There are a lot of convenient myths about Bill Gates that frankly serve to support the incorrect great man theory of history. Let's examine.
William Henry Gates III, is the *fourth* William Henry Gates in a line of business men dating back to the 1800s.
His father, (William Henry Gates II) was a lawyer who's legacy includes the 12th largest law firm in the USA.
Bill wrote his first computer software in 1968 at Lakeside School. Keep in mind how rare it would have been for a 13 year old child to have access to a computer at this point of history.
Bill only had access to a computer because someone had donated a very expensive General Electric computer to his school.
Can he really be considered a "great man" in light of all the privilege his parents wealth gave him?
Nowadays Bill spends his $100 billion privatising schools, this is his charity, to privatise schools and indoctrinate people into a system that puts his class ahead of all others.
history, settler-colonialism, cannibalism, lol Oh No
so y'all know the donner party, that famous band of settlers that all fuckin ate each other in the woods in the winter that one time
apparently the wel mel ti, the local people, probably tried feeding them at least once if not more, and got TURNED DOWN
TURNED DOWN IN FAVOR OF CANNIBALISM ..
the wel mel ti were justifiably horrified and decided to just leave them the hell alone, which: fair!!!
The person who died breaking into the tacoma concentration camp yesterday trying to destroy ICE vehicles was actually a trans woman it turns out:
(I'm not gonna retype it all on masto cuz my wrist are sore)
death, police, ICE, martyr
Rest in Power WIllem Van Spronsen
“Are we really willing to submit to laws regulating every little detail of our existence on this planet? Inane laws imposed by those who simultaneously allow and encourage the exploitation and despoiling of the planet and life upon it for the sake of “progress” and “growth” and a house of cards called “the economy.” There’s staggering change on the horizon; it would behoove us to take note and learn the skills, among them how best to use rainwater, to cope with the radically different world bearing down upon us. Regardless of silly laws and regulations.”
Will Van Spronsen was a 69 year old anarchist and antifascist, AKA the greatest ICE breaker who ever lived.
He was murdered yesterday morning by police whilst petrol bombing the deportation buses at a US concentration camp.
