Fetishizing one man because he (theoretically) is the richest person on the planet is the prime sign that our neo-liberal insanity is reaching it's peak.

For the last time, he did not "create" the EV market, the declining oil production and rising climate crisis created "the market" for EV production.

He did not invent electric vehicles, countless scientists who already were despondent about our energy future designed it, ergo "created" all that Tesla produces, made by people he opresses - hence the discrimination class action suit initiated by the state of CA which he fled.

Elon actually has 3 utility patents to his name -- as co-owner for internet-related communications for fax/phone. He has 3 design patents for the LOOK of a car door, charge port and the overall look of a vehicle.

No, he did not "create" Tesla. He also did not "envision" it . It was started by Mr. Tarpening and Mr. Eberhard both Silicon Valley engineers.

Like any good Oligarch Elon BOUGHT into Tesla after it was "created" by others.

Enough about Elon already!
