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


  1. GitHub is Moving the Free Software Movement Into “Check”

    GitHub's growing levels of control over Free software projects (GitHub itself is proprietary and Microsoft-controlled) ought to alarm the community; it's a lot worse than most people care to acknowledge, based on weeks of detailed analysis of GNU/Linux distros

    Justice Huber made the right call; but the bullies and charlatans who conspired to undermine laws and constitutions will never be satisfied

    Today we look at misleading claims (or lies) published by Süddeutsche Zeitung after the Germans' constitutional court (FCC) had pointed out the obvious, namely that UPC ratification would be in violation of the German constitution

  8. EPO is Just Like Some Cruel Political Party and Not a Patent Office

    The "cabal" which runs today's EPO (even the word "Mafia" seems suitable here) isn't acting -- not even remotely -- like a patent office; it's a patent-printing operation ("protection money" as income) that uses shallow political stunts to manufacture consent with the EU's 'generous' assistance



  9. Digitalisation and Digital Technologies as a Ploy to Justify Illegal Software Patents

    Say "hello" to the next weasel word/s; from the "hey hi" hype wave we've now moved to something "digital" (which can mean just about anything, including algorithms of all sorts)



  10. The Fall of the UPC - Part X: How We Shall Catalogue UPC Lies

    The cult that Team UPC became (one member lying to another member, maintaining a false version of reality) will be judged based on underlying facts, not lying about facts; we start with a token of contempt for IP Kat and Bristows LLP (there are overlaps)

    The EPO keeps liaising with the EU to promote patents which EU officials have themselves said were illegal; to make matters worse, the EPO's violations of its own laws inspire the United States to do the same

  18. Clear Linux is to GNU/Linux What Clearly Defined is to Open Source

    The idea that we need Intel to take GNU/Linux ‘mainstream’ is ludicrous; as OSDL co-founder (now succeeded in the flesh of the Corporate Linux Foundation), Intel is more about Linux (with DRM, “secure boot” and everything that lets it be remotely controlled) than about GNU and it’s not too keen on GPL (copyleft), either
