People like Elon Musk are frightening to me, not because they have wealth or influence, but because they have a completely rabid personality cult dedicated not to Elon Musk the human – but to that eccentric nerd underdog millionaire that people believe he represents. 

His cult does not look at him as an actual person – but as an archetype. They want to see him live out some Tony Stark esque lifestyle, even though the man himself has done virtually nothing of scientific note. A real-life superhero for nerds who are desperate to live vicariously through him. 

On a related note – Nikola Tesla died in poverty partially because he had worked on providing early solar, and hydroelectric energy to the masses . Attempting to usurp his scientific legacy through establishing a corporation which panders to the wealthy is a cultural crime and I refuse to believe Elon has the slightest shred of respect for the man as he was.
