Shopify SLAMS “Woke” Culture?! Shopify CEO Says Company is APOLITICAL!…

“Shopify CEO Tobias Lütke has issued a statement that the company is FOR PROFIT and should be APOLITICAL. This after Coinbase and Basecamp issued similar statements. After years of pandering to Twitter, will tech companies finally get a clue, or will anti-capitalist activists actively try to burn these companies down from within?

Here’s what he said…

“We are trying to create a world class product that gives superpowers to the merchants that we are obsessed over,” Lütke wrote. “Everything Shopify does is to accomplish this, and everyone at Shopify should be able to describe how their job, through a series of direct or indirect steps, furthers this mission.”

“Shopify, like any other for-profit company, is not a family,” he continued. “The very idea is preposterous. You are born into a family. You never choose it, and they can’t un-family you. The dangers of ‘family thinking’ are that it becomes incredibly hard to let poor performers go. Shopify is a team, not a family.”

“We cannot solve every societal problem here,” Lütke warns. “Shopify’s worldview is well documented—we believe in liberal values and equality of opportunity. Sometimes we see opportunities to help nudge these causes forward. We do this because this directly helps our business and our merchants and not because of some moralistic overreach.”

The CEO reiterated his commitment to a meritocracy-based employment system, driven by efficiency, not politics.

“We will always have compassion for team members in truly difficult situations… [but] we need to remind everyone that like any other competitive (sports) team, it matters how you show up every day and contribute to the team’s success,” he wrote. “Beyond straight performance output, everyone that engages in endless Slack trolling, victimhood thinking, us-vs-them divisiveness, and zero sum thinking must be seen for the threat they are: they break teams.”

“We want to build one of the best companies in the world,” Lütke concluded. “We want everyone to have a shot at bettering their lot through entrepreneurship… when we succeed in our mission, millions of merchants do better. Millions of people find employment. We have the opportunity to make that tens and even hundreds of millions in the future.”

“‘Rich Thanks To Racism’ a new book exposes Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and the Koch Brothers, all secretly funding organizations to uphold and fortify systemic racism. John Iadarola and Jim Freeman break it down on The Damage Report.

“More people than ever are recognizing the destructive impact of systemic racism and the urgent need to dismantle it. In a groundbreaking examination of “strategic racism,” Rich Thanks to Racism (Cornell University Press) explains what and who stand in the way.

Jim Freeman details how the driving force behind the public policies that continue to devastate communities of color across the United States are Corporate America and Wall Street executives who profit mightily from racial inequities. He dissects the cruel and deeply harmful policies within the education, criminal justice, and immigration systems to discover their origins, why they persist, and the hidden strategy behind them. Freeman uncovers billions of dollars in aligned investments by Bill Gates, Charles Koch, Mark Zuckerberg, and a handful of other billionaires that are dismantling public school systems across the United States. He exposes how the greed of prominent US corporations and big banks was instrumental in creating the world’s largest prison population and our many anti-immigrant policies. Freeman also demonstrates how “racism profiteers” defend these injustices by pitting white communities against communities of color, obscuring the fact that the struggles they face are deeply interconnected.”

“A viral video shows a Kentucky father begging his daughter — and offering her cash — to avoid the coronavirus vaccine.

The video was posted on TikTok by a woman named Brianna, who said her father offered to pay her $2,000 if she wouldn’t get the vaccine, and shows him sobbing and lamenting that she and her mother, who had already been vaccinated, would be dead from the side effects by this year’s flu season.

“It is not a vaccine,” he says. “It is a human trial, it is genetic therapy. It’s not a vaccine, it doesn’t fall under the category of a vaccine. It’s not FDA approved.”

“This documentary follows three British families are taking the bold decision to take their children out of school and bring them up without rules. These “extreme unschoolers” are part of a growing movement that believes that giving kids the absolute freedom of no bedtimes, no naughty step and no boundaries will help them grow up to become happier, more responsible people – but is it really true?

Mother of three Jenna’s 13 year old son Archie juggles fire and plays the drums, but seven years after being taken out of school he struggles to read and write and the grandparents are so concerned that they’re paying for him to have a tutor.

Vicky and Mike have just started their new lifestyle, and recently taken seven year old Jessica out of school. She now dies her own hair and makes her own meals, and appears to be thriving in a her new life without rules.

Gemma and Lewis have seven gorgeous children. None of them have been brought up to follow the rules. Life is a long series of playtimes and picnics with the kids doing whatever they like, but now a bombshell has dropped: eldest boy Finlay has now decided he wants to try school…”
