News about Bezos and Branson? Yawn. How about Elon Musk going around the moon?

 Justin Long, who plays Matt Farrell in the movie Live Free Die Hard almost got it right when he said:

The news is completely manipulated. Everything you hear, every single day is designed by corporate media to do one thing only. To keep you living in fear.

IMHO, the news media is nothing but entertainment. Did anybody ask Bezos or Branson a hard question? Like why are you stroking your egos with something Gus Grissom did 60 years ago? 

I imagine Elon Musk was laughing his ass off at these wimps. How about a trip around the moon, guys? As the late Heath Ledger said as the Joker in The Dark Knight, "Now you're talking!"

Jeff Bezos and Sir Richard Branson should have asked the question L. Ron Hubbard asked: "DO YOU REALLY WANT THIS CULTURE TO GET INTO SPACE?"

 No, I'm not a Scientologist. But I AM an avid reader of science fiction, and I recently ran across a most troubling quote from L. Ron Hubbard. Not only is he the founder of Scientology, but he's also the greatest science fiction futurist that ever lived. In one of his handwritten notes, he asked:

Do you really want this culture to get into space?

My own novel-in-process builds the case that we really ought to pity the poor bastards who come to invade us. Because we will obliterate everything they hold dear.

Just saying,

Destroying Angel
