Since Covid-19 burst onto the scene early this year, a handful of power-addicted individuals has come to dominate the national and international discourse about the purported pandemic. Not ashamed to fan the flames of fear to achieve their aims, big-headed figures like Bill Gates and Elon Musk—aided and abetted by career toadies like the World Health Organization (WHO) director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)—are having a field day prognosticating and telling the world’s citizens what they can and cannot do. (Note: Many other rogues could—and should—be called out in connection with Covid-19, but for the purposes of this article, the focus is on this particular “Gang of Four.”)
Although theories about Covid-19’s origins, causes, severity and solutions differ [see articles in this issue of Wise Traditions], one thing has become increasingly apparent to many: Covid-19 offers a highly convenient pretext for a rapid reengineering of society that few could have imagined half a year ago, nor would likely be acquiescing to now without the amped-up threat of THE VIRUS.1 Thus under cover of “virus mania,”2 this band of merry men—along with numerous partners in government and the medical-pharmaceutical-biotech cartels—has been seizing every opportunity to market long-desired Orwellian interventions. The dystopian vision with which they openly aspire to seed the planet includes 24/7 surveillance and tracking,3 forced quarantines,4 immunity certificates,5 nanotech implants,6 mass vaccination7 and brain-machine interfaces8—a no-way-out agenda that would cheerfully relegate individual sovereignty and constitutional protections to the historical dustbin.
GREEDY GATES’ MAKEOVER
When Bill Gates stepped down as CEO of Microsoft in 2000 and launched the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, his largesse immediately began to lay the groundwork for a massive public relations makeover, boosted by purchased allegiance from media outlets such as NPR, NBC, the BBC, The Guardian, Le Monde and Al-Jazeera.9 Before Gates’ miraculous rebranding as a homespun philanthropist, he was not a popular figure. As GQ wrote in 2015, “the soft, cuddly Bill Gates of today hardly would be recognizable to veterans of the tech industry. . . in the late 1980s and 1990s.”10 In his Microsoft years, he was famed as an “office bully” who “seemed to thrive on conflict, always pressed for advantage, and even schemed to dilute his [business partner’s] stake in the company when [his partner] was ill with Hodgkin’s disease.”10 Among personal computer users, Gates was also widely reviled for his dysfunctional, virus-prone operating system (with suspected intelligence community backdoors) and the brutally monopolistic practices that eventually landed him, in 1998, in an antitrust lawsuit with the Department of Justice and twenty states.11 After initially losing the lawsuit, Gates finagled a deal in 2001 (details never disclosed) that let him off the hook with barely a hand slap.
As the corporate media got busy repurposing Gates as an affable philanthropist eager to give his fortune away, Gates focused on cementing the various agendas and relationships that have converged to propel him to his current Covid-19 notoriety—despite the lack of medical training or any other relevant credentials that might justify his draconian medical and social prescriptions. From the start, a particularly critical component of the Gates agenda has been his incessant promotion of vaccination. In 2000, Gates helped launch the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (later renamed Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance), to which he has donated over four billion dollars.12 In 2010, Gates pledged ten billion dollars to the WHO and declared a Decade of Vaccines. Around the same time, Gavi and WHO also joined forces with the Gates Foundation and several other entities—including Anthony Fauci’s NIAID—to establish a Global Vaccine Action Plan, with Fauci stepping up as one of the Plan’s five Leadership Council members.13 As journalist James Corbett summarizes:
[T]his attempt to reorient the global health economy was part of a much bigger agenda. An agenda that would ultimately lead to greater profits for Big Pharma companies, greater control for the Gates Foundation over the field of global health, and greater power for Bill Gates to shape the course of the future for billions of people around the planet.14
Alongside Gates’ global health activities, he has also been active in building up the vaccine enterprise in the U.S. After partnering with the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—parent organization to NIAID—in the mid-2000s to create a program called Grand Challenges in Global Health, the Gates Foundation initiated a chummy “new phase of cooperation” with NIH in 2014, including significant investment in vaccine development.15 Many American universities have also developed cozy funding relationships with the Foundation.
