Communism + Capitalism = Breakup. Musks’ Ex Grimes Spotted Reading “Communist Manifesto” By Karl Marx In Los Angeles.

Maybe Elon Musk had less in common with his ex-girlfirend and mother of his young child than he thought. 

Power couple Musk and Grimes recently broke up, took a break, consciously uncoupled, whatever the celebrity phrase of the day is, they are no longer exclusive. 

So just so you get a sense of what’s going on post breakup, everyone whose followed Musk’s career knows that the current word’s richest person with a net worth above $200 billion is what you would call a very successful capitalist.

If Grimes’ high profile reading habits define her philosophy, she would be essentially the opposite of a capitalist, as she was spotted in downton Los Angeles Friday reading “Communist Manifesto.”  It was the first time she was seen in public since the breakup, so she was extremely strategic to make sure what photographers would see her doing. 

Subtle would not describe Grimes’ appearance.  On top of the shocking book she appears to be breezing through as if it were the latest issue of US Weekly, she is dressed in a space age grunge ensemble that looks like something Storm Troopers would wear on an intergalactic date night. 

Since Grimes and Musk share a child together named X Æ A-Xii Musk, it’s not like they can cut the cord and not see each other going forward. 

Looks like there could be quite the philosophical tug of war going on in as they determine how to teach the young child about economics and government.
