Look, I am not going to disagree with people who say billionaires need to give up more of their money to help others.

But Branson’s trip to space has led to a resurgence of the “Stop all this space stuff until every problem on Earth is fixed” movement. (Which, of course, ignores…or perhaps not…the fact that every problem on Earth will never be fixed. Sorry, but we’ve had problems since we were still arboreal).
