Here are the first three paragraphs of a story that appeared a few days ago in the Times of London:
“SOME of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population and speed up improvements in health and education.
The philanthropists who attended a summit convened on the initiative of Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.
Described as the Good Club by one insider it included David Rockefeller Jr, the patriarch of America’s wealthiest dynasty, Warren Buffett and George Soros, the financiers, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and the media moguls Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey.”
Now, I will not go around comparing these good people and rich to someone like the thug Adolph Hitler and his gang of murderers. They prefer not to kill folks to remove the unpalatable poor and diseased and mongrelized among us. They prefer instead to educate them away from breeding so many of themselves that they begin to crowd out a billionaire here and a billionaire there.
Unless my memory fails me, Bill Gates lives in a 66,000 square foot house. My goodness, that may be big enough to hold a village full of toothless and AIDS ridden Africans. Why, the money it costs to keep the carpets clean could probably provide a clean water supply for a whole province in, oh, somewhere in the Amazon jungle. The cost of its construction would probably run Zimbabwe for a week or so.
But why pick on just plain old Bill, the richest guy in the world, who, the paper says is giving it all away. (If his plans about population reduction come to fruition, there is a chance that there may be no one left to give it to. Hurry up, Bill!) As I said, why pick on him. Smiling Ted Turner, among the world’s richest and most stupid men, (You see, Johnny, you really don’t need to read, or have a brain to be rich. Leave school now.) owns a little retreat down in Patagonia where, lately, the natives aren’t allowed. They aren’t worthy I guess. Or, it may be the fact that Ted…and a few other of the world’s richest and most selfish folks who also own square mile after square mile of the place, just don’t like company…unless that is it’s folks like themselves. Folks, I mean who understand what the earth is for, native species, innocent and free, and definitely not poor, squalid, bi-pedal natives who don’t speak English, drive Lambhorginis and know a clever wine when they smell it.
You see, Old Ted from Atlanta wants to turn his place into a combination exclusive retreat and private game preserve where the last few left on earth after all is said and done…they hope…will be able to relax in relative peace and quiet and watch a llama or two parade by. Nothing wrong with that, I guess, except that the hoi polloi are beginning to insist that there oughta be a law allowing them to drive to the trout streams and what-nots deep in Ted Territory. Back in the country my starving ancestors lived in the place was full of guys like Ted who thought it jolly well good to hang the odd filthy breeder who had the cheek to fish their streams, too. He realizes that the days of hanging peasants and serfs are over. Best, then, to persuade everyone to stop breeding so many.
I don’t know too much about the others, Soros, Bloomberg and Winfrey. But, if the company they keep is any indication, whatever smarts they had have long since left them in favor of their own self esteem.
The Good Club is about as asinine a group of self promoting bean bags as has come along in quite a few years. It is no wonder that they want to limit the population, you know. It is more than likely because they realize on some level that it will mean there will be that many fewer people to laugh at them as they parade their sheer nincompoopancy around. No wonder they met in secret.
I especially like the fact that, as the article states, they will try to counter the effect of religion on population growth. It is only too typical. “The fool has said in his heart there is no God.”
Where do we get ’em? What did we do to deserve ’em? And, God in heaven, why are we allowing them to walk around unleashed?
