It’s not just about the elite and the masses. There are also several potential counter-elites. And, if you think a bit, counter-masses.

The retrospectively obvious concept of a counter-elite clarifies many otherwise silly discussions. Indeed Elon is accomplished — but he is a technological *counter*-elite, not an establishment elite. (The concept comes from Turchin, but can be generalized beyond how he uses it)
