Rich White Guy to Poor Darker Skinned People…

“Just Enough of Me.  Way Too Much of You.”

Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region<br /> Our Promise -<br /> Creating hope for humanity:<br /> The freedom to dream,<br /> to make choices,<br /> and to live in peace with our planet...................Nope Planned Parent just been brain washed into their agenda....Good ole daddy is a co founder..

The first and last instinct of the richest people is to cull the herd of the rest of us.

    Wait on, lowering the population with a “great job” on vaccines? I’m not anti-vax, but…

      Mark left off the rest of the quote, wherein Gates exclaimed “Oh Pitiless Dark Lord, help me, I’ve said too much!” and then immediately dissipated into a swarm of locusts and flew off.

      • Stu

        That’s usually masked by a blue screen.

      • Jon W

        That’s the funniest comment I’ve read in a long time. +1

  • Barfly_Kokhba

    Reminds me of that old Onion headline, “Affluent White Man Enjoys, Causes The Blues”

    I had a Robert Johnson CD years ago and I could never see or listen to it after that without thinking of that headline and chuckling. While sitting in my high-back chair, swirling my snifter of brandy and caressing my silk jacket, of course.

  • Steve

    That’s just a confusing statement, overall. How could improving medicine reduce the amount of humans? Oh wait, the “reproductive health services” thing. Got it.

    • Stu

      I believe he would say that by having healthier people, folks would be less inclined to have more children based on survivability.

    I do wonder why reforms to the distribution of wealth and resources are so seldom discussed when people make these proposals. I would have thought that it would be a simple and practical fact that when the answer to world population problems is ‘reduce the number of mouths to feed’, then something is very wrong. Surely people don’t have to be Catholic to see this?

    • orual’s kindred

      How will having X number of people on Earth sufficiently alleviate the problems we currently face, anyway? Less people in the world would, I suppose, mean less number of shares to be divided up. How much of an improvement would that be if the injustices of the current arrangements remain unaddressed? Does anybody really think that the Powers That Be will feel less inclined to skew things even more in their favor when there are less ‘competitors’ to worry about?

    • Christian Ohnimus

      Unfortunately in our postmodern liberal democracy our conception of Man is highly skewed. Man is seen as a static creature who relies on the State to provide for him. The average man is a mere consumer with little to no creative capacity. The reality, however, is that man is a dynamic being with inviolable dignity and value, including economic value, and possesses vast creative and productive potential. To view man as a drain on an economy is absurd. Economies exist for man and depend upon him, not the other way around. There is no more valuable resource in an economy than people and no surer way to destroy an economy than to marginalize or reduce humanity.

  • Sean P. Dailey

    Do he and Melinda have any children of their own?

    • jaybird1951

      They have three children, I believe. Some years back I remember hearing about his request to the city council of Medina, WA to add a new bedroom to his $100 million mansion as they were expecting a third child. That humongous house didn’t have enough bedrooms evidently! Gates was also quoted once as saying he had better things to do on Sunday mornings than spend time in church. He is totally secular in outlook and his “Catholic” wife Melinda is not that far behind with her own brand of cafeteria Catholicism.

  • MarylandBill

    Ah the white man’s burden. Will these folks never learn that when western secular society tries to remake other cultures, the results are generally disastrous?

  • Lizzie

    And he’s behind the times. Doesn’t he know that shrinking population is the new problem?

    • John Barnes

      Indeed Gates is behind the times, which certainly sheds light on a lot of Microsoft products. Anyway, as demograhpics go, life tends to imitates art:

      • John Barnes

        Demographics, rather. Time for more coffee. Or too much already? Hard to tell.

        • Roki

          But I want to see pics of demograhs! More demograhpics, please!

      • kmk1916

        That is an absolutely sad and frightening article.

  • hermanojuancito

    Interestingly in this quote Gates doesn’t mention education of young women which in the two-thirds world (the poor world) would make a real difference. I believe that when young women have more time in school and more education, they are less likely to have children when they are in their early and mid-teens.
    Education is not THE solution but it contributes more to the question of population and inequality than mere “reproductive health services.” It would also help women participate more in poor societies and perhaps raise questions about economic and male privileges that keep the poor poor and hungry.

    • Almario Javier

      Shut up, Juancito! If this gets out people will start to resist the corporate Ubermenschen, an we can’t have that, can we?


  • T. J. P. W.

    How does health care stop population growth? Wouldn’t it increase population growth?

    • Rebecca Fuentes

      The key words are “reproductive health services”. It’s code for, “Give them contraception and access to abortion”. Voila, fewer babies, lower population.

      • Ken Crawford

        But I think was TJ was trying to say was (or maybe I should just stick to myself and say what I thought) was that it is ridiculous to bundle those other things with the “reproductive health services” with the others as if it’s a combo deal. It’s the ONLY thing on the list that will reduce the population.

        And it’s clearly a well thought out PR statement because they know that “we want to give contraception and abortion services” won’t sell, so they put it at the end of a long list, bury it so to speak, and hope no one will notice.

        • Rebecca Fuentes

          “it is ridiculous to bundle those other things with the ‘reproductive health services’ with the others as if it’s a combo deal.”
          Completely agree with you there–and with your whole second point too.

  • Mark.

    Microsoft has shipped defective products at least since they took over DOS and got IBM to use it for the original PC. Defective thinking from Mr. Gates is only to be expected.

  • Elmwood

    Ted Turner is another rich white guy who obsesses over world population. It seems the more crap and land you have, the more you worry about other people taking it from you.

    • Stu

      George Soros as well.

    • AMoniqueOcampo

      The hypocritical thing is that he made a horrible environmentalist cartoon series that had an episode about “overpopulation” and yet he has 5 kids.

  • Almario Javier

    Wait, wouldn’t better vaccination programs increase the population, by keeping alive those who would have died?

    It seems his billions have robbed him of common sense.

    • Barfly_Kokhba

      Eh, old people dying is messy. His kind prefers to “nip ‘em in the bud,” when it comes to exterminating all traces of human life and spirit from this planet.
