In a new interview, billionaire Elon Musk said the companies that made him a multibillionaire and the richest man in the world are doing charity work. More precisely, he said that they are philanthropy.
Philanthropy in Greek means “love of mankind.” However, nowadays, philanthropy means charity, helping and patronizing those in need.
If you care about the reality of the good and not the perception of it, philanthropy is extremely difficult. SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink, The Boring Co. – philanthropy. If philanthropy is love for humanity, then these companies are philanthropy.
Musk noted that Tesla is “accelerating sustainable energy. This is love for humanity. SpaceX is trying to ensure the long-term survival of mankind. This is love for humanity. The Boring Co. trying to solve problems with traffic, which for most people is hell.”
Elon Musk also said that he does not have his own house and spends the night with friends, but does not intend to refuse a private plane.
