Musk said last week: “I disagree with the idea of unions. I just don’t like anything which creates a lords-and-peasants kind of thing.”

Isn't he the world's richest person currently?

“I disagree with the idea of unions. I just don’t like anything which creates a lords-and-peasants kind of thing.”

Tweet sent from private plane.

The propaganda here is that they want you to believe that collective action against them makes them lords - but they were lords before, unionisation just limited that power: The limitation of power makes them cry their propaganda.

Good ... then he should sit down with the unions and talk to them as equals

He has been. No idea if he still is, seeing how X is in freefall.

It’s understandable that he doesn’t like lords and peasants, since his family’s fortune was built on slave labor. He would naturally much prefer a master-and-slave kind of thing.

I don’t think X ever was part of his valuation. I

I think the French guy who owns Gucci is currently ahead because of the Twitter stupidity.

Twitter was a drop in the bucket for him. 44bil lost and still in the top 3 most wealthy people in the world. He has way too much money for his own good and we are watching in real time what that kind of money does to a person

I don't think the money is the root of evil in Musk. I think he was a bad man before he got rich. What we are witnessing is the result of a bad man who got too rich and now he can assert his will with his wallet in politics, economy, business, and anything else he chooses.

It's sickening.
