Musk = Brezhnev?

Back in the days of Socialism in the Soviet Union, getting a car was just like getting a Tesla today. Put your name down and wait a couple of years and hope that it would be delivered. And, or course, no complaining about quality or faults would be tolerated.

Then there are many other parallels: an obsession with rocketry, haemorrhaging money, an over sensitivity to questioning or perceived criticism, a worship of technology.

The difference is that Brezhnev seemed to be able to sustain personal relationships longer.
