“What we stand for is a rebirth of the promise in the Declaration of Independence.”
In the sixth episode of my interview with Charles Koch, Chairman and CEO of Koch Industries and author of the great book “Good Profit,” Charles reveals Koch Industries’ new “What We Stand For Campaign.” As Charles explains, what he and Koch Industries stand for is a rebirth of the principles and promises of our Founding. Our Founders believed that all men are created equal, but, as we know, those principles weren’t fully applied throughout our country’s history. Charles sees three areas in particular within our modern political system where we need to fully apply the principles of our Founding:
– Tearing down barriers to opportunity
– Ending special treatment for the politically connected
– Protecting and defending free expression
If our country can unite to accomplish these reforms, Charles believes we can make enormous strides in granting equality and opportunity for all.
