Kevin Williamson: Why Corporate Leaders Become Progressive Activists

Given that progressives despise corporations, why are so many corporate leaders progressives? The National Review's Kevin Williamson cites writer William H. White, who interviewed dozens of CEOs in the 1950s. He found that the psychology and operations of large corporations impose rationality on "unruly" free markets, culture and family. Kevin says that replacing spontaneity with political order is the essence of progressivism. It's a trend that goes back more than a hundred years. The robber barons of the nineteenth century were not big fans of free market capitalism either. Originally aired on Cam & Co 03/13/17.
