It's not. Population density seems to be a bigger factor.

The BBC's 'fact check' unit tried to answer this one and could only say that it hadn't been proven. The fact is that biological research institutions have accidentally released stuff in to the wild in the past and speculating that this may have happened here is entirely reasonable. Not necessarily true but reasonable.
That's not necessarily true if the opportunity cost of having those hospitals means money cannot be spent on cures for other illnesses. The trick is to work out where best to spend the money to safeguard the largest number of lives possible. People have been working on this problem for centuries and it is not easy.
Human beings ability to trust others developed when dealing with a small number of people - the tribe or the village. The idea that this can be expanded to a vast number of people you have never met is delusional. There is no 'techno-fix' and never will be.
"Women are still struggling to get a foothold in the IT industry" implies that woman are trying and failing. The 'evidence' you show does not seem to support that - it simply shows that fewer woman than men are entering the industry. What if woman are simply more sensible and want nothing to do with IT?
"The build them in such a way that gets around loopholes in the system." - close the loopholes or shut up.
"Don't dare mention how they drive their workers." - go work somewhere else or shut up.
"Tales of not being able to take a toilet break are rife." - go work somewhere else or shut up.
"Their Health and Safety record is also abysmal." - Have they been prosecuted for this?
"In 4 years, the US will be pulling ahead of China on environment pollution output."
No they won't. The US is reducing it's carbon footprint faster than any other nation on earth.
"If enemies of your country invade and overthrow your government, I'm pretty sure Trump will sit on his fat ass..."
And? Why is it Americas problem if other countries invade each other?
You appear to be completely missing the point. Oracle employees have absolutely no right to determine what Ellison says and Ellison is free to say what he likes and support who he likes, as long as he isn't breaking any very specific legal exceptions (shouting fire in a crowded theater etc...) Nobody is obliged to listen to him of course.