In addition to exerting his outsized influence on vaccine programs and priorities around the world (and unremorsefully leaving behind such a horrendous trail of vaccine injuries and deaths that India’s vaccine program severed ties with the Gates Foundation in 2017),16 Gates has established a number of other key funding priorities, none conducive to human or planetary health. Pet projects include support for ominous technologies like geoengineering (“the deliberate mass scale manipulation of the weather”), video surveillance satellites, 5G antennas, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, GMO-based agriculture and the genetic extinction technology known as “gene drives”—as well as providing financing for mundane misdeeds such as subprime mortgages and unnecessary surgeries.6,9,17,18 5G has played a growing role in the Gates Foundation’s investment portfolio (with its second largest tech holdings, after Microsoft, in Crown Castle, the dominant owner of 5G infrastructure throughout the U.S.).3 5G-related companies also dominate Microsoft’s recent corporate acquisitions.19,20
At this juncture, it is more than apparent that the foundation’s financing of “hospitals, universities, media, governments, and health organizations” has given Bill and Melinda Gates “the ability to shape the decisions made by some of the institutions they fund, including when these decisions go against the desires of the masses they claim to be helping.”17 And, in the era of Covid-19—with Gates having pledged three hundred million dollars in commitments to vaccines and therapeutics—it also seems clear that “No matter which way you approach the solutions being presented. . . you will find Bill Gates’ fingerprints.”17 Gates has made it plain that he plans to evade all culpability in the likely—and even predictable—event that his vaccines cause injury or death, having stated that no vaccine will be distributed until governments around the world agree to indemnity against lawsuits.21
Thanks to Gates’ well-oiled publicity machine, Covid-19 has reportedly sent the magnate’s popularity “soar[ing] through the roof,” at least in the U.S., with one survey citing favorable opinions from 58 percent of Americans, including “both Boomers and Millennials.”17 However, judging by the massive outpouring of Gates-directed hostility and skepticism on
display in social media posts, online comments and other digital forums, such surveys may not be telling the whole story. At the protests against lockdowns that have been multiplying around the nation, many participants can be seen carrying signs calling for Gates’ arrest and imprisonment or simply proclaiming, “Bill Gates is evil.”22
FALSE FAUCI—AND HIS SIDEKICK
Dr. Anthony Fauci has served as the director of NIAID since 1984, navigating through half a dozen administrations. With an annual budget currently estimated at almost six billion dollars, his agency’s research portfolio covers infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, tuberculosis, malaria, Ebola and Zika as well as “immune-related illnesses” ranging from autoimmune disorders to asthma and allergies.23
Fauci is famed for his ability to hype infectious disease threats and for his skills in priming and massaging public opinion—skills that have served him well with the emergence of Covid-19. In early March, 2020, for example, Fauci stoked coronavirus fears by lumping the new virus, about which little was yet known, into the same basket as past panic-inducing events such as the HIV epidemic, anthrax attacks and bird flu. Leaving the door open to go in many different directions, he added, “Everything has a little bit of a different twist to it. It’s not exactly the same, but there’s always that uncertainty that gets people very anxious.”24 Long-time Fauci critics have observed that the doctor often “advance[s] theories and yet position[s] himself to avoid scrutiny” and also not infrequently covers up contradictions in his assertions through “obtuse and wordy explanations.”25
In the 1980s, Fauci played a leading role in the response to AIDS, working with his long-time, Bobsy-twin sidekick, retired Army colonel Dr. Deborah Birx.26 This experience likely helped him learn the ropes of how to commandeer immense taxpayer resources for iffy epidemics and still iffier vaccines. In 1984, the year that he became NIAID director, the U.S. proclaimed that it would have an HIV vaccine within two years;27 though no vaccine has yet materialized, the NIH (including NIAID) continues to receive about over two billion dollars annually for HIV research.28
In 1992, Birx and current CDC director Robert Redfield “knowingly falsified scientific data published in the New England Journal of Medicine fraudulently claiming that an HIV vaccine they helped develop was effective.”29 The accusations came from two U.S. military investigators who alleged unethical behavior and called for an independent investigation; instead, the Army squashed the investigation, leaving the door open for the two to keep pursuing their “stellar careers.”29 Fauci, undaunted, later drew the ire of Senator Tom Coburn for continuing to exaggerate the results of the HIV vaccine trials with which Birx was involved.30 Notably, both Fauci and Birx hold patents related to HIV vaccines.31,32
Fauci’s NIH bio credits him with being one of the principal architects in 2003 of PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief). PEPFAR, another boondoggle for American taxpayers, has resulted in windfall profits for the pharmaceutical industry through the program’s intense promotion of HIV drugs in over fifty countries. Birx has been at the helm of PEPFAR since 2014, holding the official title of “U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Special Representative for Global Health Diplomacy.”
