    Who’s to say. It’s private now. The value has gone up bigly. Approaching 1 trillion. Just ask Drumpf.

    that’s categorically false, quite simply nobody would get a security clearance without presidential approval if they had his long laundry list of red flags. He’s above the law for whatever reason

    and yet he made time to ensure people who say “purge” get banned. Muskites are dumbest of dumb, or just badfaith

    Fuck Elon
    This dumbass truck release should be great. I think, after seeing the F150 wrap picture, that headroom in the backseat will be toddler low unless the seat bottom is incredibly low with your knees in your face, and possibly less legroom than a quad cab Nissan.

    That’s beyond insane. They won’t deliver mail?
    They won’t issue license plates?

    I understand and accept that private transport carriers can refuse to deliver a Tesla. But mail and vehicle registration is a public function.

    I’m Swede. And stubborn.
    But there should be some things that are sacrosanct. Mail. That’s one of them. If the mail carriers need to strike for better pay etc that’s fine by me.
    But not delivering mail to Tesla because they’re not union? Wtf. Where does that slippery slope end?

    Any other CEO of a fortune 500 company would be tossed out onto the street by the board.

    Good little read on our Billionaire weirdos - the unbearable hubris of Musk and the billionaire tech bros

    https://www.theguardian.com/books/20...aire-tech-bros

    By combining a distorted interpretation of Nietzsche with a pretty accurate one of Ayn Rand, they end up with a belief that while “God is dead”, the übermensch of the future can use pure reason to rise above traditional religious values and remake the world “in his own interests”. Nietzsche’s language, particularly out of context, provides tech übermensch wannabes with justification for assuming superhuman authority. In his book Zero to One, Thiel directly quotes Nietzsche to argue for the supremacy of the individual: “madness is rare in individuals, but in groups, parties, nations, and ages it is the rule”. In Thiel’s words: “I no longer believe that freedom and democracy are compatible.” This distorted image of the übermensch as a godlike creator, pushing confidently towards his clear vision of how things should be, persists as an essential component of The Mindset. You don’t get hockey stick stock charts without such totalised, dominion thinking.

    Any new business idea, Thiel says, should be an order of magnitude better than what’s already out there. Don’t compare yourself to everyone else; instead operate one level above the competing masses. For Thiel, this requires being what he calls a “definite optimist”. Most entrepreneurs are too process-oriented, making incremental decisions based on how the market responds. They should instead be like Steve Jobs or Elon Musk, pressing on with their singular vision no matter what. The definite optimist doesn’t take feedback into account, but ploughs forward with his new design for a better world. It happens ex nihilo – literally “from zero to one”
