Every single thing Elon Musk says goes into this category: "It's ok to destroy astronomy because my satellites obviate the need for fiber infrastructure." "Tunnels (not transit) will solve traffic jams." "I am saving the planet by keeping SUVs on the road."

It's all the kind of thing Riley Quinn calls "jingling keys" - a distraction for the technologically unsophisticated (and techies who have dipped into their own product) while everyday corporate crimes are committed under our noses.

The 50,000 targets of NSO's cyberweapon include politicians, activists and journalists. The Israeli arms-dealer - controlled by Novalpina Capital and Francisco Partners - has gone in to full spin mode.
