I like Elon but his 50k plus ~250k isn't half a million. I agree with the sentiment and have even told the chairman of the company I work for that he should be appreciated by the families he's created good paying jobs for in Western Australia. He gets little credit just abuse generally and that isn't right. He's a working class man from Ireland and remembers everyone even me after more than ten years. Sorry for the rant.

Elon is underestimating himself . He did not take into account the inspiration he has provided to millions of people across the globe.What this Erin whatever has done ?? Zilch,Nada ha ha. I think he should not respond to such delusional people . IMO he should simply delete his twitter account ..all it has given Musk is bad publicity and leftist crying fowl on his account .

Dude come on.. like “hoarding resources”.. seriously? The guys entire existence is saving humanity from their own stupidity and this is the crap he’s Gotta wake up to? It honestly makes me sad. Genuinely sad.

Furthermore, being a billionaire doesn’t mean you have a billion dollars cash sitting in an account. It just means that the things you’ve BUILT from scratch are worth a billion at least.

Tesla was literally built from nothing.

I really do not understand why Elon lost his time answering that sh*tty tweet.

sometimes, Masterminds lose their temper because they can't accept stupidity

this is either a good thing or a bad thing. it depends on the situation and the point of view


being too advanced in society can be dangerous for smart people and the power in place because average people will see them as " crazy "


but you have to remember that you are obviously the " crazy one " among apes at the zoo

since you are very smart compared to the apes




one of my favourite quote from a Mastermind:



" Why did you quit school at 16 ? "

" you have to mix whith all those stupid kids and the teachers are even stupider than the kids "

Be careful with the anti-education sentiment. It can be seductive to knock it but research shows that eduction is probably the best thing to happen to the US. Our quality of life has skyrocketed since we revamped our educational system.

Just a little advice from an older (31 yrs) dude. Education literally gives humans 'super human’ powers in comparison to other species. Look at what we’ve built in comparison to shit-flinging chimps. Education is a large part.

The whole reason this moronic lady said this was that she clearly missed economics class.

Elon's got enough going on in his life to be bothering with some hater on the internet.

What do you guys think would be the solution to world poverty?

Erin probably thinks its just giving away a few billion dollars which wouldn't do much in the long term.

How could you improve the situation of a third world country? Lets pretend Jeff Bezos gave you 100 billion..

Water. Water = life.

But since that answer is so ridiculously complex and a major can of worms, I would say: “Give them the infrastructure for them to produce for themselves in a sustainable way."

it’s easy to say but these trolls sometimes have a way of just sucking you in.. i deal with it all day on here


i don’t even get this joke and it still made me laugh
When Pinochet took power in Chile to institute his capitalist reforms, he tossed the commies out of helicopters.

Somewhat dark humor, but now you know. And knowing is half the battle.

eduction is probably the best thing to happen to the US
Hi Chris, I'm from Spain but I think it is similar (of course, better in the US).

Education is a large part.
I agree with you about the importace of education, but i think my best education is being at this forum, the books and some youtube channels.

What happens to me is that I don't nethier hate school nor the people in there but I see the teachers who educate me are so incompetent, at least in my school here in Spain (public school).

And the worst, I feel like I'm in the center of the SRIPT

The whole reason this moronic lady said this was that she clearly missed economics class.
That's sure hahahahaha


Thank you for your advice and point of view, I appreciate it.

There may be things that can be done better, but if you comb through the data you realize the educational institutions we’ve build are probably the single best investment we’ve ever made.

lol stumbled upon this pretty funny

''capitalism is failing us''

I'd totally support socialism as long as I have political power tho *wink*
lmfao lmfao lmfao

ugh, this bimbo does realize that social hierarchies are literally built into the nervous system of every mammal, right?

in chimpanzees the alpha monkey gets the best home

among wolves, the alpha wolf gets the best cut of meat

if anything capitalism gives the underdog a chance... in humans nerdy guys like Mark Zuckerburg or Bill Gates can rise to the top of the hierarchy through shear ingenuity. In most other mammals a skinny guy like Gates could have never became the Alpha. But In humans your position and income on the hierarchy is literally determined upon how much value you provide and how much you help other people.

I like how Jordan Peterson puts it (26:20)

Don't devalue self-education. The smartest person I've been introduced to, with the possible exception of MJ, is a man who quit school at 15 to create his first business, and then went back ten years later for an MBA - no degrees in between. In the meanwhile, he built a multi-million-dollar business. I don't say he's smart for that reason, though it could be true. I say it because I've heard him speak and read his book. It's all about learning for the world we're moving into. https://leveragedlearning.co/2018/ll/read-for-free

Having raised four gifted children, I can attest that the current state of public education and advanced education in the US has a long way to go. That book explains why.

I agree with @ChrisV, school sucks, but holding onto that mindset will keep you from learning later in life. So many people drop out because they hate school, but they don't do anything with all of that free time anyway.

I can't imagine why someone as rich as Elon gives a shit about what anyone else has to say. He should simply stay away from social media.

Having said that, I think Elon has far too much time on his hand if he can get involved in such cat fights.

What a TOTAL WASTE OF TIME! Time is your most valuable resource (Elon Musk's too). Hard to believe he wasted a SECOND of his valuable time responding to this IGNORAMUS who obviously has NO CLUE how money works, this is evident in the "hording" comment. Oh yes the world would be much better served if Elon Musk gave all his money away because the people receiving it would invest it far better than he has. I don't know where this mindset comes from where when I make an extra buck somehow that takes it away from someone else? If I have a Trillion TRILLION dollars in my bank account would that stop anyone from making another dollar? Please brilliant economist explain that to me and make it make sense??????
