It is when the idiot keeps fucking things up for everyone.I think he's just an intensely arrogant man with limited social skills and underdeveloped maturity whose success and lack of limitation has led to a overconfidence and overambition. As a swashbuckling entrepreneur, this isn't so much of a problem.
Agreed.As someone who seeks to interfere in social and political matters so much, he needs to be firmly slapped down.
Elon Musk has the mentality of a child.
He also has a philosophical understanding of free speech little more developed than a 16-year-old, and no significant conception of the difficulty of social media's task balancing free speech against harms to individuals - as is abundantly clear by him inadvertantly setting a Twitter mob on an employee of the corporation he intends to buy.
Musk stating that he would reverse Trump's ban is precisely why he cannot be trusted with Twitter, because he is indicating that he should be the final arbiter of what should and should not be on Twitter. In other words, declaring that he is dictator of his own private concern. This is inconsistent with the notion of "public space" that he also says he aspires to.
Whether he is aware of it or not, what Musk is doing is a form of maliciousness. There is a term called obliviously evil, even I am not giving him that benefit of a doubt. The douchebag knows what he is doing wrong, but Musk does not care. It's that exact problem of letting bratty, rich, adult-children in charge, because they got an overinflated ego and can't take any form of criticism. So they screw over anyone just to make themselves feel better, and rather fuck the world, than do any self reflecting or admitting they're in the wrong.I don't actually think he's malicious.
