10. "Pressing"? Does that mean the same as "begging"?

Because Elon doesn't give a tinker's turd about the US, about Taiwan, or about Congress.

Our capitalist system has given this man (and others) too much power and, as always, too much power corrupts.

The time to stop these mega-billionaires is before they become mega-billionaires, and the same goes for mega-corporations.

We used to have limits on power. Taxing excessive income, outlawing monopolies, fostering a spirit of competition and innovation by not allowing entities to dominate commerce and wealth

Now we not only allow this concentration of power (wealth), we subsidize it with the taxes of working people.
