As much as I like what Elon does with SpaceX, I am also aware that he lives in a world that has little o nothing to do with the world that most people live in. Not only because he is immeasurably rich. But mostly because he spends his days with big issues and surrounded by people that have an incentive to use common sense and their accumen. It’s easy to conclude that all the world ticks this way when in fact, it does not at all. Actually, most people are incredibly superstitious and they live in a world of constant make-belief and wishful thinking. They are afraid and they are hurting – not things Elon must be.
