I have to put this article about space after the video about politics because both feature different cults: The Cult of Trump and The Cult of Musk. With not too much difference between the two.
This idea that there are givers and takers, that people who are not white are the takers…is fundamental to many, if not the majority, of conservatives. Likewise, this idea that government, specifically the Space Agency, are also takers and only the only-for-profit NewSpace semi-divine “entrepreneurs” are not stealing is fundamental to that ideology. It is no coincidence that the majority of Musk supporters are also rabid Trumpists.
