Leaders and martial arts: a fateful marriage
Do we want leaders who train with martial arts? I find this bizarre. Our leaders are adolescence, trapped in the world of finance and technology, accepting neoliberalism. Thrilled by combat and competition. drunk on wealth. such interesting people but as leaders? I fear for the way they would handle China (competitive rather than seeking harmony), and pushing technology to handle climate change.

I did an impromptu training session with @elonmusk for a few hours yesterday. I'm extremely impressed with his strength, power, and skill, on the feet and on the ground. It was epic. It's really inspiring to see Elon and Mark doing martial arts, but I think the world is served far better if they train martial arts but not fight in the cage. That said, as Elon says, the most entertaining outcome is the most likely... I'm there for them, no matter what.
