What is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation really doing in Africa? A recent Goalkeepers report entitled “Is Poverty Inevitable” attracted my attention this week. With characteristic billionaire-level content writers in tow, the world’s most famous philanthropic couple publish a warning on African birth rates, poverty, and disease. Their foundation’s real agenda has very little to do with altruism.
The problem with Bill Gates and his foundation is that no PR guru in the world can conceal what is pointedly obvious to anyone reading their narratives. The basic tenets of this foundation’s efforts are BS. “There are too many African babies; they’re going to die.” This statement is counterbalanced with “Let’s give out more drugs to save their lives, and then educate these masses so they can be more productive, so Africa’s economy can grow.” And grow, and grow, and grow to be another Singapore, or China, or Southeast Asian manufacturing hub? It’s doublespeak. Or is Africa just going to be a consumer market powered on air and service related jobs? I hope you see my point here. The Bill & Melinda report goes on in big bold letters:
“The basis of our optimism about the world has always been our belief in the power of innovation to redefine what’s possible.”
The rich couple, or their public relations and marketing team one, continue by citing their deceased friend, friend, Swedish academic and statistician, Hans Rosling, whom they cite as if he were Jesus in a sermon in his description of people’s different standards of living. Rosling used the metaphor that of how people travel: from sandals to bicycles to cars to airplanes. The way the paragraph fits together lets me know someone with a marketing background probably wrote it. So all those Africans being saved by vaccines Bill & Melinda help supply, they’re soon going to be flying airplanes. Or not.
Whenever one researches US government, major corporate or NGO, and especially billionaire philanthropic giving to poor countries, the presence of a “payoff” should be understood. I won’t get into Bill Gates’ philosophies or how he is tied to eugenics, but his connections with the so-called “deep state” and the CIA in the US bear mentioning here. If you bear with me,
