Re: What does Donald Knuth and Microsoft have in common?

Verily I say unto thee, that Greg Cox spake thusly:

Care to translate that into English?

Never mind, I'll translate it myself.


There's something about the name "United Way of America" that makes me
think of a neo-fascist front for corporate interests, or am I'm just
being cynical? Perhaps Mary Gates' position as a director on the board
of the First Interstate Bank of Washington, and various other
corporations, is the source of my cynicism ... and probably the source
of quite a few other things too.

Yes, "charities" can be very useful, especially if one knows how to
capitalise on them properly. Take this man, for example, he certainly
knows a thing or two about "charities":


It also reminds me of another equally sinister organisation, which
ostensibly works to achieve "social cooperation through better
leadership", but which more accurately seeks political "unification" (in
the fascist sense) through elitist control (a la Bilderberg):

Good for some, certainly.

Yes, in addition to bribery, Microsoft also have a long and well
documented history of tax evasion:
