John Mackey, CEO and co-founder of Whole Foods, believes that socialism is on the march and taking over institution after institution.
Mackey describes himself as a "free market capitalist" and believes in "conscious capitalism." He called our economic system the "greatest thing humanity has ever done, and he was an early and vocal opponent of Obamacare.
"My concern is that I feel like socialists are taking over," Mackey said on the Reason Magazine podcast on Thursday. "They're marching through the institutions. They're…taking over education. It looks like they've taken over a lot of the corporations. It looks like they've taken over the military. And it's just continuing."
