I have a theory, as corporations could profit and help the rise of left wing politics.
As we know, the president of the United States of America and its government are right wing, even far right wing, even more obvious they have a disdain for global politics.
Surprisingly the institution that has done the most these past years for inclusiveness and rights, for immigration policies, for LGBTQIAP+ rights remains some important corporations.
Being a corporation doesn't mean all your existence must be purely all about capitalism, but also acting to provide and distribute wealth and a wage to the rest of the world, and weigh against a totalitarian government, exposing it on the media.
Social media are corporations yet they are fighting the far rights who yell "freedom of speech" while vomiting their bigoted, racist, islamophobic or antisemite, fascist speeches, but despite the right wing government acting in favor of an obsolete document that will defend their right to do this, and own a stockpile of weapons, the corporations can do this.
I predict the only way to survive populism and right wing governance, especially in European Union as things are going (Italy, Poland, Austria, Hungary being dominated by the far right) is through the idea that globalization, communication and corporations CAN and DOES have a positive influence.
Corporations can, and does fund social justice and social movements, and left-wing organizations across the world. Their influence is not usually negative as they are the gears driving social progress and innovation, networks of communications which is nothing less than a form of socialism.
Because by definition, without healthy, diverse people, corporations just can not exist, so just to be simple, if you cannot get rights from a government, it is legitimate that a corporation or a non-elected organization does it for the people. This ideal is really Marxist, but instead of seizing the means of production, the means of production are already determined to serve the people.
Excellent example about firearms, gun control in America, since the government doesn't act, it is important to note that Bank Of America, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan and Citi Group all had programs to ensure to stop the funding of firearms market. This is ethical and this is the right thing to do. The responsible thing to do, to ensure the society to persist, and this is efficient.
Corporations are people and people need corporations, the possibility to work together with less capitalism is here, and this is the future, letting corporations establish a form of governance without the issues of a non-equal capitalist system.
