We are all in agreement about the fact that he is a 'tool' (And a vegan)
But what do you all think about the message that be was putting across in his post?
I think he raised some fair points

I have to say that I find it difficult to dispute much of what he says, just a pity he comes across as a tool. It would be good to see Gates reply to some of the criticisms levelled at him in order to get some balance. But you do get the feeling that whenever Gates does charitable work he can't help himself but to see financial opportunity in it as well.

Just to reiterate, he is an absolute tool. There.

But that doesn't mean he can't say things that are true. While I type this, I'm also having a text conversation with a friend about the censorship on Facebook. Which is frightening because of the huge reach and influence it has. This is the same thing. It is not good for Gates to have the power and control he does. It is about as undemocratic as it gets. Think ruling monarchies, Communist party states, dictators etc. All bad when too much is in the hands of the unelected few.

I don't disagree

But for FB etc. to be able to have great influence through censorship we have already to have already have given them the even greater power of being our voice.

It's still our choice to speak through them.

Just what am I doing wrong???


BTW, Gates is a cock too. Very strongly advocating lab grown meat.
Nothing, of course, to do with his $100m investment in a firm attempting to grow the meat. No siree.
