Elon Musk is not one to pull punches, even when they are aimed at the hosts of the very event he was invited to give a speech to in the first place.
While delivering a speech (remotely) at the World Government Summit, Musk made it crystal clear where he stands on the issue of global government. “I know this is called the ‘World Government Summit,’ but I think we should be a little bit concerned about actually becoming too much of a single world government,” the Tesla CEO told the crowd of elites in Dubai at their global powwow.
“If I may say, we want to avoid creating a civilizational risk by having — frankly, this might sound a little odd — too much cooperation between governments,” Musk continued.
In other words, Musk is warning to not put all the eggs in one worldwide government basket. Sounds like commonsense, actually.
Then, Musk elaborated on the point, explaining, “While Rome was falling, Islam was rising, so you had a caliphate doing well while Rome was doing terribly. And that ended up being a source of preservation of knowledge and many scientific advancements. So I think we need to be a little conscious of being too much of a single civilization because if we are too much of a single civilization then the whole thing may collapse.”
“I’m obviously not suggesting war or anything like that. But I think we want to be a little wary of actually cooperating too much,” Musk continued. “It sounds a little odd, but we want to have some amount of civilizational diversity so that if something does go wrong with some part of civilization that the whole thing doesn’t just collapse and humanity keeps moving forward.”
And there you have it, perhaps the most concise argument against the elites’ endless quest to exert a worldwide government.