As a more recent example of Fauci’s vaccine opportunism, in April 2016 the NIAID director called for an additional two billion dollars in U.S. government funding for Zika vaccines, though not a single Zika infection had been documented in the U.S. at the time. Displaying his by now all-too-familiar modus operandi, Fauci urged Congress to “act now,” stating “The regular appropriations process takes too long” and adding, “I don’t want to wait to have to develop a vaccine.”33 By November of that year, the WHO was declaring that Zika was no longer an emergency, and by the following March, global infections had tapered to essentially zero. Nonetheless, with about thirty-eight Zika vaccines in the pipeline, Fauci maintained in September 2017 that “Nothing has changed with regard to our vaccine approach”—even as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that it was scaling back Zika activities to “a more limited set of goals and deliverables.”34 As of the summer of 2018, NIAID’s website stated that six vaccine candidates to prevent Zika were still under development.35
Both Fauci and Birx have longstanding ties with Bill Gates and the Gates Foundation. Birx is a board member of the Global Fund, an influential program established and largely financed by Gates to address AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Fauci, as already mentioned, has served on the Leadership Council of the Gates-sponsored Global Vaccine Action Plan,13 and, in the U.S., his agency benefits from extensive Gates research support. In January—just three days after the first U.S. case of Covid-19—the Gates-financed Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) announced significant monies for an experimental coronavirus vaccine to be developed jointly by NIAID and Moderna Therapeutics.36 The Moderna vaccine, which has caused severe illness in some clinical trial participants, has already made the company’s CEO an overnight billionaire as well as generating bonanzas for shareholders.37
TEDROS THE TERRORIST
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus became WHO director-general in 2017—the organization’s first African director and the first who is not a medical doctor.38 Fauci professes to have known Tedros for a long time and calls him an “outstanding person.”
Tedros gets credited in the mainstream media for his prior stints as both health minister (2005-2012) and foreign minister (2012-2016) of Ethiopia, but news accounts tend to gloss over his long-time status as a politburo member of the violent and corrupt Marxist organization—the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF)—which “has ruled Ethiopia under iron fist” for almost thirty years since overthrowing the Mengistu regime.39 During his time as health minister, Tedros oversaw a series of genocidal policies against the Amhara ethnic group, including targeting the Amhara with cancer-causing and fertility-damaging contraceptive products restricted or banned in the U.S. and Europe.40
In addition to Tedros’ longstanding friendship with Fauci, a comprehensive dissection of Tedros’ career and affiliations40 shows that he has had a number of points of contact with Bill Gates and the organizations that Gates finances. From 2008 to 2009, for example, Tedros served on the board of Gavi, a Gates brainchild. When Tedros became WHO director-general, Gavi’s CEO Seth Berkley wrote that “Tedros’ commitment to immunisation is clear” and declared that he “look[ed] forward to working with Dr Tedros” to “achieve our shared goal of universal access to lifesaving vaccines.”41 (Prior to leading Gavi, Berkley headed the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, another recipient of Gates Foundation millions; before that, Berkley accumulated experience at the Rockefeller Foundation and CDC.)
