The Koch Brothers are a pair of wealthy far rightwing businessmen with extreme beliefs for how politics and economics ought to function in America that is contrary to the best interests of most people.
For many years they have successfully operated behind the scenes in both business, academia, and politics, quietly pushing their extremist views through a network of fronts.
This is a subreddit to keep track of news of the dealings of the Koch Brothers and their associates. The influence they are buying with their Dark Money network of academic institutes, think tanks, charities abusing their status, fake grassroots front groups. And Government appointees. All pushing their radical far rightwing agenda, all concealing the true nature of their funding.
To highlight the effects on society as their politicians pass legislation favourable to them and harmful to many others.
And to educate people and discuss ways of organising to counter them.
