As usual, someone tweeted back with a common criticism of a tech industry saying “innovators should concentrate on solving existing problems”.
Musk’s response highlighted the tech ethics and was very unique. He replied:
Our existence cannot just be about solving one miserable problem after another. There need to be reasons to live.
He emphasised the point of making the world more beautiful, wonderful alongside efforts of making human existence “less awful”
