You may have noticed a recent event that could be the landmark event of the young 21st Century. Warren Buffet has donated nearly $40 Billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This donation will nearly double the already enormous philanthropic organization. NPR reported today that the Gates Foundation already spends more money in Africa than the main United Nations aid/development organizations. Here we have a private foundation funded by two men that will do more to help man kind than all the states and all the intergovernmental organizations in the world. The days when states dominated the world utterly are long gone.
In other news, Mr. Buffet is also calling for Congress to retain the Estate Tax!!! It seems that the American who would most benefit from its repeal recognizes the need for it!
