

Let’s review the basic premises of Stakeholder Capitalism:

  • Governments, Companies, Civil Society and the International Community each take their portion of global responsibility for safeguarding all People and the Planet by:
    • Optimizing the Planet’s health
    • Optimizing the well-being of all People everywhere
    • Ensuring that Equitable Prosperity (Governments), Profits (Companies), Purpose (Civil Society) and Peace (International Community) are properly accounted for and harmonized

And let’s summarize the tenets of the 28 Principles of Liberty from The 5000-Year Leap:

  • Natural Law
  • God
  • Divine Law
  • Equal and unalienable rights
  • Human frailty and fallenness
  • Private property rights
  • Free-market economy
  • Limited government
  • Education
  • Family

So, in Stakeholder Capitalism, we have the orientation of bodies of people defining collectively optimal Peace, Purpose, Profits and Prosperity for the whole of society, as well as the negative consequences to those who fail or refuse to abide by the guidelines, regulations, edicts, mandates, etc., collaboratively issued and enforced by these bodies through policing or other means.

In the framework of American Liberty, we have a Creator, laws transcending humankind, equal, unalienable and individual rights to private property and individual life, liberty and pursuit of happiness endowed by that Creator which no intrinsically flawed man is allowed to arbitrarily revoke or cancel, and a focus both on strong families and education in these principles for everyone, for “ourselves and our Posterity” (as stated in our Constitution).

The principles of these contrasting worldviews can be distilled on either side of a fundamental boundary between a civilization which does not recognize or acknowledge the existence, supremacy and guiding hand of a Creator, and one that does. Stakeholder capitalism relies on the superior knowledge of elite men and women about what is required to right the wrongs of People and the Planet, and to decide how the rest of us will live to achieve this vision of life without need, care, worry or discomfort.

Our purpose for existing will be defined for us and appropriately governed, our purchasing power will be regulated, and the world will be free of conflict. Individual rights and families will be extraneous, and education limited to those things required to fulfill that defined and governed purpose, and to ensure that the inherent goodness of all people is neither polluted nor corrupted by thinking that threatens the health of the planet and civil society and the tranquility of the international community.

There will be no more need to rely on an invisible God who has otherwise created a planet capable of being destroyed by humans whose thinking and actions have been corrupted by the wrong-headed notion that all humans are fundamentally flawed and naturally prone to bad things like selfishness and greed. A perfect being having created imperfection is utter nonsense after all, so we must take matters into our own hands, either in becoming one of the ruling elite, or willfully submitting to a life of peace, purpose, prosperity, profits and equitable prosperity as defined by those elite.

For anyone who believes that Stakeholder Capitalism is anything more than a fascist ribbon on the fecal matter of communism, ask your grandparents while you still can, and do your own research on Karl Marx, Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Read George Orwell’s 1984, and The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. For extra credit, open a Bible, as it is also replete with stories of human civilizations who rose and prospered when adhering to the principles put forth in The Ten Commandments and/or Christianity, and subsequently fell as these same principles were later rejected or ignored. And pray that the United States of America will not ultimately be counted among the latter.
