So Musk is complaining that Apple isn't advertising enough on Twitter. He says this is an attack on free speech.
You want to give Trump a platform for his lying ways, fine. Go right ahead. Nobody is stopping you. Twitter is your toy.
Musk seems to be saying to Apple, "Free speech is when you give me your money". Apple can advertise wherever they like.
Sidebar, Twitter requires a paid staff to keep functioning. The number I heard was that 90% of Twitter's revenue was from advertising.
Elon Musk is a big fat fraud selling things for self serving interests.
A rich genius but still a fraud that gets attention because he's "Elon Musk" and right now, he sees an opportunity to take advantage of people......... not because he does the right thing but for entirely self serving interests.
Just like his "million humans colonizing Mars" project.
The chance of that isn't even 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
It's impossible based on physical laws and realities that entirely define the science.
He can't be that dumb and science ignorant to think it's possible, especially the way he touts it as being part of "saving the planet" because we will have too many humans and some can live on Mars to help us do that.
That all we need is great minds and innovation to overcome the impossible.
There is no innovation that will transform the very toxic soil and no atmosphere, other than some CO2 there right now. Or temperatures that are dependent on the distance from the sun and are far too cold to sustain life as we know it.
Only a complete fraud that tells people what they want to hear for self serving interests would push such nonsense. Either that or he really is science ignorant but he's no idiot, so it must be the first one.
The SpaceX plan for building a Mars settlement includes refueling in orbit, a fleet of passenger ships, and the biggest rocket ever made.
Founder of SpaceX, which is working on getting humans to the planet, speaks at SXSW amid rising nuclear tension
If head-on problem-solving can’t save the Earth, maybe lateral innovation can. Will low-cost space research pave the way?
Colonizing the red planet is a ridiculous way to help humanity.
metmike: The fact that so many humans actually believe this absurd stuff would be scary..........except that they also believe that this climate optimum is a climate crisis, that the election was stolen from Trump and all sorts of insane things.
Musk is just exploiting humans wanting to believe in impossible things.
If humans weren't this way, advertizers would be wasting billions of $$$ selling stuff on tv to viewers that WANT TO BELIEVE.
But he doesn't have to pay to sell his snake oil, like with commercials on television.
He gets it for free from the media.........stories and publicity with them acting as his publicity/public relations department because they too want to sell stories for ratings or circulation of the news which people read.
People like this are extremely dangerous because they will use their charisma and power and money for self enriching, attention getting projects(with the media thrilled to cover them) which often is in conflict with the best interests of society/humanity.
Being seen as a crusader for freedom of speech ….by encouraging DISinformation, lies and harmful information that people will believe because they want to believe is often a bad thing.
Exploiting people for self serving interests is Musk's game so I guess he figures that other people with the same mentality, using tactics to exploit people that want to believe in DISinformation on Twitter is a wonderful thing.
What a great world it would be.......NOT!
One where there are no restraints on charlatans like Musk who sell snake oil to enrich themselves and agenda.
We should all just go to Musk‘s or Trump’s social Media site, where tens of millions can get their DISinformation fix to read and hear about manufactured realities that they want to believe in.
the rest of the people go to the MSM to get their DISinformation fix about a completely manufactured climate crisis that features the best weather/climate in the last 1,000 years (last time it was this warm but not as warm as 6,000 years ago…when there was less Arctic ice and all science used to call that the Holocene climate OPTIMUM not despite but BECAUSE it was warmer than this).
A climate crisis supposedly caused by a beneficial gas, CO2. The building block for life that’s indisputably greening up the planet as life asks for more of it since we are only at half of the optimal atmospheric level. The same gas is being defined as pollution that’s killing the planet.
The solution includes replacing the fuel that’s causing emissions that are greening up the planet (beneficial CO2) with the energy source from environmental hell…wind.
helping to destroy the planet via mining for rare metals. ruining ecosystems and landscapes. Killing millions of birds and bats, some on the threatened species list. All to get a diffuse, unreliable form is energy that can never replace fossil fuels that serve as their own batteries.
the cost to convert/electrify completely to renewables and a battery technology that hasn’t even been invented yet(but is part of the fake reality) is 430+ trillion dollars. 4 times the GDP and impossible…..just like 1 million people living on Mars is possible, just like Biden stealing the election was impossible and Russia stealing the 2016 election was impossible.
but people that Want to believe in things like that are in the majority and are fighting to keep their favorite brainwashing source, the tool that gatekeepers of messages and false narratives and DISinformation use to brainwash them. Because it’s their God given right to belong to massive, million+ people, modern day cults that scare them about a fake dying planet or fake election steals with messages that they want to believe.
and each side totally recognizes the other sides being hypnotized by a DISinformation and absurd rhetoric but not them falling for the exact same thing because their charlatans/cult leaders are telling them things they want to believe in and the others sides charlatans are telling the other side things that they know are lies because they DON’T want to believe in those things……so they only apply critical thinking and fact checking to things that they don’t want to believe in.
A brainwashing dynamic amplified by a billion times by the power of the internet and thousand‘s of sources who will tell people what they want to hear that didn’t exist 30 years ago!!!
people reading this will agree that this is happening…..to the other side but not their side or them.
its the new religion(s)……with the internet, social media messaging, MSM and politicians acting as high priests that reinforce messages that people want to believe in based on faith, not physical laws, empirical data or authentic science. Even our scientists have abandoned the scientific method and follow the path which keeps them funded and maintains acceptance and power.
climate science was hijacked and climate history was rewritten, as loony as that seems and much of the research has been corrupted and the interpretations distorted, with all the wonderful benefits completely covered up.
the scare is based on programmed climate model forecast simulations based on a FAKE future atmosphere using hand picked mathematical equations that have all been too warm for the past 3 decades but never get adjusted ......except made hotter and more wrong because they are political tools NOT science.
They are political tools needed to scare people about a manufactured climate crisis featuring a beneficial gas, greening up the planet but redefined to be a toxic pollutant killing the planet.
