“They’ll get sort of addicted, and then we’ll somehow figure out how to collect sometime in the next decade.”
Summary: Bill Gates and his groupies are still pillaging and plundering India, using proprietary (secret) code and Trojan horses rather than old-age weapons
“See this Press Release,” he told me last night, linking to this EDGI example which is shrewdly disguised with euphemisms we saw before
[PDF]. This is perpetrated in part by Courtois, whom we wrote about in [1, 2, 3] (he lobbies a lot for Microsoft). Previously we also saw EDGI in India courtesy of Bill Gates, who used the Gates Foundation to abolish GNU/Linux adoption, via so-called ‘gifts’. To recommend this new book about the Gates Foundation, here is how they operate:
This book looks critically at how the Gates and Bloomberg Foundations awarded millions in grants to promote tobacco control in Africa. Evaluating projects financed by philanthrocapitalists is extremely rare because nobody wants to risk offending them and the organizations they have entrusted with their generous gifts.
There is more shameless PR in India and this one comes from the Gates Foundation too. The foundation which is causing polio (and promoting tobacco) does its dealings while paying to portray itself as the fighter against polio. Appalling yet again (we covered this type of polio spin several times before). As another Gates watcher puts it (rhetorically), “Will the Gates Foundation take the blame when polio returns to India?”
Polio will probably return to India. Who will take the blame then? The same people getting the congratulations now? The Gates Foundation?
If this milepost is so important, why doesn’t the New York Times feature it? Because McNeil knows polio can come back.
Let’s get something straight here. Microsoft and Gates don’t give a damn about India; they just care how to make money from India, either through cheap labour, addiction of the young to Microsoft products, or patents and PR. India should expel the colonists and charlatans from Microsoft and the Gates Foundation. While they are at it, they should reject the corporate press (like the above) that reposts Gates’ paid-for propaganda, verbatim even. █
