The Hedonisia Activist Entrepreneur Approach to Capitalism
How to create a business based on your values
An activist entrepreneur works within the system on feminist, environmental, and other socially progressive causes, both locally and internationally.
Traditionally young people and many progressives such as environmentalists or feminists, argue that capitalism is exploitative. And all too often it is.
Sadly, our current president, Donald Trump embodies nearly every stereotype of negative capitalism. Corruption, nepotism, bribery, slumlord, shady real estate deals. His list of sleazy capitalist practices goes on and on.
However, as we teach in our Video eCourse the Activist Entrepreneur, capitalism does not have to be this way.
Trade is the oldest of human enterprises and has great potential for good as well as corporate evil. In the Age of the Internet with its limitless potential, the youth of today have an opportunity to change capitalism from within.
As an Activist Entrepreneur you can:
- Create a business embodying Community, Activist, Feminist, Environmental or EcoSex principles
- Address challenges on the planet and creates meaningful jobs!
- Live Actively and Pleasurably with Conscious Capitalism
In a time of high youth unemployment, few opportunities, and student debt, young people would serve themselves and the world better by making money in ethical activist businesses aligned with their values. Then they can play the same role as the oil companies do now, except they will be lobbying for good causes.
Progressive Political Capitalism
The marijuana movement used capitalism to change the system from within. It took decades but now America, a conservative ‘War Against Drugs’ nation, has legal marijuana.
An Activist Entrepreneur has politics ingrained in the DNA of its company operations and Mission Statement. Businesses are meant to be around for a long time. It often takes forever to change laws in a democratic system.
This is why corporations and democracy work so well together for good and bad causes. However, at present in America, it is the Koch brothers, oil companies, chemical companies, and Big Pharma who lobby the most. They are can afford it as ‘the cost of doing business’.
However, many feminist, sex-positive, and environmental movements still operate mostly in the realm of non-profits. Non-profits will never have the lobbying power of Big Pharma or Big Oil! The key is to create ‘good corporations’. Green corporations. Feminist corporations. Ethical Sex-Positive corporations. Fundraising and lobbying events will be totally different.
As marijuana developed into a viable and established industry, those in the business created a ‘ganja lobby!’ There is already a Solar and Wind lobby because they are making money! Young techies, the founders of Google, Apple, Paypal, Facebook, Microsoft have done some bad things but also supported very good causes.
