The Math Ain’t Mathin’ – The Harsh Realities of DEI and ESG: A Reckoning for Companies and Society

Listen up, folks. We need to dissect the rotten core of DEI and ESG practices. These concepts are riddled with faulty reasoning and poor logic, and once you see the truth, there's no going back. If you already get it, skip ahead. But if you need a critical wake-up call, buckle up.

The Harsh Truth: DEI and ESG Are Inherently Duplicitous

If you can grasp basic critical thinking and truly understand the premises behind these ideas, you'd reject them in a heartbeat. But in our fast-paced world, it's easy to get caught up in short-sightedness and toxic narratives. DEI and ESG have slithered their way into corporations and society under the guise of social progress. But make no mistake – these are poisonous philosophies that nurture hypocrisy, obfuscate reality, and steamroll over sovereignty. It's time to rip off the Band-Aid and expose them for what they really are.

I. Rules for Thee, Not for Me

Both ESG and DEI require giving "special" people permission to break the very rules they claim to enforce, committing the sins they claim to prevent.

ESG – Special folks jet to Davos, eat meat, burn fuel, and live lavishly, all while telling others not to travel, eat meat, burn fuel, or live well.

DEI – Special folks are empowered to discriminate against the "oppressors" based on skin color, gender, heritage, and ethnicity, in order to stop discrimination based on skin pigment, gender, heritage, and ethnicity.

Is anyone sensing a pattern of hypocrisy here?

II. Obfuscation of Metrics

When scrutinized, the metrics and models behind these concepts lack causal connections, relying instead on emotional narratives.

DEI – It handwaves away the fundamental math, claiming diversity of skin pigment alone (not background, experience or skill) gives businesses an edge. Read that again and let it sink in.

ESG – Over 130 methods to measure it? How convenient! No standard measurement, just vague principles, foggy math, and ever-shifting targets based on the politics of the day.

III. Promotion of Global Authoritarianism

"You will own nothing and be happy."

  • Klaus Schwab, Bond Supervillain, Enemy of the GI Joes, and head of the World Economic Forum

ESG wants you judged not by national standards, but by a global one dictated by a limited elite who frequent Davos.

DEI and ESG share this subversive principle: promoting global authoritarianism and undermining sovereignty and individual choice for nations, organizations, and individuals.

The Flawed Logic in Action

"Don't like my opinion? You're an oppressor. Your courts don't agree? They're racist colonial empires."

This logic demands rejecting fundamental legal systems and tearing down the fabric of society.

If you discard boundaries, borders, and common law, what's left? Just a vague sense of "global justice" ripe for authoritarian control. It's psychological warfare, subverting nations from within.

ESG – A Tangled Web of Greenwashing and Politics

Social Responsibility? A nebulous concept defined by those in power and those controlling communication through censorship.

The environment? Merely a spotlight on political opponents or entities to be brought in line, shrouding their actual activities in darkness.

ESG's Impact:

  • Talk, greenwashing deals, but new phones pitched yearly, no chargers included.
  • Eroding brand equity and trust among stakeholders (customers, employees, families, shareholders).
  • Encouraging one-world authoritarian governments, antithetical to sovereignty and individual liberty.
  • Advocating censorship, entitlement, victimization, and criminal behavior to "right wrongs."

DEI's Impact:

  • Hiring/promoting based on discrimination, not merit.
  • Lack of operational integrity, inconsistency between claims and actions.
  • Eroding brand equity and stakeholder trust.
  • Signaling the organization doesn't prioritize ability, creating a divisive culture of mistrust and victimization.
  • Eroding incentives for performance and retention, driving away top talent.
  • Dividing the customer base by broadcasting divisiveness and taking political sides.
  • Encouraging entitlement, discrimination, victimization, and crime in society.

IV. The Built-In Fallback Excuse: "It's for the Greater Good"

The anti-performance, anti-material nature of ESG and DEI is rationalized by claiming it's "better for society." But under scrutiny, you realize these philosophies subvert free society, undermine profit goals and sustainable operations. The last-ditch argument? "It's better for business because it's better for society." By no objective measure is this true.

The deeper you dig, the more excuses and obfuscation you find.

The COVID-19 Pandemic: A Test Case

We saw this behavior unfold during the pandemic, with people labeled "essential" and "non-essential," determining who could operate a business (accumulate wealth and financial freedom) and who couldn't. COVID-19 policies were extensions of DEI and ESG in action, accelerating their adoption disguised as "community guidelines," "fighting misinformation," "conspiracy theories," and "harmful content" – all attempts to destroy stages of scrutiny.

Many employees got the message: toe the company line or else, so they stopped posting online altogether. Others rejected it, and it cost them everything.

Side Note 1: Ask the Victims

Staying silent while others fall victim to these policies makes you complicit. Talk to nurses, military personnel, truck drivers, and business owners devastated by these practices. Have 20 conversations and report back. Pretending there are no victims, or that they’re “collateral damage” vs. intentional is yet another clear and present issue with the mental concepts.

Side Note 2: Why Are Champions Deleting Their Tweets?

Big consulting firms billed countless hours encouraging the adoption of this crap but go MIA when the results come in. Use the Wayback Machine to see which organizations and big consulting firms (among the Big 4) advocated for this stuff from 2020 onward. If they're proud of these policies, why delete all the tweets and media promoting them?

The Ends Justify the Means?

Bottom line, if the cause is just, why don't its champions have to uphold it? The entire premise crumbles when the principles cannot be upheld by anyone. It becomes a philosophical and psychological weapon, advocating to remove the voices of an "oppressor" class, only to instantly become the new oppressor class. It wrongs individuals in the name of an untenable "greater good" for some other group someday in the distant future. It's a scam across the board.

Wake up, people. DEI and ESG are viruses infecting organizations and society alike. It's time to reject the flawed logic and destructive impacts before it's too late.
