Opinion: If You Advocate Population Control and You Are Yourself Doubling in One Single Generation, Then You Might be Hypocritical

Summary: People with 3-5 children (each) tell us that the world has an overpopulation problem; while the growth of the population certainly poses a risk, these people lack the moral authority to lecture us about that (unless they adopt a eugenicist worldview, wherein only particular people are permitted to reproduce)

A LOT of well-meaning people have been bamboozled into this ludicrous idea that Bill Gates is a nice man. This sociopath is worse than a nihilist. He’s a tyrant who bribes the media to paint him as exactly the opposite of what he is. He could barely get along with his own family (shouting at them) and he was arrested several times.

Even fewer people care to comment on Gates’ arrogance and disregard for many people’s lives. Please note that we don’t take a stance on abortion here, we just point out the hypocrisy regarding overpopulation. Some people cite/link to a Bill Gates video where he’s captured as saying people or most people have no purpose (and things to that effect). The other day the Gates-funded BBC (he pays them repeatedly for bias and puff pieces) published “What happens when we’re too old to be ‘useful’?”

“Please note that we don’t take a stance on abortion here, we just point out the hypocrisy regarding overpopulation.”Gates is a stereotypical example of people with private jets stressing the urgency of climate action and/or urging for such action by flying their planes around… to merely shake a hand and give a talk…

Does Gates live a modest life? No, his mansion directly contradicts such a view (worth about 0.15 billion dollars; compare this to the world’s most expensive mansions) and his fast-growing wealth contradicts claims that he’s “giving it away” (one of the biggest lies perpetrated by him).

This is an issue which we explored and mentioned here many times about a decade ago. Much of the above isn’t worth exploring again because it was covered here ‘to death’ back then. We try not to become too repetitive. Nothing has changed since then.

One reader recently reminded of us this 1998 article which touches on the Gates family and its “population control” (depopulation) ties, notably the father of Bill Gates. That mentioned Warren Buffett as well:

“Reproductive health and family planning” is a buzz phrase that emerged out of the 1994 United Nations Cairo conference on population issues, said Dr. Gordon Perkin, president of PATH. In the past, the research topic used to be referred to as “population control” — though, said Dr. Perkin, “the words ‘population control’ are not used any more, except by people who don’t know the field.”

Billionaires have always had a fond spot in their hearts for population control: Ted Turner is a big supporter, as is Warren Buffett, a Gates family friend.

“If you think about what people like Buffett, Turner and Gates all have in common — they are more global in their thinking, more risk-taking, more revolutionary in their business practices,” said Beth Frederick, development director at the Alan Guttmacher Institute, “and as such they look for larger answers to some of the problems that seem so close to home.”

But whatever you call it — “population control” or “family planning” — this isn’t just a billionaire fad for the Gates family.

“Bill Gates Sr. has been deeply involved in this issue for decades,” says Laurie S. Zabin, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Zabin, who served with Gates Sr. on the national board of Planned Parenthood, was instrumental in getting the Gates Foundation grant for Johns Hopkins.

But that doesn’t mean Gates Sr. is the only one who cares about overpopulation, said Zabin: Gates Jr. “has supported issues of real social concern and certainly this is one of them.”

Gates Sr. agreed: “It’s an interest he has had since he was a kid. And he has friends who are interested in supporting research into world population problems, people whom he admires — it’s just a matter of a fit between his proclivities and mine.”

A “proclivity fit” is one way to put it. Or one could surmise that Bill Gates is growing up to be the man his parents raised him to be.

When someone with four kids (i.e. doubling in a single generation) lectures you that there are too many people (who are not his own), you just know something isn’t quite right. Warren Buffett is one example, Ted Turner is another (had three wives, has 5 children), George Soros (Schwartz György) has had 3 wives and has 5 children, but remember that Gates Sr. decided to have a multitude of kids. He has three. Bill Jr. has an older sister called Kristi (Kristianne) and a younger sister called Libby. Bill Jr. also has three kids, namely Phoebe Adele Gates, Jennifer Katharine Gates, and Rory John Gates. So at the Gates family they’re growing 50% in a single generation! Imagine the world going from a population of 8 billion people (where we are today, almost…) to 12 billion in just one generation. What kind of example are these people setting themselves? An old article (more than 2 decades ago) spoke of Buffett as follows:

The Buffett Foundation has had an impact on society that rivals that of much larger organizations, mainly because it concentrates its giving in two closely related fields: population control and reproductive health. This emphasis is rooted in the deeply held beliefs of Mr. and Mrs. Buffett, neither of whom is inclined to air their views in public. “Certainly I consider population and reproductive rights to be important issues . . . but I don’t want to comment on the question or become a spokesman,” Buffett said in 1997. “It would change my life too much.”

[...]

