“why do some want to destroy it [Uber]?” The simplified answer is: Rising inequality (both wrt incomes and wealth) is one of the main problems we face. And Uber is contributing to it. For example, working for Uber does not pay your pension, your health care, or unemployment benfits.

Maybe the gig economy exemplified by Uber can work, but then only in combination with other ideas such as universal basic income and universal single payer health care.
