The real Elon Musk

Post by Dimetrodon »



A good video on Elon Musk and how much of a fraud he is. He even tried to screw with a rescuer who saved children who got trapped in a Tai cave.

Edit: And since he bought Twitter, which he almost certainly overpaid for by the way, he reduced the Twitter staff which is having a detrimental effect on the company. It is suffering from class action lawsuits and scrutiny from regulators as well.

The "viability" of Musk's projects, explained by Thunderf00t. This is especially true when Musk wanted to install solar panels in a cold snowy area, where they will not be effective.

Re: The real Elon Musk

The boss of Tesla, SpaceX and now Twitter intends to save humanity by colonizing space or by solving major geopolitical crises. A vast design nourished by libertarian ideology, the philosophy of Silicon Valley and the idea that technology can overcome all our ills. Even if it means crushing all those who are worried about these projects...
Musk is no longer just the second fortune on the planet (he was briefly the first, before being overtaken by Frenchman Bernard Arnault), the visionary entrepreneur, the brutal manager with the manners of a provocative child who revolutionized in a the automobile and space industries spectacularly. By getting his hands on Twitter, he skews the rules of public debate and freedom of expression, the foundations of democratic life. He even takes himself for a new Kissinger by proposing peace plans between Russia and Ukraine, or appeasement between China and Taiwan.

The sad part is that control is presented as a way of protecting "free speech," even though it is quite clear that Musk was never a free speech absolutist. The stories of this man always show him being vindictive towards his critics, and he did ban a bunch of journalists from the platform a few months back for supposedly stalking him.

Not the biggest fan of CNN, but they did cover this: https://www.cnn.com/2022/12/17/business ... index.html
Also: https://slate.com/technology/2022/12/tw ... onjet.html

I'm surprised his poll voters (which are normally dominated by his fans) supported restoring the accounts. They're the first to scream "free speech" yet also be the first to go about banning their "leftist" critics.

Interesting bit: the director of the film Glass Onion has revealed that he wasn't thinking specifically about Elon Musk in the creation of the character Miles Bron in the movie, but more of a general stereotype of a Silicon Valley "techbro". It was later that Musk's dealings with Twitter and so on brought him more in line with the character's personality...in other words, he created a type that Musk played in to. :clap:
