selfless investment ??? How about paying taxes in support of the National Institute of Health that actually does public health work? Now THAT is a selfless investment in the society that helped, educated supported, nurtured and protected Gates (who bought the first DOS program for $50K from another software developer and persuaded IBM -whose board included his mother - into adopting it in its PCs) in his march to billionaire status. We still protect his fortune in the form of patent protections backed by the US military - which he still advocates for regarding vaccines BTW - and tax laws that allow for evasion of enormous amounts ! Selfless ?? Puhlease. Let's not conflate narcissism with alturism.