From 2009 through 2011, Tedros served as chairman of the board for the aforementioned, Gates-supported Global Fund. An audit of Global Fund disbursements to Ethiopia during Tedros’ chairmanship identified “a flagrant lack of transparency, numerous shortcomings in the accounting and management of the funds” and “a huge discrepancy between the results presented and the reality observed in Ethiopia during. . . field visits.”40
Tedros was not necessarily a shoo-in for the WHO directorship, with some WHO member states questioning his overemphasis on health indicators like vaccine coverage in lieu of tending to basic public health measures like access to clean water. However, when Bill Gates—then the WHO’s second largest funder—indicated that Tedros was his pick, the dissent abated. (Many have been quoting a May 4th article in Politico that began, “Some billionaires are satisfied with buying themselves an island. Bill Gates got a United Nations health agency in Geneva.”42) When China, too, threw its weight behind Tedros’ candidacy, the matter was settled.40 China’s support may have had something to do with the Asian nation’s massive investments in Ethiopia, which could in turn explain why Tedros has repeatedly given over-the-top praise to China for its handling of Covid-19.40
Interestingly, two months in advance of Tedros’ election as head of WHO, Tedros and Gates met up at an event in Beijing, where Gates made a speech about “innovation, philanthrophy and global leadership.” In his talk, Gates discussed a partnership with Beijing’s municipal government and Tsinghua University to establish a Global Health Drug Discovery Institute.40 An intrepid journalist later pointed out that the board membership of Tsinghua University43 reads like a “who’s who” of U.S. bankers and Silicon Valley leaders. . . including Elon Musk.40
This little tidbit about a Chinese university’s foreign advisors raises interesting questions about Musk and his orientation toward the current Covid-19 social engineering experiment. On the one hand, the former PayPal executive (founder or co-founder of companies such as SpaceX, Neuralink, OpenAI, The Boring Company, Tesla and SolarCity) seems to be enjoying positioning himself as a critic of Covid-19 restrictions, provocatively informing his thirty-one million Twitter followers in early March that “The coronavirus panic is dumb.”44 Following up with a “Free America now” tweet on April 29,45 Musk also earned plaudits in early May for criticizing “fascist” stay-at-home orders that are “forcibly imprisoning people in their homes against all their constitutional rights.”46 (Despite the complaints about his California Tesla factory’s forced closure, however, the lockdowns do not appear to have had any major impact on Tesla’s or Musk’s bottom line—the company “beat expectations” for the first quarter of 2020, remaining profitable “for the longest stretch in company history.”47)
On the other hand, Musk’s May comments also included stern, predictive-programming-style warnings about future pandemics. Specifically, Musk suggested that Covid-19 could be a “practice run for something that. . . in the future might have a really high mortality rate,” including “killing a lot of twenty-year-olds.”46 He also praised hand washing and mask usage as “silver linings” of Covid-19—around the same time that SpaceX started making (and, for the time being, donating) hand sanitizer and face shields.46,48 Although not perseverating about Covid-19 vaccines in the same way as Gates, Fauci or Tedros, Musk has given an approving nod to the potential for vaccines to be generated “as the understanding of these viruses improves.”46 (The plug for vaccines is interesting given that Musk’s first son, born in the early 2000s, died at ten weeks of age of sudden infant death syndrome [SIDS]—a diagnosis that many parents consider an adverse reaction to vaccination.)
Whether or not Musk’s asides about constitutional rights are heartfelt scarcely matters in light of the profoundly negative impact that his many business ventures are likely to have on ordinary citizens around the world. In March, for example, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted Musk permission to install one million on-the-ground antennas that will use “advanced beamforming and steerable antenna technology” to connect SpaceX’s 5G satellites with ground users.49 The FCC had already given SpaceX the green light to launch twelve thousand low-orbit satellites (about four hundred have gone up thus far), and Musk has applied for another thirty thousand—or a total of forty-two thousand.50 Disturbingly, these 5G satellites will “irradiate all areas of Earth, including areas not reached by other transmitters, leaving no place untouched by harmful manmade radiation.”50 In addition, “the on-the-ground transmitters that 5G satellites require to connect satellites with end-users. . . will result in massively increased intensities of RF/microwave radiation.”50
Musk has said little about his Neuralink brain-machine implants since the Covid-19 outbreak began, but in July 2019, he vowed with great fanfare that human trials of the iPhone app-enabled devices—“a tiny chip connected to 1,000 wires measuring one-tenth the width of a human hair”—would begin by the end of 2020.51 Will people line up to get one of the devices—to be installed by a doctor-supervised robot that will drill two-millimeter holes in the recipient’s skull—at the same time as their Covid-19 vaccine, which Gates, Fauci and President Trump are also promising for the end of the year?
