What are you talking about Musk having no long-term goal? He has stated many times that his primary motivation is to make humans an interplanetary species to help ensure civilizations' long-term survival (on the order of millions of years). You badly misread the man.

Perhaps he meant to say no "feasible" long term goal.

Long story short: Marketing skills by Elon.

Musk set up an army of bots on Twitter touting Tesla, move Tesla stock prices and promote himself, sucking in shallow thinking, naive kids as fanbois.

He’s a tried and true manipulator.

How did he get so rich designing the worlds most ugly cars and charging a premium for them?

The left are freaking out with every move Musk makes, or doesn't make. It's a bit comical to observe. I expect that he'll acquire a larger total share of the stock. This is only chapter 2.

Elon Musk is a successful businessman. And above all, this success is a product of his PR strategy. As a result, he has a lot of money, but no long-term goal. When he finds it, when he understands where human civilization is moving and stands not against, but at the head of this flow, then he will be happy not only in money.

He took $8 billion of taxpayer money.

This shows a fundamental misunderstanding of tax rebates and subsidies.

Musk received 4.9 billion in subsidies and rebates. He didn't "get" taxpayer money.

He did, however, pay $11 BILLION in taxes. The most in US history.
