"Because something is happening here but you don't know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones?"
-- Bob Dylan



Unless you're hiding under a rock you must have noticed that countless corporations and academic institutions and health care institutions are, seemingly all of a sudden, rather aggressively promoting the trans ideology.  This trans ideology says that if you're a girl/woman who thinks you're a boy/man then you ARE a boy/man and society must treat you in every single way as if you are a 100% boy/man, and vice versa for a boy/man who thinks you're a girl/woman. Thus boys/men who say they are a girl/woman have an absolute right to use the girls/women's locker/shower rooms and to compete against girls/women in sports.


This trans ideology says that if a 12 year old tomboy (about 65% of adult women report having been tomboys in childhood, by the way) ever says "I am a boy" then the entire health profession absolutely must affirm (agree with) that little girl and if she says she wants puberty blockers and has learned to say the magic words--"I'll commit suicide otherwise"--to obtain parental consent, then she must be given puberty blockers (which are medically dangerous!) and ditto if she wants a double mastectomy (which is obviously harmful).

This trans ideology says that it is an attack--a hateful attack!--on this tomboy to pass a law making it illegal to provide puberty blockers and double mastectomies to such a child unless it is clearly a medical requirement and not simply related to gender dysphoria.

So, why is this nonsense being pushed by virtually all the major institutions today?

Well, first, let's examine who it serves. The obvious effect of pushing this trans nonsense the way it is done, i.e., on the supposed grounds that it is necessary to avoid being hateful and bigoted (in other words that it is woke), is this. About half of the population, whose main concern when it comes to forming an opinion about social policies is to avoid being bigoted at all costs, supports the trans nonsense. And the other half of the population that isn't afraid to say that nonsense is indeed nonsense opposes it. The result is divide-and-rule of the have-nots, which benefits the haves; it enables the ruling billionaire plutocracy to stay in power. I discuss this new kind of divide-and-rule here. This is WHY the trans nonsense is being pushed.

Now let's look at HOW the ruling billionaire plutocracy makes virtually all its (I say "its" because it controls them) institutions promote this trans nonsense today.

To start with, I call your attention to this interesting Guardian article that reports on evidence that the big banks are, along with the government, the key players involved in social control of the have-nots. Far from just making loans, this Guardian article reveals that banks orchestrated the violent crackdown that killed Occupy Wall Street in 2011:

"It was more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall – so mystifying at the time – was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police. The crackdown, which involved, as you may recall, violent arrests, group disruption, canister missiles to the skulls of protesters, people held in handcuffs so tight they were injured, people held in bondage till they were forced to wet or soil themselves–was coordinated with the big banks themselves." [my emphasis]

The point here is that the ruling class uses banks for social control, not just for lending money. Banks are at the top of the power hierarchy. Virtually all institution need to borrow money from banks to routinely operate: to pay wages and salaries, to buy raw materials, to build a new plant or building, etc. This gives banks control over institutions, private and publicly owned for-profit corporations, universities and even governmental bodies.

Now I'd like to call your attention to a current video talk--at about how banks today are forcing institutions to push the trans nonsense. The speaker has what is in my opinion a wrong understanding about WHY this is happening (he thinks it is to "enable Communists to destroy the United States") but he nonetheless presents a lot a facts about HOW it is happening.

The gist of it is this. The banks favor institutions that have a high ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance)  score and punish institutions with a low score, by giving good or bad terms, respectively, for loans. ESG scores are created based on various other three-letter scores that are in turn created by various woke non-profit organizations. The net result of a lot of such scoring is that in order to get a high ESG score an institution needs to be very pro-actively in support of the trans nonsense. Read more about this in a New York Post article titled, "Go woke or lose bonuses: CEOs are ‘forced’ into Dylan Mulvaney deal system."

This is why, to take just one example, Bud Light promoted the trans Dylan Mulvaney despite the horrible consequences for it financially. Being able to get good terms on loans, in order to do routine things such as purchase raw materials to make the product, is so important that companies will do things that seem otherwise foolish in order to get or maintain a high ESG score. This is why we are seeing trans nonsense being pushed everywhere these days by virtually all the major institutions. It is not because all of a sudden corporate CEOs and university presidents and hospital administrators have woken up and gotten woke.
