Rich Uncle From America® comes to India’s most corrupt state
Summary: A good new example of how the Gates Foundation changes a foreign government’s behaviour and then shrewdly passes a quarter of a million dollars to those responsible
THERE are many examples that we covered here before where the Gates Foundation mastered creative new ways to pass bribes and tell people how to think, act, and feel. Adding insult to injury, the bribe was described as something commendable, an act of generosity. We keep finding many new examples of Gates’ meddling in world health affairs, but we can only provide a sample of those because Techrights is primarily about computing. We try not to get too distracted. But Techrights is also about patents, which are very close to the heart of Bill Gates, arguably the world’s biggest pro-patent lobbyist and maximalist. He even promotes patents on life, e.g. on seeds, meaning that someone will be paid each time we plent a seed to feed ourselves or our loved ones. Maybe one day someone will figure out a way to also make money from selling/renting air; enforcement is the tricky part as there is not even a genetic footprint on air.
Anyway, at risk of explaining this for the hundredth time, Gates’ current business model is to avoid paying tax and instead invest a supposedly “charitable” money in very filthy companies, then lobby politicians to pass taxpayers’ money to those companies (which Gates invests in for profitability), all under the convenient guise of “charity”. When the politicians do their insidious acts they soon get some sort of reward (or punishment, in case they don’t obey Gates’ will). We love those who are using sarcasm to describe what Gates has been doing:
This is not a bribe. Repeat. This is not a bribe. The Gates Foundation is not giving a bribe of a quarter of a million dollars cash to the Chief Minister of India’s most corrupt state.
Well, actually it is a bribe. And here is the cited article:
The Bihar chief minister will thus be the first recipient of the Vaccine Innovation Award, introduced globally by the Gates Foundation and carries a cash prize of $250,000.
The foundation last year took the decision to bestow the award on an individual/team that has made the most innovative contribution in vaccination.
At Techrights we value humour, so bonus points go to Mr. Gates for labelling this bribe “Innovation Award” — a very effective euphemism for bribe. How can ANYONE be against an award? How can ANYONE be against innovation? We are sure that the company behind the vaccination patents is very happy, and most likely Gates is investing his money in it. No wonder Gates is still getting richer and richer. This issue was discussed for a while last night in IRC. █
