So if there was an internet 120 years ago, we'd be able to go to the archives and find threads about "I will ride my horse to work, thank you"
About banning the noisy, smelly things that scare horses and threaten the livelihood of those in the Livery Stable business, and how walking through horse shit is just so much better.

The future is coming, and it's free and efficient, and the user experience is so much better, even though all the nightmare technologies are in place.

Most people will never drive, because the future is in densely packed cities, where walking and public transportation can take you anywhere.
Every second of every day of every life will be monitored and recorded.
Which means a crime rate of zero.
Families will return to human culture after being exiled by capitalism.
It's going to be beautiful

Use your imagination, no hunger, no want, what do you imagine as the ultimate user experience, as a user of society?

No struggle, no want, no heroes, no villains. Just fat and happy consumers.

Can a robot even tell if a road is icy? Can a robot rock a vehicle to get unstuck?

Can a robot know when a line of cars is a funeral procession? Can a robot know when to give up on an obstruction and turn around? Can a robot tell when a road is flooded? Can a robot see deer on the side of the road and slow down? What will a robot do about deer in the road? When robot cars are at 4 ways stops crossing path with a human driver, how does one vehicle wave the other thru?

Can a robot vehicle plan a route to avoid left turns?

When a robot screws up, who pays the ticket?
They use odometry and laser lights to construct 3D models of the environment around that car in real time to navigate. They're not just driving based on a GPS map. It's the same tech used to make the cars that automatically parallel park or stop if something jumps out 10 feet in front of you that exists already. Ironically enough these things have faster reaction times and are generally safer than you are operating a motor vehicle.

Don't leave out being personally chipped. No need for money, or silly checkout counters.

Life in a densely packed city, who can imagine anything better than that??

Fuck.

It started a while back, the title "citizen" being replaced by "consumer."

It's the future baby, and it's going to be beautiful.

And the reason it's going to happen, is because people are going to make that choice, because it's what they want.
Of course, you can reject the future, next time you need surgery, tell em to hold the anesthetic, and give you something to bite down on, because you like it old school....

Do you which class of people in the US commits suicide the most?
You're thinking "Veterans", it's farmers .
Farmers in the US commit suicide at twice the rate veterans do.

People are happy in the big city, it's the best.
The most important factor in happiness, is our connections with other people, we are social animals, without society, we wither and die miserable.

A big dense city provides us with the environment that is most likely to provide us with meaningful human contact.
That's why people love it.
