Yeah I don’t know why people think Musk won this. He already lost since he never wanted the company. And he lost while losing 60 billion in tesla valuation on his own personal wealth this year.

Does he still win in the earning money game? of course but this was a giant face smacking loss.
The other marquee incel/edgelord hero is no longer the president so they need another god figure to worship.

and the same folks still sticking up for Elon were also in the camp that thought Putin plays 5d chess.
there are some ppl that are extremely vulnerable to falling in love with cringe machismo
Trump
Putin
Elon

Incels and otherwise sheltered men who lack a strong father figure in their life so they look up to dorks like those because they think money/power is some sort of moral arbiter.

except those guys were making mistakes while trying to do the best for their company in terms of forward vision.
Musk stuck his nose in a place were he didnt belong and actually created his own problem. it wasnt like he was already the CEO of twitter then decided to invest in the wrong path. IMHO this isnt comparable to Jobs' errors or Zuck's metaverse

True. I will say though I think the core cause is the same - hubris. Part of the reason so many CEOs are so sure of Themselves is because to really lead a company, especially innovation, you have to be. You have ot beleive more and in sometimes in the face of odds and that you will achieve your goals. The downside is if you have too many successes you suddenly believe you can overcome anything.

IT’s a tough line to walk. So while I agree jobs and zuck might be a bit less bad. To me it’s very comparable - they started having pure faith in their own beliefs.

Anyway considering Musk wanted out of the deal, everything else is moot, he lost just on that basis there. Stupid for folks to say otherwise. It is entertaining though to watch they think billionaires are all seeing, infallible. the reality is they just fail fast and aren’t afraid to try. That’s the secret to a lot of the sucess.
