That's extremely hopeful of you, Spike. While I wish I could have some of 
the optimism you have, I haven't seen any evidence that indicates that 
Elon is anything but clueless.

Platforming right wingers who advocate for abuse and violence isn't 
somehow balancing the scales with the "woke", like he says. It just proves 
that he really doesn't understand humans at all.

BTW - you're right that he has demonstrated that nobody, particularly 
not he, can be the arbiter of truth.
