Elon Musk (born June 28, 1971) is an American billionaire entrepreneur who supports freedom of speech and has been critical of tyrannical lockdowns during COVID-19. His immense wealth is based mostly on the meteoric rise in value of the Tesla Motors electric car company. He is also a co-founder of PayPal, a CEO for SpaceX, and chairman of SolarCity. He supposedly is "socially liberal and fiscally conservative" but endorsed hyperinflationist Andrew Yang for the Democratic party nomination in the 2020 presidential election. He believes in man-made global warming. Musk was born in South Africa, raised in Canada and resided in Los Angeles before moving in 2020 to Texas. At times he has been ranked as the wealthiest man in the world, depending on fluctuations in the stock market.
Musk companies are thriving due to government subsidies. Tesla Motors and SolarCity have taken a huge financial hit in 2016. Both these companies are based on the green energy movement and are being punished by the markets due to extremely low oil prices. Musk lost a personal fortune upwards of $4 billion. In 2017, Tesla Motors would acquire all of SolarCity stocks. The highly anticipated Tesla Model 3 starts shipping at the end of July. The stock valuation of Tesla, which may be due to its software development, far exceeds that of GM, Ford, and Chrysler.
Elon Musk indicates that he does not pray to or worship any divine being. However, he asked "any entities that [were] listening" to "bless [the] launch" before the important Falcon 1 launch by SpaceX, a company he founded in 2002.
During California's CCP global pandemic lockdown, according to The Verge Musk said,
If somebody wants to stay in the house that’s great. They should be allowed to stay in the house and they should not be compelled to leave. But to say that they cannot leave their house and they will be arrested if they do… this is fascist. This is not democratic. This is not freedom. Give people back their g*****n freedom … Everything people have worked for all their lives is being destroyed in real time. I think the people are going to be very angry about this and are very angry.
