Billionaire Bill Gates promotes his hypocritical philanthropic efforts in a segment on 60 minutes entitled “Why Bill and Melinda Gates put 20,000 students through college.” Scott Pelley interviews the Gate’s on limited education options, student debt, and Americas future workforce. Bill Gates responses drop some serious hints about his vision of future America.
Scott Pelley asks, “As college becomes more expensive and student debt rises, what’s at stake for America?”
Bill Gates responds, “Well, it’s a huge problem. We’ll have a two-class society where the richer families can support the scholarship, and you’ll have an inner-city, mostly minority group that’s no longer going to those elite colleges, and therefore a lot of the high paying professions are out of their reach. So that’s really bad at an individual level. It’s also very bad for the country and our basic founding credo of equal opportunity and our economic strength.”
With the Gates scholarships, Bill Gates claims to be fixing the very problem he is helping to create, a two-class system. Currently, Bill Gates is one of the three men that have more wealth than the poorest 50 percent of the US population.
How can elitists like Bill Gates fight the very thing that they are creating- a ruling technocratic class? While it’s great that he is helping minority and lower class students get through college, could he have another motive as he does with climate change?
60 Minutes features Princeton as an example of increase in minority representation in universities across the nation. Princeton’s minority representation more than doubled in the last 30 years, but President of Princeton University, Christopher Eisgruber says that’s not enough because 60 percent of their students were still in the top ten percent income bracket. Because of this, Princeton began recruiting students based on their socioeconomic status.
Scott Pelley points out that in accepting more first-generation low-income students, Princeton must be turning down some highly qualified students from families that have attended the university in the past.
Christopher Eisgruber explained, “one of the things that is so tough about our admissions situation right now is we’re turning down 93 and a half percent of the kids who apply. So as we’ve taken up our low-income students, who are still underrepresented in our population, we’ve had to make other tough choices about other students.”
Workforce to Drone-force
When Pelley asks what the countries needs are regarding workforce and education, Gates answers that education is needed because automation will steal jobs, but he owns Microsoft, one of the businesses that relies on the advancement of technology and plans for automation. For example, Gates already has an ai that’s better at reading than humans.
“Well, the economy is constantly changing. And automation is taking away a lot of the jobs that you could do with only a high school degree. And so if you look at the current trajectory of how many kids are going to college, we’re gonna fall over 10 million jobs short of being able to fulfill the demand. Also, as we’re competing with countries, China and many others they will get ahead if their education level gets beyond ours. And so it’s great for the individual. But it’s also important for the strength of this country” Gates says.
Robots are planned to take over the labor industry, leaving thousands jobless. A report by accounting and consulting firm PwC said that in the U.S., 38% of jobs could be at risk of automation. Bill Gates says he’s helping the problem by providing scholarships to less fortunate students, but in comparison of the number of jobs that his technology will help to take, in the end, he is actually hurting the situation far more than helping.
Bill Gates treads a morally shaky line. In the past, he has revealed his true intentions for vaccines. During a TEDx speech, he exposed the true intentions simmering under the surface of his fraudulent philanthropy.
Citing climate change as the reason, Bill Gates presented an equation that he said would be the answer to zero CO2, the amount of CO2 = people x services per person x energy per service x CO2 per unit energy. “So let’s look at each one of these and see how we can get this down to zero, probably one of these numbers is gonna have to get pretty near to zero,” he says with the “p” for person highlighted on the screen behind him.
He continues with his sinister plan, “first we’ve got population, the world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, healthcare, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”
Due to statements like that above, it’s tough to trust Bill Gates intentions to begin with. The more we examine his “good works,” they look like a cover for the problem he’s actively helping to create.
Bill Gates calls for equality, but its clear that his definition of equality is skewed. The billionaire plans to be landlord over 25,000 acres of a smart city in Arizona called Belmont.
With Bill Gates promoting depopulation, creating his own smart city, and envisioning a possible future where a two-class system exists in America, its not a stretch to say he wishes to treat humanity as an engineering problem. Recently Gates became a public proponent of Crispr, a DNA editing technology that intends to replace the natural process of creation, adding to the concern that the technology could create a eugenic nightmare of designer babies.
