What role do the technocrats play in the U.S. enfranchised “Liberal World Order” we’ve read so much about? We all know well, by now, the immensely powerful foes of independent thinking in the world. Here’s a short take on Bill Gates, one of the most iconic liberal oligarchs pitted against Putin, free speech, and the people of the world.
“One who deceives will always find those who allow themselves to be deceived.” – Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince
In a paper on Niccolo Machiavelli’s “The Prince” I once presented the role of charity in leadership qualities to be expected from men like Bill Gates. According to the famous Italian philosopher, a prince need not even appear charitable except where the “appearance” of charity is require in order that he appear religious. And where Gates and other western oligarchs are concerned, agnosticism must be replaced by some goodly quality – which says nothing about tax write-offs. Gates must have studied Machiavelli in pre-law at Harvard, for like his fellow technocrat billionaires he applies all the well-rounded machinations. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation being a kind of synagogue for agnostics who need to feign religiosity and a passive believe in the almighty. Since Melinda is Catholic, and since Gates has said he things a belief in God “makes sense” – the busy world has been set up nicely for quasi-philanthropy. But this report is not about agnostic new billionaires, for almost all of them believe in green and not much else.
Most people think that it was Bill Gates’ high IQ that catapulted him to fame and fortune back in the 70s. But the reality is revealing as a prototypical template the “world order” set in place decades ago. In order to understand (or believe) how Gates and these other technocrat oligarchs came to the forefront, we need to look at origins. In Gates’ case, his work on Altair BASIC, an early interpreter for the Altair 8800 systems developed by Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems (MITS). There’s no space here for describing Gates’ minute movements in developing what would become the biggest technology business of all, the home PC, but his leaving Harvard and heading to Albuquerque corresponded nicely with the NSA’s ardent need to tap into the home PC via a program of communications intelligence (COMINT), and later on via the acquiescence of the Department of Defense (DoD) deferring responsibility for signals intelligence (SIGINT) to NSA. At the point Gates entered the game, the DoD and the intelligence community in the United States desperately needed a key “agent” in this explosive home computer arena. What could work better than “installing” the key human cog in a spying machine we now refer to as the “deep state” under American government? Bill Gates would have been the equivalent of a number one draft pick for the NFL if super spying networks played football.
Bill Gates and buddy Paul Allen were inserted into the fastest growing and more important technological maelstrom in history, and the rest is “history”, as they say. It wasn’t long before they founded Microsoft, and the company that started it all, MITS faded into the landscape along with co-founder Ed Roberts, who left for Georgia in 1977 to farm and then later become a small town doctor? It’s interesting to note here that Roberts had once attended the Cryptographic Equipment Maintenance School at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, where he was made an instructor owing to his genius. Roberts ended up being commissioned an officer in the U.S. Air Force, and was assigned to the Laser Division of the Weapons Laboratory at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I mention this for those unfamiliar with how the military works, as Roberts’ security clearances for the work he did would have been above “Top Secret”. He worked with at the weapons lab with legendary citizen-scientist Forrest Mims, who was also an Air Force comrade. Not many realize, but Mims was a key intelligence officer during the Vietnam War, stationed in Saigon. Again, I’ve touched on a deep well of “coincidence” and association most readers would not even believe. I suggest interested researchers start with Mims’ views on faith and Christianity, and especially the controversy over Eric Pianka’s ideas on engineered Ebola strains and managing world populations (yes, Gates and the liberal order have been accused). Mims is that manner of certified genius the deep state would be foolish not to utilize, and this is the case for Gates too.
Moving back to Gates and the prerogative move of home PCs toward becoming the perfect surveillance tool, MITS was sold off to Pertec Computer Corporation in 1976 and Microsoft moved to Bellevue, Washington. Roberts practiced medicine in Cochran, Georgia, until his death in 2010. And Mims continues to apply his brand of genius to the problems of humanity, namely global warming measuring. For the generation of U.S. intelligence brains of Roberts’ and Mims’ generation represented, the sale of MITS represented a changing of the guard. It is here I believe Gates mercuric success really began. Today Microsoft collusion with the NSA and the intelligence community is somewhat obscured by the ongoing sensationalistic news cycle. With Facebook and Google grabbing headlines, and with organizations like the Clinton Foundation snatching some public ire, Bill Gates’ role in the liberal order goes largely unnoticed. An article at Techrights is focused on Skype and on “back door” capabilities geeks say Gates had built into MS systems. Another report, this time from Bloomberg, tells us Bill Gates’ company offers up backdoor tech and direct reports that assist the NSA and other intelligence agencies in spying:
“Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), the world’s largest software company, provides intelligence agencies with information about bugs in its popular software before it publicly releases a fix, according to two people familiar with the process. That information can be used to protect government computers and to access the computers of terrorists or military foes.”
So, whether or not Gates began as an agent of the deep state or not, it’s clear his company colludes with the liberal order in spying on everybody. But Gates and Windows are one of the unique stories of technology land. Of all the companies I can name in this space, Microsoft is the only one in Crunchbase that got one funding round of $1 million bucks, that went on to rule the space. Since an initial round by David Marquardt and Technology Venture Investors in 1981, Gates’ company has never sought or received (visible) outside funding. Marquardt, who has played a central role in the shady world where companies like Microsoft and Sun Microsystems deal with government agencies like the NSA, is one of the guys I’d label as “bag man” for funding “agents” like Bill Gates and Amazon kingpin Jeff Bezos5. A final note on Marquardt here, his August Fund’s investment in smart home technologies, the Brilliant smart light switch startup may put “backdoor” snooping in every corner of the American home. Needless to say, if the deep state and the liberal world order overlooks ANY Orwellian mechanism they’d be stupid.
Bill Gates the brilliant computer genius turned philanthropist is a nice bedtime story for libtard believers. A more realistic approach for understanding such billionaires should be guarded though. Take my assertion Gates and his wife are playing the Machiavellian game. This recent Independent story about a call by Global Justice Now for investigating the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on the grounds the foundation really aids big business:
“The world is being sold a myth that private philanthropy holds many of the solutions to the world’s problems, when in fact it is pushing the world in many wrong directions.”