Family Matters

With just $22 million in assets, the Buffett foundation is tiny. But thanks to carefully targeted grants like those below from last year, it has had an outsize influence in its chosen sphere of family planning and population control.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD*

$3.76 million to fund family-planning clinics

INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS ASSISTANCE SERVICES

$2.5 million to distribute abortion devices in Third World countries

POPULATION COUNCIL

$2.43 million for research on population issues

PATHFINDER INTERNATIONAL

$1.24 million to fund family-planning programs abroad, mainly in Vietnam

NATIONAL ABORTION RIGHTS ACTION LEAGUE

$1 million to finance pro-choice lobbying group

*Includes a $648,089 donation to the Planned Parenthood Federation and grants to 17 affiliates around the U.S.

Please note again that we are not taking a stance on abortion here; the key point is, these super-rich people believe it’s perfectly OK for them to have a lot of kids (“we can afford!”) in the same way some cultures permit having multiple wives depending on one’s connections and wealth. There’s a eugenicist aspect to that as well — one that the media rarely entertains because of a dark past.

  3. [Meme] Fraud Seems Standard to Standard Life

    Sirius ‘Open Source’ has embezzled and defrauded staff; now it is being protected (delaying and stonewalling tactics) by those who helped facilitate the robbery



  4. 3 Months to Progress Pension Fraud Investigations in the United Kingdom

    Based on our experiences and findings, one simply cannot rely on pension providers to take fraud seriously (we’ve been working as a group on this); all they want is the money and risk does not seem to bother them, even when there’s an actual crime associated with pension-related activities



  5. 36,000 Soon

    Techrights is still growing; in WordPress alone (not the entire site) we’re fast approaching 36,000 posts; in Gemini it’s almost 45,500 pages and our IRC community turns 15 soon



  6. Contrary to What Bribed (by Microsoft) Media Keeps Saying, Bing is in a Freefall and Bing Staff is Being Laid Off (No, Chatbots Are Not Search and Do Not Substitute Web Pages!)

    Chatbots/chaffbot media noise (chaff) needs to be disregarded; Microsoft has no solid search strategy, just lots and lots of layoffs that never end this year (Microsoft distracts shareholders with chaffbot hype/vapourware each time a wave of layoffs starts, giving financial incentives for publishers to not even mention these; right now it’s GitHub again, with NDAs signed to hide that it is happening)



  7. Full RMS Talk ('A Tour of Malicious Software') Uploaded 10 Hours Ago

    The talk is entitled "A tour of malicious software, with a typical cell phone as example." Richard Stallman is speaking about the free software movement and your freedom. His speech is nontechnical. The talk was given on March 17, 2023 in Somerville, MA.

  9. The Rumours Were Right: Many More Microsoft Layoffs This Week, Another Round of GitHub Layoffs

    Another round of GitHub layoffs (not the first [1, 2]; won’t be the last) and many more Microsoft layoffs; this isn’t related to the numbers disclosed by Microsoft back in January, but Microsoft uses or misuses NDAs to hide what’s truly going on



  10. All of Microsoft's Strategic Areas Have Layoffs This Year

    Microsoft’s supposedly strategic/future areas — gaming (trying to debt-load or offload debt to other companies), so-called ‘security’, “clown computing” (Azure), and “Hey Hi” (chaffbots etc.) — have all had layoffs this year; it’s clear that the company is having a serious existential crisis in spite of Trump’s and Biden’s bailouts (a wave of layoffs every month this year) and is just bluffing/stuffing the media with chaffbots cruft (puff pieces/misinformation) to keep shareholders distracted, asking them for patience and faking demand for the chaffbots (whilst laying off Bing staff, too)

    It would be nice to make the Web a safer space for information and accuracy (actual facts) rather than a “Safe Space” for oversensitive companies and powerful people who cannot tolerate criticism; The Web needs to become more like today's Gemini, free of corporate influence and all other forms of covert nuisance

  19. Civil Liberties Threatened Online and Offline

    A “society of sheeple” (a term used by Richard Stallman last week in his speech) is being “herded” online and offline; the video covers examples both online and offline, the latter being absence of ATMs or lack of properly-functioning ATMs (a growing problem lately, at least where I live)

  28. The Corporate Media is Not Reporting Large-Scale Microsoft Layoffs (Too Busy With Chaffbot Puff Pieces), Leaks Required to Prove That More Layoffs Are Happening

    Just as we noted days ago, there are yet more Microsoft layoffs, but the mainstream media gets bribed to go “gaga” over vapourware and chaffbots (making chaff like “Bill Gates Says” pieces) instead of reporting actual news about Microsoft

    Sirius ‘Open Source’ is collapsing, but that does not mean that it can dodge accountability for crimes (e.g. money that it silently stole from its staff since at least 12 years ago)
