Recently I wrote an article called “Easter: God’s Vaccine for Humanity“. Using vaccines as an analogy for the Gospel, I mentioned a recent news report about Bill Gates investing his personal wealth in the search for a coronavirus vaccine.
I clearly hadn’t done my homework on Bill Gates, and I therefore hadn’t anticipated the forthcoming backlash from our discerning Daily Declaration readers.
In preparing the mea culpa you are now reading, I have spent considerable time researching Bill Gates. And I can see why I was naive to choose him as an illustration.
Bill Gates (1955–) rose to fame as the co-founder and CEO of Microsoft. He is a software developer, investor, and business magnate. Along with his wife Belinda, Gates has more recently turned his attention to philanthropy.
Gates has received considerable attention since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Major news outlets are reporting an explosion of Bill Gates-themed conspiracy theories circulating online. Even Fox News personalities have made intriguing speculations about him, in what has become a global game of he said she said.
I have a natural apprehension towards conspiracy theories, and for one simple reason. In a complex world, they seek to explain highly complex phenomena in all-too-simple terms.
All that said, Bill Gates hasn’t done himself any favours. He has made eerily prophetic predictions and very large, dubious global health investments—all of which leave the door wide open to suspicion.
In a 2015 TED talk, Bill Gates reflected on the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, saying:
As awful as this epidemic has been, the next one could be much worse. The world is simply not prepared to deal with a disease—an especially virulent flu, for example—that infects large numbers of people very quickly. Of all the things that could kill 10 million people or more, by far the most likely is an epidemic.
In January this year, the Daily Mail reported that, “In a 2019 Netflix documentary, billionaire Bill Gates predicted a killer virus could originate in China’s wet markets to rapidly infect the world.”
In what now appears to be an eerie premonition of future events… Mr Gates had warned of the likelihood of a virus breaking out in one of China’s wet markets—exactly like the one in Wuhan where this new outbreak of coronavirus is believed to have originated.
These were his predictions. What of his investments?
British newspaper The Times, in a 2009 article called “Billionaire club in bid to curb overpopulation“, identified Bill Gates with a clandestine circle of philanthropists that included David Rockefeller, George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The group reportedly met to discuss how, circumventing politics, they might use their fortunes to help drive down the world’s population.
Some billionaires are satisfied with buying themselves an island. Bill Gates got a United Nations health agency in Geneva.
Over the past decade, the world’s richest man has become the World Health Organization’s second biggest donor, second only to the United States and just above the United Kingdom. This largesse gives him outsized influence over its agenda…
The article went on to accuse Gates of “monopolistic philanthropy,” quoting a Geneva-based NGO representative who revealed that Gates is “treated liked a head of state, not only at the WHO, but also at the G20,” and that he is one of the most influential men in global health.
What has really gotten the conspiracy theorists’ tongues wagging is the two occasions on which Bill Gates has suggested that vaccines help reduce the world’s population—the implication being that his sponsored vaccines are designed for death.
In his defence, Bill Gates explains on his website that his goal with vaccines is counter-intuitive. By eliminating childhood disease, he says, vaccines encourage families in the third world to have fewer children in the knowledge that those they do have will make it through to adulthood.
He also argues that his desire for population control is altruistic—that by slowing reproduction to the point of negative population growth, there will be more of the world’s finite resources to go around for future generations.
In terms of motive, I am willing to give Bill Gates the benefit of the doubt. Otherwise, the only alternative is that he has genocidal intent—and that he has been advertising this publicly for the better part of two decades.
Having said this, let me be clear: I will never trust a tycoon throwing billions of dollars at any project that seeks to help people when their main concern is population control.
Especially not someone who is expressly anti-life, like Bill Gates. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has given more than $82 million to Planned Parenthood, whose overwhelming business interest is not parenthood but abortion.
Gates has also been closely linked with Barack Obama’s Global Health Initiative, which used American taxpayer dollars to export abortion overseas. As I’ve written elsewhere, nothing says western imperialism quite like trying to exterminate dark-skinned babies in the developing world.
Conspiracy theories aside, the facts alone are enough for me to sound the alarm on Bill Gates. And to never again use him as an illustration again.
