Elon Musk claims that Crossroads, a prestigious Los Angeles school, influenced his daughter’s turn to communism. Musk expresses concern over the school’s teachings and their impact on his relationship with his daughter. Here’s the story in full.
Expensive Private School Blamed for Daughter’s Communist Ideology
In a startling revelation, Elon Musk, the brains behind groundbreaking ventures like Tesla and SpaceX, has reportedly blamed a prestigious private school in Los Angeles for his strained relationship with his daughter.
Musk alleges that this progressive institution transformed his daughter, Vivian Jenna Wilson, into a staunch communist who now views wealth as evil.
Insights from Isaacson’s Biography
This revelation came to light via an excerpt from Walter Isaacson’s anticipated biography, “Elon Musk,” which was recently showcased in The Wall Street Journal.
Crossroads School’s Influence
According to Musk, the renowned Crossroads School in Santa Monica has played a pivotal role in shaping his daughter’s belief system, influencing her to transition and to think of money as an evil.
A Glimpse into His Personal Life
Delving into Musk’s personal life, the biography details an intimate conversation that unfolded between his then-16-year-old child, who initially went by Xavier and later transitioned to Jenna, and the wife of Musk’s brother.
“Hey, I’m transgender, and my name is now Jenna,” was the message. A subsequent plea followed, “Don’t tell my dad.”
The Strained Father-Daughter Relationship
Although Musk tried to react supportively upon discovering his child’s decision, tensions escalated.
Jenna, as detailed in Isaacson’s biography, not only embraced communist ideologies but also severed ties with her father.
Jenna’s Shift to Communist Ideologies
“She went beyond socialism to being a full communist and thinking that anyone rich is evil,” Musk was quoted saying.
Such sentiments, as Musk suggests, echo the lessons taught at Crossroads, where the annual tuition fee is over $50,000.
A Deep-Rooted Rift
Fast forward to the present, the now 19-year-old Vivian Jenna Wilson has not only transitioned her identity legally but also expressed a keen desire to disassociate from her billionaire father.
This deep-seated rift has tormented Musk, with Isaacson writing that it distresses the Tesla CEO “more than anything in his life.”
Despite Musk’s efforts to mend bridges, his approaches have been rebuffed. “I’ve made many overtures,” a somber Musk admits, “But she doesn’t want to spend time with me.”
The Woke Influence
In Isaacson’s writings, Musk’s obsession with “woke” ideology emerges as a significant theme.
The billionaire mogul sees it as a force that stifles diverse voices, notably those leaning right-wing or anti-establishment.
The Link Between Woke Ideology and Twitter
This mindset, which Musk felt had influenced his daughter, parallels the environment he believes platforms like Twitter promote.
Triggering a Twitter Acquisition
The biography implies that this rift with Vivian played a role in triggering Musk’s aversion to ‘woke’ culture.
Such was his apprehension that it steered the billionaire to make a $42 billion acquisition of Twitter in the previous year.
A Woke Influence on His Daughter and Society
Musk told Isaacson, “Unless the woke mind virus, which is fundamentally anti-science, anti-merit, and anti-human in general, is stopped, civilization will never become multi-planetary.”
Singling Out Crossroads School
Musk has previously alluded to ‘woke’ educational institutions shaping his child’s views, but this is the first instance where he has singled out Crossroads – a school that caters to the offspring of the affluent, boasting a glittering array of alumni.
Crossroads School’s Notable Alumni
Established in 1971 with roots tracing back to the St. Augustine By-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Santa Monica, Crossroads has become a place of learning for emerging Hollywood prodigies.
The institution proudly lists celebrities like Zooey Deschanel, Jonah Hill, Jack Black, Kate Hudson, and Gwyneth Paltrow as former students.
Sparking a Debate
As these accusations circulate, the debate over the role of schools intensifies. It remains to be seen how Crossroads responds and if this saga will prompt a larger dialogue about the nature of “progressive education.”
