    Re: Tesla,

    Companies with an environment conscious mission have a tendency to optimize what is already good. Think things like bamboo bicycles, vegan mayo, and all electric cars.

    The worse something is, the more you can gain by optimizing it. Things like the suburban house, pay day lending, and diesel powered long haul trucking.

    Tesla has done what every good socially conscious, environmentally friendly company should do: Marketed towards those who need to change the most. Hit ’em where it helps: luxury cars that can smoke supercars in a drag race for those with the money to buy a thrill, and home (clean) energy generation to bring in the “preppers”.

    Me? I’ll be over here eating my Just Mayo, and trying to figure out how to “disrupt” for profit prisons.
