“The day will certainly come when the whole of mankind will be forced to check the augmentation of the human species, because there will be no further possibility of adjusting the productivity of the soil to the perpetual increase in the population.” Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, 1925
Despite his deep involvement in “family planning” for poor countries across the globe, Bill Gates is not an elected official, nor does he have a background in healthcare. With his demonstrated obsession with population control, Gates only has influence because he is a left-wing activist with money. The eccentric billionaire and his bride are following in the eugenicist footsteps of the radical socialist Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, a fellow Malthusian, who also used “birth control” to advance her desire to rid the planet of those she deemed unfit.
Socialist Eugenicists and The Fabian Society
The neo-Malthusians of Sanger’s day included such socialist luminaries as Havelock Ellis, George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, Stella Browne, C.J. Gamble (Pathfinder International founder), Knight Dunlap (served as President of the American Psychological Association & founder of the Journal of Psychology) and Marie Stopes, who Margaret Sanger met at a Fabian Society meeting in 1913.
The Fabian Society “is a British socialist organisation whose purpose is to advance the principles of democratic socialism via gradualist and reformist effort in democracies, rather than by revolutionary overthrow.” Their Coat of Arms is literally a wolf in sheep’s clothing. While Margaret Sanger was a Fabian along with many of her fellow eugenicists (George Bernard Shaw designed a stained-glass image of early Fabians), Bill Gates, Sr. was praised by the Fabian Society for supporting “Fabian proposals”.
This author will repeat that: “Bill Gates, Sr. was praised by the Fabian Society for supporting “Fabian proposals”.
In 1914, Margaret Sanger published the Woman Rebel, which instructed girls to “advocate the prevention of conception…” In Vol. 1, No. 6, August 1914 Margaret Sanger declared: “Imprisoned Comrades of the working class have been saved again and again from the clutches of the monster Capitalism…” Today, Margaret Sanger would likely be a member of the Squad, bashing “capitalism” while calling for unrestricted, taxpayer funded abortion.
‘Reproductive Health’ is a Euphemism for Population Control
Population control activists, often socialists, love euphemisms. From the beginning, “birth control” or “Family Planning” was really about population control. Eugenics was also about population control. As observed at the Library of Economics and Liberty: “The Malthusianism told them that millions had to die; the eugenics told them who the victims ought to be.” Consider that Sanger addressed the “fifth International Neo-Malthusian and Birth Control Conference” in London in 1922.
In 2009, Bill Gates explained in his Gates Foundation annual letter that he and his wife got involved in “reproductive health” in developing countries in the mid 1990’s specifically to reduce the population:
“When Melinda and I first started our giving, in the late 1990s, our focus was on reproductive health rather than childhood deaths. We felt that giving mothers the tools to limit their family size to what they wanted would have a catalytic effect by reducing population growth and making it easier to feed, educate, and provide jobs for the children who were born.” [emphasis added]
“Contrary to the Malthusian view that population will grow to the limit of however many kids can be fed,” Gates states, “in fact parents choose to have enough kids to give them a high chance that several will survive to support them as they grow old. As the number of kids who survive to adulthood goes up, parents can achieve this goal without having as many children.”
Gates reiterated his desire to limit “population growth” by focusing on “reproductive health” during an interview in 2010:
“…It was absolutely key for me – when our foundation first started up, it was focused on reproductive health. That was the main thing we did because I thought – you know – that population growth in poor countries is the biggest problem they face…”
Population control was the launchpad for eugenics, as reported at RAIR. Thomas Malthus, of whom Gates and Sanger are disciples, believed that overpopulation will eventually stretch the world’s resources beyond capacity. Bill Gates has regularly evoked Malthus in his speeches and writings.
Influence of Bill Gates, Sr.
Bill Gates Sr., Gates’ father, was pivotal in shaping his son’s world view. The elder Gates, who died earlier this year of Alzheimer’s, has been described as “instrumental in not only starting the [Gates] foundation but growing it…” In yet another Margaret Sanger parallel, Bill Gates described his father once glowingly as former “head of Planned Parenthood“.
Bill Gates, Sr. inspired his son to delve into population control, which is what prompted Gates and his wife Melinda to use the red herring of “reproductive health” to further their goal of reducing the “surplus population.”
More Parallels Between the Gates and Margaret Sanger
Like Margaret Sanger, who wanted to “exterminate the negro population,” Melinda Gates singled out black Americans ostensibly to help them by putting them first in line for their coronavirus vaccine, as reported at RAIR Foundation.
Speaking of the coronavirus vaccine, there are historical parallels with forced vaccination and population control, as well. From RAIR:
“During the Third Reich, Germany instituted the Nazi sterilization law, inspired by Planned Parenthood’s racist eugenicist founder Margaret Sanger. [Sanger’s]…radical left-wing perspective is reminiscent of Bill Gates who has also disturbingly mentioned several times how vaccinations can help reduce the population.”
While the founder of Microsoft is not shy about his role in reducing the population through “reproductive health,” he believes – at least publicly – that Malthus’ logic was flawed. In 2014, for example, he shared a video that explained how the agricultural revolution improved quality of life for people, instead of leading to death and misery. However, the video argued, it is not unreasonable to consider that the earth’s resources are finite, and that famine and political unrest caused by man made global warming “are real problems that may yet prove to be disastrous.”
Similarly, the Gates Foundation shared a video that delves into Bill Gates’ hypothesis that healthy children leads to less people, not more:
Gates’ overarching concern, always, is “overpopulation”, as evidenced by his own words. Why would citizens trust him with any public policy initiatives?
