It’s not personal to Musk. He’s another in a long line I’ve criticized my whole life. Bill Gates got my criticism once upon a time; he was the superboy. But any influencer with the same kind of following will get this same criticism from me. It’s not about politics or money. It’s about social influence and what that does to people’s critical thinking skills.

 It’s not personal to Musk. He’s another in a long line I’ve criticized my whole life.
Bill Gates got my criticism once upon a time; he was the superboy.
But any influencer with the same kind of following will get this same criticism from me. It’s not about politics or money. It’s about social influence and what that does to people’s critical thinking skills.
Others I’ve been critical of in the same way have been Sam Harris, David Eagleman, Jordan Peterson, Bill Nye – I should list all of them some day
 I don’t really think much about Tesla cars except I disagree with the choice of video only – I remember the accidents – I don’t know if that was fixed yet – and it has a cool logo – and some stuff about workers in Japan I think.
Tesla has always been that guy people like to misquote. Back in 2014 or so, I got so annoyed with the continually awful Tesla quotes, I compiled everything he ever wrote in a single text file so I could search whether a quote was legit or not.
