Why Is Coca-Cola Exploding?

by | Apr 10, 2021 |

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.

Our Nation’s Greatest Threat is the Fascist Democrat

Our Nation’s Greatest Threat is the Fascist Democrat

Communists, fascists, and democratic socialists get along in America for one reason, and one reason only: they all hate free markets, and free markets are what emerges when you have free people. The notion of a ‘moral and intellectual elite’ being in charge is no different than the argument that we need those of noble birth to control us – we are still having the same debate we had before our nation was founded, with a lot of particularly younger Americans wanting to return to serfdom, without really knowing what all that entails…

One Year to Victory, the Communist Takeover of America

One Year to Victory, the Communist Takeover of America

Along with the ongoing war on police initiated by Barack Obama, the infiltration of American government institutions has been well underway for many years. All one has to do is look back on the photo of the West Point cadet a few years ago who posed for a graduation day photograph. He was holding his hat (Cover, for all you military folks), so that his concealed handwritten note on the inside of the Cover could be seen. The note read “Communism Will Win.”

Biden Killing America’s Energy Security With Sea Level Hysteria

Biden Killing America’s Energy Security With Sea Level Hysteria

If Biden’s intention in promoting the sea level scare were simply to boost his popularity among the extreme left of his party, his misguided concerns wouldn’t be much of a problem. But the president’s goal is clearly to stop all fossil fuel use and ultimately subjugate us with flimsy and environmentally damaging wind and solar power, requiring energy rationing for everyone…

The Reason the Patriot Act No Longer Works

The Reason the Patriot Act No Longer Works

We must realize the power of arrest now basically lies in Marxist hands, and they will use it. Already they have perverted the definition of who is and who is not a “terrorist.” It’s no longer the foreign Islamic Jihadists who killed over 3000 Americans in a single day, who are the terrorist!” To suggest is to be labeled Islamaphobic, but Oath Keepers, former American soldiers, and policemen still willing to keep the oaths they took to Protect and Defend the…

To Secede, or Not To Secede, That is the Question for Oregon and Idaho

To Secede, or Not To Secede, That is the Question for Oregon and Idaho

The Oregon vote shows both the desire of the people to change and their willingness to fight for their land. Is that enough? As of the writing, I don’t know how the legislature of Oregon will respond to this vote. Are the legislators willing to trap people in an unhappy situation to further their political goals? We’ve seen that before in world history, and it doesn’t end well.

John Kerry is a Consequential Internal Security Threat to America

John Kerry is a Consequential Internal Security Threat to America

John Kerry co-chaired the 2020 presidential campaign Biden-Sanders unity climate change task force with the socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., which provided the framework for a “Green New Deal,” since repackaged as the Democrat “infrastructure” plan. Kerry has a habit of being in the center of many of the worst policies that pose major security risks for America…

Biden, G7 & the China Conundrum

Biden, G7 & the China Conundrum

The only way to confront the Chinese colossus is by combining the populations, economic and military powers of the USA, Europe, Russia, and India. Excluding Biden’s mental lapses and gaffes, the G7 leaders had a good time amongst themselves at enormous taxpayers’ expenses and returned home, not only empty-handed but empty-minded for completely ignoring all the following items…

5 Tools That Will Help You Tame Anxiety

5 Tools That Will Help You Tame Anxiety

Emotions are actually intelligent indicators meant to get your attention and provide energy and information. Anxiety as an emotional symptom is a sign you are not present. Ultimately, you can retrain your mind with consistent self-care tools and by prioritizing yourself to take the time to reset when your emotions are getting overly amped up…
