Before you get too excited by this ridiculous claim: “enough money to end extreme poverty worldwide four times over”, please consider that the population control crowd would never let the rich feed the poor.
It’s the same reason they won’t let the 3rd world develop meaning sources of electricity, or teach them effective farming techniques.
“They” are afraid this self sufficiency will lead to higher population growth, and competition for the valuable resources in those areas.
Ask the bleeding hearts for a few details and you’ll find they rather prescribe crippling Depo-Provera, anal sex, and abortion than allow them to thrive.
These eugenicists are truly the scourge they charge “the rich” with being.
How can you control, much less, make money from folks if you give them the means.
Self interest ?
The path to the betterment on mankind is a huge leap of faith. Faith in the inherent nature of man.
It is this leap and their inability to trust man, but seem perfectly willing to trust Gov’t, to do the right thing.
I suspect that they don’t trust their fellow man, because they don’t trust themselves, as their childish and selfishness have been empowered.
