I like what Musk has done in terms of popularizing electric cars and promoting space exploration.  However, that does not justify any sorts of poor behavior.  Moreover, he is not the savior of mankind.  These things would have happened anyway.

Focusing on appealing to the desire for status, at the expense of paying attention to the long-term reliability and safety, is also the problem with Musk's approach to the Twitter.

Re Tesla, Musk's fixation with Full Self Driving (FSD) has been tipping my perception of Tesla from net positive to net negative over the years. In theory, I agree with FSD as an end goal. In practice, the actual attempt at implementation has been irresponsible and even deadly.

Musk has done more to fight climate change than anyone else on earth. Anyone who hates Musk doesn't care about climate change.

That's the biggest load of cr@p I've heard in a long time.

So, why is the debate ongoing?

Because nobody has driven a stake through its heart.

More likely, most think it's irrelevant to the topic of the thread.

Another aspect to the Twitter story is a labor one. Technology is one of the few examples where many workers actually have a decent amount of market power, and I'm sure that absolutely kills billionaires like Musk. No one who cares about worker power should be rooting for Musk's approach at Twitter to succeed, because if it does that'll encourage other billionaire tech bros to similarly go to war against their workers.

And for those who would respond by saying they have little sympathy for the plight of well paid tech workers who get decent benefits, you're illustrating why the American labor movement is so feckless. The right response is to ask why, if tech workers are able to be paid well and get good benefits, why can't all workers?
