Musk crushes his media critics

At a time when the crises of income inequality, climate, and democracy are compounding to create epic wealth disparity and the prospect of a second American civil war, four billionaires are hyping schemes that are designed to divert our attention away from issues that really matter.

  • brought middle-class wage stagnation
  • hollowed out of many American towns, a radical increase in income inequality
  • unbounded public acrimony.

TakeAway: Vote for President Biden and Democrats to fix the system that tech billionaires have rigged.
