Yes, very interesting article. I've always been fascinated with creative destruction ever since I first heard of it in a history class in university called History of Business in North America. It also confirms to me that I have no interest in renting out houses like my brother does, especially if I can participate in shaping the future instead.

I was going to ask if Elon would mind being called "The Disruptor", but a quick search informed me that this name is already taken by a supervillain, so definitely not a good fit. Regardless, I hope he keeps disrupting braindead industries to infuse truth and common sense.

Yes, the establishment hates innovation but happy with their profit margins.
