Why Is Coca-Cola Exploding?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Everything is now political. Sigh. Why can’t I just buy a Coke? Why do I have to listen to Coca-Cola executives’ sock-puppets mouth the words fed them by their Progressive / Woke / BLM / Democratic Socialists ventriloquists? Why can’t I just take a plane trip? Why can’t I just watch a baseball game? 

Say what we tell you to say, or we’ll cancel you. And your little dog, too!

In this employment climate of “cancel culture,” employees are routinely fired and prevented from getting another job if they say anything the elite big brothers and big sisters don’t like. Contributing to the paranoia, what they find acceptable changes daily. Welcome to the nightmare world of Orwell’s 1984, where the main character Winston Smith observes, “History has stopped. Nothing exists except the endless present in which the party is always right.” Winston’s job was deleting from news and history records all mention of people the party decided they didn’t like. People who had been party heroes the day before.

In their eagerness to avoid being canceled, the CEOs of Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines have made the obligatory public statement of condemnation of Georgia’s new election laws, which require the voter to show an ID card. The new party line is that requiring an ID to vote is voter suppression. In a grand symbolic gesture, Major League Baseball executives moved the All-Star Game from Georgia to Colorado. Colorado also requires voters to show ID, but that doesn’t matter. We, the MLB sock puppets, took action, even if the action was pointless. We showed them!

 ID Cards at Delta Boarding Gates. Traveler Suppression?

Of course, the other absurdity is that Delta Air Lines requires all passengers to show ID before being allowed onto the airplane. Is this traveler suppression? These execs can’t afford to be consistent, just obedient. When their political masters tell them to say the sky is green, not blue, they will obediently say it.

Political Officers in Every Corporation

Some of us remember the first Tom Clancy adventure novel, The Hunt for Red October. A political officer was embedded in every unit of the Soviet Navy. His job? Not to help run the ship or submarine, but to ensure loyalty to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Enlisted men and officers suspected of disloyalty could be sent to a gulag in Siberia. Hard labor, little food, freezing climate. (See The Gulag Archipelago by gulag survivor Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.)

In today’s world ruled by the Democratic Socialists, there are also political officers embedded in American corporations. Many are on the board of directors. If the CEO does not toe the party line, she will be denounced. If fired, she will find herself in the gulag of the unemployable.

Virtue Signaling by CEOs. Don’t We Have Politicians for That?

So, a CEO is no longer in the business of producing a soft drink that people will enjoy drinking; he or she is in the business of mouthing the latest politically correct condemnations of deplorable people and deplorable actions, as decided by the Democratic Socialist elites. Don’t we have politicians to do that?

In the business world, corporations who devote resources to things unrelated to what the customer wants to buy will eventually go defunct. Kodak insisted on producing camera film instead of selling digital cameras. Customers wanted to buy digital cameras. Kodak as a camera company is now mostly gone. To build a viable business, focus on what the customer wants, not what you want.

Beverage Choice, or Political Contribution?

Prediction: the more resources Coke and other corporations devote to political causes, the more their product will cost. Customers will choose other products. Buying Coke becomes a contribution to the Democrat Party, not a beverage choice. 

Donation Suppression?

One contributing corporate practice that does not add value to customers is donations to charities and causes: homelessness, diversity, hunger, etc. If I am a customer or shareholder, I prefer to choose my own charity or cause to contribute to. When a corporation uses sales revenue or shareholder dividends to contribute to a cause chosen by the CEO, that corporation is using my money for a cause I did not choose myself. I would call that donation suppression. 

The solution? Stop corporate donations and either decrease your prices and/or increase dividends to your shareholders. Stick to your business. Make soft drinks—transport travelers by air. Entertain sports fans with baseball games. Leave politics to the politicians.

Michael McCarthy

Michael McCarthy is a life-long student of liberty, limited government, and free-market economics. As a young man, he taught and crewed at the Flint School aboard the 156’ two-masted schooner Te Vega sailing in Europe. Atlas Shrugged was required reading.

In 2010 he saw the acceleration of big government control in politics, business, and culture. Hoping to reach the next generation through fiction entertainment, he wrote the prophetic novel The Noah Option. Powerful politicians target brilliant black scientist Dr. Grace Washington. Her story continues in the sequel, The Rainbow Option, when powerful elites unleash a deadly virus on unsuspecting Americans, and Grace must develop a cure. In The Timshel Option, ISIS invades and creates The New England Caliphate, making women second-class citizens. One teenage girl fights back.

"The things I predicted in my novels came true in the nightly news. Our country is in trouble. Like Abraham Lincoln, I hope for a new birth of freedom,” says McCarthy.

The Dehumanization of the Founding Fathers

The Dehumanization of the Founding Fathers

Since the use of a bioweapon against American citizens is as clear as day… the Democrat bioweapon may be considered by some as a justifiable trigger for instituting the program for dealing with tyranny and despotism outlined by Thomas Jefferson. And it is for that reason, Jefferson is feared by the Neo-Nazi Democrats. Jefferson provides a way out…

Beware of Laboring for the Food that Perishes

Beware of Laboring for the Food that Perishes

The work environment itself is now oppressive for most because of the Coronamania hoax. And our hard-earned dollars don’t stretch nearly as far as in the past because of rapidly rising inflation. Joe Biden team, thanks for nothing! Working more hours just means paying more taxes for wasteful causes and oppressive changes to suit the Communist administration’s agenda…

The Weaponization of Federal Agencies Against American Freedoms

Ironically, the same administration issuing vaccine mandates for government workers and military personnel imposes no requirements upon countless unchecked and unvaccinated illegal southern border crossers from all over the planet who are being transferred at taxpayer expense to infect neighborhoods and burden medical health care, school programs, and other community services near you…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Henry Ealy

Which option carries the lesser risk – to stop at two jabs, or to go for jab 3 – with the unknown side effects and vaccine damage risk? What is the website to legal team and forms to get religious exemptions for the Covid vaccine? I’m a pilot with American Airlines. We are being forced to get “vaccinated.” If you had to choose, which one would you take?

The United States of Emergency

The United States of Emergency

We are ruled by enemies of the Constitution, and it is incumbent upon us, and upon our friends in other nations, to take such steps as are required to abolish the government of the United States, and to institute new governance, laying our government’s foundation on the principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to us shall seem most likely to affect our safety and happiness…

23 Scientists, 14 Countries, 1 Result – UN Undermines the Impact of the Sun

The quest to understand how the Earth’s climate is connected to the Sun was originally studied by the ancient Greeks and Chinese. Indeed, it is one of the oldest science subjects. The new paper blows open the mystery and explains why it has been so difficult to make true scientific advances in today’s “woke” environment dominated by politically-correct, but scientifically flawed narratives…
