Here is the letter:
Dear Rep. [or Sen.] XXXXXX,
The foundation of the American way of life is freedom from tyranny, which can only exist in a nation that defends the rights, powers, and property of individuals and families. Over the past two centuries, the greatest threats to liberty have come from governments, both foreign and domestic. And from the beaches of Normandy to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Americans have repeatedly conquered the challenges placed before them by those seeking to extinguish or limit individual rights.
However, over the past few years, a new, potentially catastrophic danger has emerged, but not primarily from the halls of Congress or state capitols. This threat to freedom has largely emanated from the boardrooms of the world's wealthiest, most powerful corporations, large financial institutions, central banks, and international organizations like the United Nations and World Economic Forum.
In an attempt to secure vast amounts of wealth and influence over society, corporations, bankers, and investors, working closely with key government officials, have launched a unified effort to impose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards on most of the industrialized global economy. (ESG standards are also referred to as "sustainable investment" or "stakeholder capitalism.") According to a report by accounting firm KPMG, thousands of companies, located in more than 50 countries, already have ESG systems in place, including 82 percent of large companies in the United States. 1
ESG standards are designed to create a "great reset of capitalism" and to "revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions." 2 The way ESG supporters plan to enact these radical changes is by using ESG schemes to alter the way businesses and investments are evaluated, so that instead of focusing on the quality of goods and services, profits, and other traditional economic metrics, companies—including financial institutions—are evaluated largely on their commitment to social justice and environmental causes, and then assigned scores so that companies can be compared, rewarded, or potentially punished.
For example, the metrics developed by the International Business Council rank businesses, in part, on the "percentage of employees per employee category, by age group, gender and other indicators of diversity (e.g. ethnicity)." 3 In other words, a company with the "wrong" ratio of Asian to Hispanic workers could be given a lower ESG score than its competitors with the "right" ratio, even if that business provides consumers with better products or services and earns higher profits.
Other metrics include companies' "carbon footprint," the size of a business's facilities, and the "percentage of active workforce covered under collective bargaining agreements," among dozens of others. 4 Facebook has been given a relatively low ESG score by some agencies for not censoring enough speech.
The ESG "stakeholder capitalism" system has become popular because central banks, governments, and wealthy investors have tied trillions of dollars to ESG commitments. The Principles of Responsible Investment group—which has a close relationship with the United Nations and has worked for more than a decade to get investors, governments, pensions, and businesses to agree to support ESG 5—claims its signatories control more than $100 trillion in assets.6
In recent months, many of the world's largest banks, including the six biggest banking institutions in the United States, have not only committed to pursuing many ESG goals in their own businesses and supply chains, but also in all of their financing activities, which means that those businesses that refuse to comply with ESG mandates will soon lose access to vital sources of capital. 7,8,9 And this is just the beginning. The Biden administration effectively killed regulations in January that would have stopped financial institutions from targeting industries based on many of the metrics in ESG systems, opening the door to further discrimination.10 Financial services companies like Merrill Lynch have started to hand out ESG scores to individual investors, based on the companies in their portfolios.11
Corporations, operating with ESG concerns in mind, have started, in an unprecedented way, to engage in political activities, participate in radical social justice causes, and impose draconian restrictions on privacy rights. Coca-Cola has implemented racial training seminars asking workers to be "less white," so that they can be "less oppressive," "less arrogant," and "less ignorant." 12 Hundreds of large corporations and their leaders, including Microsoft President Brad Smith and Apple CEO Tim Cook, have made public condemnations of Georgia's new election security law or other, similar proposals.13 Social media companies and tech giants like Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Amazon have banned or limited the speech of millions of Americans, including politicians and political activists.14 Corporations and airlines are considering vaccine "passport" mandates for their customers.15
Nearly all of these activities would undoubtedly be forbidden by U.S. courts if they were to be put into place by government agencies. But because ESG systems technically operate apart from government — even though they are heavily influenced by government spending and central banks' monetary policies—corporations can impose these dangerous assaults on liberty, engaging in an end-run around the Bill of Rights.
Our free society and the American way of life will not survive this "great reset" unless policymakers put rules into place that ensure banks and corporations, which benefit immensely from special legal and tax advantages, cannot unjustly discriminate against nonviolent individuals and legal businesses. If powerful financial institutions, international organizations, corporations, and governments are allowed to work together to control society to their benefit, then our "rights" will become nothing more than meaningless scribbles on old, fading pieces of parchment.
As a member of Congress, you are duty-bound to defend the rights of all Americans against such attacks on freedom. Failing to do so would be an egregious violation of the oath you swore upon entering Congress. I write this letter to you today to ask that you work as quickly as possible to stop this "great reset" of the United States—before it's too late to reverse course.
