JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS AN AGENDA FOR WANTING SOMETHING DOESN’T MEAN THAT THE THING THEY WANT IS WRONG
As I have said before, just because someone has a platform on the internet for expressing his opinions doesn’t mean those opinions have more validity than any others. And just because some opinionated person comes up with his own reason for wanting something doesn’t necessarily mean that the thing they want is bad.
What am I talking about? Some people have suggested that if there are self-driving cars, there could be fewer vehicles per capita, since fleets of them could be on hand to be deployed only when called upon. This would mean less traffic, less pollution, fewer cars being built, and safer streets. Those are all worthy goals, in my opinion.
A few commentators have taken the idea one step further and suggested that self driving cars would, if deployed communally and not owned individually, eliminate the need for personally controlled transportation and, consequently, make it possible to eliminate individually driven vehicles. Naturally, a few commentators have reacted negatively to the suggestion that individual driving would be banned.
It’s all a bit involved for me. I’m not going to get into the political implications of it. I think driverless cars will be good for individuals and for our country. I’m going to leave it at that.
