Not that it’s my choice to make you understand:
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife have said they plan to donate 99pc of their shares in the social network to charity.
The stock, which is worth around $45bn, will be given to causes that “advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation”, Zuckerberg said in an open letter on Tuesday night.
Through the venture, Zuckerberg and Chan have already donated $120m to support education in underserved communities in San Francisco; $75m to the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital; $25m to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to fight Ebola and $100m to the Newark Public School System.
So far at least he’s just dropping money into dysfunctional bureaucracies. That Newark donation, for example, achieved the square root of entirely fuck all.
This is where Bill Gates has it right. Yes, sure, the money’s a useful multiplier. But it’s skill at getting things done which is the rarity in this world. Actively managing the money to achieve a specific goal is the way to go, not just dropping it off into the waiting palms of the usual SJW bureaucrats.
Gates may fail, nowt wrong with that, but a true malaria vaccine will do more for humanity than any amount spent on the American inner city schools. Schools which aren’t actually short of money in most cases, but could do with a bloody and vicious clear out of absolutely everyone who runs them.
But, obviously, it’s not my choice to make, is it?
