Instead of Making Access to COVID-19 Solutions Easier Bill Gates Has Made It Harder (Patent Profits)

Summary: Counterproductively — and at a great cost to human civilisation — Bill Gates has once again put profits and monopoly ahead of global goals such as collective health

THE Gates Foundation helps Bill and his wife become a lot richer while avoiding tax under the guise of ‘charitable’ work. They are not unique in that regard; many in their economic class are doing exactly the same thing. As noted recently in The Nation, as well as in older articles [1, 2], Bill has his hands all over the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine (clinical trials) and it’s all to do with profit. It’s all about money, not people.

“The sad thing is that in spite of growing anger and sometimes fury over Bill Gates the media is eager to paint all the critics as “jealous” or “nutty”; just as Bill would like…”Yesterday we saw the article “Poor Nations Left Reeling After Bill Gates Advised Oxford to Ditch Open Source COVID Vaccine”. Promises are being broken and more money is being sought; for what you ask? To participate in a prematurely-developed and barely-tested product with expedited approval seals. To reject such vaccines isn’t a matter of “paranoia” but perhaps a case of common sense. Given what happened with AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccines (clinical trials) several months ago (withdrawal without explanation) and reports from Norway, warnings about allergies etc. it’s not unreasonable to be a tad sceptical and apprehensive.

The report from yesterday says this:

Europe is reeling from the shock news that biotech giant AstraZeneca will not be delivering anything like the number of vaccines it promised. The company informed European Union officials that they will only be supplying 31 million doses to 27 E.U. countries, rather than the 80 million they had promised would arrive by the end of March. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conti predicted that the news would reap “enormous damage” on the continent that has already sustained over 32 million confirmed cases and 703,000 deaths due to COVID-19.

Given the shady past of Bill Gates crimes, AstraZeneca has managed to associate itself with more of a liability than an icon. And as noted earlier this week (this was brought to our attention): “Oxford University was going to open source its vaccine, then the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation stepped in and convinced them to sell exclusive rights to AstraZeneca. Now AstraZeneca is failing to deliver and poor countries are struggling to access vaccines. It’s important to remember that Gates has used his foundation to launder his reputation, but there are a lot of serious questions about its activities, including supporting strong IP rights for drugs that make them less accessible to poor countries. You can read the full article about Oxford reversing course and selling its vaccine’s rights to AstraZeneca (at the encouragement of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) here…” (links above)

The sad thing is that in spite of growing anger and sometimes fury over Bill Gates the media is eager to paint all the critics as “jealous” or “nutty”; just as Bill would like…

  14. The Free Software Foundation Should Re-add Richard Stallman to the Board

    Dr. Richard Stallman is missed by many who perceive him to have been wrongly treated; putting Stallman back in the Board (at the very least) would help the image of the Free Software Foundation more than the newly-announced work with Community Consulting Teams of Boston

  17. The EPO's Software Blunders Are Inevitable Outcome of Technically Clueless Management Which Grants Illegal Patents on Software

    The "clusterfuck" which the EPO has become is negatively affecting not only EPO staff but also stakeholders, who sink into depression and sometimes anger, even fury, at great expense to their health; this is how institutions die (for a quick but short money grab, a culmination of corruption which piggybacks half a century of goodwill gestures)

    Racist Microsoft is at it again; we're meant to think that China is evil for doing exactly what the United States has been doing but more importantly we're told not to blame Microsoft for shoddy code and back doors (classic blame-shifting tactics and overt distortion of facts, as we saw in the wake of SolarWinds backdoors)

  30. ZDNet Really Hates Golang (Maybe Because Microsoft Does)

    The Golang programming language seems to be the target of intense FUD campaigns from sites connected to Microsoft, so it’s likely a bit of a Nemesis/endgame to Microsoft monoculture (unlike Rust, which Microsoft has already pocketed and is actively besieging to promote Microsoft monopoly and hardware monoculture)
