All I have to say about Elon is that lots of powerful men and women have personalities quirks and when you compare Elon with, like, Steve Jobs, who was documented as abusive to his own daughter, Elon has done nothing at all like that. He hasn’t hurt anyone. And he is doing more materially to fight climate change by making cars that can run on sunshine–and selling the solar panels to capture that clean energy–than anyone else alive. AND, when climate change hits its peak, we are going to be YEARNING for the halcyon days of covid.
Nicholas Klein, a trade union activist, said in a 1918 speech: “First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. And then they attack you and want to burn you. And then they build monuments to you.”
I was lucky enough to be there the day Elon unveiled his first sedan, the Model S….2011.
Why does the bashing bother me? Even if they’re not bashing Tesla, ie the cars? Cuz it’s a distraction at the very least. And because not enough people are getting electric cars. You realize, doncha, that buying gas is simultaneously helping to re-elect Trump? Cuz Big Oil are huge contributors to all the GOP candidates. It’s simple math. And the other important math is that there are many used EVs on the market for under or around $10k. Check it out. And bash Trump instead. Or buy some Tesla stock. After a while it’s expected to double. Everybody says….never doubt Elon.
