That womans intellect is greater than the sum all yours combined squared.
Being an intellectual and promoting an agenda through conspiracies and misdirection are not mutually exclusive. Judging from her bio I bet she has a lot of amazing things to say about farming and the environment that I would totally agree with, but then she says shit like this;
In fact, Gates has been trying to dismantle the public education system of the United States for two decades. For him students are mines for data. That is why the indicators he promotes are attendance, college enrollment, and scores on a math and reading test, because these can be easily quantified and mined. In reimagining education, children will be monitored through surveillance systems to check if they are attentive while they are forced to take classes remotely, alone at home. The dystopia is one where children never return to schools, do not have a chance to play, do not have friends. It is a world without society, without relationships, without love and friendship.
I have heard Gates speak on the subject and this is not at all what he wants. He wants kids to be engaged in learning and these are the indicators that this is actually happening. He has stated during the height of the pandemic in the US that the benefit of getting kids back in schools outweighs the costs, so clearly he isn't trying to create a "dystopia is one where children never return to schools". I call that a lie. She is clearly smart enough to know it isn't true, but she has an agenda and she needs you to see Gates as the devil. Mission accomplished I would say.
