Articles about the inadequacy of human drivers are getting confused for articles about driverless cars.
It seems we are approaching an inflection point where we need to change the terminology for automated vehicles to avoid confusing the conversation.

This 2 year old piece is NobodyisFlyingthePlane writ large. Its not just whats wrong with politics society and culture, it’s ‘everything is wrong’. Roy Scranton, the author, says we have to accept that the whole damn world is doomed and nothing can get better until we see that.
It’s thought provoking in a way that few other doomsayers are. It reminds me of Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, though I wouldn’t call him that.
I think Quinn got at the real issue more accurately, but Scranton’s piece is more prosaic and perfectly targeted to the children of now.
