ChatGPT: Conservative Legislators Oppose Free Markets. That’s the response Sanford Lewis got this weekend from an interaction with ChatGPT that I thought worthy of sharing.
Write a humorous and sarcastic discourse on the manner in which anti-ESG activism by “conservative” legislators contradicts their support for free enterprise and capitalism.
Conservative Legislators Oppose Free Markets: ChatGPT Responded
Ladies and gentlemen, it seems that our beloved conservative legislators have once again found a way to baffle and confuse us all with their latest crusade against Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing. One would think that their love for free enterprise and capitalism would extend to allowing individuals and companies the freedom to invest their money in ways that align with their values, but alas, that is not the case.
Instead, these legislators have decided that the only acceptable form of investing is blindly throwing money into any and all companies, regardless of their impact on the environment or society. Apparently, the idea of considering the long-term sustainability of our planet and the well-being of its inhabitants is just too radical and socialist for their taste.
But wait, it gets even better. These same legislators also claim to be champions of personal responsibility and accountability, yet they are now trying to prevent individuals and companies from taking responsibility for their investments and the impact they have on the world.
So, to sum it up: conservative legislators want to dictate how we invest our money, while simultaneously promoting free enterprise and capitalism. Got it. I’m sure George Washington, Adam Smith, and Ayn Rand are all rolling in their graves at the thought of such hypocrisy.
In conclusion, let us all take a moment to appreciate the irony of anti-ESG activism by conservative legislators and their contradictory support for free enterprise and capitalism. It’s truly a comedic masterpiece worthy of a standing ovation.”

Anti-ESG Self-serving Hypocrites: ChatGPT Responded
Well, it’s quite the conundrum we have here. On the one hand, Republican legislators love to tout the virtues of free enterprise and capitalism. They believe in the power of the market to create wealth and prosperity for all. But on the other hand, they seem to have a real problem with the idea of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns being integrated into business practices.
You see, these legislators believe that the market should be free to do as it pleases, without any pesky regulations or societal pressures to consider things like sustainability or social justice. But when it comes to ESG and “woke” activism, suddenly the market needs to be protected from outside influences.
It’s almost as if these legislators only believe in the power of the market when it aligns with their own narrow ideological agenda. When the market starts to shift towards more progressive values, they suddenly become champions of government intervention.
It’s a classic case of “I believe in the market, except when I don’t.” The real irony is that by opposing ESG and “woke” activism, these legislators are actually stifling the free market by preventing companies from responding to the changing demands of consumers and society. But I guess that’s just the price you have to pay for being a self-serving hypocrite.
