Ripple Enhances Its Partnership with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation


Recommended Posts

I don’t know anything about Bill Gates with Epstein.  I’m leaving that to the authorities.

All that I have is the public stuff to work with when considering his actions.

Twenty years ago I hated him.  He seemed a greedy savage businessman and his bloody eternally crashing OS drove me nuts.

Then I heard about his deciding to give away his fortune and convincing other billionaires to do the same.  Perhaps he was changing.  He may not as yet have given it all away,  but he has given unprecedented amounts to extremely worthy causes.  And done intelligently.  Looking at effectiveness per dollar.

I heard him give TED talks that were sensible and thoughtful.  He seemed more a force for good than evil.  So now, I hope that he is not an evil predatory person in the Epstein mould, and am willing to consider him innocent until proven guilty.  His charitable acts and palpable good deeds have earned him that much at least in my estimation.

Public accusations of guilt by association have been both correct and wrong in the past.  It’s not a good thing to castigate on assumptions.

Wow. What happened to freedom of speech?

May I have freedom of speech too? 

I read these papers and, in my opinion, reality around me is described correctly.

 

Why Education Predicts Decreased Belief in Conspiracy Theories

People with high education are less likely than people with low education to believe in conspiracy theories

Belief in conspiracy theories: The influence of uncertainty and perceived morality

In the present research, we examined people's tendency to endorse or question belief in conspiracy theories. In two studies, we tested the hypothesis that the perceived morality of authorities influences conspiracy beliefs, particularly when people experience uncertainty. It is concluded that uncertainty leads people to make inferences about the plausibility or implausibility of conspiracy theories by attending to morality information

Yes of course. Freedom of speech is essential to form ideas and keep things balanced. 

My reaction was to your ad hominem and ignoring someone you disagree with. 

In this time of censorship on social media and the whole 'cancel culture' I felt I had to react. I find this trend worrying.

I agree,

but I blocked elias because lately he's just acting as a troll. 

Take a look to his recent "contents"  https://www.xrpchat.com/profile/2962-elias/content/ and you'll understand why I lost my patience

Everyone of us conspires to do things.

Um, is that correct?  I think It’s maybe not.

We plan to do things,  and we might cooperate to do things,  but to conspire you must be doing it with subterfuge or bad intent.
 

Quote

A conspiracy, also known as a plot, is a secret plan or agreement between persons (called conspirers or conspirators) for an unlawful or harmful purpose, such as murder or treason, especially with political motivation.

I read an article that put forward the theory that crypto was invented to create a method for exchanging and selling child porn. The crypto coin is simply a diversionary token to facilitate the delivery of the “message fields”
When I see the same corrupt players making news in the crypto space it begins concern me. Clinton, Epstein, and Gates. Why does RL insist on swimming in the swamp with some of the most despicable names on the planet? Shame how money and power makes the actions of evil predators disappear. What’s next: RL partnering with Jared from Subway?
