I used to want a Tesla but Elon’s craziness has really turned me off the brand.


KebabGud t1_jabmxlp wrote

just curious.. what brand do you have?


Sassy_Weatherwax t1_jabtz06 wrote

I'm not the poster you're referring to but we have a Rivian and it's great! I think it's a little over-engineered in the way most tech-bro things are, but it drives like a dream, has a ton of storage, handles beautifully in the rain and snow, and off roads like a champ. Overall they have great customer service and they're not owned by a megalomaniac man baby.


KebabGud t1_jac2y94 wrote

Amazon is a major owner of Rivian (arguably holding them afloat) And while Bezos is not a man baby he is a megalomaniac


Sassy_Weatherwax t1_jacwo1n wrote

good point, he is also a rocket douche. But he's not involved in the day to day operations the way Musk is with Tesla.


KebabGud t1_jad4y8w wrote

You are totally right Bezos has nothing to do with the day to day of Rivian and is also not the Majority stakeholder. the point i was hoping to make was that people tend to hyper fixate on Elon and then totally ignore the horrible things associated with other car brand. Rivian is somewhat safe currently in that regard, even if their association with Amazon is troubling (says the man who has 3 packages from amazon in route).

But if you look at companies like Lucid, their Majority stakeholder (61%) is the Saudi Government. In terms of who i would support between Elon and The Saudi Government , Well I'm picking the Edgelord manchild every day (until he goes full Supervillian.)

And old school Companies like Ford and VW.. well Henry Ford was pure Evil and VW was founded by Hitler himself..
A friend of mine Sold his Tesla because of Elon and got himself a Mustang Mach-E.. he is now the butt of a thousand jokes (and yes Henry ford is long dead but still the evil he did should never be forgotten)


And to add, Bezos is pretty much the epitome of Rocket douche, but i find it hard to call Elon a Rocket douche these days.
You have to take into consideration that Bezos has so far not even reached orbit and most of the launches are expensive joyrides while SpaceX is now the primary launchprovider for NASA and the only American launch provider that can deliver Humans to the ISS, They had in 2022 61 orbital launches, that ties with the Soviet unions record from 1980. and they are building the next Moon lander.

Elon is a Douche, but he is not a Rocket Douche, thats a title only Bezos gets to keep (especially after the stunt he pulled with the Artemis Program)


Sassy_Weatherwax t1_jae1uo6 wrote

I completely agree with you that the money trails of horrible entities are harder and harder to avoid. It's a symptom of the f*cked up late stage capitalism we've got. I do think Elon is a rocket douche because I'm deeply uncomfortable with that creepy edgelord having that much control over our space program. But I get what you are saying-Bezos is a cosplaying space fool.


KebabGud t1_jae4pf3 wrote

> I do think Elon is a rocket douche because I'm deeply uncomfortable with that creepy edgelord having that much control over our space program

I would not worry too much about that. What SpaceX did started an entire new industry thats resulted it several companies reaching orbit (But not Bezos).

Rocket Lab routinely launch their Electron rockets into orbit and their new Neutron rocket will probably be the rocket that replaces the SpaceX Falcon9 (when Starship is in full operation.)

Firefly Aerospace have kinda reached orbit (something Bezos is yet to manage)

We are still just in the start of the new Space age and its SO much cheaper this time.


Sassy_Weatherwax t1_jaefmfo wrote

I hope you're right. I worry that he's already got enough power and money to maintain a monopoly, at least on the critical infrastructure...but hopefully that's not true. It's frightening though, that Ukraine's internet and communication capability rests in his hands, especially because he's buddying up to authoritarians and is susceptible to flattery by bad actors just like his orange twin, Trump.


KebabGud t1_jaemg72 wrote

There is also a lot of misinformation out there regarding the use of Starlink in Ukraine.

Like when SpaceX said they cant use if for Drone strikes, people started complaining that Elon was sucking up to Putin ..

the reality is if they use it as a weapon or weapon component it will be classified as one and thus regulated by international Arms trade restrictions and made almost impossible to be sold outside the US..

there are a lot of billions invested in it

A select 40ish countries you mean? Show me a legacy manufacturer with actual inventory more available and I’ll eat my words on that one I guess. Performance isn’t dependent on location so that still stands. And as far as charger network where does a single manufacturer have Tesla beat? China maybe? This is coming from someone who shopped for and bought an EV recently. What EV did you end up choosing?

Yea, dudes a piece of shit but everyone loses their mind over that too. Not saying you do, but damn some people are fucking crazy over their hate for him. Just take a completely neutral look at r/enoughmuskspam. People dedicate they lives to hate him, just like the people that simp him. It's not healthy to obsess over hating something, even if the person/thing deserves it.

