I also watched the whole podcast as soon as I could and it was fascinating, I believe Elon has already proved himself as a leader that given the resources can do a lot of good in this world, for everyone. You can see, hear and feel that he truly cares, of how many CEO's of that caliber can you say the same? How many CEO's would even dare to sit down with Joe to talk for 3 hours? For example this is what CEO of Nestle has said:
The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means that as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution. The other view says that water is a foodstuff like any other, and like any other foodstuff it should have a market value.
Nestle is known for selling water for billions while paying pennies for it. I'm sure these kind of people would be happy if we'd begin taxing the air we breathe. They'd salivate like Homer Simpson from just imaging the situation.
Elon Musk is someone who people want to support, I just hope all the negativity doesn't bring him down and he doesn't work himself to death. Because we truly need him and about million more.
But we all can shape the world around us even if it feels pointless, for example, being in Steem rather than Facebook or Instagram is a change. I always saw Steem as a tool to reward the good in the world and I still believe in it. There are lot of good people doing good things here, I just hope more good people join us and we can build the world to be a better place. Steem on
