Re: I need your thoughts on the dark side of technology

The issue of running people over was probably taken more seriously when it was trains killing both people and livestock. Back then there was a handful of engineers who operated trains and everybody else was a potential victim who had no experience at being a locomotive engineer. The train was like a technological demon that could kill all in its path. Once cars became common, everyone could experience being in control and convince themselves that they were good and careful drivers, so obviously that cars weren't the problem, bad drivers were.
