The ‘conscious capitalism’ innovator on overregulation, COVID mandates, and why he will be speaking his mind much more freely when he retires.
“They’re marching through the institutions. They’re…taking over education. It looks like they’ve taken over a lot of the corporations. It looks like they’ve taken over the military. And it’s just continuing. You know, I’m a capitalist at heart, and I believe in liberty and capitalism. Those are my twin values. And I feel like, you know, with the way freedom of speech is today, the movement on gun control, a lot of the liberties that I’ve taken for granted most of my life, I think, are under threat.”
A few days ago, I penned an irritated tweet in response to one of the latest happenings on the increasingly heated culture war front in response to the decision of an actress (actor) namedEllen (Elliot) Page. I am employing this awkward and impossible multiple-naming style because it is now apparently mandatory — and probably doing it wrong, nonetheless, as “you’re doing it wrong” is the whole point of what has been made mandatory — but also to make a point.
I have essentially beenbanned from Twitteras a consequence. I say banned, although technicallyI have been suspended. But the suspension will not be lifted unless I delete the “hateful”tweetin question, and I would rather die than do that. And hopefully it will not come to that, although who the hell knows in these increasingly strange days?
