Has Bill Gates helped or hurt humanity?


Fact Box

  • Born as William Henry Gates III on October 28, 1955, in Seattle, WA, Bill Gates famously left Harvard University during his junior year in order to start a microcomputer software business, Microsoft, with his friend Paul G. Allen.
  • In 1994, Bill Gates paid over $30 million at auction to acquire Leonardo Da Vinci's collection of writings, called the 'Codex Leicester.'
  • With a net worth of $131 billion, Bill Gates has said that he will only leave a fraction of that wealth to his children—namely, $10 million each—explaining, 'It's not a favor to kids to have them have huge sums of wealth. It distorts anything they might do, creating their own path.'
  • If Microsoft had failed, Bill Gates said he would have pursued a career in artificial intelligence research instead.

Although billionaires can be contentious and display unethical business practices, what Bill Gates has done for humanity has undoubtedly helped the world progress and society to thrive. He's often differentiated from many other billionaires because of his dedication to philanthropy and also the worldwide adoption of Microsoft software.  

Bill Gates has famously donated billions with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which aims to eradicate poverty, illness, and malnourishment in Africa. While many religious and non-profit organizations have attempted to partake in this venture, they often fail due to providing schools or infrastructure that locals simply cannot maintain. However, Gates' foundation seeks to fund agricultural initiatives to supply jobs that help locals to help themselves to alleviate many issues. 

Gates participated in an $11 billion effort to help create the COVID-19 vaccine to eradicate coronavirus as fast as possible. Since the illness spread quickly, institutions and scientists needed accelerated funding to assist their research methods. By donating billions, Gates helped ensure that scientists could quickly find a cure for a dangerous virus. 

Further, the amount of value that Microsoft software has brought to the world is indisputable. With over 11 billion annual users, the Microsoft brand has clearly helped businesses, government sectors, and schools run their day-to-day operations with an efficient software program. 

Although wealth as large as Bill Gates' alleged $113 billion can seem outrageous for the average person, the philanthropist has vowed to donate all of his wealth to charitable organizations. Pledging money to worthwhile causes like disease, poverty, and climate change, the good that Gates does is notably a positive for the planet.

It isn't just a conspiracy theory--Bill Gates historically has a 'long and strange history of population control.' While many mainstream sources try to debunk these claims, he has openly explained that vaccines contribute to population control, and he is known as a 'figurehead of eugenics,' the dangerous belief that humanity should be genetically improved. 

The initial unpopularity of Gates began in the 90s, when his company, Microsoft, was sued based on allegations that they were establishing a monopoly, a violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890.

While Gates loves to dismiss his opponents as 'crazy,' he has actual plans to stop climate change by blocking out the sun and also has ties to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. In fact, his ex-wife, Melinda, claims that their divorce was directly connected to these 'haunting' connections.  

Recently, many human rights groups and activists have come against the 'philanthropist,' claiming he violated medical ethical statutes in India. Apparently, a vaccine promoted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was said to negatively impact many young girls, even contributing to their deaths. 

Like many elite billionaires, Gates uses the outward guise of 'philanthropy' and 'charity' to create a 'scientific cartel' controlling the world, an accusation made by a senior official at the World Health Organization (WHO). Gates is a child of privilege who would never have been successful without his parents' money and connections.

There's a good reason Gates took a pie to the face in 1998--he's an unscrupulous, scheming cheater who backstabs the competition, according to co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen. His involvement in public health and faux-charity work is nothing more than another scheme to gain what he craves the most: money and power.
