What Do Elon Musk, Socrates, Nietzsche, (And Maybe You) Share In Common?

February 25th, 2018 | by Steve Bakker

Until April 1st, 2016, the only thing I knew about Tesla Motors came from a news story reporting on an esoteric car company out of California that had appropriated the last name of famous inventor Nikola Tesla, and was marketing an awesome electric car with a price tag of $100,000.

As others would have it, he's a savior of the world who will "colonize" Mars and transition the world away from fossil fuels

It's a misperception that doesn't align with Musk's real-world experience at his companies, SpaceX and Tesla. In contrast, Elon Musk displays a boldly wild imagination and high tolerance for risk
