Politics is the problem.
Guys like Elon and Bezos are playing by rules they did not create.
I am a capitalist but speaking of the UK specifically I do not believe that a system that allows some to hoard billions whilst others rely on foodbanks is a good system.
There simply is no need for it and whilst I agree with C.G I also believe that despite the failed politics allowing public education to erode and excessive greed to go unchecked billionaires have a responsibility to themselves to do something about it for the simple fact that history has shown us that when the people eventually decide to redress the balance it does not end well for those who have hoarded the wealth regardless of what a nice chap or chapess they are or how big their army is.
As has happened in much of Latin america we also cannot be certain that what comes afterwards isnt just as shite.
We see this already with the rise of far left politics , Bernie Saunders would have beaten Trump if not stitched up by his own party, Jeremy Corybn would have beaten Boris Johnson if he hadnt of been forced to adopt a second referendum policy by his own remainer MP’s.
The far left is a whisker from government and that is why if I was a Billionaire id be trying to not be part of the problem regardless of the laws.
There is only so much joy and happiness spending money can get you.
Elon is almost certainly on the autism spectrum , maybe Asperger’s so what makes him feel joy is unlikely to be the having money as much as it is the earning it.
