Gates Investments in Education Criticised; Monsanto (Gates-Backed) Corruption Revisited

Monsanto



Summary: The destination of Bill Gates funds and the impact of these funds explained in a language everyone can understand

IN PREVIOUS posts about the Gates Foundation, which is Gates' private investment vehicle, we have attempted to provide many references about his role as minister of education -- a role that he acquires through investments that in turn help him indoctrinate children to accept his points of view (on software, agriculture, patents, et cetera). Posts of interest may include:





To be fair, Gates is not the only party that acquires a role in the education system through funding. We have mentioned others before. They basically buy influence, but they perpetually find excuses and euphemisms to dress it up with. As Bill Gates famously said: "If you can’t make it good, at least make it look good."

DissidentVoice.org has just published this very long article which names Gates and a few others, blaming them for leveraging charter schools with their private funds.

Neo-liberalism: The Leveraging of Charter Schools with Public and Private Funds



[...]

Unquestionably, the huge increase in charters has included a massive growth in private and philanthropic start-up monies to support them, as well as the growth of a burgeoning educational industry to distribute the grants and sell ‘educational products and services’ while receiving tax dollars for their efforts. Yet for those wondering about ‘neo-liberalism’ and what it means in this context the answer is clear. None of this could have been done without the deregulation, favorable legal legislation and govern,ment intervention in the market. What we are seeing is the transfer of public funds into the private troughs of the handwringing elite who clothe their true agendas in the name of “children”. Unfortunately, this is true all over the nation now, and is being fueled by Arne Duncan and the billions of stimulus monies he uses to extort cities and states. All of this is now wrapped up in the noble lie and pious fraud of providing charter school innovation as competitive model that can raise the standards and levels of education. Is it true? Of course not, that is all sophistic rubbish and the alchemists that coin it know it, as do those of us who oppose it.

[...]

Charter benefactors have a vested economic and social interest in seeing the charter experiment work for it is profitable, and for this they will donate tremendous amounts of capital to help establish new charters in their attempt to dismantle traditional public schools. It is called priming the pump and with the government on its knees it is working. It’s a great business opportunity as well as acts as good public personae for the pirates of Wall Street. They understand that charters provide a unique business opportunity for many financial players in the educational entrepreneurial industry, their buddies and cronies, and they also know that left by itself the charter movement would not be able to come up with the seed money, the start-up costs needed due to the way public funding for schools is presently confabulated. Yet ironically, much of the ‘success’ of the charter movement is economic success and comes from both a toxic mixture of government as well as the private sector funds. For this is part and parcel of the new neo-liberal educational disorder that is now pillaging and prevailing over the wholesale dismantlement of public education in the United States. All in the name of the “kids”.


Another gigantic and very controversial investment from Gates would have to be Monsanto (see links at the bottom for background on the topic). As we showed before, Gates distorts their story and promotes them for his own wallet, just like the news networks fought the reporters who researched Monsanto. They tried to silence them with bribes and illegal firings. Here is a good video about it.



Considering the extortion and blackmail, some executives should probably be trialled and sentenced to prison. This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as Monsanto's illegal activities are concerned, so why is it not surprising that Gates supports these people?
