Elon Musk may be the ultimate crony capitalist – the PT Barnum of our time.
But to give PT his due, he was an honest con man.
He never used the government to make his marks hand over their money. People stepped right up without a bayonet in their backs.
Elon, on the other hand, depends entirely on the coercive power of government to line his pockets. Take that away and Musk goes away.
Unfortunately, he’s not going away. He’s going deeper.