The less I hear about him, the better. I can't imagine losing any sleep over hating someone I'll never meet or have my life impacted by in any way other than seeing something on the internet that i dont like.


Rafcdk t1_jabrumu wrote

Of course if you only look at a sub dedicated to post things about him you gonna think think something like this, it's called selection bias. Dude does a lot of shitty things that end up in the news and the fact that he conned a lot of people into thinking he was the real world version of Tony Stark and more and more people are realizing they fell for his scam explains a lot more the influx of people hating on him now. And even with that being said I don't think people lose any sleep over him tbh.

That's why there are tons of people that hate him and post about and not for example Amancio Ortega.

press_B_for_bombs t1_jadg9l6 wrote

The majority of the mainstream Reddit community decided a year or two ago that Elon = Bad. They conveniently ignore the significant technological achievements his companies are responsible for and instead focus on how he agrees with some Republicans on some things, sometimes.

People lump celebrities into categories. Not too long ago the mainstream Reddit opinion was Elon = Good and Reddit was full of cringe memes about Elon saving the world or being a "badass". Now, Elon = Bad.

In my personal opinion, Elon is a wildly successful and eccentric person who takes big risks. I admire that about him.

He also seems a full of himself, likes to push peoples buttons on purpose and seemingly does this impulsively. That I don't admire so much. I also wouldn't be surprised to learn that he has Asperger's or something.


tlsr t1_jadiqxy wrote

His behavior goes beyind "pushing people's buttons." He's turned into a very typical MAGAt -- pushing lies, etc.

It's interesting that it took him but a couple very short weeks to go from "we need balance, both democrats and republicans" to "vote straight republican" to full on MAGA, pushing right wing propoganda.

In short: I don't give a fuck what's he's accomplished (as if he did it all by himself). He's a shit stain and I don't need reddit to tell me that; I can see it with my own eyes.

People like him aren't worth "admiring" no matter what he's accomplished.


press_B_for_bombs t1_jadxlw2 wrote

When was he MAGA? I don't think he likes Trump very much at all. He just dislikes the current administration more. Pretty sure he voted against him in 2016.

Which, agree or disagree, its not an extreme's about half the population of the countries opinion.

I don't agree with your sentiment about not lending any respect to the tech and engineering innovations his companies have brought about.

What terror has the man really unleashed on the world that would at all negate the obvious net positives his contributions achieved? I don't think his political criticisms on either side can justify ignoring that.

I'm not even saying people should love him or even like him. Only that the hate and moral outrage just seems performative and over the top....which is what social media (Reddit) seems to highlight.


tlsr t1_jae7zst wrote

MAGA is more than just Trump now.


>moral outrage just seems performative

What sort of outrage should people have to wards a guy that simps for an open fascist (DeSantis) and claims to be "neutral" while telling everyone to "vote republican" and constantly tweets thiogns that align very well with the far right (aka, MAGAs)?

And speaking of performative, have you listend to that douche lately?

His "net postive" is not positive at all. He's got a big microphone and he's using it to push forth fascism and his own naked narcisism.

My outrage is anyhting but performative, I can tell you that. That guy can go fuck himself, hard, with a very long, very large, very dry dildo.


press_B_for_bombs t1_jaefbof wrote

Ah, so I need them to affect me before I don't like what they do. That's very MAGA.

And by the way, what makes you so certain of that anyway?


press_B_for_bombs t1_jaeikm2 wrote

I don't know what is "MAGA" or not in the derogatory sense. My assumption is that it's the counter to Right wingers saying things are "woke". Which is exactly my point about shoving people into categories. Elon = MAGA = BAD. Very succinct.

Rolling the dice that you don't live in Florida or have any interaction with Elon. Also you haven't mentioned a single thing either of them has actually done other than show support for a political party you don't agree with. Which I guess you'd have to label half the country as "Shit Stains"... If that is all it takes.


tlsr t1_jaejpye wrote

Elon doesn't need to be associated with anything to be bad. He is, in fact, bad.

And it's pretty revealing that you don't think people should be concerend with things unless they're directly affected.

And yes, if you're MAGA, there's a better chance than not that you're a shit stain. (also note it's not "half the country" -- that's the fugure MAGAs really want people to believe but it isn't true.)

I recently ordered a model Y and I hate myself for it. I feel dirty. Musk is pretty high up on my list of horrible human beings so I had firmly set my sights on a some other EV. Then Tesla dropped the price by 20% and it no longer made financial sense to get anything else. Musk only owns 13% of Tesla so I see it more as supporting the shareholders and not so much the Elon. I honestly hope that Tesla ends up ousting him as CEO. That would be the best possible scenario for Tesla.

Because retaining the meanings of words is really important for them to not become useless sentence fodder.
