Elon Musk proclaims he’s a socialist… which makes perfect sense, as his business runs on other people’s money

No doubt the billionaire founder of PayPal, Elon Musk, is enjoying the fruits of his labor, that being the development of the world’s first real interactive online service accommodating the online interaction between merchant and buyer.

It’s not like he’s living in poverty or anything, nor would we expect him to.

He devised something of value to hundreds of millions or even billions of people, and he sold that something of value for a lot of money.

Good for him. He’s what we used to call a shining example of “The American Dream.”

But that dream was built on an economic model known as capitalism — the very same model that brought an end to Medieval European feudalism which, for a thousand years, kept people poor, dependent, and unable to escape their cycle of poverty.

Why, then, would this stellar example of capitalism embrace an economic model that has failed everywhere it’s been tried — and which continues its record of failure today?

That would be socialism.

In recent days Musk, current CEO of Tesla — maker of electric cars that spontaneously combust — took to Twitter (where else?) to declare his adherence to an economic model that would have never delivered the riches he currently enjoys.

Could it be due to his reliance on government funding in order to get his venture off the ground? Perhaps.

After tweeting last week that socialists have no sense of humor, Musk wrote, “Those who proclaim themselves ‘socialists’ are usually depressing, have no sense of humor & attended an expensive college. Fate loves irony.”
