Autonomous vehicles will also accomplish these things.
- Reduce the importation of oil, and end oil importation from The Middle East through creating economic conditions that favor electric vehicles.1
- Consequently make irrelevant the cultural conflict between Judeo-Christian and Islamic cultures that dominates global politics and trade today.2
- Remove the root source of terrorism.3
- Bankrupt many Middle Eastern economies.4
- Remove the means by which most municipalities collect a substantial amount of their revenue5
- Initially put 7 million people out of work in America, and more like thirty million internationally.6
- On a more personal note, relieve parents of having to spend their entire lives being chauffeurs for their kids.
- Autonomous vehicles will eventually marginalize automobile enthusiasm in America and the rest of the world. Automobile enthusiasm in 50 years will look like what horse enthusiasm looks like today.7
