This has already been posted on the front page.

I felt it refreshing to see a BI article praising Bill Gates and another being critical of Apple for underage labor being used to build iPhones.

you can only applaud the man for doing what he does
On top of that he tries to convince all the other rich people to actually do the same

Good on him
