Most people, especially younger millennials and gen-z, don't know what a shrewd business man he was in his prime. Now he's all soft and fuzzy because he's retired - already has an empire and legacy. He practically wrote the book about tech market manipulation and monopolization. Destroyed competition with devious means and bribed officials as necessary.

well that's almost 25 years ago... so he was a shady businessman, he wouldn't get that far without being one. but let me remind you that we're not in 1998, people change. and lets say he didn't change, how much did you give to charity lately? even if it's done for the wrong reasons that is still in immense amount. not every person with wealth and power is automatically evil

Foundations are also a business. Most if the foundation CEO’s in my country (The Netherlands) make over 200k a year.

He is a genius, he either broke and changed as a person, or he found out how to act and think ahead of everyone else.There is a clear difference between the before and after footage.

With the work B&M Gates foundation is putting in to eradicate polio and other diseases, i don’t really care if they are only pretending to be nice. Let them keep going

It’s entirely possible he realised at that time, what a ruthless dick he was being and rethought his life. But the YouTube conspiracy documentary voice guy definitely makes it seem sinister, so who knows...

A legend, to be objective Computers back then are like how we are with Social Media this past decade. We are seeing how it can affect the world. Inquiries/legislations are being drafted/amended to underwhelmed and address it.

OP thinks he's universe level brain because he just found out mega billionaires is/was ruthless business men. that's how the world works. at least he didn't threaten to blow up society or cause mass harm, he just monopolised the industry. also OP, what are you using to post this video? a PC?
