Bill Gates epitomizes the moral bankruptcy of the globalised financial system that has revived the old British imperial system of looting
developing countries of resources and locking populations into desperate poverty, whilst turning certain individuals— such as Gates— into mega-billionaires.
“Philanthropist” Gates isn’t challenging the economic system that causes poverty and disease, and denies governments in developing nations the resources
they need to establish adequate healthcare standards. Instead, he is fronting a globalised aid system, which carries as a condition of aid the murderous philosophy
underpinning the disability-adjusted life year (DALY) approach of valuing human life in dollar terms.
The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein asked Bill Gates on 17th May, “How do you make these decisions about what is worth paying for?”
Gates’ reply revealed the chilling genocidal calculus behind health-care decision-making, not just in developing countries, but increasingly in developed nations too,
is that why he’s in Australia, and on Q&A? “The way this is talked about is, ‘What’s a year of life worth?’,” he said. “They call it a disability-adjusted life year
(DALY). When you’re running a poor country health-care system, you can’t treat a year of life as being worth more than, say, $200-300 or else you’ll bankrupt your health
system immediately. So, with few exceptions, you do nothing for cancer…. “Even simple things don’t pass the test. We’re on the verge of saying that Africa should do
blood pressure medicine because it’s become generic and so cheap and that’s such a common issue in terms of heart attack death.”
“But here’s the good news for these countries. If you spend the less than 2 percent of what the rich countries spend, but you spend it on vaccinations and antibiotics, you
get over half of all that healthcare does to extend life…..”
The Roosevelt-LaRouche alternative
The alternative to the Gates method of philanthropy is epitomized by the great U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt,
whose vision for the post-war world included the end of colonialism and a wave of economic development by which
every nation could enjoy the rise in living standards that Roosevelt unleashed in America through his “New Deal”.
The advances Roosevelt achieved in health care in the U.S. were not constrained by DALY-like calculations, and
for many decades they became the standard that the rest of the world sought to emulate.
The philosophy underpinning the Roosevelt approach is expressed in his famous “Four Freedoms”:
Freedom of speech
Freedom of worship
Freedom from want — which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants everywhere in the world.
Freedom from fear
The U.S. statesman and physical economist Lyndon
LaRouche is today America’s leading Roosevelt Democrat, who has fought his whole life to keep Roosevelt’s vision
alive; the Citizens Electoral Council is an independent Australian political party allied to the fight LaRouche is
leading globally.LaRouche is demanding that America abandon the globalisation policies that have bankrupted the world,including the U.S.,
and return to Roosevelt’s commitment to a world of perfectly sovereign nation-states, collaborating on economic development for mutual benefit of their people.
The first step towards that is through a return to Roosevelt’s
Glass-Steagall Act 1933, which separated speculative investment banks from commercial banks, in
order to protect the financial services that were essential to the daily lives of the people, including the financing of
long-term investments in the industries and infrastructure that raised livings standards.
Anything less, such as the conditional aid system Bill Gates is peddling, condemns the people of the world to the poverty and death; in short—genocide!
Genocide in their own words…
A “human way to reduce the population might be to put something in the water, a virus that would be specific to the human reproductive system and would make a substantial proportion of the population infertile.
Perhaps a virus that would knock out the genes that produce certain hormones necessary for conception. … A triage approach will be necessary so that scarce medical resources go to those who can contribute most to the
long-term viability of the planet.Consequently, many middle aged- to-elderly people will die uncomfortable deaths. Not every problem is solvable.”

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. But in designating them
as the enemy, we fall into the trap of mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome.
The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”
– Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution, 1991
“CO2is warming the planet,and the equation on CO2is actually a very straight forward one.If you sum up the CO2that gets emitted,that leads to a temperature
increase,and that temperature increase leads to some very negative effects:the effects on the weather; perhaps worse, the indirect effects,in that the natural ecosystems can’t adjust to these rapid changes,
and so you get ecosystem collapses…“Now, we put out a lot of carbon dioxide every year,over 26 billion tons.For each American, it’s about 20 tons;for people in poor countries,
it’s less than one ton.It’s an average of about five tons for everyone on the planet.And, somehow, we have to make changes that will bring that down to zero.It’s been constantly going up.It’s only various economic
changes that have even flattened it at all,so we have to go from rapidly rising to falling, and falling all the way to zero…“The world today has 6.8 billion people.That’s headed up to about nine billion.
“Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines,health care, reproductive health services,we could lower that by,perhaps, 10 or 15 percent…”
