Don’t Trust a Ticket-Taker

Elon Musk isn’t going to fix or save anything. He’s just another ticket-taker whose success has been manufactured for him.

Elon Musk, the chairman of Tesla Motors, the much-publicized electric sports-car company, is a new YGL. The YGL grouping is perhaps the paramount networking network in the globe. It already includes such notables as Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Co-Founders of Google, USA; Crown Prince Haakon of Norway; Malvinder M. Singh, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Ranbaxy Laboratories, India; Hiroshi Nakada, Mayor of Yokohama, Japan; Nicky Newton-King, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, JSE, South Africa; Carlos Danel, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Banco Compartamos, Mexico; and Jack Ma Yun, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Alibaba Group, People’s Republic of China. Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia is YGLer, as is Newsweek’s columnist Fareed Zakaria.

How anyone imagines that Elon Musk could be a champion of anything worthwhile is beyond me. While it’s true that most revolutionary change is brought about by disaffected former elites, when has Musk ever shown even the slightest sign of opposing any aspect of globalism?
