Bill Gates, Monsanto, and eugenics: How
one of the world's wealthiest men is actively promoting a corporate
takeover of global agriculture
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) After it was exposed that the Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation, the philanthropic brainchild of Microsoft founder
Bill Gates, purchased 500,000 shares in Monsanto back in 2010
valued at more than $23 million, it became abundantly clear that this
so-called benevolent charity is up to something other than eradicating
disease and feeding the world's poor (http://www.guardian.co.uk).
It turns out that the Gates family legacy has long been one of trying to
dominate and control the world's systems, including in the areas of
technology, medicine, and now agriculture.
The Gates Foundation, aka the tax-exempt Gates Family Trust, is
currently in the process of spending billions of dollars in the name of
humanitarianism to establish a global food monopoly dominated by
genetically-modified (GM) crops and seeds. And based on the Gates family's
history of involvement in world affairs, it appears that one of its main
goals besides simply establishing corporate control of the world's food
supply is to reduce the world's population by a significant amount in the
William H. Gates Sr., former head of
eugenics group Planned Parenthood
Bill Gates' father, William H. Gates Sr., has long been
involved with the eugenics group Planned Parenthood, a rebranded
organization birthed out of the American Eugenics Society. In a
2003 interview with PBS' Bill Moyers, Bill Gates admitted that his
father used to be the head of Planned Parenthood, which was founded
on the concept that most human beings are just "reckless breeders" and
"human weeds" in need of culling (http://www.pbs.org/now/transcript/transcript_gates.html).
Gates also admitted during the interview that his family's involvement in
reproductive issues throughout the years has been extensive, referencing
his own prior adherence to the beliefs of eugenicist Thomas Robert Malthus,
who believed that populations of the world need to be controlled through
reproductive restrictions. Though Gates claims he now holds a different
view, it appears as though his foundation's initiatives are just a
modified Malthusian approach that much more discreetly reduces populations
through vaccines and GMOs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Robert_Malthus).
Gates Foundation has invested heavily
in converting Asian, African agricultural systems to GMOs
William Gates Sr.'s association with Planned Parenthood
and continued influence in the realm of "population and reproductive
health" is significant because Gates Sr. is co-chair of the Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation (http://www.gatesfoundation.org/leadership/Pages/william-gates-sr.aspx).
This long-time eugenicist "guides the vision and strategic direction" of
the Gates Foundation, which is currently heavily focused on forcing
GMOs on Africa via its financing of the Alliance for a Green Revolution
in Africa (AGRA).
The Gates Foundation has admittedly given at least $264.5 million
in grant commitments to AGRA (www.gatesfoundation.org/about/Documents/BMGFFactSheet.pdf),
and also reportedly hired Dr. Robert Horsch, a former Monsanto
executive for 25 years who developed Roundup, to head up AGRA back in
2006. According to a report published in La Via Campesina back in
2010, 70 percent of AGRA's grantees in Kenya work directly with
Monsanto, and nearly 80 percent of the Gates Foundation funding
is devoted to biotechnology (http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_21606.cfm).
The same report explains that the Gates Foundation pledged $880
million in April 2010 to create the Global Agriculture and Food
Security Program (GAFSP), which is a heavy promoter of GMOs. GAFSP, of
course, was responsible for providing $35 million in "aid" to
earthquake-shattered Haiti to be used for implementing GMO agricultural
systems and technologies.
Back in 2003, the Gates Foundation invested $25 million in "GM
(genetically modified) research to develop vitamin and protein-enriched
seeds for the world's poor," a move that many international charities and
farmers groups vehemently opposed (http://healthfreedoms.org).
And in 2008, the Gates Foundation awarded $26.8 million to
Cornell University to research GM wheat, which is the next major food
crop in the crosshairs of Monsanto's GM food crop pipeline (http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_21606.cfm).
If you control agriculture, you control
the populations of the world
The Gates Foundation's ties with Monsanto and corporate
agriculture in general speak volumes about its real agenda, which is to
create a monopolistic system of world control in every area of human life.
Vaccines, pharmaceuticals, GMOs, reproductive control, weather
manipulation, global warming -- these and many other points of entry are
the means by which the Gates Foundation is making great strides to
control the world by pretending to help improve and save it.
Rather than promote real food sovereignty and address the underlying
political and economic issues that breed poverty, Gates and Co. has
instead embraced the promotion of corporately-owned and controlled
agriculture and medicine paradigms that will only further enslave the
world's most impoverished. It is abundantly evident that GMOs have
ravished already-impoverished people groups by destroying their native
agricultural systems, as has been seen in India (http://www.naturalnews.com/030913_Monsanto_suicides.html).
Some may say Gates' endeavors are all about the money, while others may
say they are about power and control. Perhaps it is a combination of both,
where Gates is still in the business of promoting his own commercial
investments, which includes buying shares in Monsanto while
simultaneously investing in programs to promote Monsanto.
Whatever the case may be, there is simply no denying that Gates now has a
direct interest in seeing Monsanto succeed in spreading GMOs around
the world. And since Gates is openly facilitating Monsanto's growth
into new markets through his "humanitarian" efforts, it is clear that the
Gates family is in bed with Monsanto.
"Although Bill Gates might try to say that the Foundation is not linked to
his business, all it proves is the opposite: most of their donations end
up favoring the commercial investments of the tycoon, not really
"donating" anything, but instead of paying taxes to state coffers, he
invests his profits in where it is favorable to him economically,
including propaganda from their supposed good intentions," wrote Silvia
Ribeiro in the Mexican news source La Jornada back in 2010.
"On the contrary, their 'donations' finance projects as destructive as
geoengineering or replacement of natural community medicines for high-tech
patented medicines in the poorest areas of the world ... Gates is also
engaged in trying to destroy rural farming worldwide, mainly through the
'Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa' (AGRA). It works as a Trojan
horse to deprive poor African farmers of their traditional seeds,
replacing them with the seeds of their companies first, finally by
genetically modified (GM)."
