Vivek Ramaswamy, co-founder of Strive, during an interview in Orlando, Fla., on March 8, 2022. (Tal Atzmon/The Epoch Times) The push toward environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards in the private sector is the “single greatest threat” to both democracy and capitalism in the United States, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy said.
Agendas that the government cannot directly achieve via the Constitution are being pushed through the ESG movement in the private sector, he said. The ESG movement is gaining power through “the aggregation of capital” into the hands of a small number of investment firms, with the three biggest players being Vanguard, BlackRock , and State Street. Combined, these three firms manage over $22 trillion, Ramaswamy pointed out in an interview with EpochTV’s “ Crossroads ” program.
“And what those firms do, is that they show up in the boardrooms of American companies buying shares in those companies on behalf of everyday citizens, and then tell those companies that, hey, you have to adopt these social or environmental agendas.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
