Elon Musk looks to have it all, billions of dollars in the bank or tied up in shares, a jet-set lifestyle. And he happens to own and run Tesla and Space X. One company pushes the boundaries of space flight and the other pushes the boundaries of future mobility. Before this ultra-success struck, Musk faced a lot of struggle. After netting $180M from his share of PayPal in 2002, Space X And Tesla drained him of every single penny. But he persisted and… as of today business is roaring in the Musk universe.
But we don’t want to sanitise Musk’s triumphant business success. On the CIA backed plot to overthrow the Bolivian President Evo Morales and his administration Musk Tweeted:
“We will coup whoever we want! Deal with it.”
It should be noted that Bolivia holds between 25% and 45% of the world’s known lithium reserves. Following the overthrow of Morales, hundreds of indigenous Bolivians were massacred by what is seen as a fascist administration. Morales wanted the state to control Lithium mining with the profits being redistributed to fund infrastructure and the populous as a whole.
Anyway, it’s a long story about political and corporate corruption and you can read more about it by clicking on the following link. Musk’s Bolivia Tweet, at the most basic level, looks really, really bad. It’s a great shame because Tesla and Space X represents the best of Elon Musk. Why did he have to do the Bolivia Tweet?
