"While Bernie Sanders furiously tweets about the 'billionaire class' and Warren staffers sip coffee out of their 'BILLIONAIRE TEARS' mugs, Bill and Melinda Gates will quietly get on with saving millions of lives."

"The suggestion that we ought to be suspicious of Gates’s work on global health—work that has saved millions of lives—because he made a slightly ambiguous comment about U.S. politics is not only absurd, it is also pernicious."
My latest in argues that you shouldn't smear people who have devoted their lives to addressing the most serious problems our species faces
"Aren’t Warren, Sanders, Giridharadas, and members of the New York Times editorial board supposed to care about inequality? Or do they only care about inequality in the richest country in human history?"
Bravo to & for coming to the defense of Bill and Melinda Gates, who are evidently too busy saving millions of lives to be distracted by people who spend their time calling them out as filthy plutocrats.
You'd make a stronger case that the way Gates spends his money is less moral than the way the US govt spends if it spent more than one percent of its budget on foreign aid and a lot of it wasn't on weapons for Egypt and Israel
Successful people bad. #MaoHappy