WHY DO THEY DO WHAT THEY DO?
The casual comparison to the Gang of Four at the beginning of this article is not so far-fetched. Some of the traits that China’s original gang had in common were, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, an “ability to manipulate the mass media” and a dislike of and desire to overthrow “moderate” government.52 Although the Covid-19 foursome examined here displays superficial differences in tactics and pronouncements, their skilled use of the media and their shared interest in a form of rule called technocracy53 certainly seem to match up.
Technocrats promote a highly centralized, data-driven economic system, arguing for jettisoning market “messiness” and “old-fashioned politics” in favor of an elite ruling class of scientists and engineers.54 The technocratic movement arose publicly in North America in the 1930s, morphing decades later into initiatives like the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.55 Relevant to the sorts of biologically and socially invasive measures that Gates, Fauci, Tedros and Musk are espousing, modern-day technocrats are particularly enamored of the “converging disciplines” of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science.53
Musk’s technocratic leanings can be traced back to his Canadian grandfather, Joshua Haldeman, who “earned a place in the political history of Canada” by serving as leader and research director of the Canada branch of Technocracy, Inc. for about six years beginning in the mid- 1930s, until Canada banned the technocracy movement.56 Haldeman then served as national chairman of Canada’s “Social Credit Party” before moving to South Africa,54 where Musk was born and raised. Musk’s current girlfriend, a singer who has adopted the sobriquet of “Grimes,” has apparently become a technocracy convert, describing (in March 2020) her belief that her boyfriend is better suited than any government to solving the world’s problems.57
Technocracy’s “science knows best” orientation is not dissimilar to the guiding spirit behind transhumanism (“the science of improving the human population”—à la Musk—“through technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence”58) or behind transhumanism’s philosophical antecedent, eugenics (the “pseudoscience that holds that certain families”—à la Gates or his one-time pal Jeffrey Epstein—“are fit to be leaders of society by virtue of their superior genes”59). In fact, it was dynasties such as the Rockefellers and the Gates who helped solve the eugenics movement’s post-WWII public relations problems. They and other would-be eugenicists managed to salvage the movement’s unsavory association with Nazi ideology by rebranding eugenics as “population control” and later, “family planning” and “reproductive health.”59
Gates’ father (Bill Gates, Sr.) was involved in framing population issues for decades, including in a leadership position on the national board of Planned Parenthood,60 the organization founded by Margaret Sanger, who advocated for a “race of thoroughbreds.” In 1998, an article in Salon emphasized the continuity between Gates father and son. “’Population control’ or ’family planning,’” the author observed, “isn’t just a billionaire fad for the Gates family,” quoting Gates Sr. as saying that “[overpopulation is] an interest [Bill] has had since he was a kid.”60 Gates Sr. also noted his son’s friendships with others “interested in supporting research into world population problems,” such as family friend and Gates Foundation trustee Warren Buffett. Summing up (apparently without irony), the Salon author stated, “Billionaires have always had a fond spot in their hearts for population control.”60 In a 2003 interview, Gates himself called attention to Gates Sr.’s links to Planned Parenthood and credited his father with having shaped his thinking about population issues.61 In more recent interviews, Gates has continued to exhibit a “penchant for discussing reducing population growth.”59 And did Gates misspeak—or was it an intentional gaffe—when he recently referred to a Covid-19 vaccine as “the final solution” on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNiuaKKEPu8)
AN IDEOLOGY, NOT A MAN
In May, the Corbett Report released a meticulously researched four-part video series about Bill Gates, offering many fascinating insights into the Microsoft magnate’s ambitions and motivations. In the last episode, Corbett cautioned that “Gates is no comic-book supervillain, single-handedly directing all of the chaos that is unfolding in the world or single-handedly bringing his own order to that chaos.” Instead, “if Bill Gates is a eugenicist, driven by a belief in the superiority of himself and his fellow wealthy elitists, then what we are facing is not one man, or even one family, but an ideology.”59 And, as another writer says, “While the first victims [of measures such as sterilization and genocide] will always be the underprivileged and marginalized, nobody is truly ’safe’ from being declared ’unsuitable’ for an elite human race.”58
