Establishment Hero Bill Gates Sold You Out to the NSA, But That’s Not All…
Friday, July 12, 2013
Bill Gates gets heaped with praise from the establishment for his business prowess and his so-called philanthropy. In turn, society seems to elevate him to near godlike status for his generosity and “humanitarian work”. He’s been the poster child for the “see, not all big corporations are evil” argument. Well, not anymore.
Recent revelations that his company Microsoft has, for decades, built backdoors for government spying may put a few chinks in Gates’ shining public armor.
And if one dares look any closer at Gates’ other endeavors, they may discover that their intentions are not nearly as benevolent as general public perception leads us to believe.
First, let me try to outline just how completely Microsoft sold you out to spy agencies. After NSA whistleblower Snowden outed Microsoft as complicit in the PRISM information sharing program, it has come to light that NSA has a backdoor to Microsoft-owned Skype, Windows operating system updates contain bypasses for the NSA, the encryption for the Outlook is unlocked for the NSA prior to launches, and Internet Explorer is likely even most compromised.
In short, this means the NSA has nearly full access to roughly 92% of the commercial computers in the world.
