Musk, Twitter, and Skepticism

Elon Musk takes over Twitter and the entire universe explodes–either in agony or in ecstasy. Wait just a minute now, though, and think this thing through. There are a few things to consider.

  1. Musk wins his gamble and turns Twitter into a huge soapbox of utterly uncontrolled free speech. Everyone benefits except those who want to control the narrative by controlling everyone else. He is seen as a savior by those who support him and as a devil by those who don’t.
  2. Musk loses his gamble and has to admit defeat publicly. The enormous forces who do not want free speech are arrayed against him in a unified effort to block him from bringing back the soapbox. He is seen as a failure by those who defeat him and a victim by those who desperately wanted him to succeed.
  3. Musk is only play-acting and the whole venture is just another scripted scene in the ‘divide and conquer’ strategy of the super-elite Ubermenschen to subjugate the entire world to their rule. He is seen as a fraud.

Savior. Failure. Fraud. Have I left anything out?

Color me skeptical.

Glenn Greenwald has an excellent take on this. In an interview with Tucker Carlson, he explains why the odds are stacked against Musk and why we should not rush to judgement one way or the other. The fact is that Musk has always been a part of the immensely wealthy world and he has never shown any consistent dedication to the cause of human liberty and free speech. Why now? Has he, like some religious zealot who has just ‘found Jesus’, suddenly converted to a different, more exciting, belief system about which he cannot keep quiet? Or is there something else which we are not being told?

Color me skeptical.

I can imagine the possibility that this is nothing more than a carefully scripted act in the ongoing drama which is rapidly approaching the ‘final curtain’. Of course, the same thing could be said about Putin and the war in Ukraine, which erupted seemingly out of nowhere even though the lines were written and played out meticulously long before the first shots were fired.

Remember how, just two years ago, virtually every government rushed to trot out and enact the party line about C.O.V.I.D., with only a few isolated small-time exceptions (Was Sweden a bit actor in the play?), proving that it was possible to manipulate public opinion from one single vantage point? Remember how quickly the scam (scandal, scheme, shit-show) was scrapped overnight and the world’s attention was diverted by the invasion of Ukraine two months ago? Is it so hard to rationalize that the Western powers-that-be have taken action to create another sensational headliner to distract the masses now that Putin seems to have gained the upper hand and has Europe by the throat (pay for your natural gas in roubles or go without and freeze to death)?

In my opinion, C.O.V.I.D. happened because the ‘dear leaders’ saw an opportunity to consolidate extreme power over their own populations and advance the cause of total control. In this, they acted in concert. However, these people, wealthy, powerful, knowledgeable, influential, are still flawed human beings and, as such, are susceptible to the same conditions as everyone else. They are greedy, proud, arrogant. They make mistakes. They wage war, not only against the peons and plebeians, but also against each other. This last may be the most important thing to keep in mind. They wage war against each other! Their intense desire to be the top dog, the King of the Hill, is their Achille’s Heel, the one thing which will always and forever be their weakness by which they can be defeated. Which may or may not explain Ukraine and Putin’s gamble.

In the end, they all work for and are subject to the unseen king of the dirt pile–Satan, the ultimate power-hungry, attention-craving, insanely jealous madman, who is willing to destroy everything, including himself, in order to get his way. As such, they appear to be successful, but in the end, like their ‘dear leader’, they will fail as well.

Whether Elon Musk wins, loses, or is exposed is trivial to this.
