But the myth of America is carefully entwined with the concept of driving. The car equals freedom. And while turning over the duties driving to a robot might appear to free us to do things in the car we weren’t able to previously, for many that level of automation is anathema to traditional American values like individual liberty.

Amtrak can be better! Tell your local, state and national elected officials to support a more robust rail system. Join NARP and your local rail advocacy organization.

Charlie, look up the concept of an echo chamber. And then make yourself a better rail advocate by making sure you leave yours and never occupy it again.
