Gates to a Global Empire

(Navdanya International: Oct' 20) This collaborative report by 14 authors throws light on how Bill Gates' philanthro-capitalism is boosting the corporate takeover of our global seed, agriculture, food, knowledge and health systems,

Manipulating information and eroding our democracies, his rhetoric of promoting global technological development under the guise of humanitarian efforts is shallow justification for Bill Gates’ monopolistic aims.

As the report details, his consolidation of global development has huge implications. Chained to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s million-dollar grants are private corporations and private market interests, the negative feedback loops of technological solutionism, and the further decay of legitimacy for international institutions.

Throughout the report we see how the same patterns of an aggressively imposed consensus through direct influence over all global development actors, repeat over and over again, and how technocratic solutionism, powered by an “unholy alliance” between the science and technology institutions, states, and big capital, are embodied by the Gates’ Foundation and dangerously put into accelerated action through a philanthropic development.

You will see how the patterns of 'technocratic solutionism', powered by an unholy alliance between big-capital, science and technology institutions and states, are embodied by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and put into accelerated action through philanthropic development. Through its various initiatives, sub-organisations, development schemes and funding mechanisms, the Gates weave an intricate web of wide-ranging power and influence, obscured through all its separate strands.
The report addresses a large part of this web of power. A power which deliberately ignores the past failures of the very same technologies they hope to push, in blatant disregard of the potential problems their initiatives might yield, focused only on profit and market expansion.

CONCLUSION

GAIA SPEAKS…

There is no more destructive force on this earth than the tight alliance of nations loosely centralised around the United States which functions as a single empire on foreign policy. The only beneficial thing such a blood-soaked empire can do for the world is to cease its behavior and cease to exist. It is not the benevolent good guy staving off the bad guys, it is the bad guy, and its depravity must come to an end.

Let the world sort out its own affairs without the "help" of the psychopathic force which unleashes such horrors upon our species.
