A quick note to Elon Musk on Brazil - and the threat posed to it from afar  by Bolsonaro  Co

With the greatest respect, on the subject of today's Brazil, you are on the wrong side of history. Alas, the verdict of history cannot be procured by intimidation - nor can it be procured through twisted half truths and propaganda.
