Why do people fall for the Elon Musk BS? He’s a modern day slave owner.

I don’t fucking get it? Between his factories, various mining endeavors, tax dodging, and human exploitation, he’s just a modern day slave owner!

How the hell did he convince so many people he’s the face of ethical, moral, and progressive capitalism? Even Reddit loves him because he’s β€œmeme-y and cool” or some crap. How can we fix this and help people understand he’s the epitome of our late stage capitalism in the modern world?

Update: I really appreciate everyone’s comments, I’ve read them all. I’ve seen other views, counter points, people worried about humanities future if we aren’t in space, and people who feel the end unfortunately justifies the means. All stuff I have to think about and form my opinion a bit better. Have a good week guys/gals

Edit: I’m not out here trying to change the world’s view of Elon or something, I didn’t intend more than like 15-20 upvotes. There’s literally no way to just make socialism happen by tomorrow and we unfortunately have to use the tools at hand. Private sector space exploration and EVs are currently needed, but I don’t have to like it or it’s consequences. I can only hope a decade or two from now the harm was worth it in some way

Whatever happens tomorrow, just know that this week, the common wage-slaves rose up and stuck it to the 1%.

The ongoing collapse of the naked short market and the exposure of this corrupt practice has literally lead to the downfall of at least one hedge fund, owned by eccentric and greedy billionaires who rarely even communicated with the media or the general public. These hedge funds were basically established by extremely wealthy individuals with 500 million to "invest" - a friend of a family friend, sort of deal - typical 1% corrupt incestuous shit. I've rubbed elbows with this crowd - slimy, soulless and rotten to the bone.

Anyways - I just wanted to say that not only did I find yesterday's 2% selloff, impressive (hedge funds desperately freed up liquidity in anticipation) . Also - I'm legitimately proud of our fellow wage slaves for not only exposing the scam to the world (the general public is now increasingly aware of the establishment). -Many of these folks are outright altruistic. The billionaires would never be this altruistic. Jeff Bezos literally donated less than I did, on a % basis, and I donate $200 a month on my wage slave salary. If you go to r/wallstreetbets you can see posts of altruism, donations, etc etc. The incestuous, soulless billionaires donate to their own religious orders, and view the general public as consumer slaves. Their donations exist to merely balance their tax sheets, and fortify tax loopholes.

This clearly demonstrates that the mentally ill psychopathic soul-less billionaires who control the vast majority of the worlds fiat currency do not represent, in any way, the nature of the common human. No, we are a noble species, just ruled by sick psychopathic elites who were born with brain disorders.

Fuck the rich, they deserve to get eaten, and I hope they do.

If theres no difference between a white or black actor playing a white historical figure, than there us no difference between a white or a black actor playing an african american slave.

I have nothing against race blind casting, but if I can't criticism choosing a black actor playing Alexander Hamilton or the queen of England without being a "racist" than its not racist for a slave to be played by a white actor. I know this might "trigger" people, but its something we need to think about.

I’m Tara Roberts, Nat Geo Storytelling Fellow and I’ve been telling stories about Black scuba divers searching for slave shipwrecksβ€”AMA

EDIT: Thank you all for your questions! Check out my RPAN that I just did here too: https://www.reddit.com/rpan/r/RedditMasterClasses/llzal5

Hi! I’m Tara Roberts, a Storytelling Fellow at National Geographic. I spent the last two years following and telling stories about a group of Black scuba divers searching for slave shipwrecks around the world. AMA.

I hitched a ride with the divers to Mozambique, then traveled to South Africa, Senegal, Benin, Togo, Costa Rica and St. Croix to learn more about their dive missions, understand why this search for slave shipwrecks is so important and what kind of impact they hope their discoveries will have on the world. Most of these divers are not professional divers or maritime archaeologists, btw. They are teachers, students, civil servants, retired militaryβ€”just ordinary people who are passionate about scuba diving ... but who wanted to dive with a purpose.

We made a short film about me and the divers here. And I wrote about my experience here.

I am also currently at work on a narrative podcast that will go into even deeper detail about my journey around the world. You can listen to a teaser here. You can also hear more about my work on the Overheard at National Geographic podcast here. And for more information about the divers and their incredible work, check out their website and the work of the Slave Wrecks Project.

If you want to follow me, you can do so on Instagram @storiesfromthedepths and @curvypath_tara and also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sftdpodcast Thanks!

The fictional Captain Jack Aubrey, RN, captures a slave ship and is so appalled by the conditions he finds that he chains the captain and officers to the ship and then has his squadron use it for gunnery practice until it sinks. Were the Royal Navy very harsh with slave traders they captured?

For more context, prior to his mission to interdict slavers off the coast of Benin, Aubrey had been sort of tepidly in favor of slavery. He often quoted his hero, Lord Nelson, to the effect that the abolition of slavery would be tantamount to the abolition of the Royal Navy (did Nelson actually say this?). However, after seeing it in person, he is sickened and furious and much more enthusiastic about his mission to hinder the slave trade, and to make his point he treats the captured vessel as described.

Many events in the Aubrey-Maturin series are at least loosely based on real-life events. How realistic is this one?

[Excerpt | Angron: Slave of Nuceria] A World Eater Librarian gets the Nails.

Context: In the Prologue of the book, Iocare, a librarian of the 18th company, gets implanted with a prototype of the Nails. Doesn't end well. There's the part where he speaks about why he wants the nails, how the nails are put in and how everyone is very happy about this fantastic decision.

> Iocare turned his eyes back to the ceiling. He answered in Nagrakali, the guttural tongue quickly supplanting Low Gothic as those born of Terra became increasingly outnumbered in the Legion’s ranks. β€˜Pain is the purpose of the Butcher’s Nails. Pain is what made the primarch who he is. If the Legion is to succeed in forging unity with him, then it will be forged through pain.’

> ...

> The sharp buzzing whine of the saw tickled at Iocare’s inner ear. As it made contact with his flesh, the sound grew lower, softer, wetter. His left eye twitched as a fine mist of his own blood dappled his face. The air was filled with the hot metallic richness of transhuman vitality. The initial sting of the cut came and went, overtaken by a migraine grind as the mono-molecular cutting blade sliced its way through genhanced Β­muscle and ate into the World Eater’s reinforced skull.

> Previous prototypes of the Nails had run the gamut of entry points for affixing the implants to the subject’s brain. Substantial progress had been made with a model that had attached itself at the temples, but it had been discarded with the others after once more it had ended in failure, and more dead or blood-maddened World Eaters had been cast into the incinerators of the 203rd Expeditionary Fleet.

> The iteration being tested on Iocare was a wholly new concept, a fan-like curve of dark iron and snaking sub-dermal connectors designed to be clamped over the front of the brow like a crown. Vaion lifted the device from its container, bringing it beside the table as Korit withdrew his saw-tipped servo arm, dripping with dark Legiones Astartes blood.

> Principal incision complete,’ said Korit flatly. β€˜Prepare for installation.’

> Vaion leaned over Iocare, his hands working in an ordered dance. The flesh around the incision was pulled clear and pinned back, with any excess blood suctioned away by a tool in the Apothecary’s gauntlet. Time was a factor, due to a Space Marine’s rapid healing ability, and so they worked swiftly. **Vaion reached for a table beside him, turning back to the slab with a glittering steel spreader in each hand. He pressed the instruments into the wide fi
