Elon Musk triggers debate by posting ancient Chinese poem
All thumbs for the Chinese
Nowadays pretty much everything triggers pointless debates in the US.

The sea accepts a hundred rivers. The great person has the capacity to be inclusive.
Under the sky, under the heavens, there is but one family. It just so happens that people are different. - Bruce Lee
The US people will call him a China shill from now on.
A great person with great perspective. Only a small mind will vilified him.
I think Elon was trying to describe the problems within the US today.
That will be a strange concept to the US, their philosophy is to take whatever they want, either by tricks or by force.
He seems more educated than most western po iticians
As far as the US DNA, culture, mentality or historical records goes, that murder for profit is an entitlement. Period.
go tell US this..they are the ones starting a fight
Elon musk know the meaning of this poem is good. If elon musk can expn this poem to all American and the west is better.
Over the last 7 years, I have read a lot of Elon Musk que's regarding China, either it be China's ancient past, and it's rapidly expanding economy and technological advances. Elon Musk is a great admirer of China. He knows China's rise and doesn't fear it, he instead embraces it, unlike the US go nment who is trying to keep China down at all cost to keep China from eclipsing the USA.
The poet is CaoZhi(曹植）。 His brother Caopi (曹丕）,the king of state of Wei(220-227AD), ordered him to write a poem while walking,. The poem must be done at the 7th step or facing execution. His brother was very moved by the poem. They became brother again and CaoZhi inherited the throne after Caopi (曹丕）died. The whole poem has 6 verses, Each verse for each step.
The point stands that America needs to grow the f up and stop being a treacherous sociopath in international affairs.
X Y Z
that's the famous "7 step poem"
Is Musk trying to tell the USA not to kill each other and become so divided or trying to tell the USA to stop attacking other countries, especially China now or both, so we can all work together for the betterment of humanity to thrive and move forward into the future?!
Here are the 5 possibilities that Elom Musk is implying through poem:
US po itics implosion.
Certain policy changes that bring his business unnecessary troubles.
Certain companies (possibly rivals) has formed secret alliance to prosecute him.
long time ago: china offer green card to Elon.
few weeks ago: tesla excluded from US ric vehicle summit (UNBELIEVABLE!)
now: Elon post chinese poem.
message to US go nment?
I prefer action than fancy talk from Elon....
Western people talk nice with a knife in hand.
He finally found the solution to return to the past.
Great poem. Chinese literature and history are so rich and thick.
We are all from the same ancestor. Why does uncle ShameUS want to destory us all?
My interpretation of this is humanity treating each other the way we do while all being the same thing, human.
unfortunately i'm pesimistic and don't think the lust for power and greed will ever be removed from humanity. But it is good to learn something new...
All the American po iticians should try to read this poem at least once, so that the world could change to a better shape from now.
Elon Musk ques a poem by Cao Zhi and all are pondering the meaning. Next he should do some Shakespeare or Blake and set the posters screaming.
