.: "David H. Koch, prominent supporter of cancer research at MIT, dies at 79." In total, he gave MIT $134,000,000 for cancer research. He was also a cancer survivor.
To those celebrating David Koch’s death... and everyone else... I implore you to read ⁦⁩’s write up.
A few hundred million $ of strategic philanthropy sure buys a nice obituary at MIT, even for arch-villains of science & democracy like Koch. "brilliant" "indispensable" "friend" "generous" "wisdom" "model philanthropist" "benefited humanity" "son of MIT"
Look at this epic bullshit. I never knew Mens et Manus translated to "suck up to billionaire carcinogen & climate polluter sociopaths."
It’s infuriating to compare MIT’s plea for forgiveness for taking $800K from Epstein to its fawning, whitewashing eulogy of David Koch who gave them hundreds of millions. These were posted a day apart from each other:
