BILLIONAIRE VS. BILLIONAIRE

Billionaire Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, Tesla, and Solar City, took a shot last week at the richest billionaire in the world, Jeff Bezos, accusing the Amazon CEO of refusing to publish a book titled, “Unreported Truths about Covid-19 and Lockdowns.”
The book, written by Alex Berneson, challenges the level of danger coronavirus poses as presented by political leaders and pumped out by mainstream media.
After Mr. Berneson tweeted about Amazon’s censorship of his book, Mr. Musk then tweeted, “This is insane @Jeff Bezos…Time to break up Amazon. Monopolies are wrong!”
In a rapid response, a mouthpiece for Amazon claimed the book was rejected erroneously and would be published.
As we have written since COVID Hysteria first broke out, Musk, too, has been critical of the lockdowns. On 6 March, he tweeted, “The coronavirus panic is dumb.” The following day he tweeted, “Fear is the mind-killer.”
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Elon Musk’s observation that “Fear is the mind-killer” is backed up by Dr. Donald Henderson, who, in 2006, co-authored a medical article on the dangers and limited efficacy of quarantines when comes to dealing with infectious epidemics:
 Experience has shown that communities faced with epidemics or other adverse events respond best and with the least anxiety when the normal social functioning of the community is least disrupted. Strong political and public health leadership to provide reassurance and to ensure that needed medical care services are provided are critical elements. If either is seen to be less than optimal, a manageable epidemic could move toward catastrophe.”
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Half of all books sold in the U.S. and three-quarters of all digital editions are sold by or through Amazon.
 Amazon has been under scrutiny by antitrust regulators for its sometimes-conflicting roles as both a product producer and a seller of others’ competing products.
Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have called for Amazon to be broken up.
Musk and Bezos are competitors in commercializing space, with Musk’s SpaceX recently gaining ground past Bezos’s Blue Origin commercial space travel venture, when a SpaceX vehicle ferried two astronauts to the international space station earlier this month.
