Let’s Talk About Self-Driving Cars

I get the advantages of self-driving cars, but no one is discussing the psychological disadvantages, and I find that reckless.

The thing that all of this enthusiasm misses is that being a competent driver — in control of a machine — is an *important* skill that will be lost. When we go from being a nation of drivers to being a nation of passengers, we lose something very important. Specifically, more of our capability and self-reliance.

We don’t need more passengers in our society. We need more people who know how to *do* things.
