"Elon and the collective"

I think society should have a few dreamers. But there are two problems:

  1. There are way, way more applicants for the job than there are openings.
  2. Even for blue-sky dreaming, there should be some attempt to separate dreams from fantasy and sheer craziness. The time and whatever resources were devoted to trying to spin straw into gold were a complete waste.

I think Elon Musk is not a dreamer but a BS artist. Here's a seemingly careful attempt to support that thesis.

"Say thanks to ‘greedy pharmaceutical companies’ — they’re our best coronavirus hope"

Not to worry: I'm absolutely sure--sure I tell you--when the pharma companies come up with something the critics will properly appreciate their effort. (Or as Madonna snapped in a famous SNL sketch with Mike Myers, "And monkeys might fly out of my butt!")
