Oh, ‘long about now, I reckon.
This isn’t an overreaction to Gates’ latest foray into the news cycle. It’s an observation based on a long pattern of statements and behavior by the founder of Microsoft and one of the richest men who has ever lived which, were any of us normal people guilty of them, would result in our being institutionalized.
Bill Gates is crazy. And he’s dangerous, because he’s willing to put untold sums of money toward making the insane things he believes a reality – and all of those insane things hurt people.
What this comes down to, though, is that Bill Gates has been so rich for so long that he’s spent the bulk of his adult life without anyone telling him he’s wrong. That has the same corrosive effect on character and sanity that you see in the case of kings and dictators. People want some of Bill Gates’ money, so they constantly suck up to him and tell him his ideas are great even when they’re atrocious, and the guardrails normal people live between don’t exist in his case.
So he throws money around at insane things. That he isn’t outwardly off his rocker like Howard Hughes was is small comfort; Hughes mostly kept to himself in that hotel suite in Las Vegas as he descended into madness. Gates is everywhere.
Gates said that he modeled his charitable foundation after the one the Rockefeller family founded. But the Rockefellers took decades to become obsessed with globalist-utopian causes; Gates fell out of the philanthropic womb that way.
It’s a problem. There needs to be some limiting principle governing this man’s excesses. But where that will come from is a good question. When he’s openly discussing destroying an industry that directly employs a half-million Americans for the purposes of “climate change” (formerly known as global warming, until it couldn’t be denied that there was no statistically significant warming going on) when we’re in the middle of the worst cold snap much of the country has seen in decades, finding ways to check this increasingly nutty bull in a china shop begins to become an urgent necessity.
I can think of several excellent ways of checking this cracked wierdo’s ass, a few of which don’t even require the use of any Aimpoint or Bushnell products to aid in getting this vital task done.
Gates is essentially the real-life equivalent of the rich super villain from a Batman or Superman comic book.
But we don’t have a Batman.
Yea, he’s fucking nuts. And lucky, not smart.
Re: “At What Point Do We Realize Bill Gates is Dangerously Insane?”
The behavior of Gates is a problem, but I’ve got bad news for you: Within the ranks of the billionaire oligarchs, Gates is far from the only one manifesting such traits.
Psychiatric/psychological researchers estimate that as many as 10-12% of all adults living in modern societies like the United States are – to some degree – psychopathic or sociopathic. Broadly-speaking, individuals who suffer from these pathological personality disorders divide into two broad categories – low-functioning and high-functioning.
Low-functioning sociopaths and psychopaths struggle to control and/or conceal their predatory aggressiveness, impulsiveness, lack of empathy, pathological narcissism, and deep drive to manipulate and control others. Many turn to a life of crime, and some become serial rapists and murderers.
High-functioning sociopaths/psychopaths, however, are disciplined and highly-intelligent and often possess superficially attractive personalities and personae. Most of the time, they successfully hide the dark traits they share with their less-disciplined cousins – but watch one long-enough and tell-tale signs will eventually begin to tell their tale.
High-functioning sociopaths, since they are intelligent and driven,often ascend to positions of high rank or leadership in the private and public sectors, and some amass great fortunes. Indeed, their ruthlessness, lack of empathy and willingness to do what must be done regardless of whether it is wrong or right, often give them advantages in the climb to the top.
While in the absence of a rigorous clinical examination and other investigation, “proving” that men like Bill Gates – and his fellow billionaires George Soros and Michael Bloomberg – are indeed sociopathic/psychopathic, at the very least, it can be said that these individuals display a disturbing degree of congruence with traits found in those disorders.
In light of this, it is hardly surprising that these men are now acting in a manner reminiscent of some comic-book super-villain or the bad guy in a James Bond movie. All of this might be worth a laugh and shrug of the shoulders if the actions of these predatory individuals had not already cost so much in human suffering, financial loss and death.
On Earth Day this year my local weatherman spent an extra two minutes each segment telling us that every year has been warmer than the last since the 1950’s.
So, unbelievable as it sounds, many people STILL can assert that there is statistically significant warming going on.
Gates isn’t the only insane one around, he’s just the most dangerous because of his money.
Besides, as with all Leftists, it’s not about solving the actual “problem” they cite. It’s about bringing a Marxist Tyranny about with them in charge. They wish to be the new Feudal Lords and Kings with the masses as subservient serfs beholden to them.
Leftism is their real Lunacy.
“Leftism is their real Lunacy.”
I celebrated Earth Day the traditional way: by composting an ex-girlfriend.
Do you use a woodchipper or do you go old fashioned and use the hand saw?
