Summary: we unrepentantly, unapologetically praise Elon Musk for his relentless effort to make humanity multi-planetary and develop enabling technology along the way. We realize that, of course, he can only be a flawed person like everyone else, but what Elon is doing is more important than other things. Occupy Mars!
