Jeff Bezos seems to have run out of things to colonize here on Earth.
So, with little left to acquire on this planet, he’s turning his sights to outer space.
Of course, it’s not too late for Bezos to do better — and stepping away from Amazon (as well as the planet) might give him some new perspective — literally — on what he can do on Earth with his wealth and new-found time. He should strongly consider using his gains to help those less fortunate (a message that also goes for other billionaires looking to board their own rides to space any time soon).
Bezos is certainly an admirably successful businessman — so successful, in fact, that he can afford to go to outer space while others go hungry. But his latest exploit makes clear that for now, he’s hardly a successful human being.
