The Doers vs The Takers: Tesla is building a hardcore litigation department from where Tesla will directly initiate & execute lawsuits. Elon Musk is Looking for hardcore streetfighters, not white-shoe lawyers like Perkins or Cooley who thrive on corruption. Elon Musk promises that “There will be blood!”
Here is how Elon Musk
fired the opening salvos in his litigation war:
is building a hardcore litigation department where we directly initiate & execute lawsuits. The team will report directly to me. Please send 3 to 5 bullet points describing evidence of exceptional ability. justice@tesla
- We will never seek victory in a just case against us, even if we will probably win.
- We will never surrender/settle an unjust case against us, even if we will probably lose.
Please include links to cases you have tried.
Looking for hardcore streetfighters, not white-shoe lawyers like Perkins or Cooley who thrive on corruption.
There will be blood.“ Musk concluded.
The real battle is actually not over ownership of Twitter, but over who controls the infrastructure that will influence the results of the upcoming Mid-term elections, as well as the power to pave the way to win the election for the next President of the United States, who is essentially also the de facto supreme leader of the so-called "Free” World (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Taiwan, Britain and most of Europe) and a bit of an influence on other territories.
This is a war in which the existing soldiers are lawyers, for whom loyalty is merely a product for sale.
When it comes to the economic means of waging this war, even Musk does not have enough money, power and bureaucracy-leverage to compete against the battle-hardened forces opposing him.
And as for dirty tricks, the opposition are proven world-class practitioners. Notwithstanding his exceptional talents, Elon Musk
will never even begin to learn the skills of deception and manipulation that the veterans on the other side have already forgotten. In the school of the dark arts, all the available places have been taken by people climbing up the greasy pole to become politicians, lawyers or hookers.
Musk can win this battle only if Jeff Bezos joins him to fight for the future of America and the really-Free World. This battle can be won only if these two talented guys leverage their cumulative power, instead of fighting with each other like two jealous teenagers.
This battle can be won only if Musk helps Bezos become the next President of the United States; if Bezos helps Musk take over Twitter; and if together they jointly acquire Facebook
Because, if we also count the number of fake accounts on Facebook
, we will probably find that Facebook
's current valuation is at least double its real value. If we count the fake clicks, fake advertising exposure and fake Big Data that fake users produces, we will find that Google is also overvalued, at 2 to 3 times more than it should be.
The huge revenues of these monolithic companies is based on ruthlessly scamming their advertisers. This is indeed a very profitable bubble. But it is not one that will last forever.
Am I fantasizing when I think that these two tycoons will team up to protect the world - and themselves - from the bureaucrats who will eventually eliminate them both, one tycoon at a time? Maybe. But every great innovation begins with a fantasy. To make the impossible, obvious. To make the obvious, possible.
Please, my dear friends Jeff and Elon, stop weakening yourselves by quarrelling with each other. Begin to realize that you are both on the same side, opposing the deadly intent of the bureaucracy.
Because the main problem of the United States is not the dispute between those who mistakenly call themselves Democrats and those who mistakenly call themselves Republicans. Rather it is a battle between the aspiration for democracy and the current form of government that is far from real democracy but instead merely a bureaucracy. A bureaucracy which has been militarized to its turn opponents into cannon-fodder. A bureaucracy where the two of them, Bezos and Musk, will sooner or later be its next unfortunate victims.
American breakfast: one rich tycoon at a time.
