Re: great, back to the "same old same old"
You absolutely cannot win a rigged game unless you play by the rules, you can't even get a seat at the fucking table unless you play by the rules. Once you're in you can innovate your ass off and twist the rules in your favor, but you've got to get there first.
This is boring, standard bullshit that covers every aspect of aerospace. Mudslinging and public accusations are so common nobody pays them any attention. The Internet probably saved the entire state of Maine from being turned into paper for printing accusatory op-ed pieces in industry journals. Janes had pretty much become a tabloid until they shoved that shit online. If Elon Musk wasn't involved this wouldn't have even appeared here. His comments are indistinguishable from the eleventybillion similar comments made in the past 4.7 minutes.
Aerospace, automobile manufacturing, freight and passenger rail, communications, all those industries are run like big city mobs and you've got to prove you can play there before you get in the door. It sucks, but that's reality. If spacey stuff is something Mr. Musk really wants to do this is the only way to do it. As I say, unfortunate, but reality often is.
