"He is smarter than Einstein": Is Elon Musk a genius or a crazy and dangerous capitalist? | Israel today


In "The Elon Musk Show", the BBC's fascinating docu-series, there is an attempt to shed light on the controversial character of the tycoon - who on the one hand is presented as having a persistent swagger that creates a normal work environment, and on the other hand as a brilliant man who is yet to change the fate of humanity

Genius or charlatan?

A tyrant and narcissist, or an entrepreneur whose name will be engraved forever?

A three-part series by the BBC, "The Elon Musk Show" (the last episode tonight on yes), tries to decipher who the person behind the brand is, and does so through interviews with those closest to him - his mother and father, his past wives, friends and business partners, Rivals and journalists.

They all talk openly about their complex relationship with the poster boy of capitalism.

They describe frequent tantrums of a type who makes excessive demands on those around him, producing a toxic and abrasive work environment;

But at the same time, they testify with admiration to his genius, to his rare leadership and persuasion ability, and to his inspiring vision.

Interviewees break down in tears as they relive interactions with him, and all together outline his path to the top - from the difficult childhood to the throne of the richest man in the world.

Musk is portrayed as a restless and obsessive man, who is simultaneously trying to revolutionize the automobile industry, develop a private space program, and build a cult of personality for himself.

But the fascinating docu is merely the exposition of his life.

Will, as predicted in the series, Musk change the fate of humanity and soon establish a civilization on Mars - or will he be remembered as a crazy inventor who jumped over the navel and crashed?

"He is smarter than Einstein," declared one of his senior employees.

But everything is relative, isn't it?

And that is the entire Torah.
