Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation Collaborate on Colonisation of Africa

Posted in Africa, Bill Gates, Deception, DRM, Microsoft, Patents at 10:13 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“Gates’ gimmick of becoming a philantropist repeats the Rockefeller scam almost one to one a century later.”

Dark cloud over good works of Gates Foundation

Summary: The Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation put grants in a program for making African farmers dependent on the US — a program euphemistically called “green revolution”

BILL GATES’ foundation is sometimes being compared to the Rockefeller Foundation. It is a subject that we covered before, but at the time we did not know just how close those two foundations were, until finding this new report from Forbes. They now invest jointly, after Gates' flirting with the United Nations. It’s about privatising Africa for power and profit [1, 2, 3, 4, 5].

This is hypocrisy of the vilest sort. In fact, U.N. agencies, programs and policies themselves have prevented farmers in the developing world from obtaining the tools they need to become more productive. That gets us back to Bill Gates and his big plans: His choice last year of former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan to head a new group intended to achieve a “green revolution” in African agriculture, the Alliance for a Green Revolution–established with an initial $150 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation–was incomprehensible. If past performance is any indication, the only things likely to become greener are the numbered bank accounts of Annan and his cronies.

Needless to say, Forbes cannot criticise the Gates Foundation for its hidden agenda of profit (e.g. money made through patents and investments in badly-monitored production of oil, which kills children in Africa). Forbes Magazine is for Big Business and the UN is not a big business, so it is the only one to be taking the blow here. The real victim in this case is the externality, the people of Africa.

There are other interesting developments around the Gates Foundation at the moment. “Doubtless with a catch,” says Glyn Moody regarding: “Allen says Gates Foundation supporting open textbook projects”

Moody believes that this is another attempt to spread DRM, of which Gates is a major proponent. And Moody is probably right. The greatest mastery is making business look like philanthropy. This way, people fall in love with those who steal the most from them.

    There is oil in Ghana, Nigeria and other areas. Getting M$ software in there will further hamper communication, exacerbating existing friction and making it easier for outside interests to divide and conquer or just play factions off against each other.

What Else is New

  2. Java's James Gosling is Wrong. Free Software Advocates Never Suggested or Insinuated That Money-Making Was Ethically Wrong.

    The honorable James Gosling mischaracterises the stance of Free software advocacy, portraying it like it is an issue of money rather than respect for users



  3. Maybe This is What Codes of Conduct Were Made for? Or to Prevent? (Updated)

    When people bemoan the abuse they receive from a so-called 'anti-harassment' team (covering up corporate corruption in a project by ousting people) this is the kind of thing they receive from colleagues or former colleagues



  4. Media Contradicts Itself, Redefines Proprietary Software as 'Open'... for Microsoft

    Proprietary GitHub is being spun as Microsoft going "open" (nothing could be further from the truth) in another EEE-type move with diffusion and confusion

  8. The Different Types of Spammy 'Articles' and 'Reviews' Which Have Killed 'Professional Journalism' (Nowadays Mostly SPAM)

    The media has become so rogue that a lot of it is merely an extension of the marketing/PR industry; unless this is corrected, online publishers will fail to earn or maintain any degree of trust



  9. When the Software -- and by Extension Hardware and Network -- Controls the User...

    A distraction-free workflow is more likely to be attained using Free software than without it; in a world with information overload and 'surveillance capitalism' people need to carefully rethink what they do (or have done to them) digitally



  10. What the Linux Foundation Teaches People About GNU/Linux in LinuxFoundationX (edX) LFS101x “Introduction to Linux” [sic]

    Some annotated screenshots of preliminary sections of LFS101x, a 'course' designed to indoctrinate people for the Linux Foundation and the project is borrows its name from (but whose trademark it does not control)



  11. Shut Up and Learn to Maintain an Application Suite

    "Try and maintain a complex piece of software like a browser or an office suite, and then you'll understand."



  12. LinuxFoundationX (edX) LFS101x “Introduction to Linux” is More Linux Foundation Marketing and 'Linux' Revisionism Than Actual Training/Teaching

    The Linux Foundation makes a course about "Linux" partly about itself (the Linux Foundation, with top members like Microsoft and Oracle) and distorts the record with terms like "Open Source" and the pretense everything is "Linux" (even work that predates Linux itself)



  13. Microsoft Sheds Off Lots of Staff in This Autumn of COVID

    Microsoft is laying off more staff than we've estimated (even Azure staff) and the modus operandi disguises layoffs as mere departures (to make it seem wilful)



  14. [Meme] Microsoft's Calculator is Spyware

    The last thing GNU/Linux users need or want is yet another simple calculation tool, this one with Microsoft in control



  15. History's Lesson: Microsoft Now Does to GNU/Linux What It Did to Java (Creating 'Schism' to 'Wrest Control')

    We take a closer look at what Bill Gates admitted (under pressure, with 'smoking guns' to compel him into admission) regarding his rogue tactics



  16. When You Have to Use Windows for Something (Like Work) But You Really Don't Want Anything Proprietary or Microsoft-Controlled

    The situations/scenarios where GNU/Linux and BSD geeks need to 'touch' Windows for something (usually remotely) rapidly dwindle; those who are still using Windows on a laptop/desktop in 2020 are considered tech-illiterate or regarded as 'dinosaurs' (hence the dishonour meme above)

  18. Surveillance in (and/or by) Free Software is a Growing Problem

    If Free software ceases to respect personal privacy (full control over one’s computing), does it still protect users’ freedom? That’s a question or an aspect not dealt with by the Four Freedoms — and one that’s worth entertaining as so-called ‘surveillance capitalism’ grows (data as currency, people as ‘products’ to be sold)



  19. Bill Gates Refers to His Business as “Jihad” and Accuses Java of Being a “Religion” With “Rabid” Supporters

    Peace disallowed by Bill Gates, as usual; to him, this is all just a religious war that strives to cull out and eliminate or convert the 'infidels' (those who reject his religion); the Bill Gates deposition tapes show his deep concerns and fear of Java APIs

  21. [Meme] Openwashed (and Spying) 'Killer App' for GNU/Linux? A Basic Windows Calculator!

    There's no "Linux" news to cover more important and urgent than just another useless calculator (this one with notorious Microsoft telemetry) being ported to GNU/Linux

  23. Open-Sourcing the Investigation of Gates Deposition Tapes and Their Relationship to Current (Present) Affairs

    The so-called 'philanthropist' and 'giver' that the media tells us Bill Gates suddenly became (he has earned another ~$10,000,000,000 since the pandemic began) needs further exposing because, having raided the software world (monopoly by law-breaking), he now does the same in other domains



  24. The Supposedly 'Soft' Bill Gates Interrogated About What Was Called His “Jihad”

    We revisit the odd choice of words (repeatedly used by Mr. Gates internally), suggestive of some divine call for war/arms in the business context



  25. Why Microsoft Will Not Embrace GNU/Linux (to Replace Windows)

    The Bill Gates deposition shows that Gates was aware Windows had become a market monopoly and sought to leverage that to push whatever “killer app” he thought would shield Microsoft’s monopoly; those tactics never changed (here’s an example from two days ago: “Microsoft is foisting Office web apps on Edge users”)



  26. The Sad Story of Mozilla Keeps Getting Sadder Because Mozilla's Managers Abandoned Users and Chose Companies as Their Clients

    Mozilla's business model keeps changing for the worse, as the "app" mentality and/or the "social control media" mindset are chosen over the needs of actual (longtime) users, limiting the extensibility of the Firefox browser in the name of "performance" or "simplicity" (as if all that users need is "dark mode" and a choice of search engines)
