All The Gnus That Give Two Shits
SpaceX Reportedly Fired Employees Who Wrote Letter Criticizing Elon Musk
Musk Declines Comment, Cites Non-Disclosure Agreement
After several SpaceX employees were fired for bullying and making valuable assets to the company uncomfortable by releasing a public letter criticizing billionaire Musk’s behavior, most sentient humans are looking forward to seeing how Twitter will be any different under an owner who apparently subscribes to A. J. Liebling’s definition of freedom of the press.
I much prefer H. L. Mencken’s version.
The difference is subtle, I grant you, seeing as in both cases, ownership is the key to this freedom, which appears to remain as exclusionary today as it was when God said: “Get the fuck out of the Garden, you two.”
