9. I'm not comparing Hitler to Gates - sorry if it read that way.

It was my attempt to illustrate concisely and emphatically why I think the question isn't relevant. There are probably better ways to do it, but my rhetorical skills only go so far (which is to say, not very).

I do not give Bill Gates very much credit for his "philanthropy." There's a book-length explanation available: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/539747/winners-take-all-by-anand-giridharadas/

It's not about Gates specifically (although if I recall correctly, he is mentioned), but it's a decent explanation of why the "good billionaire" thing is almost always bunk.