Covid-19 is rapidly bringing into view the new and invasive technological “solutions” available to today’s technocrats—tools like Neuralink implants and quantum dot tattoos that are far more sophisticated than the blunt weapons of sterilization or genocide. As Corbett shows, today’s technocrats are also supported by an “entire infrastructure of researchers, labs, corporations, governmental agencies and public health bodies.” This inhuman ideology, he soberly concludes, will be stopped only “when enough people learn the truth about this agenda and the world of total, pervasive control that is coming into view.”59
GATES: CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY
Outside the United States, Italian politician Sara Cunial delivered a speech to the Italian legislature in May 2020 that captured the sentiments of many people around the world regarding Bill Gates. Describing Gates’ 2018 “prediction” of a coming pandemic, his hosting of “Event 201” in 2019, his destructive vaccine programs and depopulation policies, his activities to obtain “primacy on agriculture, technology and energy” and his involvement with companies rolling out 5G, Cunial summarized:
The real goal of all of this is total control. Absolute domination of human beings, transformed into guinea pigs and slaves, violating sovereignty and free will. All this thanks to tricks/hoax disguised as political compromises. While you rip up the Nuremberg code with involuntary treatment, fines and deportation, facial recognition and intimidation, endorsed by dogmatic scientism. . . [w]e, with the people, will multiply the fires of resistance in a way that you won’t be able to repress all of us.
. . . [G]ive an advice to our [Prime Minister] Conte: Dear Mr. [Prime Minister] Conte, next time you receive a phone call from the philanthropist Bill Gates, forward it directly to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. If you won’t do this, tell us how we should define you, the ‛friend lawyer’ who takes orders from a criminal.62
FAUCI: A CLEVER MANIPULATOR
In March 2020, a damning book by Charles Ortleb (which has already disappeared from Amazon and other booksellers) characterized Fauci as a “clever manipulator”—the “Bernie Madoff of science” and the crafter of an “HIV Ponzi scheme.”63 Goodreads summarizes the nine elements of the decades-long Ponzi scheme, which has involved nosological (disease classification) fraud, epidemiological fraud, virological fraud, treatment fraud, public health policy fraud, “concealment of negative scientific data and paradigm-challenging anomalies,” “chronic obscurantism,” censorship of critics and whistleblowers and—when needed—“vigilantism and witch-hunts against any intellectuals, scientists, or citizens who constitute any form of resistance to the Ponzi scheme.”64
Also this spring, former NIH scientist Dr. Judy Mikovits, one of Fauci’s most famous professional casualties, went public describing her former boss’s bullying and suppression of critical science. Ironically, her book, Plague of Corruption, was at the top of Amazon’s bestseller list for weeks on end.65
TEDROS: FROM BRUTAL POLITICIAN TO WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION HEAD
An impassioned critique of Tedros published in the Ethiopian press just prior to his ascension to the World Health Organization in 2017 lambasted the two-time government minister’s regime. According to this report, the regime that Tedros served continuously for eleven years is well known for its use of “fake anti-terrorisms laws to stiffen any dissent or opposite opinion” and has a reputation for “brutal crackdown of opposition parties, mass killing, imprisonment, displacement, forced immigration, unemployment and human right abuse documented by Amnesty International and Human Right Watch.”39 Its “kidnappings, bombings and armed robberies” have also earned it a listing in the U.S. Homeland Security Global Terrorism Database.40
MUSK: DREAMS AND DISTRACTION?
Is one of Elon Musk’s jobs during Covid-19 to distract the public from what is really going on? One wonders. On May 30, the blast-off of a SpaceX rocket with two astronauts aboard offered a convenient PR diversion “amid the gloom of the coronavirus outbreak,” representing the first-ever manned launch by a private company.66 NASA’s Administrator delightedly stated, “Maybe there’s an opportunity here for America to maybe pause and look up and see a bright, shining moment of hope at what the future looks like, that the United States of America can do extraordinary things even in difficult times.”66 SpaceX operations have continued throughout the Covid-19 crisis, deemed “mission essential” by the Department of Defense. Meanwhile, Musk’s wealth grew at a rate of 48 percent between mid-March and mid-May, 2020.67
