I always find Elon to seem extremely sincere. Far too little of that from the people (“career” CEOs who will “run” any “going concern” for a big enough bonus check) who sit behind so many big companies these days.

I notice that now a days the CEO system has turned into a system of someone running a company draining the money away from it for themselves and turn the workers into slaves. while in a lot of cases they have no experience in the industries they come into to milk the place like some type of giant money cow.

At least with Elon Musk Tesla in his case it had to work or else he would lose his shorts in that he had a lot of his own personal money it. Also I notice with him he is more willing to try new ideas in a new industry while the other car makers still think it’s the 1950’s and cry like screaming babies every time someone comes up with a new idea.

Elon is actually a terrible speaker (halting, rather aimless discourse). However, his speeches are actually quite interesting.

I suppose nobody dares tell him he would be much better with some speech coaching.
