Did depopulation advocate Bill Gates suddenly become a political analyst?
In addition to being a so-called ‘vaccine expert,’ Gates apparently knows the ins and outs of American politics.
Gates made ominous political predictions during the keynote conversation at this year’s Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy.
He predicted America would see civil war.
How would Bill Gates know?
“I admit that political polarization may bring it all to an end, we’re going to have a hung election and a civil war,” he said.
“I have no expertise in that. I’m not going to divert my money to that because I wouldn’t know how to spend it,” he added.
Gates mentioned political polarization goes hand-in-hand with another issue: the spread of misinformation.

Still, he’s open to ideas: “People seek simple solutions [and] the truth is kind of boring sometimes. Anybody who’s got good innovations on reducing polarization, getting the truth to be as interesting as the crazy stuff, that would be well worth investing in.”
Business Insider noted:
Gates’ summer reading list for this year, which he announced in June, includes “Why We’re Polarized” by Ezra Klein.
“I’m generally optimistic about the future, but one thing that dampens my outlook a bit is the increasing polarization in America, especially when it comes to politics,” Gates wrote at the time in a blog post about his book picks.
Gates also addressed mistrust in him during the conversation.
“The polarization and lack of trust is a problem,” Gates said.
“One of the best-selling books last year was a book by Robert Kennedy, saying that I like to make money and kill millions of people with vaccines. It’s wild that [that] sells well.”
There is no “solution for misinformation and conspiracy theories,” argued Gates while lamenting how “people approach him on the street to yell at him and accuse him of tracking people with microchips.”
COVID-related conspiracy theories appear to be dying down, he added.
“I have a group that tracks what’s on the web that’s talking about things that connect to me,” Gates said.
“Overwhelmingly during the pandemic, 95% was all the conspiracy theory stuff. It is calming down now.”
