Elon Musk is the perfect embodiment of a mind ruined by capitalism, not because he makes supervillain paraphernalia, but because his plan for all of that supervillain paraphernalia is to market it to the upper middle class.

me: so what do you do?

Elon Musk: I own a company that makes flamethrowers, armored truck, underground tunnels and space ships.

me: <subtly backpedaling> okaaaay. what do you do with all that stuff?

Musk: well, most of it I sell to suburbanite dads who read too much Omni in high school.

me: <backpedaling intensifies>

@lrhodes honestly i would RATHER he were marketing himself to the working class because he'd have been eaten alive YEARS ago
