From a subscriber:
Love your work and newsletter.
Just wanted to correct you. I think it’s important we get these details right.
I looked up that George magazine issue on Internet Archive and its from 1997 not 2001: https://ia803204.us.archive.org/19/items/george-magazine-february-1997-survival-guide-to-the-future-bill-gates-interview/GeorgeMagazine_February1997_SurvivalGuideToTheFuture_Bill_Gates_Interview.pdf
And that quote is not from Bill Gates but “Arno Karlen” from another section of the magazine. It’s still all pretty freaky.
Not to say COVID1984 is not one big evil conspiracy, because it is!
